    Got witch today :sleep: (chose this symbol because it's become so monotonous, the same damn thing every month, know what I mean?) so that now makes it official - we've been trying for 12 months.

    I've had the CD21 test and the hubby's had his swimmers tested, all fine so far.

    My dr suspects I might have had a cyst or 2, and I have a 9-10 day luteal phase which puts me on the borderline.

    I'm gonna go visit the dr again and ask for more tests. Eg. thyroid tests. Can anyone recommend what else I can ask for?

    Hey Trix :hugs:

    What about ultrasound and HSG? They can check to see how your tubes are then take it from there?x

    I'd ask for your GP to refer you to a specialist. They could then check for blockages, and do ultrasounds to confirm cysts or not.

    Good luck hun

    Sorry to see you in this section

    Definitely ask for a laparoscopy hunni - they check everything out and do the HSG whislt you are under - so it gets everything done in one go.

    Sorry that the witch got you sweetie.

    B x x:hugs:

    CD21 is bloods taken on cycle day 21. It is a test that checks hormone levels and confirms whether ovulation has taken place or not. It is usually the first test to be carried out by a GP prior to referral to a fertility specialist.

    Just a word of support girlies I had 15 months of unprotected sex before I got pregnant and I was secretly convinced there was something wrong, then out of the blue the day after I graduated I realised I was late and tested positive.

    (granted we weren't 'trying' i.e. calling him home to have it NOW!, but all the same we did have :sex: alot :blush: )

    So I just wanna say dont give up - sending you some dust :hug:

    :dust:
