    Hi guys my friend introduced me to the site last night, my partner and i are ttc and i am worried the odds are stacked against us, i have had previous miscarriage with former partner many years ago, my current partner was born with only one testicle and the doctors have said we wont know if this has an affect on fertility until we try, I had chlamydia undiagnosed (due to my lovely ex) for anywhere up to 2 years. I also am over due a cervical smear by about 4 years and am struggling to bring myself to have this done even though i had signs of "changes" on my last test. I am currently trying to pluck up the courage to go and have it done but have reasons for finding it hard. My mum has had cervical cancer so i do know how dangerous it is. Because of all the above do you guys think i'll struggle to concieve? thanks

    Hi Whiteys, I completely understand how you feel. Im trying to conceive too and also had chlamydia a few years back for god knows how long!! Smear test over due too!! I lost a baby a few years back too although I wasnt trying to conceive at the time! Ive been trying to ignore the many many letters from the doctor re the smear but know I just need to go and do it!! Have you done any research on how your partner only having one testicle will effect your chances of conceiving? xxx

    Hello & welcome to BnB!
    Afraid I can't offer any useful advice but I'd also say to get over to the ttc section & there'll be lots of ladies in a similar situation to you who will prob have lots of info!
    I can completely understand why you don't want to go for a smear, but my advice there is to def go asap & hopefully put your mind at ease!
    Me & my DH are ttc too, feel free to message me anytime!

    Hey Whiteys,
    If you think about it, the smear test will be nothing in comparison to any examinations you will have during pregnancy/labour. So, take a deep breath and call to make an appointment as soon as possible! If all is well, you can get on with ttc. If there is a problem, then you can treat it and will have more chances ttc. win-win situation :)
    I'll be thinking of you!!!
