    I Thought I Was Infertile

    When I was a teenager I was told I had severe PCOS and that I would not be able to have a child. When I was in my early 20s this diagnosis was confirmed again by another doctor. I was again told I had severe PCOS and that pregnancy would be a virtual impossibility. I accepted...

    My boyfriend changes his mind every other day about if he wants me to have it or not. At first he got so mad at me for even considering not having it. But now that I'm starting to have pregnancy symptoms it's getting harder and harder for me to think about aborting our baby. My...

    I just found out I am pregnant yesterday.

    I don't know what to do. It was a drunken irresponsible night with a guy I met 3 weeks ago. To give you a little bit of his background, he is 27 years old. He didn't graduate high school, he already has a 5 year old daughter. He is currently waiting a couple of a days to move...

    Not Because I'm Pregnant.

    Which I guess sounds weird? It's simply something I felt I should think about before having sex. I could get pregnant no matter the contraceptives we use unless we don't have sex at all (not an option to me). I think it's something important to consider before being pregnant or...
