symptoms of not being able to get pregnant

What are the symptoms of you not being able to get pregnant && what can I do to change that?

There are none!

Infertility has no symptoms, except not being able to get pregnant. Your past history of sexually transmitted diseases is important, and your total medical condition,ie. prolactin level, the presence of PCOS, etc. Also, it could be the male partner, not you.

I have been on the NuvaRing for about 3-4 years now, but I have taken it out to conceive. How long will it be until I am able to get pregnant?

No change

The Nuvaring doesn't have much of an effect on infertility after discontinuation. The only birth control that has been proven to have a lasting effect is the Depot Provera. Any given cycle has about a 20% chance of conception. So at age 19 it could take 5-6 months before pregnancy and that would be normal.

Fertility issues can be very frustrating for ladies and can hit you at the very core of your being. This is the sort of thing for which you need a lot of emotional and spiritual support. I would suggest seeking that out at your local church or see if your hospital has support groups. Your OB/GYN can also refer you to a fertility expert if conservative measures have failed.

Remember back to health class where you learned that it takes one to five days after sex for conception to occur. And that once conceived the female's body has no connection-physical or chemical-with the new fetus until it is big enough to be sharing blood and chemicals? That is about ten to fourteen days after conception. Thus, a missed period is the clue that is the most reliable. Test then.

There is always a

Chance. A physician friend just told me an ancedotal story about a women with PCOS, who had not gotten pregnant for 6 years, who was averaging 100 days between periods, who started taking fermented cod liver as a supplement, who got pregnant after two months. Metformin is often used to help also, but not 'natural'. You might look further into each, and decide what makes most sense to you..t

Chances are good

Some women, but not all, have a slight delay in return to fertility after stopping the pill. If your periods were regular before you started taking the pill, chances are they'll return quickly and you'll be fertile. You should begin taking prenatal vitamins with folate before you conceive to prevent certain kinds of birth defects.

The cyst on your ovary will nave no impact on your future ability to get pregnant. In very rare cases surgical procedures for pregnancy termination have been associated with infertility, however that is very unlikely.

at age 35 and above it is usually recommended to undergo an infertility evaluation after 6 months of trying. It is possible that all is normal and that it is just taking you a little longer or that there is an underlying problem such as sperm abnormalities, blocked Fallopian tubes etc. There is no down side about having a check up to make sure all is normal.
