Decreased, but good.: The fertility rate depends primarily on your age and can be lowered by endometriosis. Seek infertility care if not pregnant after 12 months of unprotected vaginal intercourse at your age. Take Folic Acid 1-5 mg daily and best of luck!

I have been diagnosed with postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome. What are the risks to becoming pregnant and will it worsen my symptoms?

Take care: Take care to stand slowly, to allow your blood pressure and pulse to equilibrate. Dont get dehydrated. Pregnancy will worsen your tachycardia due to the low pressure system of the placenta. You may benefit from a cardiology consult prior to getting pregnant.
