From going to doc to getting scan date?
Jan 27, 2009 11:11AM
I went to the doctors to confirm my scan date last Monday, i've not heard anything yet, does it take a while? I was expecting to get my prescription card thing at least so I can take to my dentist..............

It took my doctor a few weeks to sort it all, think they have a lot of paperwork n stuff. Once I got my prescription card, I had my appointment date through the post next day and the appointment was for the following week.
Hope that helps,

my doctor didn't do anything - he said to see the mw in practice.
i saw her xmas eve and got the letter for my scan through on 2nd jan - scan is tomorrow!!
still not had my card through for prescriptions - mw said that she forgot to do it!!
Seems like its different in every area.

After my first app with MW I was sent for a dating scan about 10 days later, I had my exemption card sent through about 5 days after this (they had to wait for my edd from scan as due to PCOS we had nothing else to go from!)
Think it just depends on the area, I was living in Cumbria at the time and it's not very busy there!

I went to see the doc on the 6th january I then had to register with the midwife at the reception desk she then rang and made arangements to see me to get all my details for the day after then I hav e only just got mine through for a week on fri I think it depends on the estimated date your midwife gives you

Trying to conceive with PCOS.
Hi, I hope I’m posting this in the right place. I’m new to this so bare with me 🙈. Background - I was diagnosed with PCOS a little over a year ago and have been trying to conceive for just over 2 years. I have been to fertility appointments who haven’t found any additional problems (e.g. hcg scan came back clear) and my partners tests were all ok. I understand weight is a big factor with PCOS and I have lost 10% of my body weight as recommended and keep trying to loose more. The more time goes on the more deflated and useless I feel. Each time I get excited thinking it might be my time then I get a false test 🤦♀️ The fertility appointments are far apart and the months in between each one just seem longer and longer. I was was wondering if anyone had been through similar experiences and have any advice? I have also read online that ovulation sticks don’t always work for women with PCOS. Anyone have any advice on this? Thank you for taking the time to read this. x
