Fertile or infertile?
Hi Doc!
I am very worried about my chances of having a baby. Between 2002 & 2004 my boyfriend and I were not using any protection, but I could never conceive. I have always thought I was the one with a problem because he already has a child. I am now engaged to someone else, and we are trying to have a baby. I have not been on my periods for the past two months. I took a HPT and it was positive. I have morning sickness for about 2 weeks and now I am fine. I dont have any signs of being preggy anymore and my stomach/body is still very much the same.

I have not taken a blood test yet, as I am afraid it will be negative. If I am not preggy then why have I missed my periods for 2 whole months? My mother is a nurse, and when my older sister fell pregnant. she could see it at an early stage. When my cousin fell pregnant, she could tell by just talking to her on thye phone, saying she could hear by her heavy breathing. I visit her every weekend and speak to her on the phone everyday, but she says nothing!!

What is your advice? I am slowly but surely getting depressed because this all I think about.
Please help

Dear Bee

Home pregnancy tests are fairly accurate when they are positive and I would therefore suggest you visit you gynaecologist for an ultra sound scan as soon as possible.
