Private Gyno update - Long! (posted on long termm ttc too)

Hi all, sorry I didn't post yesterday, guess nobody minds, LOL!

Gyno confirmed that the 6mth progesterone stops O and could possibly help cycle after, possibly not, no guarantee. Said it was the standard here and then after that they look into sperm tests, HSG and then meds or whatever depending on results.

Anyway she didn't do an internal as I showed her the previous results and she said that I obviously have pcos and no need to recheck, great!

I said I did not want to feel like I was wasting 6mths after wasting 12 already (10 really but not important if I don't O). Anyway she's put me forward for a HSG which I wanted but I will be sooooooo nervous about those results after so much bad luck recently and history of chlamydia. I need to at least have nice clear tubes please, the pcos is enough! Anyway I can't have it until after af so last night I had the first of 10 progesterone so guessing I'll have the hsg in maybe 23 days or so.

DH is also going to do a sperm test so hoping he'll be able to drop that in next Tues, he's already nervous about 'performing' on demand so fingers crossed. Also need this one to be ok, we really have enough on at the moment with stress so can't take much more bad news.

After those I'm hoping we can take results to private fertility specialist but not entirely sure if we're covered for that bit so need to see when we have results etc. If not then I'll have to wait for the nhs style appt and whichever way I think I'm going to have to do the 6mth progesterone bit too, who knows. I'd prefer something more pro active if it doesn't end up making a difference!

So anyway I am pleased that we can at least proceed a bit more with tests. Oh and I asked her about blood tests and she didn't seem to think it was important. Will suggest those at next appt maybe although not sure what difference it'll make. Oh and in all the test excitement I forgot to ask about vits and diet, gggrrr.

Then this morning when I got up I was sure there was a tiny bit of ewcm and I was wetter. Probably related to the tablet but anyway I was hoping for a miricle. DH wouldn't BD due to stress and migriane but said later, I will be sooooo upset if he can't at least try once if I have to wait 6mths etc. Probably useless anyway as the progesterone is to force period but in my silly mind I kind of hoped it's worth a shot. Will try to BD later but will expect af followed by HSG. Even after these terrible days I can still convince myself that I'm 'normal', cruel body!

Thanks for reading if you got this far, doubt I'll have much to post about now for a while x Goodluck to everyone else x


  • It's good that you are now on the road with some treatment. I really hope the experts can help you out! You do hear quite a few success stories of people with pcos having babies after treatment, so there is definitely hope for you.

    Wishing you and your OH all the best xx
  • Good luck with it all! Best of luck for you and DH x
  • Porky, thanks for the update.

    Really pray it happens for you and dh asap. Can't imagine how difficult it must be.

    Take care and and good luck xxx
  • Hi Porky, god talk about stressful. It sounds like she was very helpful though and they really have a clear plan for you. That's good you didn't need another internal too.

    What a lot of information for you to take in! I am sure they wouldn't mind you phoning back and asking about vits/diet etc?

    By the way,thank you for your message on my post, that's so funny your dad lives at Carlyon. I grew up in Par and used to walk to the beach. Now DH and I walk our dog there every weekend, right around the "block" - the main road then along the top overlooking the sea - the private road with all the hotels and lovely huge houses, dreaming about winning the lottery, lol! x
  • Hey Porky, I wish you all the luck in the world!!! Lots of girls on here have went on to have healthy babies and they have suffered from PCOS. Your time will come hun, thinking of you big hug xxxxxxxxx
  • Hi Porky, pleased that you are starting to get somewhere, and although the hsg is not something to look forwards to at least its a step in the right direction. Please post if you need to have a moan and need some support or if you just want a chat, its nice to hear from you.
    Take care.
  • Thanks for sharing your post, im only trying to concieve month 1, but have already been told ive got PCOS. Obviously they still expect me to try for 6 months- 1 year anyway. Ive got my fingers crossed, but part of me feels like it might be 12 wasted months:\(

    Its really intertesting to read your story. I wish you lots of luck and hope to see your BFP soon

    Gem x:\(
  • Hi Ames, yep stressful. May phone back about vits, worth a thought, cheers chick.

    Cornwall stuff is spooky, LOL. I went to Par market when it rained, onto the beach (over rocks and picked mussels, if you try this and see my dad then you don't know me, LOL, not that you really do but still). Unfortunately my dad doesn't live on the best street on 'The block' but does live off the next street behind it, what a small world. I bet he drives past you on the weekend, he he. You and DH don't go to to the local sailing club do you? that would be too much!! I'm not saying another thing! he he

    Congrats again on your BFP, I bet you're on cloud 9! Was your DH there when you tested??
