Anyone with health issue, diseases, disorders TTC

Postby mommyto(may)be » Fri Sep 14, 2012 12:55 am

I have recently been finding forums to find other TTC for support and to offer support. I currently have a genetic disorder called Ehlers Danlos, haven't heard it? Its ok so many doctors haven't either. This disorder is a connective tissue disorder where tendons, ligaments, and other things tear due to lack of collagen. I am 26 and have a hip that needs to be replaced but am holding off hopefully another 10 years or so and a shoulder that is completely shot. I have had 3 hip operations, 6 right shoulder surgeries (waiting to hopefully get pregnant and deliver) before number 7 which is a major operation and one left shoulder surgery which needs to be redone but pain is manageable for now. I also am in need of jaw surgery for TMJ. My doctors have expressed to me for the past few years now is my time to try to have kids because as I get older my body may not handle pregnancies. I was just wondering if anyone else has any health issues that are affecting their ability to conceive (ED has a high infertility rate) or rushed due to these concerns? Thanks for input

I have endometriosis which has affected my fertility. I also have multiple sclerosis. It doesn't affect my fertility per se but my treatments are on hold due to ttc. It's definitely part of the big picture for me,
