Question: I cant seem to fall pregnant


 lil one - Sun Jul 22, 2007 9:24 pm

Hi there, i am a 19 year old female, I was on the jab for roughly 2 years, i went off it over a year ago but am still having problems getting pregnant. Also my period is irregular and roughly 2 weeks apart and are very light (more like spotting).

I had a std cheek 2 months ago and all come back clear, my partner was also tested and he was all ok as well.

I have had clamidia twice but not for very long periods of time.

Do i need to wait longer for the effects of the jab to were off or is there possibly something wrong?

User avatar I'm sorry but I am not familiar with the "jab." I assume it is hormonal birth control of some type. Typically a fertile, sexually active woman in your age range would expect to be pregnant within about a year of actively trying but it could certainly take a little longer without raising red flags. If you were on hormonal contraceptives, that can delay fertility a bit. At any rate I would expect you to become pregnant fairly soon. If not, you may wish to visit your gynecologist for evaluation. Good luck.
