I have just joined this forum so am very new to all of this. I don't really have anyone to talk to for advice so thought it may be best to start here.
I am 29 years old and have been TTC for about 7 months now. My story gets tricky because i have a history of problems and just panicking at this stage.
So it all starts like this, in my early/late teens a gentleman passed on Chlamydia to me which was not noticed for approx 2-3 years. During the time I found out, I was in a long term relationship with someone and we got it all fixed up. I wasn't on the pill and I wasn't TTC but I wasn't getting pregnant either so we continued to not use protection as I just thought "oh well I cant get pregnant anyway ill be fine". (stupid thinking on a 17 year old). Anyway the inevitable happened and after 2 years of no protection, I fell pregnant at 19. My partner was not going to allow me to keep it (his family was religious & didn't even know about me) so i was taken to the doctor and booked in for the "procedure". Since my early 20's I have been on the pill and am ready to have children with the love of my life. We have been TTC for the last 7 months and it got me to thinking about all my previous problems and the fact that even when I was 17 years old, it did take 2 years for anything to happen. Now I am 29 bordering 30 and still suffering problems and all my friends seem to be getting it done in the first try. Please don't judge me I was just a stupid teenager at the time but has anyone had any experience with TTC & Chlamydia. Did it cause infertility problems for you? I also have not yet been to the doctor as I know you have to wait 12 months before you can talk to them.
Any help anyone or advice anyone can offer would be much appreciated
