    having

    Can I say this in English?
    1. Having no opportunity/chance for a decent talk/conversation is hard.
    1. Having had no opportunity/chance for a decent talk/conversation was hard.

    Thanks for your help.

    Re: having

    With the exception of the fact that you've numbered both of them with 1, all the permutations seem OK to me. Be aware, though, that it's also possible to say "Having no opportunity/chance for a decent talk/conversation was hard".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
