I did have to wait for mine and it took about 3 or 4 weeks, I bet that wasn't what you wanted to hear

Oh no, i wish i'd not just read that bit either. i've just been referred to hospital for a scan appointment a couple of days ago and had been hoping it would come this week sometime. Wishful thinking i think!

I had to wait for a letter from the hospital for my scan and it took about a week to come. So hopefully yours will be with you soon.

Hi, am afraid mine took nearly 5weeks to come!
Hope yours gets to you quicker, I was going insane...jx

I waited about a week and a half for mine it come really quick.
It just depends where you live some places are quicker than others

You're 12 weeks fairly soon eh? I'd call the hospital and chase it up - if it's already in the post then all the better. My letter arrived about 2 weeks after I'd seen the gp.

Hi i got my letter after 3 weeks but I would have been 15 weeks when I had scan if it wasnt for the fact that they had a cancelation and bought me forward a week.
This waiting malarky is awful.

you should give your hospital a call in the morning you never know your letter could have got lost in post. would hate for you to loose out on your appointment because off the royal mail.

I never got a letter. Got fed up and rang hospital, turns out my letter got lost in the post! They were very sorry, but it wasn't their fault. My first scan is tomorrow and I'll be 14 weeks.
Jan 9, 2008 7:06PM

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
