PLEASE HELP!!

So DH and I have reached our TTC deadline, he's willing to give it another 6 months as long as we seek medical help. He wants me to go to get checked out, and he will have another SA and speak with the doctor that done his Vas reversal.

My question is, can I see an OB/GYN for fertility issues or do I need to see a specialist? we don't have any specialists

Yay for ewcm!!!! Bd your little bums off :)

That sucks that the clinic was closed -hopefully you're feeling better. With all this ewcm, maybe the cramping has been O related? You never know! Mother nature might be throwing you for a loop :) She's a tricky bugger!!!!

I'm happy you haven't given up on these board completely. Please feel free to pm me & we can stay in touch on the "other side" through email or fb. Us old timers need to stick together :)

I spoke too soon regarding the EWCM, all day I've had huge amounts of the stuff! a mix of watery and stretchy... WTH is going on! I can't wait to see an OB/GYN and get some answers for all of this. My body has been screwed this whole cycle! Here's a run down of what happened:

Went on holiday Dec 7th

was due to O around the 8th-9th

BD'ed a lot while away, and wasn't really thining about TTC.

Had pink spotting on 12th, just once when I wiped then nothing since.

25-27th started getting minor cramps

27th got AF (not a heavy flow, but not light either)

29th AF finished

Jan 2nd Started getting cramps and backache.

Jan 7th EWCM - surely not O already, I usually O around CD 18, this is only CD12!!

this is just another mean joke from mother nature before we start our fertility treatments, guarenteed!!

I went back to the clinic today but they were closed :( I guess I'll just wait for my appointment on the 17th.

I have often wondered whether I'm actually ovulating because most months I never get any EWCM, although when I used OPK's they were positive for around 1-2 days... I don't know :( this was the first first month that I had a 2-day period, usually they are 4-5 days.

I'm still having period like cramps, but my stomach doesn't seem so bloated this morning. I just pray that it's nothing serious and that we can start our IUI next month.

Sophie...how is it going? Any answers yet? Keep us posted and good luck! I was thinking, maybe with short light periods you may be having annovulatory cycles and clomid or soy isoflavins would do the trick?

I went to the walk-in clinic and they were full for the day so I managed to get an appointment for Jan 17th (to get my referral). I'm gonna go back there tomorrow (Saturday) at 10am because I'm really not feeling good. In the past

Can't you just get a referral to an OB/GYN & start there? They can definitely do the b/w. They can get everything started...chin up hon! We'll figure it out :)

I haven't been to the clinic yet as DH has been working away from home, but I did call them to find out what steps we need to take and they said they would probably refer us to an RE in Edmonton as we don't have any where we live (we only have OB/GYB's). I don't see how that would work, we live 5 hrs from Edmonton!

Grrrrrr! Is nothing ever gonna work! :(

That's great news about getting your referral. We're so lucky to have all of our diagnostic testing covered up here in the great white north :) Fx'd you get some answers really soon!

Thanks Angela!

I'm going to a walk-in clinic tonight to see if i can get a referral to the OB/GYN specialist, my periods are regular but only last 2-3 days and I don't get much (if any) EWCM. Hopefully they will come up with something that helps me (and DH's low count)! I really want this to be our year...

I'm so happy youre getting an extension!!!! We will get our 2012 bfps :)

You can start with an OB or even a gp. My gp started the b/w...they'll check it on cd 3 to check a bunch of hormone levels. The b/w after O is the progesterone check -usually done at 7dpo. Would you consider temping or opk's just to confirm O & get accurate b/w done? My gp referred me to an RE who is luckily 10 mins away. He ran additional b/w at cd 16. All of that checked out & the next step is an HSG to check that your tubes aren't blocked. I had that done at the hospital & that is done before cd10.

Maybe a round or 2 of clomid will do the trick? You guys might not need to jump straight to ivf -iui could work well for you & is much cheaper. They'd "wash" dh's sperm & inject the strong ones. My RE charges around $1000 cdn & includes fertility drugs too. Fx'd it doesn't come to that though! Good luck Sophie :)
