I went to my Gp this morning after 15 months to be told i had to wait 2 years, is this the norm ? i had expected to be refered today but he downright refused.
I have had a couple of 21 days bloods done one with a level of 2 and one with a level of 39, i know from opks i don't ovulate every month, i have this month for the first time in 3 months, i have erratic cycles of 16, 26 or 32 days, i have pre menstral spotting and i have had PID..am i wrong to think i though have been refered today or am i just feeling sorry for myself ?
This same Dr told me at 8 months to go back at 12 months but i have waited till now as had some surgery in june and wanted to see if that helped.
am thinking of going to see a nice lady dr but dunno if 2 years is normal ir not ?
does anyone else hate those bloody graphs they draw at every oppertunity, you know the 80% of couples will be pregnant in a year type things.. i swear he's drawn me the same graph 4 times, if he ever does it again i think i am going to stab him in the eye with his biro..
i read the NICE guidelines and they definatly say a year or under if someone has obvious reasons for not concieving.. i think not ovulating is probably the most straight forward and obvious reason for not concieving there is yet he still woudln't refer me..
i might print off the guidelines and go back and wave them under his nose, i did think about going to see another GP but that seems a bit rude ??
My GP is obviously very good then - we saw her after a year and a bit of ttc, she did day 1/day 21 blood tests and sperm test, then after we got results (I wasn't ov'ing, DH's sperm not brilliant) referred us to gynae who saw us within 4 weeks. Now on 3rd cycle of Clomid as prescribed by gynae after investigations to check it wasn't PCOS/endo (which it wasn't). Going back to gynae in Feb 08 if no sucess with Clomid, when we will - in his words - try the next step (whatever that might be). Should point out that we're ttc no1 and neither of us have had kids before, so maybe there's something different (in your GP's mind if not in reality) about secondary infertility?
