I was about 37. I had multiple issues, age of my eggs was one of them. But, every woman is different, so you can’t really go by others. My friend got pregnant at 38 on her second try.

I was 32 last year when I miscarried and they found over a dozen fibroids. Had surgery for them last November, but he had to take out my right fallopian tube. Now I have endometriosis (mild) and cysts on my right ovary so I’m back on the pill to shrink the cysts and then we will take fertility drugs very soon to help me ovulate on my left ovary and hopefully I’ll get pregnant within a few months. I never knew I had fibroids and wish I had had an ultrasound done before getting pregnant so I wouldn’t have gotten pregnant and miscarried. (We’re not positive the fibroids caused the miscarriage but it is likely since I had so many!) But even with all of these problems, it seems like our chances are pretty darn good with the help of the fertility doctor that we should have good news in a few months.

Age really isn’t too big of a factor in your early 30’s. Some people (like me) have problems, but most are just fine. Try not to worry about it. And know that if you do happen to have issues, they can do SO many amazing things nowadays to help women conceive. So many options!!! If you can, see if you can have a pelvic ultrasound before ttc to see if everything “looks good” and that may make you feel more at ease. 🙂

About two weeks after my 30th birthday.

A friend of mine went through a surgery and a few rounds of Clomid after trying unsuccessfully for a year.  She is 25.

Well. I was diagnosed with PCOS when I was 19. So I’ve been aware of the implications for a few years. We aren’t yet TTC, but will not be surprised if we need to use drugs such as Clomid, etc, when we do start TTC in a few years. It’s kind of an odd feeling to live with when you’re young as well.

I’ve always thought I’d need help – I’ve had issues with my cycle my whole life.  I was 26 when I found out I have PCOS and went on Clomid.

You can always go talk to your doctor and get all the blood work and testing done just in case.  Even if you’re not TTC for 2 years, it’s always good to go ahead and get the leg work done so you know if you’ll have issues or not.

I was 15 when I was diagnosed with PCOS, but I had most of the yucky symptoms, (other than weight gain,) so in some ways, it was a relief to know what was going on with my body… The specialist I saw at the time explained then that I would likely have trouble conceiving, and I’m 30 now, so I’ve known for a very long time. 

That said, I wouldn’t worry too much – most women have no problems, and conceive within just a few months (there’s a 25% chance of conceiving every month if you have no fertility issues.)  But I agree with CandyNee – if it’s on your mind, go to your doctor now to get blood work and testing done… they can check for signs of PCOS now, hormonal abnormalities, quality of eggs, etc etc.  Then hopefully you’ll have peace of mind for the next couple of years!

My friend was married at age 23, and started trying almost right away. They tried on their own for close to 2 years, so she is now 25 and seeking fertility help. She’s really frustrated because they can’t find anything wrong with either of them. It is a big mystery.
