I totally understand this. I'm nearly 27 and while I totally don't feel old generally I get scared that biologically my most fertile years are already behind me, especially as I want a few. Also my periods were about every 2 months and really heavy before I went on the pill so I fee like I need to try sooner rather than later. On the plus side hubby can't wait so no worries there.

I suppose you can't live your life afraid of what might or might not happen, as making such an important decision to soon could be the mistake too. Hope everything's ok with your hubby anniepie

I STILL worry about this and I already have 1. I worry about secondary infertility. It's my own fault for googling and reading areas in this forum that I shouldn't.

Just remember ladies, it is a very small percentage of women that aren't able to have babies. And there are so many alternative ways to have them now with the fertility treatments, etc. Try to stay positive!! I'm sure it will happen for each and every one of you.

I'm a little worried sometimes. I know my mom was very fertile, my sister seems to be, and I think I should be okay too but you just get those little niggling feelings.

I'm having a laparoscopic surgery on my ovary in 2 weeks, what if it something happens? Worse case scenario, what if I have to loose my ovary? They Dr. says it shouldn't affect fertility, but you just never know.
I try not to indulge in those thoughts too much, just a little to make myself aware of the possibility. I'm sure surgery will go fine, they'll remove what they need to, I'll keep both ovaries, and hopefully in a couple months I can get a BFP.

I worry about this as I have had chemotherapy and there wasn't time to freeze my eggs. I came off the pill about 4 weeks ago and just had a period. Also am going to have an ultrasound scan soon to see if I am still ovulating. Just keep thinking positive

I too am afraid that with my age (31) that it will play a factor in TTC.

I am also afraid that my periods will be irratic and not scheduled. I just went off the pill last month after being on it for 13 years. I don't remember what my periods were like before - I am assumming normal - I don't really remember them being late or anything. I had a withdrawl bleed now just waiting on AF to *hopefully* appear next tuesday - which would mean that I would continue my regular 28 day cycle just liek when I was on the pill.

I am just a worrier by nature. I worry alot. I am a worry wart - I will always find something to worry about no matter what the case!!

LOL I'm a complete worry wart too! I'm 32, so age is a big factor for me. But like you, I also worry about my periods... When I'm chugging along with no interference, I'm actually generally ok- fairly regular, and nothing too bad. But, I'm currently on the mini pill micronor and haven't had a period in over a year... I was on this pill before, and when I came off it before, I had an almost constant period for 6 months (a few days respite here and there)- after months of tests, the docs put me back on the pill (combined pill which I shouldn't really be on!) to regulate my periods... So a year after coming off, I was sorted... Not sure what they'll do this time if I have the same problem...

I really keep changing my mind about what to do about the pill at the moment. I don't have a date for TTC, and still trying to pin OH down for a rough timescale. I've been OK on my pill the last year, but the last few months have been hell, with pregnancy symptoms for the last 6 weeks- I was completely convinced I was pregnant but all (5) tests were BFN!! I'm now in so much pain with my boobs I'm seriously thinking of coming off... I also just like the idea of having a break from pumping hormones into my body!

BUT- I don't want to have a constant period for no reason, esp with a holiday on the horizon (and no periods are useful for that!)
I don't want to use another form of contraception (in the form of condoms, coil, implant, injection...)
Considering talking to OH about NTNP, but I'm in 2 minds about whether I'm ok about not getting married before TTC- largely I'm thinking I just don't want to wait anymore, and not sure even that OH will ever get round to asking me...

I'm a worry-wart too snowflake!! I also think about this all the time, eventhough i don't think that there is anything that runs in the family that should be a problem for us. I think it is so bothersome b/c I want a family so bad that I have to think about what it would be like if I couldn't?
