I had my son who is now 11 when I was 18. After his birth my periods have been worse. Heavier bleeding, severe cramps/pressure. I can't even stand on my feet that first day. For the past several years I have migraines before my period starts, which means my hormones are increasing or dropping.I was on the pill (several tried) which didn't help the periods, then I went on Depo for about a year. I havn't been on anything since then and that was about 2002. Still no baby and my periods are madening! In 2006 my husband was tested, no problems seen there. So that leaves me. We saw my OBGYN after my husbands tests but he wanted to wait awhile longer. Still no baby. My periods are regular, like clock work. So he thought it might still happen. We are to the point of giving up. I will be 30 and my husband 38 in January and my son 12 in March. There would be such an age spand between kids and I think maybe its just not meant to be. But I am curious why I can't get pregnant. I did have an uncle that couldn't have children, he is in heaven now, but could it be a genetic thing even though I have a child? Could it be related to my Fibromyalgia or my possible Irritatable Bowel disease? I am not sure if I should push the issue now that I am thinking of not getting pregnant. But I also don't want a suprise baby when I am older. Should I push to have tests ran? It is time for me to see my OBGYN. My heart goes out to those that have struggled. I am so sorry. I know it bothers my husband not having his "own", but he doesn't talk about it. Thank you!
