Unable to Have Children

I have always wanted children...maybe it's just engrained in my head that I'm not a woman if I don't...I dunno. I tried having children since I was 22...with absolutely no luck at all.

I was first diagnosed with severe depression when I was just 13. Since then, I have been on countless medications...the cause of my inability to get pregnant to begin with.

I was recently in a serious relationship...and this guy had a kid everytime he had sex...yes he was extremely fertile. Nothing...a big dud...that's me.

I was hoping to find others like me.

I had no idea that meds could do this to you! I suffer with deprssion too and I have refused to take my meds everytime they have been given to me! I am trying for a baby now, well I only started trying yesterday - but I'm due to have a psychiatric assessment at the end of the month, I'm won't be taking anything they give me now!!

i have had chronic depression since i was 14. and i also have been on everything possible for it. i am afraid we are in the same boat. i cant have kids now because of my meds. it is scary to know you can never bear a child.

My sister inlaw seem to can't have children either. I mean she has gotten pregnant but lost every one!<br />
I am so sorry to hear!
