Hi, when I went to the doctors to get it confirmed he didnt do anything apart from check my bp. He told me to book an appointment with the mw who will then do all the tests.

My doctor didn't do anything apart from ask a few questions and check my BP. Told me to book my first appointment with midwife I turned up a week later (about 6 weeks) to see midwife and she said i didn't need to see her till 12 weeks. She did fill out a form for a 12 week dating scan at six weeks and took my BP again.

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
