    Hi there, I actually don't know why I haven't thought to do this before! Just saying hi I guess

    I'm just 30, so I'm suppose thinking about the impending likely problems related to fertility in a real way for the first time.

    I was diagnosed at 10 from being specially little, and had growth hormone for four years as well as braces for a small mouth and oestrogen to begin my periods/development. In adolesence/now adulthood I'm on hormone replacement therapy as well as thyroxine for an underactive thyroid which is fully under control.

    I'm in Manchester, Northwest UK so have been incredibly fortunate in terms of the NHS and my care in general. Travelling to the International TS Conference in Chicago in 2000 really hit home how lucky we are not to rely on health insurance etc.

    Anyway back to fertility... I have to say I was encouraged, as 6 months into my first serious relationship I went to my doctor to talk about contraception.. taking it alongside/instead of HRT, and whether I actually needed it as my impression has always been that pregnancy is just flat impossible. Being mosaic, though, she assured me not, "never say never" and agreed that I was better to be safe and go on the pill.

    I'm a few years away from my partner and I actually contemplating trying, but it gave a glimmer of hope.

    Thanks for listening, Emma x
