Author Topic: Do you have an egg allergy and were able to get pregnant?  (Read 1089 times)

This is the dumbest question, but I am trying to get pregnant and I just realized, does my allergy to eggs mean that my body doesn't have any eggs? Have you gotten pregnant even though you are allergic to eggs? Im wondering if my body is so used to fighting off eggs that I can't even produce my own.

Allergy to hen's eggs has nothing to do with your (human) eggs and shouldn't affect pregnancy.  I got pregnant twice - easily even though I had other medical problems that should have made it difficult - and I'm allergic to eggs.  Good luck!

you grew your own eggs inside your mothers womb before you were born!
Its OK to have dreams:one day my kids will be legal adults & have the skills to pick up a bath towel.

Good luck!  It is quite usual for a person to take quite a while to get pregnant--up to a year is not uncommon.  But depending on your age, you might want to see a specialist.  If you are younger (20s or maybe early 30s) you could wait and see.  If you are older and not getting pregnant when you want to, I'd recommend seeing a specialist sooner rather than later.
