Doctors visit 1-PCOS

This didn't go well at all. I thought by seeing a female doctor she would be sympathetic to the pain I suffer during my cycle, especially when the beloved (hmmm) Aunt Flo is actually here!
I sat down in this doctors office and explained about how things have been since my miscarriage nearly two years ago and how erratic things have been- and that I was on cycle day 73 and would like something to bring on my period as we have our first (it's technically our second but we were all I'll the first time so it was ruined) family holiday together and I don't want to spend the week in bed with AF and being unable to swim!
She had a moan about my weight, didn't actually weigh me just judged me on appearance, didn't take any blood or check my blood pressure just said '' I suspect you have PCOS, if you won't go back on the pill there's nothing I can do to help you!'' so she wrote me a prescription for something that would apparently lessen the flow of my period and I left, in tears, to a very bemused mother in law who, once she had listened to what had happened looked like she was going to blow a gasket.

So this leaves me with quite a jumbled mass of 'well have I got PCOS? Do I need tests? medication? Scans?.' so now I wait for Monday to roll round to make an appointment with my usual doctor. Because, although he's a bloke, I think he will listen and arrange a few tests to find out if this is true.

In the meantime I'm trying to find out as much info as I can. If anyone has any info on PCOS that they'd like to share with me please feel free to leave a comment below.

Quick Update!

Tomorrow I'm off to see another doctor about my cycle 'issues', a female doctor this time, to see what she has to say about it. Im currently cycle day 72. I have a funny feeling i may actually have finally ovlated sunday but who knows! Hubby was ill so even if I was I didn't get chance to 'try' :(.

Currently writing my final essay for K101, then that just leaves lots of revision and the 3 hours painstaking exam. The end is in sight!

Our family holiday is just over 2 weeks away now. Very excited. It's going to be sooo good to get away from here, just us 3, for a few days!

Anyhoo I'll let you all know what the doctor said tomorrow!

Chow for now xxx

Getting worried...

Sorry that my posts have been infrequent lately. Lots going on at home with one thing or another.
Anyway, I've decided to book myself in with a doctor ASAP. I'm fed up with my cycles now, my cycles so far this year have been 52,53,55 and so far cycle 4 has been 62 days long and have had cramps now for over 2 weeks so lord knows what's going on! Next month it will be 2 years since I lost my last baby and last year I only had 6 cycles and this year looks to be much the same. Something's not right. Time to face the music. I will be seeing a different doctor than usual though as my usual GP just says its my weight, which of course it may well be, but I want a second opinion. Wish me look. I'll be ringing first thing tomorrow so I'll let you know when my appointment is etc. speak soon x

I'm Back

Hey everyone,

I have not been around now for sometime. I have been rather unwell suffering with depression but I have had lots of help and am now almost back on top form and getting back to my normal routines. One thing I want more than anything, as you know, is another addition to our family. However I currently have a BMI of 45 and so my desires for another baby are more a distant dream for now. On the plus side though I rejoined slimming world 5 weeks ago to help get some of this weight shifted. It's been rather slow going, I'm the first to admit that the last 2-3 weeks especially I have not given the diet my all. But you can read more about my weightloss journey here if you would like.

It's also with a heavy heart I write about another mummy blogger being rather poorly. Poor Multiple Mummy is currently in hospital and I just wanted to Say she is in my thoughts and I hope she gets well really soon.
