    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    I have never had irregular periods or any other kind of female troubles. I got off the pill 2 years ago and still no baby. I'm 29 years old. I feel like a failure because I havn't gotten pregnant yet. I hate it when people ask when we are going to have kids or if I'm prego yet. I want to scream!!! I have not been to the dr. yet to see if anything is wrong. I think it's because I don't want to hear it. I feel like I'm not fulfilling my obligation as a woman.

    Hello MonDins and thank you for posting. Did you know that half of the fertility issues are due to the male partner? I know you're claiming "ownership" of the fertility challenge, but until a doctor has checked you both, you don't actually know that.

    This article, Should I Have Infertility Testing? may be helpful. The Getting Pregnant Quiz does say that the longer women wait, the more their chances go down. At age 20, you have a 90% chance of conceiving after a year. At age 30, it drops to 70%, and more still by the time you reach 35.

    Let us know how you're doing,

    Byroney
