  • Talk to a doctor. Rule our medical issues that might prevent you from having a baby. Messed up periods can be remedied with medication. You can take fertility meds. Your husband's sperm count can be checked. You can get an ultrasound to check for cysts on your ovaries or other internal issues. In all actuality though, 7 months may seem like a long time but they usually don't recommend you going the medical route until over a year of not being able to conceive.

  • I'm Sorry are you 17 years old? Or did I miss read that?
    Any Fertility Doctor is going to have a hard time treating you at 17?

    If you are not 17 I appoligize.

  • Oh honey you have so much live to live.  If you are having an annual I would speak to your OB/GYN but you are way to young.  Go to college, see the world.  I have a son that is 19 and one that is 16, I had my first baby at 22. 

    And, at 22 I had a good job, I was married and owned my own home.  Even now looking back I should have waited. 

    Good luck. Talk to your parents.  Sorry I don't mean to sound harsh but you are so young.

  • It's only been 7 months. I tried for almost 15 years. Give it some time. And have fun trying!

  • I would wait, this could be your body's way of telling you you're not ready yet. It will happen when it's supposed to. If after a few years it doesn't happen then I would be more concerned. your Dr will do bloodwork tests. I had PCOS and my problem was as easy as a $10 prescription a month. Just wait honey, it will happen.
