    Hello ladies,

    I was also dx with PCOS. I go to Dr. Choy, well i think she is very good even thou a little expensive. It has been almost 3 month see in her, i lost 33 lbs and my homrones are almost normal. I'm very pleased with her and as i read many other ladies are as well. It's a very hard journey and i hope we will all reach our goal of having a little miracles. Just yesterday i went to see her, there was a lady with her baby girl and her husband. Baby was 1 month old and was so cute. Her daddy was so proud, like little boy. It was so nice.

    I wonder if there is any support group around for ladies with PCOS or any of you interested in starting one?
    Good luck ladies
    Michaela

    MayC, tell me about it, I couldn't believe my eyes. The consultation cost $800 and the U/S $800 as well but it was all the other tests! They are running like 20 tests and each is $400 - $600.

    I just found out I may be able to get 50% of this back from my insurance company thank God!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Now as for the pregnancy kit, I don't want another false hope you know? Do you think the Doc would be able to tell clearly if my period was due today / tomorrow? And how do I explain that I ovulated 13 days ago and she talks about something possibly happening 7-8 days ago?

    Loads of Baby Dust to all....

    a sac? would that possibly look like a small black area in the uterus? she saw one, she said it didn't look like a cyst, it didn't have that shape and size apparently. then she said my lining looked really really good and from the two I think she came to that predicament.

    well i didn't ask as i was completelly shocked by her comment, in fact I tried to convince her that it was very unlikely as I was a lot further down my cycle than 7-8 days. She just said to wait and see. so that's what I will TRY to do.

    i went there to see what was wrong with me... you know what I mean... oh, I remember she said she couldn't see any follicles. Would one normally have new follicles already visible a day before their period? and what about if they had just conceived?

    Jeee I am sorry I have million questions don't I. Sorry!!!!

    MickeyMom, we miss hearing from you, how did you go today?

    MickeyMom, fingers crossed for your appt tmrw - let me know how the tube test went as I think I will be sent to that too eventually.

    MayC, good luck with a sperm test next week.

    Has anyone ever had (or heard of) infertility related to thyroid problems, by the way?

    went well. i was given antibiotics and pain medication half an hour before the procedure and was told to expect some menstrual cramp like pain. I went to a diagnostic laboratory also at Queen's Road (Melbourne Plaza) for the procedure. Paid $2000 for it. Felt a little discomfort during the procedure (nurses say i have an amazing tolerance for pain!), and in half an hour they were able to send the result to Dr. Lo. I am clear so blocked tubes is not a problem.

    when i went to dr. lo aug 17, i was already expecting my period because of the symptoms. he did the ultra-sound and saw that my cervical wall lining is already thick. signs on impending period. so i knew then. got my period aug 20.

    Hi MickeyMom,

    Good to hear it all went well. Wow that's amazing about how little pain you felt! And at least you know the little embryos can travel freely so that's great news.

    What other tests have you had done so far? What did the doc say were the next steps for you?

    Anyway, you have one big hurdle crossed, so treat yourself to something and have a nice weekend.:bighug

    hi brightstar,
    thanks a lot for the kind wishes!
    dr lo and I agreed on trying it naturally for at least 3-6 more months. I am 33 this year so he thinks I still have time. So far, i've done the blood test, urine diagnostics, trans v ultra-sound and the x/ray of the tubes.

    Dr asked me to go on a no carb diet, and has given me Metformin to take every night. Hopefully, this helps me with my PCOS.

    I will see him again after New Year, and he says, hopefully, pregnant!

    he is one sweet, understanding and considerate doctor. I really feel very positive with him.
