So I went to the GP today and she was as unhelpful as I thought she would be. I told her that we were up to seven months of trying now, and she suggested getting all the pre-conception blood work done... even though she was the one who requested it. She then told me I needed a booster hep b shot, which I'd already had at her request... Then she told me to start taking Elevit. When I told her that I've been on Blacmores for almost a year she just nodded. That's it. I asked when to come back to her and she said (with a little laugh first) "When you've missed a period. When you're pregnant." And I then asked when to come back if things weren't working and her response was a simple "I don't know, twelve months? Yeah, let's say twelve months." Then nothing else... SERIOUSLY WOMAN? So, I don't think I'm going back to her at all.
@HoneySoyChicken how annoying... if we aren't successful I want to get a referral to a fs. When will you go see another doctor?
Currently cd23 (7dpo) here and has a bit of pink cm when I wiped early today. Thought maybe af might have been on her way as o happened 1-2 days earlier so thought af might come even earlier than last month. I really hope it isn't af... I haven't had any further pink cm so fx its implantation bleeding.
@HoneySoyChicken that's extremely frustrating. She totally fobbed you off like it wasn't a big deal. That wouldn't sit right with me and I'd go see someone else. The journey TTC can be such a stressful, testing & emotional time and she should understand that. Disappointing! Hope you get some answers soon.
@curlybird noooooo!! I hope AF stays away. I really hope it's not AF and it's implantation bleed.
I think it might be af More pink when i wiped this morning..
I'm new to TTC and just wondering how long you wait before testing? Like will you test on the morning AF is due if it isn't there when you wake up or will you wait a few more days? I'm just curious what other people do as I'm trying to find my own balance between being obsessive (not good for my mental health) and waiting too long (which is still really difficult!).
