do any of y'all women have a problem being judged at the GYNO about being to young to try to get pregnant ?

my GYN is great , but everytime i mention anything about pregnancy she says i'm too young & need to get on birth control . 

i am 24 , 25 in march . i know i'm young , but we are finacially able and stable to have a child .

i respect her personal beliefs but it's not about her , she's not the patient .

should i get a new GYNO ? i just want someone to work with me so i can do all the right things so i can conceive .

If you are straight and honest with her, and tell her it is your choice, and she still says the same. Then yes, you should find a new doc. :)

She's going to be difficult to deal with if she's that outspoken about how she thinks you should be living. I'd get a new gyno, one that will help you and respect your wishes instead of judging.

I'd get a new gyno, you're 24 not 14 and you have a right to make your own decisions.....it's not her place to offer advice like that.

Yup, new doctor. One who you are in agreement with concerning your choices and your health.

I had a nurse That judged me. I was 15 when I got pregnant.
I Didn't look my age, she thought I was older; then when she read my paper work she looked at me and rolled her eyes. She was always rude after that.
