    Good evening. no it won't affect you in any way. As long as you ovulate regularly, you won't have any problem conceiving too.

    I was told by 2 gyny that it may affect my health; my period may become irregular. I may loose my libido. could have fibroids. Be constantly depressed. etc. I was recommended to buy a sex toy. But I don't want to!

    If I may ask, the past 6 years of your celibacy have you had irregular periods? Yes your libido may drop that is expected for a once sexually active person but once you commence again, it will pick up. If you are in doubt, you may as well just go to see a specialist to run some test to rule out fibroid if that's a fear. Otherwise there's no reason to be scared.
