Trying to have a Baby

Brandi-Lynn - April 19

i'm 25 and ready to have a baby. i used to get regular periods monthly until about 5 years ago when they suddenly stopped. i've been to many different doctors trying to get answers and leaving empty handed each time. i finally found a wonderful doctor that gave me some answers a few months ago. Apparently i have very very low estrogen in my body, but everything else is working just fine. he had a look at my fallopian tubes and i have 6 eggs in one and 8 in another, but they just arent getting released during my lack of a monthly period. he also had me take estrogen pills to build the lining of my uterus and then progesterone to make it shed, causing a period. i have done this 2 times now with no luck of a period. he finally told me to come back when we are ready to get pregnant and he will do a little "tweaking" then and that im one of the easiest cases to help in getting pregnant. he also told me that i have a low chance of getting pregnant on my own, but it could still happen. we've been only trying for a few months just to see, but we really want it to happen soon. Is anyone else having a similar problem to this of not having a period or low estrogen in there body? im worried that even with the doctors help its still going to be tough.

Hi Brandi, just wanted to tell you to stay positive. Every lady TTC, even ones without problems, fears not being able to have a baby. Truth is, you just gotta go with a positive attitude and try. It may take a while and it may be hard or it may happen for you quickly, but you dont know until you try. It's good you are looking into it now. I had 3 years of surgery and treatment pre-TTC in preparation for the big event, and one year of TTC before I got PG. (I am 20 wks now). Good luck!
