So i cant remember what ive posted on here, so sorry if i repeat myself....Been seeing a consultant chemical pathologist for a few months, i think this is my 4/5 appointment, the last one she basically said tests were done, everything was normal and she would write to my gp, i then queried a few things and she put me on clomid 50g for 3 months which hasnt worked sad So im going back next month and im feeling so depressed about going back as i feel she's just going to say again that she's done her bit and thats it keep trying sad Has anyone been sent back to gp after going thru fertility tests? Was there anything else done or is that it? Just feels like if there was a problem i would be offered help ivf or something and because there isnt, or they havent found anything wrong im not getting any sad

This hasn't happened to me nut I was puzzled that you had been seen by a chemical pathologist rather than being referred to a fertility specialist.

Could it be that your gp needs to refer you to a fertility clinic? Unexplained is a horrible limbo land and does seem to involve a lot of waiting - I don't think they will consider you for IVF unless you've been trying 3 years (sometimes less over 35). That said, there is a good reason for keeping trying while you're still in with a chance.

Sorry been offline for a bit....

Im based in west wales in a little town, when i went to the gp about not getting pregnant, he mentioned that he would get me an appointment at a fertility clinic, i'd presumed she was a fertility specialist :/ I just worry about what is going to be said next time, keep trying? 9 years not long enough? I just dont know why she mentioned she was going to send a letter to my gp and she had done her tests, can the gp offer ivf?
