    i have been ttc for 2 years and 5 months (minus three months off that for my husbands basic training) and i have my First GP appointment tomorrow to get a referral to the fertility specialist...here's my question..
    we have tried a MILLION home remidies of sorts...grapefruit juice, EPO, vitex, preseed, cough medicines, zinc, maca root, probiotics, and most recently soy isoflavones...
    do you think it would be better to just leave out all the junk and just leave it at "im not Pregnant after all this time" or should i tell the 100% truth even if i know what they are going to say about it all....:shrug:

    i really dont think i can take a lecture on how none of these things work and how im stupid for trying them, but i also feel like i need to be honest to get the best results....keep in mind i have never met my new GP before...i dont even know if it is a man or a woman:dohh: so i have no idea how they will react at all...

    I think it's best if they have all information. Worst case scenerio they say they don't help but you wouldnt want anything youre taking to interfer with your treatment.

    Hi MrS. MaBrEy. I'm not saying to hide the fact you've done all these things, but remember, they are medical professionals who have trained for many years and possibly/probably don't believe in 'old wives tales'. Yes, some foods are higher in certain vitamins than others and some of these vitamins are helpful to conceive, but they will normally look at the facts and make a decision on that (i.e. blood test results, cycle length, OH SA, examinations/scans etc...). I'm sure they'll ask what you've tried in which case tell them (along with things like how often you :sex:), but they certainly won't think you're stupid for trying these things - no-one does! I'm quite a 'sientific' girl myself, but I would certainly try something simple if it made a difference (someone said raspberries help with fertility/pregnancy so guess what, I went to the supermarket and picked up some raspberries! - they did bugger all though :(). Best of luck for tomorrow.

    I would tell the truth... Depending on how your GP appears to you! Don't do it if they seem very straight edge by the book or at least limit some of it down to basic supplements not the other stuff! But I think it helps them see that you are serious about wanting to have a LO!!

    ive decided that im going to be as honest as possible. i think the only thing i am going to leave out are the suppliments...epo, vitex, and Soy...but that being said if this GP is open to hearing it i will share that too...I am off EVERYTHING this cycle so that i know for sure any testing that may be done is accurate...so thats the plan! i will update and let you all know how the appointment goes...its 13 hours away...really more like 12 because i have to be there early! I am SO nervous!
