    Hello everyone, ive been stalking this site and thought its time i joined!


    Basically im now deperate, i need all the help i can get. Ive been ttc for roughly 4-5yrs. Im at the point where i have researched all i can and am finding it hard keeping my feelings from leaking out and potentially distroying my life, bit extreme maybe but thats how i feel.

    Please can someone point me in the right direction to who i should seek medical advice from? I'm against seeing my own doctor again as he is semi-retired i never see the same doc more than once. I did ask once, and was brushed off, given folic tabs and then left.
    I was going to try family planning, but have been told there for 'how not to get pregnant'

    So can anyone point me in the right direction before i go crazy??

    Hello. Sorry, I can't really be of any help as I'm still at the Clomid taking stage so haven't really got anything practical to say. Have you thought about changing GP's though? My GP specialises in obs and gynae which come in very useful! Have you any near you that do that?

    :hug:

    Thanks for replying :)

    See this is where im failing i think, i have no idea about my gp or how id go about getting one that can offer me what i need..Im clueless.
    I haven't even had Clomid or anything apart from the folic acid tablets that where given to me, after that i was to nervous about going back so i just left it and hoped it'd happen, but it never has. Ive never even gotten pregnant. My o/h has a daughter and thats making me even more stressed out.
    Did you first go to your doctor then? i dont know where to start..

    Well I started TTC after a miscarriage last year. The GP I was registered already specialised in Obs/Gynae so I don't know how you'd go about finding one - maybe someone on here who lives in the same area as you can recommend a good doctor? Have you had any tests done at all, like CD21 tests? Do you do ov predicitions tests or use a fertility monitor, or take temperatures, anything like that? Just wondering what you do/have done so that people can make suggestions x

    Oh im so sorry to hear you had to go through that, sounds like you have a good doc to look after you though :) Well i have tried them temp monitering but that didnt really work for me, to be honest i didnt have a clue what i was doing..Normally i can tell when im ovulating, well at least i thought i could (normally i get stretchy pains nr ov and the other signs to look out for) But other than that, nope havent tried anything else i always just assumed it would happen.xx

    Hi there
    Have you thought about seeing a female GP. Most lady docs from my experience are very understanding of women's problems. they might have even gone through things themselves!
    4-5 years is a long time TTC. Your GP can start with basic blood test, checks to see if you are ovulating, ultrasound scans etc and your partner's semen analysis.
    From then it's a referral to a fertility specialist.
    Bite the bullet and book an appointment or as they ladies above have suggested, change your GP. You shouldn't just be fobbed off with folic acid

    take care and hugs

    Hey Hun! I have been in your shoes... It's hard to figure out. I swore up and down I was ov'ing and even went through a whole false pregnancy thing a couple of cycles ago. My fertility doctor did a full blood panel though, which revealed that I wasn't ov'ing at all! It sucks but at least now I know. Now, I can start fertility drugs. I am emotionally drained and tired so I am giving it a break right now. I have problems with DH too, so the chances are slimmer. Basically the blood is best. That will tell your doc what is going on to the tee. Best of luck to you and don't worry about going frantic. I have been there and it is more harmful than helpful. You are in the right place. I am glad you are here!

    I know this was posted ages ago, i didnt see your replies so i just wanted to say thank you so much for your support.

    Im still ttc.. but i did get referred to a fertility clinic i had a lap & dye that said i didnt always ovulate. I then tried clomid, which made me very hormonal lol. Also tests revealed OH also has lower motility than norm..

    But thank you again xx
