The “gut feeling,” when you have no other indicators of infertility, is not accurate. Trust me on that one.
ETA: Not to say its not normal to have those feelings. But I agree with PPs…there’s no point in worrying if you haven’t started trying yet.

I definitely have the little worry in my head that I’ll have issues when Darling Husband and I TTC.
My mom had fertility issues and me and both of my siblings are fertility treatment babies (I took 4 months of treatment to conceive, my sister took 9 months, and my brother took 18 months).
I am so much exactly like my mom in so many ways that I’m worried I’ll share this difficulty with her too.

@vmec: I feel similar to you. I hope with all my heart that we are very infertile because I don’t want a mistake I make in taking my BC to get me pregnant after we’ve had so many discussions about not wanting kids.
His parents had an extremely difficult time conceiving so hopefully that’s genetic.

I think its definitely normal to worry about the possibility that you might have fertility issues, especially if you know someone who has been through it. I wasnt sure how long it would take us to conceive and didnt want to wait too long to start trying just in case there were issues. But thankfully we got pregnant before we even started trying, hopefully it will be that easy again next time.
