Tazat, you have plenty of time to have a baby! Having a child is the biggest responsibility you'll ever have so think carefully about having one at such a young age. It will change your life forever!

Once you begin to try for a baby, use the time guide I listed above.

Take care!

Hi Tazat

Thank you for your question! I assume you mean "infertile" by saying barren? That's not really a word we use anymore as it used to be a reflection of a woman's value in life, rather than a medical condition both men and women live with!

In general and in cases of women with good health and reasonably regular cycles:

If a woman over 35 has been trying for a baby for more than 6 months and is unsuccessful, she needs to see a specialist about possible infertility.

If the woman it under 35, she should try for a baby for a year, before infertility is investigated.

And bear in mind that infertility in men is equally an issue when it comes to getting pregnant. A woman's partner should also be seen.

Tazat, how old are you? How long have you been trying to conceive?
