    Default What should I expect?

    I had my first appointment with a fertility specialist yesterday. We have been ttc for a year and had 4 chemical pregnancies. I also had 3 before conceiving my youngest.
    He has got me to do more bloods tests on day 22 (gp had done basic ones already) and ordered some chromosome test for dh, but he doesn't think that will be a problem.
    He said he is pretty sure I will just need some medication to help with ovulation and told me to stop charting to.
    So by medication, would he mean chlomid?
    Anyone had a similar history and had success with minimal treatment?

    I had ovulation issues and after a few rounds of clomid and a few injections to assist - we are now expecting our first bub. The clomid messes with your hormones and moods but I'm so glad it worked without having to progress through to IVF. Good luck on your journey!

    Thanks lollieh! I hope that we have a similar story to tell soon.
    I am waiting for the blood test results to see if I have a problem with ovulation. I'm not convinced I do though if I have been falling pregnant.

    When will you know the results? I was still ovulating just not every month and not regularly (so AF was not regular) so it made it hard to predict and do timings etc. I was charting like crazy and couldn't find a pattern!
