Hi, Ive just turned 22 and my OH will be 49 in may, we've been going out for 5 years and are in a stable and loving relationship. We've recently been talking about me coming off Microgynon 30 at the end of april 2013 and starting to TTC from May 2013.
Ideally I'd like to come off at the end of September this year but OH wants to wait.
I'm worried we're leaving it too late because of his age I have red lots of stories that older partners are able to get there OH's pregnant. Am I just thinking into things too much?
I know it feels like ages but it is only a little over a year now. Why does he want to wait? Has he got children from a previous relationship? It is only a little while longer to wait. I was also going to be TTC in sept this year but we have set it back to may next as we have just got engaged and planning the wedding for this time next year. Have you got anything that will keep your mind busy until it is time to TTC?
I think my OH wants to wait as he said about getting engaged oct/nov time. Which i suppose is ok, I think it's just because I'm an inpatient person which doesn't help. We've talked and I'm going to come off BCP in march so that I have time to regulate my cycle before trying in may . So that's a plus! I have my holiday at the beginning of sept to keep me busy and It will be magical if or when we bring our child into the world.
men are fertile longer than women are, I'm not sure if the chances for genetic disorders goes up with age as it does for women though. You may want to do a bit of research on the matter or seek out the opinion of a fertility counselor or a genetic disorder specialist, just to be safe
My cousin is in her 20s and her husband is in her 40s. They have been having a difficult time TTC so her husband went and had his sperm count checked and it came back good. My cousin has had multiple problems with her ovaries since a young age so it wasn't really a surprise that the fertility problems were on her side. But I just thought it might help ease your mind knowing that her husband is in his 40s and still has a good sperm count for TTC.
