My Fiance and I have been trying to conceive lately but I have been thinking and I have some questions...

Ok so here it goes( I want only SERIOUS and HELPFUL answers, no downing or anything)

I am 21 and he is 49... I know , I know.. To me love has no age but back to subject. I have 2 cervixes, 2 vaginas, and 2 uteruses. I also had, yes HAD 4 ovaries also known as twin inside a twin... 2 were taken out when I was 12.

Can anyone help me with this? and tell me if it is even possible to get pregnant.. We have only been trying for a month now but I can't see a normal OB/GYN doctor as I am American and live in Canada without insurance (living on a visitors visa)

I have been on a whole grain, 3 cups a day of fruit and lots of veggie diet to try and boost my fertility. Been trying to exercise a bit. Haven't been stressing over this at all just want answers or just some people who I can talk to about all this. So please anyone who can help or even is in the same situation as me leave a reply Thanks.

Hi sunburstttc2014,

I was able to find this article that says duplication of the reproductive tract does not interfere with your ability to conceive, but it may put you at higher risk for pregnancy complications. I would suggest trying to work out a way to get in with an OB/GYN because you have a higher likelihood of having a complicated pregnancy.

It sounds like you are making good lifestyle choices to help raise your chances of conceiving. You might want to take a look around our A Couple's Guide: Trying to Conceive area of our Health & Pregnancy Center . You can find a lot of helpful information from tips for charting your cycle to articles on pregnancy prep and preconception care.

Best wishes,
Atti
