Not sure charges for fertility check-up, but for IVF will be costly and you have to go through series of Injection. Therefore, IVF is the last option. Good new is, medisave covers part of it.
Your Pap Smear is part of your fertility screening? If yes, all the best to you.
nice to know someone frm healthcare on e forum.. to guide us *like mua* who does not knows anything about these stuffz..
im doing pap smear for the very 1st time after 3 yrs of marraige.. where we r def sexually active..
just to make sure im fine down there.. without stuffs stucking everywhere.. cos tht was what happen to my sis..
soo.. checking for pap's can link to infertilty stuffs?..
i mean by checking pap's can find out on infertility issues?
tht will be amazing.. but if not.. bummer again.. lol
im in such a thight financial issues.. soo tht is what kept me back frm all these checks.. where i should have done years back.. haizz..
wt to do.. still trying to breath everyday..
Im gg nuts. Over the weekend I met up with some friends and one of the ladies who got married a few months later than me is pregnant already. And Im still trying so hard, not knowing the reason for my infertility for over 2 years! To make it worst, my parent in law started their “whats stopping you guys from having kids” question.
I really dont’t know what I can do. I have seen fertility doc who asked me go for ivf, as dunnoe whats the cause. I delayed for about 8 months since what he suggested, but my egg and hubby’s troops just wun make it happened.
Should I go see a gynae for 2nd opinion (I have seen fertitlity doc), who has been around since at least 30 years? My friend recommended Tanny Chan from Glenegles. Her prices are so much more ex than my fertility doc who is also very well known. Her starting rate for my case is $250!
Or should I go accupunture?
Or should I go Jurong traditional chinese medicine??
What should I do??? :……(
Have been trying for a year and nothing happened so I went for a scan and blood test, and found that my left fallopian tube is blocked, so that reduces my chances of conceiving. If I didn't go I would have never known and continued trying, cos i feel perfectly fine. Have you gone for a check and confirmed that nothing is wrong with you and your husband? If yes then maybe you can try traditional chinese medicine? I read quite a few bad reviews in the forum about the Jurong traditional chinese medicine so I went to the one at Marine Parade instead. You can read more in the other traditional chinese medicine thread..
I visited Ban Choon Chan just about 3 months into my trying to concieve. Uncle said I got no problem, but after visiting him for a 5 months, from 1 pack each month to 2 packs of herbs each month, it still does not work.
Have done my FSH, progesterone, bla bla tests… still like this. After seeing the semi blocked tube, doc ask me to go for ivf. But bug an yuan to do ivf without further trying other means… so my dear husband and I decided to try naturally… but more than half a year of trying, still nothing…
Btw, how old are you?? Im 31 this year… My body seems to be healthy and have regular menses… just dont know why…
Recently I read a book, found out that I might be under stress. Im the sort that cant take stress… so thinking could it be my work stress plus trying to concieve stress that’s causing all these? My dear husband gg to do another more detailed fertility SA test soon, to make sure that it’s not his side…
Jurong traditional chinese medicine no good ? Dunnoe if we talking about the same one. My sister In law ask me go Jurong one cuz her sister got preggy after a few visits…
I'm 26 this year.. trying to concieve for a year already and nothing happened.. Very healthy also.. dont drink dont club eat lots of greens, taking folic acid and vitamin B for 6 months already, exercise regularly.. so sometimes very pek cek to keep trying and failing... but yet can't tell all the kaypo pple that I have problem, otherwise they give you the "Oh-so-poor-thing" or "why-you-so-young-got-problem" face, and they try to introduce you all sorts of their sure-work remedies or doctors.. -_-''

hahah... that uncle also said the same thing to me!!! hahaha. say dont worry, very i will get preggie. very confident. but 2 years still the same... actually he's my hubby's long distance uncle. the uncle dont know us... keke..
but really, you r only 26, still got quite a number of years and youth to try. dont let stress thingy contribute.
what kind of vit B are you taking? im reading books on fertility. Lots of info... maybe you want to go to lib and source for one that suits you??
Im still thinking if i should go visit Tanny Chan tomolo. Her consultation is $250! really very high.
I hope Uncle Ban does work.. i have so many packets of herbs and they are very expensive.. it better be. Ask your husband to tell him that you are the long dist niece-in-law, maybe you can skip the 3 hr queue? Lol...
Taking vit B complex, the guardian lady said this helps to create more blood cells..
Sad to say, people dont't really care how old are you, they start commenting based on how long you have been married. Everyone seemed to treat me like I am in my 30s, and keep hurrying me to have kids.. Nobody remembers I am only in my mid 20s.. And trust me, I have read so many fertility books.. Best Positions, BBT Charting, Cervical Mucus and its Effects on Conceiving, Best times for Conceiving, Foods to take to Improve Conception, even "Fengshui for Descendent Luck".. I think at the end of the day it really boils down to luck cos I have done everything I can.. Now just praying for baby dust to blow into the room from the window haha
I went for pap smear only so far, all is normal. Gynae said I should just keep trying for a few more months then if not successful, he will recommend ultrasound pelvis scan for more detailed check. it's not cheap seeing gynae so I've been delaying it. Thought I just keep trying first and take the traditional chinese medicine.
I'm probably going to buy the ovulation prediction kit becos I'm always not sure when is my most fertile time due to irregular period.
Any of you tried this OPK before? Worth it to buy? i just dont't want to spend money unnecessarly.
I have 1 kid now, but people sometimes still bug hubby and I and keep asking so when is next one, especially becos so many of my friends and cousins all have 2nd one already. Some even have 3rd one. I really hate it. Makes me feel worse. I didn't go for friend's kids' birthday party this weekend becos I wanted to avoid all the questions. All of the friends who were going all have 2 or 3 kids, so I know if I go, I will feel worse. Right now quite discourage so I didnt want the extra stress. Sigh.
Hi babybubbles! He didn't exactly say blocked tube.. He said there is a problem with my left ovary and tube and recommend that I go to a gynae to check on it (which I already did before going so I know). He even say I didn't ovulate this month by touching my pulse. Not sure if he is really that fantastic, but there are so many good reviews on him, and I saw 2 indian couples and a Korean family in the queue with me, so i think i'd probably give it a shot too.. Next time you can try asking the kaypo pple "you sponsor me for the 2nd kid?" that might help to shut them up abit..
I never had a positive OPK before.. I do BBT charting as well, and I only started to use the OPK for the 1st day (it was negative), and the next day's temperature showed me that ovulation had occurred.. Think there is another thread in the forum advising that OPK should be done at every 12 hr intervals.. otherwise you might miss the short fertile window
Hihi Jennifer.. Yes relax and dont't stress is easier said than done... I dont't think I can really relax.. But at least won't give up without a long fight hahah
*baby dust to us all*

Px22.. This month I failed again. I was quite hopeful this month but past 3 days my temp dropped to the point that I know af coming. Now af starting. Now on my way to work, on the verge of bursting out. What should I do? Yesterday my dear husband went to do SA test, the price was ridiculous! $200 plus!!! My dear husband wasn't too happy about it. It ended up both of us did not have a happy day yesterday.
I have never thought that I will have infertiliy problem as I also have regular menses. Really dont know what to do. Feel like quitting job and relax and trying to concieve but that will bring more stress to dear husband. And it's Bo bao tio strategy.
How's your side? Hopeful this month?
Morning dolphin! What do you mean by temperature dropped? It drops just before AF is supposed to start? My temp only dropped during ovulation.. now its been very constant around 37degrees for the past 1.5weeks... But I also think no success this month.. AF not here yet, but having very bad cramps the past 2 days. Next week's my birthday I was still hoping for a BIG birthday present from God/Kwan Yin but seems like no chance sigh
Yes, in the current environment, its quite stressful for husbands to be the sole breadwinner.. Everything is so expensive! Just look at the dumb ERP.. increase again...
Its ok .. fail then we try again, and again, and again . We are survivors ya?
SA is never cheap .. when will results be out? ask him eat more bananas and drink guiness stout- I heard it produces "Champion Swimmers" hahah
Good afternoon PX22! J I meant my LP temp dropped. Anyway, my temp dropped and my af really coming . this morning see 36.10 I knew its here … no more hope for this month . Ey cramp after O is good right?? you sure no chance ?? Maybe beanie drilling in …
Have you pray for a lot from Guan Yin yet?
Advanced Happy Birthday to you first ya!
Yesterday had a bad day with dear husband. Had a SA test done that cost $200plus! dear husband not happy. End up we got conflict. This morning super emo when know af coming… during office, went out to call my mom and cry… L like a small kid… sigh…
Mom suggest that at most quit my job and realx at home… but that has to be the very last thing I should do …
Ey… Good luck to you ok? Hope this month is your luckily month!
Nope not praying yet. We are normally at the bottom of Kwan Yin Mah's To-Do-List
She's busy with those not married pple, so that they can get pregnant and tie the knot quickly.. ever notice how easy it is for unwed couples to shotgun? Murphy's law at work haha
Thanks for the wishes! Tell your hubby its always good to check than to try and try and not know the reasons for not conceiving.. The earlier you know the sooner you can rectify... Money can be earned again, but time lost will never come back..
I know how it feels.. when i see AF or when I get a negative test kit I get so mad as well.. And nope I not having high hopes since Uncle Ban say this month not ovulating so no chance (and he always say trust him..35 years of experience in Marine Parade is for a reason one! ) although the cramps are worse than anything I have experienced... beanie drilling in so late ? today is day 30 of cycle.. and my AF is late all the time anyway...
Hi sillydolphin, hope you and hubby feeling better now. I know it can be very stressful and I understand how you are feeling! My hubby also sometimes feel quite xian of trying and getting demoralised, so he said we should just forget it and let nature takes its course.
We argued about it sometimes, then I realise that I also dont't want both of us to get too stress by this. Then it becomes like a chore and cause unhappiness between us. So we decided to try to take it easy, but at the same time, just keep track of fertile period and boil some herbs to increase chances.
Hi Px22, I went to see uncle ban and got quite a few packs of herbs for myself and hubby. He said my right ovary is a bit weak but said his herbs will be able to help. So at least I felt a bit more encouraged! Hope it works!
Anyway all the best to you all, hope for some good news this month!
Thanks bubbles.. Long wait?
How many packs of herbs did you have? I had 6.. cost me $130. But others in the queue only had 2 packs max so i really wonder why?
Hi hi, have not been here for so long.
I am 30 this year. Been trying for a year. Nothing. My husband not really keen on seeing a doc. I think its a kind of ego thingy. I think he worry that maybe he got problem then like no face. Menses regular, ovulating and all. ANd it doesnt help too that all my friends are mother already, all marry later than me. Then like accidents and accidents....lol...to them like so easy.
I guess I dont care already. My relatives or colleagues ask, I will just say I am waiting for it to happen. Usually they get the hint and shut up.
hi everyone.. when reading all your posts i finally feel not alone ..
im 26 this year, been married and trying for a year now, and no success. it's been very frustrating. sometimes i tell myself not to get disappointed when I see AF. but at the back of my mind i am just so sad, i can't think or eat or anything. i am just counting and counting until my next ovulation and researching ways. i'm so sick of hearing about people who got married THIS YEAR and who are already preggerz. it's damn annoying.
anyway... my hubby and i have already been for a checkup at KK. now just waiting for the results. i went for the first blood test. hoping not to go for the second one (cos that's the one where you have to wait for second day of meenses)...
can i ask a question, ladies? what does it mean when we say "dont't be stress when making love? and dont't think about conceiving,?"
i mean.... isnt it always at the back of your mind... especially if you've been trying for a long time....
