I was just wondering if anyone else has concerns about being able to have children?
I don’t know why but ever since I was younger I’ve always had a gut feeling that I would not be able to have children. I know that FH and I both want them and I would love to have at least two but my concerns have resurfaced these past few months.
I have an extremely irregular period. I get my period ever other week (no lie) if I’m not on the pill. I started taking the pill when I was 17 (also started menstrating rather old) to help regulate my period but I hated taking it so I went off after a few years. By about the second month of being off the pill I started getting my period sooner and sooner until it was back to ever other week. I have since gone back on the pill. This past month I have gotten my period 3 times. I forgot my pill two days and have therefore got my period (full 7 days each time, not spotting). I’m really concerned that once it is time to have children I’m not going to be able to.
When I went back on the pill this last time I expressed my concerned with my doctor. I thought I was running out of eggs (since we are only born with so many). He told me that I was actually not even ovulating and therefore not releasing any so I probablly have more left. He told me that I wouldn’t be able to in the next year or so (thinking that was how long it should take to regulate) and that I should be able to it just might be more difficult.
However, this was about 2 years ago and I’m affraid that he may have been wrong. I don’t understand how I am going to be able to have children and ovulate if missing my pill for a day or two causes me to get a full period!
Anyone else have similar concerns or situation?
