What are my changes of getting pregnant

I am 25 years old and have had 1 abortion.  My boyfriend had a vasectomy 2 years ago and is seriously thinking of getting it reversed so him and I can have children one day.  Before I let him go through that kind of pain I wanted to make sure I am able to conceive first.  Is there any tests I can do or have done (I would rather do them myself, but if I have to go to the doctor I will) to find out if I am able to have pregnancy.

Please help!  I cannot bear the thought of him going through the surgery if I am not able to get pregnant!

Well, there are really no home tests you can do other than track your basal body temperature and or use ovulation predictor kits to determine if you are ovulating.  This will only tell you if you are producing an egg every month that can be fertilized.  If you want to truly be 'tested' you should see an ob/gyn to have them perform an internal exam and rule out any complications.

Am I just being super crazy?  Do I even really have any need to worry?  I mean I have never really had a problem getting pregnant (considering I was once) Like I said I just don't want to make him go through all that pain if I am going to be the reason we can't conceive.  I get my cycle regularly and have never been on any type of birth control (except for using condoms).

It does seem like you are looking into it too much.  You are right, you got pregnant once, so you know you can get pregnant.  Chances are you and your partner will be fine but remember it can take up to a year to get pregnant.

I think you should be okay conceiving, honey. Don't stress over it because that does interfere with your cycles and ovulation. Relax and go to the doctor, if it will help you rest easier.  Good luck :)

I think you'll be fine and you can buy an at home fertility test, but I think it's garbage and a huge waste of money. Good luck!
