    ok so 12 months of ttc with highly irregular periods.... anything from 2 week cycles to 8 week cycles.

    my doctor finally took an interest 3 months ago and has taken bloods each month for my last 3 cycles and each test has come back as no ovulation...

    guessing this makes the chances of a BFP pretty low!!!!

    does anyone know what a dr/ gynae/ obs can do / advise / prescribe ???

    or even what happens next??? im pretty confused....

    well i haven't had a period since jan 9th and i definitely haven't ovulated. Doctor is referring me to gynae. She will more than likely do blood tests on cd21 (which I have no idea how she's supposed to that seeing as I'm on cd92 and no sign of AF or new cycle beginning) and a pelvic ultrasound to see if I have any abnormalities eg ovarian cysts etc. If you're not ovulating they can give a drug, like clomid, which will almost supercharge your ovaries and stimulate ovulation. I don't know anymore than this but if I get my appointment soon I'll report back. Hope this helps

    I would imagine you'll be prescribed clomid. My friend was ttc for a year. Like you, she then found out she wasn't ovulating, was given clomid, and now has eight-year-old twins. :)

    It doesn't sound very nice, but focus on the result.
