    Hi. Im 21 and have just recently found out that I have Chlamydia and am obviously deeply upset by the news. I made one mistake 8 months ago and haven't had sex since. I'm now petrified that I could have problems with my fertility. Is 8 months long enough to have had Chlamydia for it to develop to PID and effect my fertility?? Would love a reply soon as I'm very stressed and worried.

    its not that long but everyone is different. if you go to your doctor they'll be able to tell you whether you have it or not - the infection itself is fairly easily curable but if you leave it - thats when the problems start. i've had it before and had it for a while and it hasnt caused any long term problems.

    I was diagnosed with bv over a year ago and given a course of antibiotics. The bv has since returned and I have had another course of antibiotics however I still feel as if I have it. Why does it keep coming back? Also me and my boyfriend have been trying for a baby for about 4 months now and no luck. Is the bv affecting my fertility? Do you think either of us have a fertility problem?? Would anyone suggest us getting fertility tests?

    Don't worry you are still growing there is still time for it to mature. My advice would be if it is still like that when you are 18 then go and get it checked out. Yellowy colour isn't often a big worry but red or brown can be so if it is that colour then you should get checked.

    I was diagnosed with endometriosis in 2008 and also have the same bowel problems mine is due to my bowel and womb fusing to my abdomin from the endometriosis they are linked, and yes you will have this for life. Do you know how badly endometriosis affects fertility i am very worried about whether i will be able to have children but as i am not planning to have any just yet have been offered no tests to check my fertilty. Thank you

    Ashley i dont know how to answer you personally!! I am undergoing fertility tests at the moment all I know about endo and fertility is what i have researched on the internet so am not much help on that score. Personal experience says that my endo may be the cause of my infertility I have a problem wit ovulation and i have leisons in uterus which may need further tests as they only just found them if you plan on having children i think it is a good idea to get tests if you need them !!As far as i know endo is a cause of infertility

    Hi, I am 17 & I had been on two different pills (one at a time) over the past 2 years. At the beginning of this year I came off the Cerazette pill. For at least the last 3 months I have not had a period. Although there is no chance of me being pregnant, I have done two pregnancy tests which both came back negative; I just wondered what it could be that has stopped my periods, whether the pill has affected them or if it could cause problems with fertility later on at all?

    I think I have a prolapse but it is really small compared to the one in the picture, I feel really embarrassed to go to the doctors & I read somewhere that it is best to have kids first before getting it repaired and is can cause problems with fertility or something. I am 20 and havnt had a child yet but dont want to live with a prolapse for years. Is this just a myth or will getting it fixed harm my chances of children in the future?

    I just found out today that I have a retroverted uterus through an internal ultrasound. I've had this procedure done 2 and a half years ago. Why did it not get picked up back then? Also I suffer from pcos and have been told that I have fertility problems, does the problem with my uterus make this worse? I'd love to have children and to be able to conceive naturally but it sounds like it won't be possible. Any advice would be much appreciated.

    As a teenager I was diagnosed with an eating disorder and my periods stopped for around three years. They only restarted when I began to take the pill, and would become very light and irregular when I stopped taking it. Around a year ago I again took a break from the pill and although my BMI is around 19, I haven't had a period for months and know I'm not pregnant. Is this to do with my weight or a sign that I may have more serious fertility problems (including in the future)?

    In most people varicocele causes no problems. Christopher's urologist was a bit zealous, it often has no impact on fertility and studies have shown conflicting things as to whether or not fixing the varicocele improves fertility (and that is only in men who actually have fertility problems!) It certainly isn't responsible for 80% of male infertility. That said, if it is severe it can cause problems and should be treated. Go see your doctor and they will be able to help you decide if this needs to be treated or if it can safely be ignored.

    My boyfriend has something that feels like worms in his left testicle. Recently this became swollen and he was given antibiotics to reduce the swelling which worked. Having looked online we read that he may have problems with fertility. Is this true an how would we go about getting a fertility test if its needed

    Hi Katie, I was diagonised with PCOS when I was 13 ever since then the PCOS has been an issue for me especially now that I am 34. I did have surgery to have a fibroid removed as this was causing my peroids to become very, very heavy indeed since the removal of the fibroid in 2002 my peroids are lighter but still a little painful to say the least as for the PCOS I still have it. I had the same issues such as have excessive facial and bodily hair, unexplained weight gain, mood swings, problems with problems I am hoping fingers crossed that in the next 1 to 2 years to fall pregnant (hopefully) If you are really concerned about fertility and becoming pregnant seek medical advice so that your GP can do the paperwork and get some tests arranged for you so that you know where you stand in relation to fertility and what your chances are..

    I've heard on the show that the cyst also decrease fertility. Is the fertility worse to the same extent whether one is diagnosed and treated and when she's not?

    Please tell your mom, sounds like pcos like I have and or cushings disease. Dont wait endocrine problems are not something to wait til they become severe. The longer u wait the more damage its doing to ur reproductive system. Could cause a strain of fertility problems in the future!

    dont worry time is important if the time is arrived all should be allright. no it is no fertility problem it just vitamin deficiency in your partner body so dont worry ask him to take supplement or vitamin e for make sperm quality.

    I've been with my boyfriend for over four years and have recently found out that we had chlamydia, which has now been treated. There is no way that either of us would cheat so our main worry is our fertility. I had never shown any symtoms of having it until i was bleeding inbetween periods. We are both very concerned about our risk of being infertile. What are the chances that is has affected my fertility. Thanks

    Hi, i can totally relate to what you're saying. I have had the same problems since my early twenties & am now 41. I don't have children as i suffer from fertility problems & have been diagnosed with polycystic ovaries although i don't have any of the usual symptoms. I would dearly love someone to be able to tell why i have this dryness, it has made me really depressed over the years & i don't feel normal. I had a period of 2 years when things seemed to be working normally, this was after having ivf treatment &massive doses of hormones although no doctor will admit this helped.

    You could have a condition called Acanthosis nigricans. Basically it's darkened skin in the groin, armpits and around the neck. Are you having problems with your period? Are you having problems with your weight? You might have PCOS (poly cystic ovarian syndrome). It's basically a problem with your hormones that can result in darkening of the skin, lack of regular periods, problems with cysts on your ovaries, and fertility issues. There is no real cure, but there are some things that help. Alot of women have the same problem, including me. Go talk to your doctor and he can run a hormone panel to check.

    The comment about fertility is maybe a bit alarmist. Varicoceles are very common and in most cases don't affect fertility. I've got one on my left and it hasn't stopped me becoming a father;) They're mainly just an annoyance as they flare up occasionally and get a bit uncomfortable. And probably worry lots of blokes about lumps on their testicles. If it feels like a bag of worms, it's probably just a varicocele, but get it checked anyway.

    Hey guys... Mainly girls (no offense) I got diagnosed with what docs thought was ibs after years of constipation. It was only recently that due to having fertility treatment, my fertility consultant did a diagnostic laporoscopy, to check my tubes etc... Turns out i had endometriosis. And the endo had grown around my bowel causing constipation... Who'd have thought it! Endo pains can be very similar to ibs pains/ constipation pains. I too never felt the urge to go, until maybe 10-15 days after the previous bowel movement, i too also look pregnant, but due to us going through fertility treatment, kinda rips me in two when i get asked " how far along are you" Might be worth gettin checked for those of you who are still menstrual (spelling)

    i have been with my partner for 3 years. we were both a bit promiscuous before we got together, and having just been tested have found out we both have chlamydia. this means i have had it for at least 3 years and im worried about my future fertility. the nurse told me to stop worrying as the statistics arent very well researched but i would like to know if there is anything i can do to boost my fertility now (i eat healthily and exercise regularly) or any tests that can be done so i know for certain. i would really like a family one day and would like to put my mind at ease. thankyou

    I'm asking this question on behalf of my partner, we've been together for a little over 4 years now and we've been trying to conceive for about 2 & a half years I'd say, but it has never happened. He has a cyst on his testicles & I'm thinking could that be the cause of why I'm not getting pregnant? Do cysts cause probelems with sperm/fertility? We've really been doing everything by the book, really changed our lifestyles, I've even quit smoking after 7 years!!! Literally at my wits end now :( just want a family!!! PLEASE HELP!!! P.S I'm going to see my GP tonight about fertility testing for us both. Thanks for your time :)

    Trauma can cause lower Testosterone levels- and this could effect fertility. Your man will need some further tests to establish serum levels of Testosterone, Prolactin and FSH, at least, to see what gives on this.

    i just want to say that i have had problems with periods, heavy bleeding, bleeding inbetween periods, back pain, thigh pain, bowels symptoms during periods and painful sex. these problems went on for roughly 8 years and i went to my gp persistantly! i recently found a gp who finally sent me to the hospital who sent me straight for a laparoscopy. they found extensive and widespread endometriosis, i am yet to be told the implications of this or whether my fertility is likely to be effected! i am 23 years old. please guys, persist with going to your gp if you have problems like these. i was told so many times 'all women have period pains, its a fact of life'. thats not true. good luck guys x

    Hi I have PCOS. I was diagnosed 5 years ago. I am slim and very active too. I followed a GI diet that did help some what. I went through fertility treatment, clomid, overian drilling and then IUI. We conceived on our first attempt of IUI and we now have a beutiful daugher of 3 years. You need to seek advice from your GP and be referred to your hospial for fertility treatment. My advice is to never give up because women with PCOS do have babies! Good luck

    Hiya, I'm 30 and have just been diagnosed with PCOS. I tried for a couple of years to conceive and after 6 months of clomid I became pregnant. Your Dr will tell you about how loosing weight will help with your fertility as it will help regulate all the important hormnoes and this will defo help but you can also be referred to fertility specialist if you have not conceived within 12 months of trying. But I would without a doubt get yourself in good health by having a good diet, regular exercise and cutting down/stopping drinking and smoking. Stay positive and try not to worry (easier said than done I know!).

    go to your doctor. please. you're in the really early stages of it and you still have a good chance of recovering with no ill effects. yes it makes you feel better in the short term but the longer you do it the bigger the problems - i've been doing this since i was thirteen. im now twenty seven. my heart is messed up, my teeth have cost thousands and are still crumbling, my gag reflex is so ruined i end up being sick when i brush my teeth, i tore my oesophagus, my salivary glands dont know whats going on and randomly swell up for no good reason, im pretty much guaranteed to have fertility problems, i have a totally messed up stomach, my hair falls out. its no way to live. please please please seek help for this.
