have metrorrhagia (irregular menstrual) and I am 23 years old, I've had my period like this since I was 12 years old, the only thing that would put it normal was birth control pills and I was on them for years and I would stop then I would get back on them, but I stopped taking them 2 years ago because I am trying to concieve but nothing is happening , me and my partner always have unprotected sex and I never get pregnant , i would love to know why. I've had a biopsy done, a pelvic ultrasound and everything is fine, I had blood work done but everything is fine I don't understand what's going on with me. I know that my period has to do a lot with it because it lasts for almost a month then it goes away for a couple days and it comes back quick . But I'm just so confused I don't know what else to do . I don't know if I ovulate either since it feels like I always have my period :/

Hello and thank you for choosing EmpowHer,
Keep in mind that it takes 2 to make a baby. Since your reproductive system is healthy, it's time for your husband to make sure his is also healthy.
There is male infertility as well as female infertility. Here is an article by EmpowHer about the male infertility.

It will shed some light on the matter. Let us know if you have any more questions.
