Iv been TTC for nearly 2 years. I finally picked up the courage to get help this year in March2012, they done blood tests for me for a few months. Then i had an ultrasound done. I then had an appointment with a gynacologist, and she was really nice. She then told me to ring the hosp on the first day of my next period (This was for my HSG). Which i did but then ended up cancelling the appointment because i was too scared to find out if i couldnt have babies. So i left it off a few months. Then i finally went last thursday to have the HSG, and it was good news after all my tubes are fine. My partner has had a sperm check and hes fine. So the question is now, whats wrong.
How long have you been TTC? Have you had any help yet like blood tests? HSG?..ect..
Keep us posted
My doctor set the ball rolling after 12 months of trying. She was brilliant and we were both having checks the following months. The sooner you go, the sooner they can establish if there is anything wrong and (hopefully) get you sorted. Good luck x
I went to my GP after about four months as I wasn't having regular periods and I have a complicated gynae history. She sent me away and told me not to worry. I then paid to have some private bloodwork and was able to take that back and she agreed to make a referral after about 6months.
The NICE guidelines are to refer any woman under 35 with no history after 1 year and any woman over 35/or with gynae problems after 6 months. If your GP doesn't refer you it's just to do with rationing of services and not the right thing for you.
I would recommend that you go back and see your GP every 3 or 4 weeks and eventually they will refer you to get you out of their hair.
It's sad but we have to be pushy to get what we want/need/deserve/pay for with all of our bloody NI contributions
