I have PCOS! But luckily I had a great doctor that diagnosed it young (13) and have been treated for it ever since – I still may have difficulty getting pregnant but since I have been treated since an early age I have a higher likelyhood of conceiving without fertility treatments!

I have a great specialist that I work with now who is very knowledgeable and I will stay with her throughout trying to conceive!

I second everyone’s opinion about seeing a specialists – GPs can’t know everything and often female fertility issues can be under diagnosed! A lot of these conditions can be problematic fertility wise if left untreated so definitely find someone who can diagnose you properly instead of saying – I think you haven’t been ovulating.

Good Luck!

I hope the best for you! I also worry about this…. I’m 6 weeks out from having a 5″ endometrioma removed from my ovary, plus a boatload of other problems. 🙁

More recently, I sort of came to terms with the fact that if we can’t get pregnant, it’s for a reason…and probably because both of us have some nasty diseases in our families, most of which are genetic and theres a good chance they could be passed on to our kiddos.

It’s a tough cookie to swallow, but I’m getting better with coping with the idea, and think of all of the toys we can have (we both have snowmobiles now)….and vacations! Of course we’d rather have a couple rugrats to spend our money on, but we will make the best out of life together if we cannot.

We are concentrating on building our house, and me finishing grad school (2 more years), and if the stars align, we’ll be having a baby soon after!

this has been a huge concern of mine for some time now and it’s good to know i’m not alone!  my Fiance and i both really want children (sooner rather than later!) and i just have this feeling that it’s going to be a struggle for me.  i’m underweight which i know can present a problem but otherwise healthy.  i’m not sure why i have such an intense fear.  my mother had no problem with fertility…i’m one of six children!  that said, my oldest sister struggled before conceiving her first and she is the healthiest, most grounded person i know.  she and her husband had to resort to fertility treatments and luckily were eventually successful.  then again, her second baby was a total surprise and was conceived while she was on birth control!  ahhh…so confusing….

good to know I am not the only one with worries, although my hubby tells me not to stress, people get pregnant when they are least stressed

I got married late, I am now 39 married goin gon 5 months; we saw a specialist one day after the honeymoon and it overwhelmed us, we had tests one after the other, told I had to take hormone shots; then one day we visited my brother and our cousin couldnt make it becuase she had some spotting and was found to be pregnant at age 42, making her a mom at age 43; we are both Catholic and apprehensive about thinking of IVF without giving it adequate time; but starting IVF one week after we got married was a bit much to take and when we heard my cousins story we took it as a sign to slow down and enjoy our life together for a bit; we were long distance quite a bit and didnt even give it adequate time just to try things naturally


I moved to England two months ago, so one month was inhibited by family being in town for the wedding; couldn’t have nookie with family in the next room; then we had one month together, we were apart for the next month while my hubby got settled in England , then for two months I had a horrible time adjusting to a new life in England so the babymaking activities weren’t exactly happening; so now everytime, I get my periods ,we try to go at it like rabbits next cycle; the pressure is on because my hubby came form a small family, mine was big, and he wants a big family


here’s to everyone hoping for a healthy baby; I think society has been kind women are able to have careers now, but it’s a double edged sword I delayed my settling down and I am just hoping and praying it’s not late. Deep down, I know everything will work out, but it doesnt help my fears.


So, yes, I worry, I dont want to wait too late for IVF, but we really hope to conceive the good oldfashioned natural way. Well, time will tell, it’s a whole new field out there nowadays a lot of ethics involved, we dont believe in termination either when the doc we visited asked if termination was an option, usually they may implant 4 eggs and then terminate the embryos that are found abnormal.


So, now everytime, my period is done we got at it like rabbits everyday til the next time I get my period. Best wishes to everyone here.
