What If I Cant Have Kids?

I'm almost 17, I'm not thinking about having children anytime very soon, but I am kind of worried over the fact that I may not even be able to have kids. I've been with my boyfriend for almost a year, we have plans to get married when I am 18 or 19 years old, and then hopefully have kids within the following 2 or 3 years. He really want kids someday, and we're both really excited over the idea of starting a family together, but I'm worried about disappointing him if I'm not able to get pregnant. I have polycistic ovarian syndrome, and I know that can effect my fertility. I'm taking a medication called Metformin, and also an oral contraceptive called reclipsen. I really feel like I need advice from an older woman, who may have been in a similar situation, and I'd like to begin taking some steps towards seeing the doctor and finding out what my chances over being able to conceive are, and how I could maybe increase these chances.

Hi, omgaiden. I'm Kat from Australia. I always thought that I would be a mum (mom) one day. Now I'm 44, married for 10 years without kids. I went through 6 IVF treatments and 2 miscarriages. They couldn't find anything wrong with us. <br />

I heard many stories about girls who had been told that they couldn't conceive naturally or even be a mother, but later many of them became mothers. You'll never know what your life will bring to you.<br />

What I want to say is... it's better to be happy than being worried about your future. I'm happy what I have now even though I still feel sad about not having any kids. I really hope your dream will come true one day.
