Hi Everyone!

Im wanting to get some advice regarding fertility. My boyfriend and I have stopped using any protection for the last year with the idea of 'what happens, happens' however nothing has happening and im aware of the fertility issues amongst PCD, can anyone advise steps they took for fertility treatments?

My doctor also advised that i shouldnt be trying to get pregnant without a plan in place by the hospital and that with my lungs it may not even be a possibility that my body is strong enough to carry a baby, has anyone else had similar?

Hi,

Fertility problems may or may not be related to your PCD. It is always best to find a fertility clinic with doctors that recognize the aspects of PCD and how they manifest related to male/female fertility issues.

I would also seek a second opinion regarding the one your doctor gave you about how "with your lungs it may not even be a possibility that your body is strong enough to carry a baby", or at least insist on a detailed explanation on why he/she thinks that to be the case.

Coming from someone with PCD that went down the IVF route my advice would be to talk with a PCD specialist about the risk involving carrying out a pregnancy and secondly, find a good fertility clinic with doctors that already had experience helping someone with PCD conceive, or are at least are familiar with the condition.

Good luck and don't give up.
