Hello, I am 38 until next month and I have yet to be able to conceive a child. I have been with my husband for almost 18yrs. He has two girls from a prior marrige. Even before I got with my husband I should have been able to have a child lets just say I was a firery girl back then. I was told in high school I had ovarian cysts but then when I went to the dr again in 2006 I was told I no longer had them. I do believe there is something that is keeping me from conceiving but what is the question. I am a step grandmother and great aunt before I am a biomother

At 38 years old, it is time to see a specialist for an infertility evaluation. Call you OBGYN and ask for a consultation to discuss infertility.
