Hi my name is Mimi and I am 32 years old. Currently, I am trying to conceive my first child and it has a been a struggle, also kind of stressful. I was pregnant when I was 16 years old and terminated the pregnancy.
In 2008, I underwent a series of fertility test: pelvic examination, blood test, and hysterosalpingogram (HSG). All of my test came back great. I wanted to take these exams because I knew in the near future I would want to have children.
I have only been trying to conceive for about 4 months. I realize this is just a short amount of time, but I don't see why it is taking so long. I am still young and healthy and I exercise at least once a week. I have also been documenting my cycles and having sex before and after my exact ovulation date.
I tend to be a little intense and anxious, and I think this could be the reason I have not conceived. In Oct 2012, I started bleeding heavier during my period and bleeding in between periods. I went to the doctor and again was told I am physically healthy.
But why the sudden change? And why haven't I gotten pregnant in the past (after my first doctor visit in 2008) and in the present if I am healthy?
I'm so afraid this is not going to happen for me. I am worried and often I feel sad. I've been so stressed out that I experience tension headaches and that's not normal for me. I also feel some pelvic pain when I am stressed but yet again, my pelvic examinations are normal. What's the reason for this?
