Vickie - June 29

hi im vickie, me and my partner have been trying for a baby for 3 years now. my periods are totally off mark, they come between 28 days and 3 months. i know this could be a problem for us, but my sister had 2 fail attempts at IVF and my niece was told she cant have children, but she has got one. i would love to go to the doctors for tests to see if im told i cant conceive, but as i am only 20 ive got a feeling they will just tell us to keep trying. we are a very mature couple and just longing for a family. how should i aproach my doctor for advice without him saying we are too young which is what someone has already said to me??

Im in the same boat as you are. You would probably have to go to see a specialist. The obyn usually doesn't want to get someone pregnant unless their like 30 or something. Because I asked for help also and all she talked about is putting me back on the pill and not getting pregnant lets just say I didnt go back to her again,lol. I'm probably going to see a specialist soon thank god. I havent had a cycle for almost 5 months now. I dont know whats going on. Good Luck...

The fact that you're getting your period sometimes every 3 months should be checked into by your gyn regardless of whether you want to get pregnant or not, just because while common, it may be a sign of something else going on. Maybe angle it with her that sometime in the next couple of years you want to start a family and you are concerned and want to find out what's going on now and correct it ...which depending on what it is, make take some time. Good Luck!!!

Research herbal supplements and infertility. Some women take herbal supplements to regulate their periods to become pregnant.
