I was wondering if anyone could recommend a gynae or fertility specialist in Perth that understands and treats the issue of a luteal phase defect, as well as poor CM.
I live in Port Hedland and no longer trust the gynaes up here (long story involving a misdiagnosis and an ectopic pregnancy that resulted in the loss of a Fallopian tube) so my GP has agreed to refer me to Perth, but I don't want to travel all that way and end up seeing another FS who is only interested in IVF.
My luteal phases are only about 8 days and I have almost no CM, and I know from research that there are many treatment options to try before putting me through IVF (e.g. progesterone to elongate my luteal phase, or variants of Clomid that don't dry you out - I did get pregnant on Clomid, and the last round I took I went to a LP of 14 days so I know that I do respond to medication).
I'm 30 and very healthy and I don't want to do IVF unless it's the only option left, which at this stage it isn't, but I know that quite a lot of doctors seem to dismiss / have little interest in cycle tracking / FAM etc.
I've been researching the FSs in Perth and most of the profiles seem to just go on about how proficient they are at laparoscopies etc. I've already had three laps so am not interested!
Many thanks for all your assistance with this and best wishes to all of you!!!
