Suggest remedy for getting pregnant

I want to know what is going on with my body. I am 26 years old, 5'5 and 198lbs. I have four children. 6, 5, 4, and 3. As you can see they are what you call stairsteps. With my last 3 all being ten months apart. Before them I had severe cramps whenever I came on my period. After them I had none well at least when my youngest was still an infant. But recently I have been having severe cramps with my period, and sometimes twice in a month, sometimes the flow is extremely light, and sometimes ridiculously heavy. I was on the shot for about a year once my 3 year old was born. Soon after I stopped taking the shot I found out that I was pregnant and I had a medical abortion. That was sucessful although all of the doctors were amazed at the fact that I passed the embryo without any kind of pain what-so-ever. I also have taken the plan B pill two times after that. Since then I haven't been able to become pregnant and my periods are different. Im actually more concerned with not being able to get pregnant as I love being a stay at home mom, and would like one more before I turn 30, so I can have my tubes tied. Also I don't know if this has anything to do with anything but the shape of my vagina looks a little weird it looks as if the roof of the vagina fell down is this normal. Is this what is keeping my from becoming pregnant is the roof blocking an entrance to my uterus? and what is going on with my cycles?

Hi,
Thanks for the query. I understand your concern.
You had undergone 4 live births , abortions twice with plan B pills & medical abortions. You had been on shots for contraception... all of these been loading with high dose hormones( leading ? hormonal imbalance ) through out your child bearing age.
I feel that's the cause of your irregular periods. Any way, you nar still not 30.. so you should get investigated for the irregular menses ( CBC to detect anemia/ USG scan to see for ovarian cyst, PCOD or uterine fibroid/ Thyroid function tests / Hormonal assay ).. to find possible cause & exclude others. Get specific treatment from a gynecologist for regulating your periods.
Well , after periods are regular & ovulating, you can very well plan for your 6th pregnancy if you wish so.
Thanks.
