    So we went in at 1.15pm and sat in the waiting room. 2 mins later Im called in. We go into the room and straightaway she asks Rob to sit for a min and takes me to another room to check height and weight.

    So then we go back to where Rob is, she introduces herself, cant remember her name lol but shes the Registrar :D

    First thing she says is my bmi is 27, 10 months ago it was 30 and that theyre happy to give me any treatments needed :D:D

    She goes through the baisc questions for both me and rob. Drinking, Smoking, diabetes etc....

    She then explains to me about the results sent from the other hopsital and how they indicated pcos. So she says that she will repeat the basic tests for hormone levels etc. I mentioned about teh border line test for thyroid (as well as family history) so shes going to repeat that too. Those two were done today.

    Shes sent we home with 3 empty vials to get further blood tests to check progesterone levels. One at cd21, one at cd 28 and if needed (but she doubted) one at cd 35.

    She explained what she would be looking for with the progesterone levels and even drew a little diagram lol!

    Im pleased with how the appointment went, she was very nice and informative :D

    Next appointment is Sept 19th

    She did say that 25 would be the ideal BMI for me but she didnt say directly loose more weight. Just that is was good i had lost some and to keep it up. Watch intake of carbs etc...
