Hi there,

As you have been trying to conceive for a year, you should pop down to your GPs to have a chat about it. They will be able to talk to you about your cycle, ways to improve your chances of conceiving and make sure there isn’t anything that might be affecting your fertility. It is unlikely that the abnormal cells would be an issue in terms of conceiving, but again it is worth discussing this with your GP. Do try not to worry – just because you didn’t conceive in the past when taking the pill irregularly doesn’t mean you are infertile. There are lots of other factors, such as the partner you were with or the time of month you had unprotected sex, that could have impacted on your chances of conceiving. I completely understand it must be getting you down, so it might be best to go and speak to your GP sooner rather than later.

I hope this helps. Do let me know if you have any other questions.

Best wishes,
