Dear Dr. Expert,
I am 32 yrs. old, I have irregular periods, approx 3 months, this was before I became sexually active at 17. Since then I had been on different forms of contraception, so periods were normal (when on the pill) and then absent (when on Depo-Provera). I became pregnant at 25 with my, now, husband and terminated the pregnancy at 8 wks. After that, I started on Depo-Provera and had a total of 4 doses, the last being in Nov. ’94. I did not get a regular period until 2 yrs after that last dose. I got pregnant again in July ’98, but miscarried shortly afterwards. In March ’99, I had an ectopic pregnancy. Today is Jan 6, 2001, my last period was Nov. 27, 2000 and I want to start a family. My current ob-gyn wants to start a fertility work-up on me and perhaps start using clomid. My instincts tell me not to use modern medicine and to rely on the Lord to bless us with a gift from above. I have altered nature in my young past and would like to depend on nature now. Please advise if you can, any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
