Ooops. Double post.
Ooops. Double post.
Don’t listen to certain posters who know nothing and think they can tell the world what to do. You have something legitimately wrong. You need to push and be your own advocate! Be firm but clear to to the new doctor. It’s not like you are just being needy. Not having a period for several months is a serious heAlth issue whether TTC or not. I can’t believe you’ve been blown off by two!! doctors. Im sorry but just keep pushing! Hugs.
@MissLunchbox: I am sorry for your troubles TTC, and can sympathize, it took me 15 months with irregular cycles to get pregnant and its hard to relax when you are concerned it might never happen. I definitely demanded testing and specialists during my first year, and encourage you to keep advocating for yourself. I also saw a naturopath while I was waiting for my referrals, and in my case, that is what got me pregnant (my specialist ignored my low progesterone and wanted to go straight in for a laparoscopy, that I didn’t end up needing).
I also wanted to share that I know of 3 ladies in real life who were diagnosed with pcos, two of them got pregnant on their first cycles and another kept getting pregnant (but sadly miscarrying for unrelated reasons, but now has 2 beautiful girls) – so even though your condition is cutting down on your chances to ovulate, it is possible that you might be able to conceive without medical intervention.
I completely understand how hard it is to wait and see though 🙁 good luck!
I agree with seeing a reproductive endocrinologist, and not waiting. The other thing, I don’t know if you’re overweight, but that’s common with PCOS, and losing weight can actually help a lot with getting your body to ovulate on its own, as well as the other obvious benefits. So that could be something to work on while you’re figuring this out. Good luck!
This is why I’m straight up lying to my doctor if I have been trying unsucessfully for 6 months. I think you really need to push, do not take no for an answer.
@lovemygsp: Thanks for the support! I do feel the need to advocate, I need to stick to my guns and not take no for an answer!
@hamikay: Thank you so much for sharing your experience and advice! I am definitely looking into all options, and your story gives me some hope 🙂
@ZoeyGirl: Yes! I heard that too, even a 10% reduction can really help I heard. I lost about 40 pounds 2 years ago and got down to my ideal weight..gained about 10 back. So I’m trying to focus on getting that off too. I have noticed since going off BC I’m struggling with keeping my weight off. Such a bummer..haha. But YES! Something to focus on in the mean time.
@FauxBoho: That may be my best bet. I’m not sure how much detail would be in my chart about that…or if I could just say they misunderstood and wrote in the wrong date. I’m getting really tired of being told to wait. Meanwhile I haven’t had my period since April.. *eyeroll*
I have a feww friends who’ve gone through similar experiences some are patient and wait the standard year since they are all under 30. Others have zero patience and lie about how long they’ve been trying. If I were you I’d just say we’ve been trying over a year! Or I’d skip the middle man and try to find a reproductive endocrinologist. I know it’s hard to try to relax but try not to stress yourself out, not bc of ovulation just for you personally. Take time just for you. Good luck.. hope you get results soon!
I haven’t had this experience myself, but I have a girlfriend who knew long before she got married that she would likely have trouble conceiving as she also had irregular periods. After they got married, she went to the doctor and just lied and said they’d been trying for a year already when they hadn’t been.
They helped her right away, she got put on chlomid for about a year and for her, it didn’t help because she had severe endometriosis… But she just had surgery to remove that recently and from what I hear (I don’t talk to her often) the outlook is good now.
I would just find a new doctor (if you can) and tell them it’s already been a year… how would they know the difference?
