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
