Just to reassure you, the prober they use for internal scans just sits at the entrance to your vag. "he does not go all the way in" said by my consultant to me as I looked at the enormous length.

DD 16 had an external ultrasound last year which was indicative of PCOS, and which together with the fact of infrequent periods and blood tests suggest her fertility is very low.
She'd need an internal scan for more details, but neither she nor the doctor think that's a good idea for a 16 year old virgin (she's had so few periods she hasn't even used a tampon yet!)
Our doctor has been excellent, very matter of fact, and has said that she can have children, it'll just take her longer to conceive. DD has been reassured by the doctor.
But I'm gutted. I don't want DD to know how gutted I am, but I had problems having my two and I know what it's like seeing the months and the years slip past. I wanted a better life for my wonderful, darling DD.

I'm just hoping that medical science - which has moved pretty fast re infertility in my lifetime - will come up with a solution in the next decade.

I hope everything goes well for you and your DD crkm.

Awww. Poor thing. At least you've found out now rather than 2,5,10 years down the line.
Very best wishes.

DD 19 been referred to gynaecologist re abnormal hormone levels. she was told that this will affect her fertility. as a parent you pray your teenage daughter does not get pregnant - and now my greatest desire is that my dd will be a mum!! took her to the doctor a few years ago because i was sure things were not as they should - ie she has not ever needed deoderant and had very irregular periods. dr said there was nothing to worry about yet. now she faces invassive tests. she cuddled up to me on the sofa ( a rareity as we are usually at each others throats!) and told me her biggest fear was not being able to have children!! am heartbroken!
