Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

how do i get pregnant with no periods ever?

5 answers
My husband and i have been together for 5 years now. We have been trying to get pregnant for 4 years. We are ready to settle down and have a family. BUT i dont get a period unless i take birth control. i dont want to take birth control, makes me feel sick. We just want to get pregnant, and we have tried everything with out trying to spend every single penny we make. We dont know what to do and we are looking for some advice? We are looking at filling out adoption papers next year. BUT we REALLY want to have our own children. And i am starting to become frustrated and sad and very emotional with the whole thing...please some one give some advice to see what we can do :)

Have you talked to your doctor about this?  There are several reasons why you may not be getting a period - some serious athletes don't get them when they're in training, and if you're seriously malnourished you won't get one either, but I doubt either of those apply to you.  (Well, the first might as a general rule - but if you were in training, you also wouldn't be trying to get pregnant!) Bottom line: talk to your doctor.  If you're not getting a period, and you're otherwise healthy, then that's something you need to discuss with him or her before you get pregnant, because there might be something else going on down there.  After giving you a look, he or she may want to refer you to a fertility specialist.  THIS IS NOT A BIG DEAL.  Lots of people go, and the first thing they'll do is check you and your husband out, to figure out what your options are.  This is usually covered by most insurances, so don't worry about breaking the bank just yet. Good luck.
I agree with azriona. This happened to me, and I did eventually have a child, but needed fertility drugs. See a doctor and get some advice. 
do our answers have to be approved first? I just posted a reply, and its nowhere to be found. =(
Guess not. What I said WAS.. I rarely have periods, & still managed to get pregnant twice in six months.. (one miscarriage, one healthy baby boy) So needless to say, no periods do not necessarily equal no baby. Keep trying.. it will happen. Our son is living proof.
Hi! I haven't had my period now in 3 years. I went off of birth control and never got my period again. Since then, I have had a baby girl (got pregnant about 6 months after I didn't have a period) and just recently another pregnancy which ended in a miscarriage at 10 weeks. So, it is totally possible to get pregnant without a period. It's just more confusing because you don't know when you actually get pregnant. I can't tell when I ovulate and I don't get pms. My doctor has done numerous tests and I'm completely normal. Keep trying!
