    Default TMI Alert- heavy periods issues, impacting fertility?

    I was placed on the pill when I was 15 due to heavy periods. In 2006 I came off the pill to have my first child.

    Since DS (took several years to fall PG), clomid for DD, I still continue to have irregular and heavy periods from time to time. TMI- when I do get my period, I usually get large clots (about the size of a golf ball) every time I go to the toilet.


    My previous doctor and gyno who placed me on the pill/ clomid dismissed my concern for PCOS or endo as I have fallen pregnant.




    Should I go see a different specialist who will investigate these issues further understanding that I am trying to fall pregnant again?

    If you're not happy with your current health provider seek a 2nd or 3rd opinion

    I think you need to get a second opinion. I have pcos and I have fallen pregnant a number of times (mostly naturally, once with assistance) so to say that is just wrong.

    I would get a second opinion, Drs really shouldn't be dismissing your concerns especially since you are TTC. Definitely get another opinion if you aren't happy. Good luck!

    It’s just so fricking annoying not knowing what the hell is wrong with me.

    Thank you for the advice, it is appreciated. I might do some research so I’m well informed of what questions to ask, so I’m not brushed off.

    Find a specialist who knows more about endometriosis and get a second opinion. I fell pregnant naturally and also have endo. I think there's a website called ECCA (endometriosis care centre Australia) and that has a list of specialists in Australia.
