Hello everyone Smile



Not sure if anyone can offer any advice or not, but for the last few years, I have had almost a 'fear' that I will be infertile when my partner and I start trying for a child. I am 23 years old and in a loving relationship of 3 years. We both want children in the future but obviously not until I graduate (in 3 months) and start a full time job and get a house, married etc! There have been no indications that I am infertile at all, I just feel like it is such an out of body experience that maybe I don't feel like my body could do such a magical thing?!



I have enquired to doctors of my worry and whether you can do a test, but they all say not to bother until you are at least trying for a year! I have had a transvaginal ultrasound and been to a gynecologist and both have come back with no issues (I had experienced breakthrough whilst on the Pill. Sorry if TMI!) I also have regular pap smears that have always come back fine. I also have been on the pill since I was 16 so I also worry that the Pill will affect my fertility, even though I know that no evidence has shown it has!



Is this a common worry among women? I suppose I am just looking for some reassurance or stories to put my mind at ease!

Most docs say you shouldn't worry until after an entire year of trying to conceive with no success. But, if it’s been nine months or so and you’re worried something’s wrong, don't hesitate to ask your OB to refer you to a reproductive endocrinologist (R.E.)for some tests. If there’s a physiological reason you’re not conceiving you can start exploring your options, and if the tests come back normal you can relax and keep at it. The one exception: If you’re over 35, you might want to visit a specialist after just six months of TTC. Fertility starts to decline at this point, and by discovering any problems early you can avoid wasting time.

Docsusually recommend fertility tests if a woman can't get pregnant after  12 months of regular intercourse. So you stillhave lots of time to relax.  Here is agood source where you can read more on fertility issues:  click and read Enjoy
