I am 22 and keen to start my family but I'm struggling to conceive
My husband and I are keen to start a family as soon as possible as there is a strong history of gynaecological cancer in the family and my mother died of uterine cancer at the age of 42.

I am struggling to conceive, however. Could my (past) weight have anything to do with this? I am 1.68m tall and now weigh 52kg. There was a time in the past, however, when I weighed a lot less. I have a normal 4-day flow.

You may be a little underweight. The best thing would be to check if you are ovulating.

Best wishes
