My subsequent pregnancies piggy-backed onto the previous one's hormones, but that all diminished very quickly after our last mc. After putting on 8kg REALLY quickly I took myself off to the doctors for more bloods/scans which revealed my inbalance was back, ovaries were cystic again, insulin resistance had returned with vengence and I had high cortisol levels.
It REALLY doesn't hurt to have bloods done. But I have also had the problem of convincing doctors that it was necessary. Hope you get one that listens soon. Where do you live?
I agree it doesn't hurt to have bloods done - if your doc refuses then I would find another doc. I had my AMH, progesterone, thyroid etc all tested and DH's sperm tested all before contacting a Fertility Clinic. All our tests were perfect - actually beyond perfect. I think I got these tests done after 6 months trying and we had a 13 month old baby already so clearly shouldn't be infertile.
Just had an appt with my Fertility Clinic and we are trying naturally this cycle before doing another IVF cycle if we get a BFN. This will be how we roll from now on lol. Moving on to August...
I am trying to decide whether to see a naturopath for advice on TTC. I'm worried about maybe wasting money on herbs and supplements when I might get preg without them. Has anyone had good/bad experiences with naturopaths?
I just turned 35 and we've been trying around 12 months, but to be honest we have struggled to DTD more than once or twice per cycle so I think we might need to just put in more effort (?!) My GP isn't worried and thinks we need to give it a proper go for six more months.
Sky - i know nothing about Naturopaths but do know they can be $$$. Maybe try timing your BDing to get best chance of BFP? Charting OV etc?
Mumsical - All the best for August!
Me: day 2 of OPK. Results are identical to yesterday. Is it meant to be lighter? The same? i have no idea!
Top one is CD9 (yest) and bottom one is CD 10 today. Does this mean i haven't OV yet? I'm confused. I've had pain for the last 3 days so thought i OV'd for sure already.
