Welcome to the thread Babydust1 and thanks for sharing that info on what tests you have been through. I really hope all the drilling(!) and clomid brings you the you have worked so hard for. Lots of to you.
I have only been actively ttc for 7 months so far and already I'm going mad so I can't imagine 4 years of this. You so deserve your very soon.
I haven't paid a visit to docs yet so it is very good to hear the kind of things I may have to expect in the future. Planning to give it to end of the year trying and visit docs in new year if no by then
it is hard and heartbreaking TTC it took me 4 years to the get this op to try and get things moving and all the tests you have to go through!
i didnt want to go to the doctors either but i 1st went to the doctors 3 years ago!!! and over the 3 years i just got appts saying go way try this and come back in 6 months i went back and they say it again come back in 6 months !! in the end i said cant u see ive been listed here 3 years now and been TTC for 4 years and im still waiting for u to actually do something for me!! i got so mad because most of all they dont know how hard it is they see women like us everyday but they still never know what we go through in the end he looked back at all my tests i had and my OH sperms which was perfect he had more then should have lol!! it was just my PCOS that is stopping me thats when he said wow u have actually been coming here for a long time now we will do the op and still he wanted me to have it on my bday and i said no he said ok 6 days after your bday and i agreed i got the letter and which it said august my bday was in June!! so i got mad i was just sick of waiting for something to be done ! i expected to go to dr's and get seen to and hopefully things would have got moving i'm so glad i never waited and waited for me to actually make that appt with the dr because its took so long to get where i am!
Hey babydust, I hope you don't mind me asking but how old are you? Just wondering cos I'm 32 now and off to the docs tonight and if my whole process takes 3-4 years then I'm going to be older than I'd like to be! Hope that's not to personal.
I had a bit of CM last night so definitely think its on its way.
Is it today you are seeing doc for a chat? x
Hey nat, been to the docs. She was really nice and helpful. Asked how long we'd been ttc and how often we she reckons that every other day is best cos it gives the oh a chance to recover, to often will deplete reserves! She seemed to think we are doing all the right things so she's referring me to a fertility doc at the hospital. Oh has to come along to give a sample, his face will be a picture! so now it's just a waiting game, hopefully it won't be ages but nhs waiting lists are not short are they! Feel better now I've been and got the ball rolling.
Thanks hun, glad I've got the ball rolling. Hope the wait isn't to long but maybe now I've made that leap I'll subconsciously relax a bit. You never know maybe a is winging it's way to us all this month! Fingers crossed!
I think it will help you to relax about it all a bit more - which can only be good.
I kinda wonder sometimes if this forum is helping or not... Makes me think so much more about the whole thing, but at the same time I love to be able to chat to others about it. And no matter how terrible you feel about your own situation, you realise that there are other couples out there who have had a much worse time. Trouble is, you can't help wondering if you are going to turn into one of those couples.
Anyway, Mr Windswept is out at a meeting, but when he gets in we'll work hard for our lil 'un!
