Are you serious? - August 12

17??? What's this world coming to...


amanda - August 12

yes actually iam serious..what is wrong with it as long as we are emotionally and finacially ready?


honest answer - August 12

Amanda. I imagine that most people (especially people my age - 32) remember when we were 17 and relate that to remarks like "are you serious?" made. When and if you are ready is something that only you and your husband can decide. I would have to say that I have been trying for just under a year and I am considering a dr visit. If you are regular and have exhausted all other options you should maybe seek medical advice. I'm not a dr but at 17 I would think that you should have less problems getting pg that I would.

Hi Amanda! Don't worry sweetie.. Some of the people on this board choose to be judgemental over someone's situation as opposed to being sympathetic and giving advice.. I don't think you logged on to this board to get judged on what you're doing because of your age, you want answers to your questions about TTC. I wish some people would please answer the questions without adding in your two cents about what YOU feel is right or not right. Anyways, Amanda, if you've been trying for 18 months to have a baby, I would be getting to the doctor as soon as possible. Not because I am concerned that something is really wrong, it's just wouldn't you like to find out if there is something so that you can start taking some action to fix it? Have your husband and yourself tested just to make sure. There are many medications available that can be that could help you conceive quicker. If you're not ovulating, than you can't get pregnant, right? (which is what my problem was) So, go to the doctor, trust me, you may be scared about the outcome, but knowing is better than worrying and trying to guess what the problem is. Please let me know how it goes.. Take care and baby dust to you! I sounds like you really have it together for your age and I wish for you everything you want.

I would go get both of you tested. How old is your husband? Perhaps if he is older it could be part of the trouble. Did you really get married when you were 14?


amanda - August 13
