I definitely agree with the above post - ever since I started lurking around forums, I have noticed my fears suddenly escalating for really no reason. But it does kind of make me wonder about oh no, what might happen while we're TTC?

But I keep telling myself that worrying won't solve anything, and that I just need to try and keep it positive, because added stress won't help the TTC process.

I am mostly just curious as to when my cycle will normalize itself once I'm off the BCP. That's my biggest fear - that it'll take forever and my impatience will just cause me to explode. xD I know the realities of other possibilities that I could encounter along the way, but I'm trying to tune them out and like I said, focus on the positive. What's meant to be will be, and I just need to keep myself in check and see how it goes.

Good luck, ladies! xo

I have always been worried before I even came on here and tbh being on here hasn't changed that in anyway as I refuse to look in the other sections!

I have become more worried since charting when I came off BCP as although I have piece of mind of being regular and ovulating (except for this month not sure what is going on) my cycles are only 23 days long which can mean that some months I will ovulate twice which when TTCing will be great but when not I just see it as me loosing even more eggs and my supply being depleated more quickly!

I too am afraid as I am going to be 31 in like 2 weeks. Hubby is younger and will be 29 in 6 weeks.

I read that it takes someone in their early 30's an average of 9 months! I really hope it is shorter than that with me. I am really hoping within 5 cycles!! My 5 cousins all fell pregnant within 3 months and we are all within a few years of eachother. And I know my parents didn't have any problems. So that gives me hope. Just still there always be that doubt in the back of my head....

i am soooo worried even though i am young. we will be using donor sperm and initially iui to ttc. i really hope that i dont have to go onto ivf, it is my biggest worry.
it took my mum 26 year and 13 cycles of ivf tohave me and that was after 17 miscarages (some 2nd tri) and she lost my twin. i get so nervous and upset thinking what she went through.
i also think i dont ovulate, although could mistaken, as i only get a period every 6months or so.
hmmmmm...... =/

I wouldn't worry about it till it doesn't happen to be honest.

I am infertile, I have bilateral tubal occlusion (2 blocked tubes).

I always knew something was wrong.

Unfortunatly though you dont know till you try.

Good luck girls.

It's so easy to say not to worry until you have good reason to but remember if you stress and worry about while you start ttc this could affect you falling pregnant.

I used to worry all the time, I'd been on the pill for 12 years and had had loads of missed pills throughout the years but never fell pregnant. When the time came to ttc at the age of 27 I came off the pill and fell pregnant first cycle so there really is no way of knowing. I'd taken a break from the pill a while back and my cycles ranged from 22 to 46 days! I was so certain I'd have problems getting pregnant.

Since having my dd I've not gone back on the pill and my cycles have settled down to being 32 days. I still get worried about secondary infertility now though. I think it's just one of those things that as women we'll never stop worrying about.

This terrifies me... my husband is already getting older. I don't want to turn this into a years long project!

I agree with swanxxsong and beccad! I’m 34 and I’ve decided not to worry because I really don’t know. I think hanging around TTC forums where people are having a problem was starting to make me worry, but I can’t compare myself to them. I’m just praying that I won’t have issues and if I do that I can deal with them.
