Hello, I just have 1 question. What is the youngest age I  can get help getting pregnant from my gp?

Ask your GP :): Your profile says you are 21 years old and live in Australia: I don't know if there are specific firm practices there regarding age, but in the US there is no "age cutoff" that's universally observed.
