    Wanting to get pregnant.

    When I was 19, I was on the depo shot and I found myself pregnant. four months later I lost my baby to a miscarraige. My father was too embarassed to take me to the hospital because I wasnt married, and the guy who I was fathering the child ran out on me. When I was 21 I was having symptoms of tss while on my menstral cycle, I went to the E.R. and had a papsmear(sp?). The doctor said I did not have tss but the scarring he saw in there may prevent me from having children. Despite this I have tried for the last 2 1/2 years to conceive with no luck. any ideas on what I can do would be greatly apprieciated!

    From our expert:

    The general consensus is that, if you are under 35, you should attempt conception by having regular, unprotected intercourse for at least 12 months. After 12 months, if you have not achieved a pregnancy, then you should visit your ob-gyn. If you are 35 or over, the consensus is to try via regular intercourse for at least 6 months before visiting your ob-gyn.

    Have you been talking to your ob/gyn? If not, it's time for an appointment.
