can i stI'll become fertile even though I don't have a period ?

i'm 17 years old and I have a very bad menstrual cycle . I've tried birth ccontrol to regulate my periods that worked for a while until I started bleeding really heavy and cramping was so bad I'd cry and sleep all day . my doctor had thought I had a miscarriage because of all my symptoms but there was no way because when I had sexual intercourse he never ejaculated . anyways , everyone keeps telling me that I will most likely not have kids and that really scares me . I know I'm only 17 but this really worries me . btw I won't be trying for one anytime soon .

Hi there

I really hope you are okay and I am sorry that you are going through such a difficult time.

If you are anxious about your fertility, I would suggest going down to your nearest Brook / young persons sexual health clinic. The people who work at these clinics will be able to give you the support you need, so talk them through your symptoms and they will help you figure out what to do next.

You can find your nearest specialist young persons clinic online here, just tick the box that says "contraceptive clinics that are only for young people":

I hope this helps and do get in contact again if you are still worried.

Best wishes
