I've been referred to a fertility specialist, what next & how long?
I've been referred to a fertility specialist because of irregular cycles and nasty black spotting that goes on for weeks before my actual AF. My gp has told me he thinks I could have pcos. He has referred me to see a fertility specialist. This surprised me because I started ttc in March 2011. Got pregnant in December 2011 but miscarried at 6 weeks so I've not been ttc for a year since the MC yet. Obviously I'm pleased he has one this because I want to know why my cycles are like this. They have been like it ever since I came off the pill in 2010. From your experience how long am I likely to have to wait for my appointment with the consultant? What tests/ action is likely to be taken? I'm really worried they will end up not being able to tell me what's going on/ fix whatever's wrong. Is there anything I need to be doing before the appointment/ take with me? I assume the appointment is to find out what's wrong with my cycles and s not a precursor to IVF. Is this right? I don't want to rush into IVF. I'd rather try something like Clomid first. Thanks
