I am really knew to this site, I joined basically so I could get some thoughts on my issue from others / see if anyone else was in the same boat.
Warning: this is a bit of an essay!
I'm 22 and found out last year that I suffer from Pcos, endo and Adynomyosis. Apparently this is quite a rare combination and extremely rare to suffer from Adynomyosis at my age ( basically I have the uterus of a 50 yr old!)
When I was diagnosed, my gyno suggested ttc ASAP as my window for unassisted pregnancy was approx 2 yrs. Apparently after this stage (when I'm around 25) the chances of me needing ivf increase quite dramatically and have been told that I will eventually need a hysterectomy around the age of 30.
I have been with my bf for what will be 5 years in December and at the end of last year we bought our first home.
He has never been too keen on kids and has always said they were a 'waste of money' and that if he were to have a baby it would be many, many years away.
When I told him my issues I gave him some time to let it sink in then told him I wanted a baby with or without him and needed to know if he was willing to work with the time frame I was given.
He said he was and didn't really want to talk about it again until it was more of a pressing issue.
So that was last year and this year I have been dropping comments here and there about when we were going to start ttc.
He made it clear he wanted no pregnancy talk until next year.
I am currently on depo and and keen to get off to give my body a chance to get back in the swing of things as I've not had a natural cycle in approx 7 years.
He would freak at the idea of me going off it but I do desperately want to fall pregnant this year.
I have explained to him thy you're almost pregnant for a whole year and if I were to go off my depo it would still be months until i was due for another one and actually fell pregnant, meaning there would be no baby until next year.
I'm just worried if I go by his timeframe that the longer I wait the higher my chance of not falling pregnant are.
I understand it's a lot of pressure for him at 24, but like I said.. We have been together for almost 5 years, both have good cars, good jobs and a house.
He says he wants to travel but when I suggested it he wasn't interested.
I'm so scared he will never be ready to start trying.
Can anyone give me some advice please?
