How do you convince him to conceive sooner?

My husband and I will be 21 in November. We have been married for over 1 1/2 years, but together for over 5. About a month after we got married, we found out that we were pregnant, although we weren't expecting it, we were extatic. We soon found out that the fetus wasn't developing so we had a D&C done. A couple of months after that we discovered that we were pregnant again. There were complications. There was an abnormal, fluid filled sack around the fetus' neck and body. We had no idea what was going on. We had a CVS done and the results came back as our child having Turner Syndrome. At our next doctors apointment 3 weeks later, we discovered that she had passed a couple of days after the CVS was done. Next month, we will be going to therapy to see if there was any reason why we have had these issues at such a young age. I am still very anxious to start a family. I obviously want to wait until after the therapy, but my husband wants to wait until we are 25. Is there any way to try to convince him to conceive sooner?

Welcome to ehealthforum.
In your case, problem of chromosomal abnormality could be reason for repeated problems.
I would advise a genetic test for both you and your husband to see what is wrong and what are the chances for you to have a normal baby. Proceed with your next pregnancy after ateast 6 months to 1 year gap, such that the uterus heals up completely after the procedures you undergo to clean it. It will reduce chances of miscarriage due to implantation issues.
Wait for the therapy to complete and see when you can safely start planning for pregnancy.
Take care.

It will be a year as of Septmber 24th. All I want to do is start after that. But my husband wants to wait longer. I just want to know if there is any way to convince him to start sooner if we can.
