    ok so after debate between my gp and nurse, a scan has confirmed no abnormalities detected (endometriosis, pcos ect) and everything looks to be fine with my uterus and ovaries. However i have long cycles (from 40 - 93 days) and therefore i dont ovulate regulary so i dont understand whats going on! Anyone been through something similar? Any help/advice would be welcome x

    Have you had any blood tests taken to look at your e2, LH, oestrogen, tesosterone, prolactin & thyroid? Also have you been referred onto a specialist?

    Sorry, not sure how far you've already got with the following tests. Usually you will have full hormonal screen, u/s, Hycosy or HSG, Semen annalysis and sometimes MRI of the pituitary if your prolactin is raised. Also, are you over or underweight at all or have any other health issues? And they might consider your contraceptive / cycle history e.g. did you comme off birth control just before ttc and have your cycles always been this way?

    Apols again if this is stuff they already explored with you. I'm afraid I do not ovulate at all so I'm not sure about causes of long cycles per se, other than the usual pcos and anything that might get picked up from the above.

    thanks for replying. i did have bloods done but dont know if the things you mentioned were looked at. I am overweight and have a high bmi which is why the gp initally said pcos, but no other health issues. I dont smoke or drink exessivley. Hopefully some more investigations will get underway tomorrow

    I ovulate but still have unexplained secondary infertility, so I have experience with it, but have no answers, it really sucks to be pretty much told that there IS something wrong with you, they just don't know WHAT. Very very frustrating.

    Wanna_bump it would be worth you asking which blood tests they carried out and asking for a print out of the numbers, plus an explanation whether they are normal / slightly abnormal etc. If you are still being overseen by the GP as opposed to the gynea, unless they have specific fertility knowlege, I don't think they really know or want to interpret the results for you. When I got mine the GP basically said well your not ovulating, no idea why and referred me onto a fertility specialist. If you can get hold of the results it might give you some more indication while your waiting for further referrals.
