Aibu to think I should see Dr about this?

Hope you don't mind me posting in Aibu but I could do with the traffic and I may even be jumping the gun here.

I have what a specialist described as "very polycystic ovaries" after having a scan about 3 years ago as I had about 2 periods a year. Life got in the way and I wasn't Ttc at the time so I didn't really pursue it.

Anyway, my irregular periods continued (never more than 2 per year). DH and I started Ttc in November 14. Had 2 periods last year and (TMI) we have been religiously DTD every other day since.

Starting to get v anxious about this now. I understand that clomid can be prescribed in these cases. I am planning to go to the GP (it will be the first time I've been to this Dr as we recently moved to a new area) this week.

Is there anything particularly I should insist upon or mention? I don't want to be fobbed off.

Tia for any replies.

Also I have read that Agnus Castus is good for triggering an periods, anyone have any experience of this?

yes, see a GP, tell them what you've written here and say what you want to happen.

no, do not self-prescribe. Herbal drugs can interact with others.

Yes if you've been trying for a year go get it checked out

How long have you been TTC for?

Yes go see your Gp. if you have been tTC for over a year and already have a diagnoses of PCOS they should be able to start the various tests and things that they need to do to start looking into treatment. Also insist that they check your DP's sperm whilst they are about it - just because you know you have a medical condition he might also and the more knowledge you have about all of it the better.

I know how frustrating it is, I also have very scared ovaries and PCOS, but you still might get pregnant without treatment I'm due surprise baby number 3 next month and my previous two pregnancies came about whilst waiting for tests to be done and treatment started.

I know this is much easier said than done, but stress really does impact ttc so try not to worry. Speak to your gp. As PP have said both you and dh will be tested. This is very worthwhile - turned out I had pcos and dh had slow swimmers.

Hang on in there. I know it is a ridiculous cliché and I used to want to punch people when they said it but keep hopeful. I naturally conceived ds the month I was due to start clomid.

Go and see them and get referred to theinfertility clinic. GPs can't (and shouldn't) prescribe clomid as it can have serious problems. And good luck.
