I have had 3 mc 1 aug '14 1 oct'14 and 1 tubal treated with mx shot jan'15 I have 2 older children. Is it common to end up with infertility? Any hope?

Stay hopeful.: The good news is that you have been able to get pregnant in the past and have been successful with 2 pregnancies. As one ages, there can be small changes to ova, which does increase one's risk of miscarriage. Get a thorough check up by your Gynecologist to rule out infection and fibroids, etc. And ensure hormone levels are normal. Best wishes. ...Read more

Am I infertile? My boyfriend and I have used only the withdrawal method while making love for over two years now and we do it at least 2-3 times a week. I haven't got pregnant, not that I'm trying to get pregnant anytime soon, however I do want children

Am I infertile? My boyfriend and I have used only the withdrawal method while making love for over two years now and we do it at least 2-3 times a week. I haven't got pregnant, not that I'm trying to get pregnant anytime soon, however I do want children

The: The withdraw method is not a very reliable form of contraception. It is reasonable to be suspicious that there may be an issue given the duration and frequency of intercourse. I don't think that it would be appropriate to give you a firm diagnosis of infertilty however. Probably the best approach is to consider your current age, the number of children you want, and make informed decisions about how to move forward. If you are 23 then not worrying about this for 4-5 years is ok. If you really don't want children now then get on a more reliable form of contraception. If you are 32 and want 4 children then waiting 4- 5 years is probably not a good idea. Hope this helps! ...Read more

I have pelvic pain, infertility for about a year and a half, amenorrhea x 3 months. 24yrs old, and 2 children already...Please help?  

I have pelvic pain, infertility for about a year and a half, amenorrhea x 3 months. 24yrs old, and 2 children already...Please help?  

A lot going on: There isn't "one" condition that explains all this at the same time, but pelvic pain + new infertility in a 24 y.o. endometriosis would be a big consideration. You'd need a thorough exam and interview with a doctor who is expert in this area to say for sure. 3 months without periods isn't to worry about, although it isn't normal. That question could be addressed with a visit too. Good wishes. ...Read more

I am 22.i had vericocle grade 1.now it's grade 2 and growing. I am worried about infertility. Can I save my sperm in banks for Plan B for children?

If you want...: But it's probably not necessary. Even a grade 2-3 varicocele probably doesn't reduce your sperm count any more than sitting in a hot bathtub. I don't think you would need to go through the expense of storing your sperm in a sperm bank. I would discuss your concerns with your doctor/urologist. ...Read more

Is it possible to have a tubal ligation or an oophorectomy without having children?

Is it possible to have a tubal ligation or an oophorectomy without having children?

Yes.: A tubal ligation, having your "tubes tied, " is a permanent method of birth control. It is possible to have the procedure done without having children, as long as you do not desire future children. An oophorectomy, having your ovaries removed, is also possible without having children. However, ovaries are not typically removed unless there is some disease process affecting them. ...Read more

Ok im 32 and would like a reversal on my tubal ligation I have 3 children is it safe and what is the vitro?

Safe is relative: Bilateral micro tubal anastomoses is as safe as any other major surgery in competent hands. The success rate may be as high as 50 to 70%. In vitro fertilization rates are usually slightly lower. Pregnancy attempts are each month after surgery but only at the time of the procedure with in vitro fertilization. ...Read more

Hormonal fluctuation: Can throw off your schedule, and that can be related to stress or infection, or thyroid dysfunction. Some women your age will start to see some irregularity as menopause approaches. It is unlikely that you are pregnant after your tubal, but it does happen, and a test would reassure you about that. Give it a few months and then discuss with your doctor if still a problem. ...Read more

Surrogacy: Its where you find someone that will carry a baby for you. Your hubby's sperm is added to eggs harvested from you and they use IVF to plant the result in a surrogate. This is quite expensive and not covered by insurance, but it is a way for you to have a kid. Otherwise you are done. ...Read more
