Scared I won't be able to have a baby.

Hi
I am worried that I won't be able to have children, I have had problems with my periods for the 9 years I have had them always bleeding inbetween severe pains and I have been with my boyfriend for a year and a half and we think I had a early miscarriage but ever since then I don't seem to be getting pregnant. Also infertility runs in my family, I have been to the doctors and they are no help they wont do anything not even give me blood tests I want to have children so much and I'm just scared my body won't let me for some reason.
Jess.

Re: Scared I won't be able to have a baby.

You might need to find a different family doctor. Keep a record of how long you've been trying to conceive and what your menstrual cycles are like, go back, and insist that you get checked. It could be something relatively easy to fix.

Re: Scared I won't be able to have a baby.

My mother has five sisters. Only my mother and one aunt could conceive. My sister has a beautiful baby boy and yet I am strongly considered infertile. I have periods which last a month and then nothing for months after. It may have to do with my weight, but I am considered healthy because of my genetic body type.
I was told by many doctors pregnancy is highly doubtful, and during an exam my gynecologist thought I may have miscarried (I am confused as to how this happened)
Through all this I have seen two doctors who say with hormone therapy it is likely I can conceive. I wish I could offer advice but all I can do is assure you, you are not alone and I hope you have the chance for such a blessing. You are in my thoughts.

Re: Scared I won't be able to have a baby.

We have had luck taking the herb "vitex", and some homeopathic tinctures might also be of assistance.

Re: Scared I won't be able to have a baby.

Hello There-
So sorry to hear about your situation- But all hope is not lost! My hubby & I have been together for 14yrs and never gotten pregnant. I always felt like something was wrong, just a gut feeling, but it wasn’t until the past 3yrs that I was certain. We started to actually try and get pregnant about 3-4yrs ago w/ no luck at all. My periods have gotten progressively worse over the years- very heavy, painful, extended amounts of time,etc. I’ve seen a couple different OBGYNs and have had many tests done. Everything comes back fine or “inconclusive”. Pretty much every OBGYN has told me everything “should” be fine. I’ve was given Clomid but that didn’t help either. Basically I was told “that my periods are probably bad because I have never had children”.. Really?!!
I had a gut feeling that something else was going on but my doctors weren’t progressively looking into it. I finally decided to see a specialist even though our insurance didn’t cover it. We are seeing a Reproductive Endocrinologist (RE) and he has been the best. Just within the first 2 visit he was able to diagnose our extended unexplained infertility. First off I did have fibroids in my uterus that had gone unrecognized by my previous OBGYNs- they eventually needed to be surgically removed. because they could be precancerous and could cause miscarriages.The growths were also cause for my very horrible period symptoms. Second, the RE took a very detailed medical history & came to the conclusion that a previous car accident I was in left scar tissue on my fallopian tubes making it difficult for them to pick up my eggs. Having to pay out of pocket for this specialist was well worth it! We are now undergoing IVF for the first time. Bottom line is, never lose hope & be your own advocate when it comes to your health. If you feel like there is something wrong, listen to your intuition and seek BETTER medical help. Eventually you will find the right doctor for you & it will make all the difference in the world. Good luck w/ everything!

Jess.
Do you have any other symptoms? Have you had a transvaginal ultrasound? They can check out your lady bits and see if there is any evidence there.

Re: Scared I won't be able to have a baby.

Hi, Just wanted to tell you my story. we were without a baby for 4 1/2 years. when we went to doctors found out that i have few large fibroids which were interfering with the conception and my husband's sperm count was low. i had to go through a myomactomy which i did. after that also no success we did a dye test and found out that one of my tubes had got blocked due to the surgery. did 2 IUI's, still could not get conceived. doctor told me to consider IVF but said my uterus is with lot of scars and was not sure of the success rate. I started praying to Jesus so hard. cried and prayed to Jesus asking for a baby. He gave me a baby boy and i Named him Joshua. please friends, have faith in Jesus and he will never never let you down.

Unhappy Re: Scared I won't be able to have a baby.

Hello,

I may also never have children Me and hubby have been trying for 3 years now. I was pregnant once and miscarried at 5 weeks. We have undergone 2 rounds of IVF each failed. I also have a low AMH.

I have rheumatoid arthritis, Anti-thyroid antibodies (ATA's) with a funny functioning thyroid and Antinuclear (ANA's) antibodies speckled 1:640. These together can cause infertility.

I suggest you get tested for these things as they can cause unexplained infertility!

We are still going to try ivf and have appointments with an Endocrinologist in the hope that he can help me get the baby we so strongly desire...
