Yay! Baby dust to all! My MS is horrible and I got a girl :P
Envy all you mummies out there! I'm like losing hope already on trying to concieve pee on the stick and always get a negative!
Hope I do not have to go through IUI or IVF and can conceive naturally soon.... I think my mother in law is really hoping to have a grandchild soon
This may sound silly... but I was wondering how do you ladies know that you are ovulating during that month? Do you use OPKs, Temp Chart or....? I've been using OPKs daily and because I'm on clomid, it shows positive everyday and it's quite frustrating as these false positive ain't helping to catch my egg at all. Was wondering is there any other inexpensive way.... probably i should go back to my gyane for a scan on my follicles every week?
Me too. I dont know about my ovulation dates etc. I just let things happened naturally. If it has been a while since you trying to concieve, can visit doctors. They got tests such as sperm analysis etc. Or see traditional chinese medicine. I was planning to see traditional chinese medicine but I jackpot.. relax most impt!
Yes yes agree, have to see fertility specialist. Me too, can't detect my ovulation day too, given up on ovulation strips too. Always negative..
Butterookies, previously when I was on one cycle of clomid, my gynae asked me to test with ovulation strips too. But since you always get false positve, you might want to seek advice from your gynae again? Is it normal to keep getting false positive?
My hubby also ask me to relax and let nature be but I think it happens for non-PCOS ladies ... with PCOS and unable to track ovulation period quite difficult to relax.. it's like waiting to strike 4D.. hais.
Probably it's time to see a fertility specialist soon... any good recommendations?? Thank you ladies for all your advises hehe.... hope all PCOS ladies like me get their wishes come true soon!
I heard one is Dr Fong Yang, the other is LC Foong. But I'm not sure which is better.
Singapore Obstetrician and Gynaecologist | Dr Joan Thong Pao-Wen | Raffles Hospital
she's the fertility specialist that i saw and the one that did all the necessary tests ... she is also the one that told me only IUI or IVF .. stopped seeing her ... but currently am seeing her for my pregnancy cos she is the only one i can get appt fast to confirm my unplanned pregnancy but going to change gynae (am going back to my 1st born Gynae cos Dr Thong dont work on sat and she do travel for conference /seminar occasionally .
her consultant charges is $150 per visit ...not sure is that cheap or exp
btw buttercookies...your hubby is right... you really need to relax and let natural take it course...i read on net when pple get stressed or nervous body will release adrenalin, the hormone that is released by our bodies during stressful times, signals to our body that conditions are not ideal for conception.

Wah the 5th story in someway so familiar ... I suspected I got uti so was prepared to go gp get antibodic and thought since need strong antibodic better check pregnant or not again thought the check 2 weeks prior showed negative and woah the blue line appeared so quickly called dr thong clinic made appointment .. Saw her that very afternoon confirmed the pregnancy told her about the suspected uti and she did test and when result is out a day later refer me to urologist immediately cos that is one serious bacteria that is resistant to most antibiotic . But no drug suitable except a category b jab so no choice take a risk else risk my kidney .. Every day go hospital take jab .. On last jab took test and go back urologist for result and woah bacteria clear and he also soon pian scan my womb and he saw the baby heartbeat which is a relief for both him and me Lolz ... Dramatic right
Your baby is a great survivor and fighter!
PTB.. i recommend you my gynae.. Dr Bemjamin Tham @ Thomson Medical Center. Google him up. Very gentle and pro-natural gynae. Jiayous and wish you a smooth pregnancy my dear!Originally Posted by PTB7476:873997
Just like what taniari said I found that exercising and having a healthy balanced diet which resulted in healthy weight loss made it much easier for me to conceive. I have PCOS too and had tried many years unsuccessfuly to conceive. Have tried birth control pills in the beginning to regulate my menses but was not reacting well to them due to some side effects. Later tried metformin too. And though I did conceive, I had a miscarriage later. Last year I tried traditional chinese medicine as well to 'regulate' my body but only took the traditional chinese medicine for 2 months.
With regular exercise and diet though, after losing 9kg, my body started feeling much better. Hubby and I decided to try for a baby again and after two tries managed to conceive. I'm now in my 2nd trimester, due end Sep/early Oct. Instead of buying pregnancy test kits, try with ovulation strips to check when you are ovulating. My friends recommended me a website where I bought cheap but effective ovulation and pregnancy strips. If you are keen to try you can pm me.
Hi Rarity and Taniari,
Thanks for your suggestion.. hmm.. im not sure if I still need to lose some weight.. im now 49kg with 155cm height.. In fact I'm starting yoga recently as well.. cos I dont't like exercise and yoga is the only exercise that makes me feel good and willing to continue.. haha!
I had same feelings as you previously.. when I found out that I'm a PCOSer.. was told that not easy to get pregnant by first gynae.. I was like ?!!?! But not giving up yet.. Until I went to traditional chinese medicine (xin chong@ chinatown), Dr feng said the same thing to me (that I might have pcos) during my 3 visit to him.. that was the time I collapsed.. I couldn't believe that this happen to me... I love kids.. I want to be a mummy.. and I can say that this is my first priority in my life.. But then it happens.. I dont know where to get advice.. I dont't feel like telling my friends even my parents.. or maybe I could accept it till now? Haha.. but I always think baby will come at the right time.. what I can do now is to be well-prepared and welcome my baby when he/she comes.. and I think dont't keep thinking about become pregnant.. focus more on other things like your hubby, your family, your work, your friends.. so that you r not stressed by thinking when am I getting pregnant..
I changed gynae recently.. Dr Irene chua in Gleneagles.. she is giving me metformin 850mg one tab daily to regulate my ovulation first... she was mentioning that she will not give me clomid until my body is ready and also she wants me to do hysterosalpingogram (HSG), a xray test to check if any blockage at my fallopian tube.. she did mention if I can ovulate but my fallopian tube is blocked, all my eggs gonna stuck in my ovaries which may cause ovarian cancer when I get older.. but I heard this test is gonna hurt me and can be quite painful.. any of you did this test before? Also, she wants my hubby to do sperm analysis test too..
dont't give up!!! And believe that your baby will come one day later soon
thanks but i am going back to my old gynae at ACJ ... already made appointment for this sat... yeah can see the baby again ...
but just now saw my traditional chinese medicine Gynae for MS treatment she said my body weak...sigh...how to not weak when i am so old ... she kept telling me rest ... in singapore only stay at home mum can rest ...Working mom cant rest
Where did you perform the test? Maybe is the doctor's technic?? I'm so scared.. haha.. anyway, I missed the date to perform this date so I can only do this test after my menses comes next round.. (hopefully my menses will come without taking any medication again, never been missing my period that much!! Hahahah!!!)
Omg, you sure it does help??Hope it does happen to me too!!!
I had Metformin too but I didn't like it when it causes me to LS. Do you get tummy issues with Metformin?? My doctor from ACJ suggested for me to check for blockage at my fallopian tubes too if I do not conceive successfully after 3 cycles on clomid... also suggested for my hubby to do the sperm analysis test too but that would be after.
I finally got a negative OPK after 3 weeks of positive OPKs everyday due to clomid!! Sounds so silly I know to be happy for a negative OPK but that actually could mean I've just ended ovulating (dont't wanna keep my hopes too high too!) and lucky hubby and I have been working quite hard these few days haha. Currently in my 2 weeks wait before I test on the PTK.................... cross fingers!!
Yes! We shouldn't give up!! hope you will have good news soon too!
Good luck Buttercookies!!! Sending my all best wishes to you!!
I do not have tummy issue with metformin so far... but my gynae did mention about this side effect to me before.. but she said your poo poo will mostly be watery but shouldn't cause LS... im ok with metformin so far.. but I'm not sure if it is effective to me.. im still waiting my menses to come or I'm thinking to buy pregnancy kit to test again later.. aiks really waste alot of money in buying PK. And I'm buying clearblue brand !!! Every time tell myself not to buy expensive one.. maybe just get guardian brand can ady.. but worry about the accuracy so ended up with better n more expensive brand.. grrrr...
But I'm feeling my tummy is slightly bigger now.. usually I have a flat tummy.. hoping thay I'm pregnant?!?! but I guess won't see tummy that fast right?! I really think too much.. haha!!
i tell you the moment you feel metalic taste in mouth ... go see gynae check cos all other pregnancy symptom and PMS are similar only metalic taste cant fake
