Hello everyone. My name is Jessica, and I'm a newbie to this message board. I am 21 years old and happily married to my wonderful husband Steve. We have been married for 5 years in April. I'm posting here today because I'm seeking advice on infertility. I suppose I should tell a little about my situation. Well, my husband and I have been BD'ing for 5, almost 6 years now with no protection or birth control. We haven't been actively ttc, but we do have a pretty regular sex life. I am starting to worry that we may have some serious fertility issues. I haven't been to see a doctor yet. I actually have no health insurance, and haven't been to an OB/GYN in over 6 years. The last time I saw a doctor was when I came off of the Depo shot, which I took for nearly two years from the time I was 14 years old. I am really kind of afraid of what they might tell me. Well recently I've begun to really worry about what is going on with me. My family and friends have all told me to, "Wait for my time". However, I'm concerned that by waiting I may be losing precious opportunity if something is seriously wrong and I'm letting it go untreated. My worry has turned into complete and utter fear and tension now, so I've begun researching infertility and looking for any advice I can get on message boards. I've heard that online communities can be very informative and supportive, so that's why I'm here. I'm hoping to meet someone here that can push me in the right direction. I know that obviously I need to save some money and buy health coverage, (without it I'm pretty much stuck without many options), but in the meantime I'm just searching for advice, support, and success stories to inspire me not to give up hope. If anyone out there has any advice or information that might be beneficial, please let me know. All of you ladies are in my thoughts and prayers. I'm so happy that there are places like this available to women struggling to conceive. God Bless You All, and good luck as we each pursue our dreams for a miracle.

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
