    Michelle - wow.. I didn't know it was that high! My stomach turned reading that

    Kim - I hope you little one is feeling better today. Poor poppet

    Coco - I am glad that your friend is so strong and is ready to try again.

    I got an email with some info from the fertility clinic we are using re: blood tests and screening before TTC - I have to copy and paste it so I'm sorry for the super long post.

    . Both partners are screened for sperm antibodies as either may carry antibodies to sperm in their blood that can reduce fertilisation.
    . Women are screened for Rubella (German Measles) immunity. Being vaccinated in the past does not guarantee protection. Vaccination is recommended for women with negative immunity, to ensure there is no risk to the baby should the mother come in contact with an infected person during pregnancy. This will delay treatment for one month.
    . Both partners are screened for Varicella (chickenpox) antibodies. If antibodies are not present vaccination is recommended as chickenpox infection in adults can result in significant illness, birth defects if pregnant and a predisposition to shingles in the future. Vaccination would delay treatment by one month.
    . Both partners are screened for Vitamin D levels. Since the introduction of measures to avoid skin cancers more Australians are developing Vitamin D deficiency, which impacts on your health, short and long term, and also that of any potential child. Vitamin D is essential for normal bone formation and protects against some cancers long term. Studies have also shown that if a woman is Vitamin D deficient in the later stages of pregnancy the resulting child is more likely to develop conditions such as multiple sclerosis when they become an adult.
    . Both partners are screened for red cell folate and homocysteine levels. Low folate levels are associated with an increased risk of birth defects, preterm labour, reduced intrauterine growth and miscarriage. The low levels of folate and other B group vitamins are also associated with a rise in a protein breakdown product, homocysteine, which also increases the risk of birth defects, preterm delivery, poor intrauterine growth and raised blood pressure (preeclampsia) in pregnancy. Raised homocysteine also increases the risk of adult conditions, particularly heart disease.
    . Women also have their blood group and antibodies checked, to determine if an Anti D (Rhesus) injection is necessary if there is an early pregnancy loss.
    . VDRL – we also include a test for syphilis for women, so that you don’t require any antenatal screening tests when you are pregnant.
    . Both partners will have a urine test to screen for chlamydia. In addition, male partners are screened for gonorrhoea and female partners are screened for iodine levels. Sufficient iodine levels are required to maximise normal thyroid function and prevent impairment of intellectual development in babies.

    Hi I have just joined
    I had my implant removed in mid January when my husband and I decided to TTC
    I did not have a period on it at all for the year I had it in. I have pcos was always irregular but only 2 months in between.
    After coming off the implant I did not have a period for 98 days then had one for 4 days very light
    Now it's been 103 days since that period
    I began Metformin and thyroxin a month and a half ago when I found out I had high insulin and an under active thyroid
    Have had stomach cramps on and off for the last few months in the ovary area
    And a lot of discharge nearly feeling like I'm leaking urine
    Have had sore itchy horribleness annoying Nd sore nipples
    My breasts have become really soft over the weekend
    We tested and had a negative result on Monday

    My stomach is bigger and always feels swollen

    I don't know what's going on
    Had a blood test about 4 weeks ago which was negative also

    Welcome Missy - I am sorry to hear about what you are going through. I am not too sure why that might be happening. Has your dr said what could be causing it? Have they organised any scans to have a look if there is something going on?

    Welcome, and sorry to hear you're having a hard time. Sounds like some ultrasounds are in order to see what's happening down there!

    Wow Rainbow, that is really thorough testing! Good they are checking lots of things out.

    Welcome Missy. Sounds like it's been a bit of a hard road so far, hopefully you can get to the bottom of your concerns soon! I'd advise the same as MrsT, maybe an ultrasound? Or have you been seeing just your gp, or a fertility specialist?

    Thank you for all that info rainbow! I need to make sure my vitamin d levels are up.

    Missy I'm sorry to hear about all those problems. I'm not sure about the symptoms after having an implant but like the others recommend you get some more tests done. It could just be your body getting back to normal.

    When I stopped the BCP my body went all weird for a few months. I'm back on it because we're going overseas. But when we come back I'm going to get off it again and start taking some pregnancy vitamins.

    Coco - apparently it's fairly common to be vitamin D deficient because of skin cancer awareness and precautions taken against sun rays. More slip slop slap = deficiencies!! Lol
