I don't really have any periods at all (maybe one/two a year)
I think that I ovulate as I occasionally have PMS symptoms and was very surprised when we unintentionally managed to conceive DS who is now 13months (I had been advised I would not be able to conceive naturally)
We are now trying for DC2 but I am unsure if we would be eligible for anything like Clomid on the NHS as we already have a DC.
You should be entitled to have investigations like blood tests, ultrasounds etc. (we've just had the full shebang, unfortunately we're unexplained). I think you can also get Clomid on the NHS, but no IVF, IUI or any other assisted reproduction methods if you've already got a child.
Yes you should. I am currently on clomid trying for my second child. I also wasn't made to wait a year (I'm 30), my GP just referred me on the basis of very long cycles. I'm in NW England. My gynocologist said they fund clomid and the preliminary tests (sperm analysis, HSG, bloods, I had to have them also despite it being likely it was an ovulation issue, but nhs wouldn't find anything after the clomid. I'm crossing fingers cycle 3 clomid works for me! Good luck with GP.
Thank you all very much! I certainly wasn't expecting and IVF assistance but was unsure about medication to assist slightly more regular ovulation! Sounds like it really depends!
My BMI is fine (I'm a size 8!) I outwardly have no symptoms of PCOS apart from the lack of periods (I used to have pain as well but that has not happened for years!) During my pregnancy I was advised one ovary was very cystic, I had an ovarian cyst rupture about 7 years ago and I think there is some scarring but the other had apparently improved from my first scan to my next!
I do have the odd drink but generally only one/two glasses maybe once a week. I have a daily coffee but have some decaf left over from when I was pregnant with DS!
Having said all of that...
I almost can't believe I'm posting this but this morning I've had two very faint BFPs!!
Waiting to test again in the morning but a little in shock!
