Why can't I have kids too?

I didnt have a childhood because I had to raise my siblings and cousins. So as I grew older I thought I'd be a great mom with all my experience. Then my periods stopped when I was 15. I got married and i had been trying to get pregnant for 2 years now and i cant. It's so frustrating that I cant.

I was in a committed relationship for 8 years, and we never even had a pregnancy scare. I thought my junk was broken. Come to find out, it was him. 4 months of unprotected with my husband, and we were pregnant. There could be a multitude of different things happening. I'd suggest seeing a specialist or for him to. My husband and I talked about adoption and fostering before we decided to get married because I really thought I couldn't conceive.

We were trying for 5 years. Decided to see a fertility specialist and now we have our almost 3 month old son. Best decision we've ever made!

I have PCOS and hypothyroidism. I managed to get into a fertility clinic and started getting some information. HOWEVER, it was incredibly helpful once I did my own research too. Adjusting diet, taking supplements, going to the gym, and overall taking better care of myself helped. Metformin was too hard on my system 💩, so I took inositol instead. I also had to do the highest dose letrozole, but I got there after 3 years. It’s doable. Start doing your research and make your plan now to get pregnant and strive for it every day.

I have no advice, just wanted to say. Waiting for my babies was the most painful and longest years. Nothing ever filled that ache of where my babies should be. All I can say is that maybe your journey to motherhood looks different than expected but it doesn’t mean it’s never going to reach your destination. I’d say consult fertility doctors if you aren’t already. Have as much hope as will keep you sane! Some days hope was the source of my disappointment. All I can say is try to find joy in other aspects of life right now. Learn to enjoy life even when it hurts and is hard to bear. It’s a good skill for motherhood and to pass on to your children. I hope that you are able to hear good baby news soon. ❤️

Thank you so much. I will keep this to heart. It's difficult and sadly sometimes getting my hope too high has landed me low in my depression. Best of Hope to you too❤💫baby dust for you💫

My husband and I have fertility issues so we ended up adopting and are in the process of becoming foster parents. I know it doesn't exactly answer your question, but our son has brought us a lot of joy. There are a lot of children who need loving parents so something to consider. Best of luck on your journey to parenthood!

Let me know if you have any questions about the adoption process. I am always happy to help.

Thank you so much. My husband has brought up adoption and I would love to adopt. But something inside me really want to conceive at least one child. Weve made a few calls and emails to adoption agencies to get some general information about adoption. Were still in the midst of that too.
