TWO YEARS.. and can't wait.

Hi. I'm 24 years old and me and DB had been trying for two years now. I know I am young and DB is the same age as me but we decided we want to have kids early. We were careful when I was in college not to get me pregnant but after I graduated in 2008 and up until now, we have not succeeded. We both have full-time jobs and is opening a business real soon. The only thing missing in our lives is our little angel we've been waiting for two years now.

I went to an OB three months back and after an ultrasound I found out my womb is inverted. She said it's not impossible to get pregnant but it will be difficult. From then on, I always end up emotional when my period comes. I don't want to say I've lost hope but it's depressing everytime. I'm praying to God for a miracle to come in my life because I feel guilty that I'm hardly capable of bearing a baby when DB wants it so badly since last year. I think I've found a place for support here. Thank you for welcoming me around and congratulations to those who have succeeded. I'm waiting for that moment in my life which for sure, I will share to everyone around here.

God bless!

Hello Babywhereareyou and welcome!

I am sorry to hear that after you two carefully planned things so you finished college, got jobs, and are now starting a business, you still don't have any children. You both seem very responsible and sound like you'd be excellent parents.

I would encourage you to see a fertility specialist. I'm not sure if you meant you have a Tilted Backwards or Retroflexed Uterus , but if you do, it's not your TTC (trying to conceive) problem. The article says, "For many years, doctors erroneously thought that a woman with a tilted uterus was more likely to suffer from infertility and cramps," but now they know that there is "no added risk of miscarriage or bleeding related to uterine retroflexion."

You also do not mention any testing being done on your DB. Many women take responsibility for infertility issues even when they may not be the cause. According to the Infertility Treatment Slideshow , "In about 40% of the infertile couples, the cause is traced to the man." This is why it's important for you both to get checked out.

You may also want to post on our TTC Community and our Infertility Treatment community for more support.

Please let us know how you're doing,

Thank you! Yes, that's what I meant Tilted Backwards Uterus. DB haven't gone to the doctor just yet but I will tell him to if the year ends and no BFP yet.

If you've been trying for over a year, then you should get your OB to refer you to a specialist. A reproductive endocrinologist has more equipment and training than a regular MD. Definitely get your DB to have a semen analysis.

thank you! I will surely visit my OB again. I have a fear of hearing more bad news but me and DB will have to face it so we can have all the help we can get.
