I started birth control, Depo Prevera, at an early age. I was on and off of it for about 4 years, then I started the pill. Now, I've been off of birth control for a little over a year and have no gotten pregnant. Don't get me wrong, I'm not TR

Answers:

You are just extremely lucky I was the same way. Never a scare or a problem, then when I got married I did get pregnant and have a lovely 9 year old (at 40 no less), I would STOP freaking out as it is WAY to early for that.

Every women is different and bc can cause your cycle to take a bit to get back to normal. Some women don't ovulate every month. One thing you could do if your curious would be to by the ovulation test. They can detect the hormones to tell you if and when your fertile. Because your so young and have not been actively trying to get pregnant you won't find many docs willing to do fertility test on you. Especially if you having normal/more regular periods. Also some women are not infertile but end up having to try for years to get pregnant. The human anatomy is really a complex amazing thing. Not sure if this helped you at all or not, but good luck!

It can take 6 months at least when coming off the pill for your system to get itself back together, and then ON AVERAGE it takes 12 months to conceive, so you have a long time to wait before you can even begin to feel miffed that you've had a long wait.

It's not as easy as many people believe to get pregnant. You are only fertile for about 72 hours a month.

I think you SHOULD be able to get a papsmear before age 21 (I guess you live outside the U.S.?), HOWEVER--- a pap smear is not going to tell you if you're fertile or infertile. It will only tell if you if you have cancerous or pre-cancerous cells on your cervix.

And to be fair, if you are not trying to get pregnant, and have NEVER tried, tests for infertility are not medically indicated. But assume that money and regulations were no obstacle--- even if you were subjected to every possible test of your reproductive system and given a clean bill of health, you could still develop a problem between now and when you plan to start trying to have children.

Ask if you are covered for STI screening. Infections like chlamydia can lead to pelvic inflammatory disease, which can harm your fertility, and chlamydia is common as heck.

Don't forget, it takes two to make a baby. Your reproductive system may be perfectly fine, but it won't help if your partner has low hormones or a low sperm count. Maybe he's the one who needs to talk to a doctor.
