    Only your first sentence is correct.

    Technically, none of your sentences was correct - none of them started with a capital letter and none finished with a punctuation mark.

    I have left your third sentence in place above because I am very surprised that you thought that "get over their through" could be correct. Are you sure that's what you meant to suggest?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Thank you for your concentration, for technical part, I do know that but didn't mean correction but for the middle part;)

    For third sentence I was wrong, I meant to ask for ( get over through their infertility problems), but thank you for your notes

    I can't understand what this means.

    "Get over through" is also incorrect.

    Re: which sentence is more correct

    m3zomo, as you already knew about capital letters and closing punctuation, you should have written your sentences grammatically in post #1 for four reasons:

    1. It is a good habit to get into to write grammatically at all times;

    2. It is a good example to set for other students who might read your thread;

    3. It shows respect for the language and to the teachers and other native speakers here;

    4. It would have saved me having to write this and spend five minutes of my life which I'll never get back.

    Don't use a home-made emoticon to replace a proper punctuation mark. If you want to use a smiley, click on the icon.
