Post subject: Help!!!
I'm new to all this - only joined the site few days ago
me and my partner have been ttc for 3 months now but i have quite a long list of problems which could make it more difficult 2 conceive so im told by gp -
i have been going to gynaecologist for 3and half years after going to gp with very painful and very heavy periods - they tested my hormone levels and put me on metformin because they said my hormone levels looked as though i had polycystic ovaries so they told me 2 lose weight - which i have and go on pill
this seemed 2 work as i had regular lighter periods but back in oct i missed a cycle which made me think i might have been pg so went 2 gp - NEG
then had more blood tests and gp said my luteinizing hormone wasnt as strong as it should be so i wasnt ovulating - took tablets 4 this problem but gp wont do further tests 2 c if this prob has corrected itself with the tabs - all they tell me is 2 try and get pg and if no sign of a baby in a year go back to try treatment such as clomid
im so confused and want baby SO much
just wondered if any1 got advice or similar probs
sorry 4 such a long post - just so much to get off my chest

I'm sorry I don't know very much about the drugs you mentioned, but I wouldn't be happy with the treatment you received !
I'm not putting all the blame on the GP , but they all seem to be in the same boat they just don't have the time or the funds - GOD it makes me mad !!! , but I would, if it's possible, ask to see your gynaecologist after all he's the specialist.
As for the long post, thats what this site is about you can get it off your chest and there are plenty here to listen and understand.
God Bless, try to stay positive, sending loads of baby dust your way
