I don’t have EDS, or any other medial issue that I know of but I just wanted to say how very sorry I am πŸ™ What a terrible thing to know, and what a terrible way to find out. You should make an appointment with your doctor to more fully discuss this. 

<3 hugs your way!

Oh sweetie, I’m sorry! First and foremost, you need to find a doctor to help you deal with this. Maybe you could even find a fertility specialist who deals with EDS? I think you need to find out some more info before you can move forward with a plan. ((hugs))

I saw that episode and thought it was sad, (and terrible that she never said anything to her husband about it), but this is the real world.  I can’t believe your doctors would never have mentioned this.  I don’t have any advice, but wanted to give you an e-hug and say I’m sorry you’re dealing with this, and sorry that you had to find out from a medical drama. πŸ™

I’m so sorry.  That’s a really terrible way to make that kind of discovery.

If you can, I would make an appointment to speak with an OB/GYN who specializes in difficult pregnancies and see what he or she has to say.  There may be precautions or steps you can take.

Keep in mind, too, that this one woman isn’t you.  There may be all kinds of factors influencing her fertility besides the EDS that weren’t mentioned in the show, or she may have a more severe case than you do, or…  The list is endless. 

Bottom line, don’t assume anything until you’ve had a detailed conversation with a doctor who knows you, your symptoms, etc.

Oh my. I’m so sorry. But I wouldn’t base my ability to produce children on a tv show or internet research. I would make an appt with my doc and ask to be referred to a specialist so they can give you your REAL chances. So sorry πŸ™

Oh I’m so sorry.

I have an inkling of how you feel because like you & your husband my husband and I desperately want kids of our own. We have both felt like we will have many complications conceiving that really are quite justified even though there is nothing medically proving it yet.

All I can say is I agree that you should talk to your doctor. Have you guys been TTC? I find it hard to believe that your doctor would not have mentioned this fact due to your condition. And I would think that like any medical condition everyone is different. Maybe you will be lucky and have ease of conception despite the facts of EDS!

Happy thoughts! πŸ™‚

Wait, did you get this info from actual doctors on TV, or from a fictional over-dramatized TV show? You should definitely do actual research on this before condemning yourself to not having children. Talk to your doctor instead of listening to a worst-case-scenario on TV that may not be real/apply to you.

Aw, I’m so sorry! You must be so sad to hear this news! As somebody battling fertility issues and having gone thru a miscarriage, I know how it feels to hear bad news related to conceiving and delivering a healthy baby.  Did the research show stats on carrying full-term? What is the ratio of miscarriages to full-term, healthy babies? I’m so sorry. Will you go see a doctor about this? I would recommend a fertility doc, not your OBGYN. Hang in there. ((Hugs))

Wow. Just try and stay positive, people beat terrible odds everyday. There was a girl on Top model some years back who had a baby after she had been told she couldnt have babies because of her severe endometriosis and she wasnt even TTC so you never know maybe your EDS might not cause miscarriages for you

@crayfish: Ditto.

Don’t get your medical information from a dramatic TV show, or the internet.  Go talk to a doctor, or a specialist.  Chances are that is worst case scenario! Good luck and lots of hugs!
