    Default Seeing the Dr - what should we expect?

    So, this is our 10th month of ttc!!!

    My DH saw the Dr today, about a seperate issue, but agreed to discuss the ttc issue as well and see if he would start on tests etc for us. Dr has agreed to do some tests but said he'd like to talk to the two of us and talk about it with him together first. Has anyone else had this talk with their Dr? What should we expect?

    Hi Nessie,

    That's nice your DH asked about the ttc at the doctor's, thats good to see he is keen and interested in whats going on Same thing happened with us. DH had to see gp in relation to other things a while ago & asked to see us both re the ttc issue. It was really good. He had ordered a sperm analysis test for DH & blood tests for me to see my hormone levels. Also wanted to do a pap smear, but I wasn't keen on that as prefer for an ob/gyn to do it as they know what they're doing It looked like I wasn't ovulating and may have pcos (which I do) so was refered to ob/gyn, which was good. I'd ask for a referal now because depending which one you see there may be a few months wait (mine was 5 months to see new patients but worth the wait).

    Good luck with it all & let us know how it goes

    Hmm, yeah, I've wondered about PCOS before, but I've been using some ovulation tests, and they indicate that I do ovulate - although quite late in the cycle. Also, I've fallen pregnant before (about 5 years ago now) although couldn't go through with it for a number of reasons. So my question is, can you have PCOS even if you've been pregnant (without medical intervention) before?

    Also I realy hope I don't have to wait 5 months to see someone! eek!

    Yeah, its been confirmed that I have PCOS & we got pregnant naturally in Dec 2011 but sadly it didn't work out. It took us ages though! So I think you can def still have PCOS even if you have been preg before. The way it effects me is that it takes my body forever to ovulate...thats why we're starting clomid soon to make my body ovulate.

    And don't worry, not all doctors are that long a wait..there's only one female ob/gyn where I live & she's popular so thats why it was a long wait for me.

    Good luck, keep us updated as to how it all goes

    My doctor sent me for some blood tests to do the preconception check (make sure Im up to date with my vaccines) and also checked me for PCOS which involved blood tests and an ultrasound. Got my test results today and I dont have PCOS..so thats good. I needed to get a rubella booster shot cos I wasnt immune and I also had to have more blood tests to test me for Thalassaemia. I also need to get a pap smear. Next step is to test DPs sperm.

    I think its pretty routine stuff they ask. Good luck!

    48 hours. We were thinking of starting tonight (he's on night shift anyway) so that he can get it done by Saturday, but I'm de to ovulate within the next few days and we don't want to miss the chance.

    When are you getting the analysis done? Have you also got some tests done?
