I wanted to find out whether I'm able to concieve. So when is the best time i need to visit the gynea? My 1st day of my last mense is on 29th oct. Actually I had an appt with the gynea on Tuesday.
So was wondering is it the right & accurate time for me to visit the gynea now? Or should wait till after 3-5days after my next mentrual cycle?
Can anyone share here what test(s) is done for fertility test?
oic... actually i'm been trying on n off... did not really plan loh... and i had been married for more than 4yrs... so now started to get worried.. wanted to find out if there's any prblms inside stopping me from getting pregnant... really hope that results will be alright... & at the same time worried about the cost... what kinda test(s) i need to go through when i visit the gynae for the fertility test
It has to depend on your doc.. cause for my first visit is blood test for a lot of things i also forget.... i think 1 is for hormomes level.... another one is for ovlation ( eggs ).... cause thru blood they can see if we got eggs inside our womb... then after that i got my result saying that my hormones level is not bal....& scare that due to that i got no eggs & give me pills to eat to ovlate the egg. .. that pills gotta eat on second day of my mens.. but before i started the pills... hee.. found out that i was pregnant....
thanks....for the test....I took 2 tube of blood for 4-5 kind of test... then i think after 1 week they will call you for result & make another appt to go see doc... then on second visit doc will explain if got any problem... & count dates for you.... for my case.. cause i got hormones not bal... so i need to go take blood 2-3 times... i'm with doctor anthony siow... i'm now 23 weeks already....
( but got something i wanna say is that sometime dont 100% believe the result.... you might have surprise like me.... , just stay relax & try... dont stress yourself too much..... )
Hi mummy wannabe,
The best time to do a test at the gynae would be right after your menses. That's the best time because
(1) After the wall lining breaksdown (menses), whatever that is remaining in the womb will become clear to ultrasound, eg, fibroids and cysts. Coz some cysts will breakdown together with menses, so if after menses the cysts are still there, most prob you'd require a keyhole surgery to remove them.
(2) Right after menses is also good because you can start testing for your ovulation and get back to the gynae right after instead of waiting another month before starting. Your gynae will be able to examine you immediately with a vaginal probe as well to check your tubes and ovaries.
I just went for my fertity tests in Kandang Kerbau Hospital in September so might be able to help you.
I went to Polyclinic to ask for referral. Very fast. Went on Thursday, got appointment to KK on Monday .
1st blood test, 2 days from start of menses, then a scan for the fallopian tube on the 10th or 11th day from start of menses, then another blood test on 20 or 21st day from start of menses and finally an ultrascan somewhere in between, based on appointment. No specific day.
If your hubby testing also, he will be fixed an appointment, have to conserve for 3 or 4 days then give his sperm for checking.
I remember paying after each test so cannot really remember how much I paid but after the subsidy, think less than 400 in all. Not expensive after so many tests.
so will be it still okay if i visit my gynea on the 13th day after my last mense? my appt surpose to be tis afternoon. do you have good impression with Kandang Kerbau Hospital svc? cos i said few of my collys n frends that the svc there.. is not that good.. i not sure about it, just heard here n there.
It is okay to go on the 13th day from the start of your menses. They will probably arrange to calculate from the next menses. Give you a few forms then tell you to come for the blood test on the 2nd or 3rd day. No need appointment.
As for the tube tests, they will tell you to call them for appointment on your first day then they will arrange to hit within the time frame.
I am okay with the service cos I not fussy. I just want a check that is affordable.
yaa... i just back from gynae. had done the ultrasound & things are fine inside. no sign of blockage.. nor any cysts n my gynae had found out that one of my ovary start to fertile.. so ask me n husband to try xtra hard these few days. i was also been given clomiphene citrate to be taken on the day 2 to day 6 in my next cycle. the dosages can last me through 3 cycles.
my gynae said he is happy with my ultrasound result as no sign of any serious prblm. at that time, i was so relieved to hear n see the 'x-ray' printout. but said that my uterus is abit 'out of place' ... not in the centre. but was told it's fine. for me, no blood test is needed.
so i'm hoping that i able to "rec'd" good news soon bah... before i even start to take the clomiphene pills.
Hi mummy wanna be,
How was the gynae visit yesterday? Just saw your post. 13th day is nice. Your gynae would be able to see if your ovaries are preparing to ovulate like hapimint.
Hi mummy wanna be, jia you lei... haha... I am still not trying yet though I really hope to.... Still recovering from a back injury and pending my hubby specialist appointment....
sigh... I really hope to have a baby next year too... haha....
Btw, not centre is not an issue at all... Jia you!! My sis has inverted womb also got 3 boys now... so dont worry...
i felt so relieved (a big stone suddenly dropped off my heart) when i walked out of the clinic... the gynae had an ultrasound scan on my abdominal area n realised that my left side ovary is producing eggs now. so ask me n husband to try xtra hard this few days. I'm also been given clomiphene citrate to be take on my next cycle during day 2 to day 6. 3 cycles supply. he told me that my uterus is abit 'out-of-place' but said it's not serious prblm. Also, been told that he did not see any sign of blockage nor cysts.. he said he's happy to see the result. when he's doing the pap smear on me, he also realised there's 'browish 'substance' & happily told me 'your ovary is wkg hard now, so you & husband must do your parts too..' oh yah, i did my breast examine too.
my gynae told me to give myself 6 cycles of trying, if after that still no news then my husband needs to do the sperms count test & he see what he able to do after that. sigh! so hope that i able to rec'd good news next month or so loh... if not, need to take the clomiphene citrate liew....
Anyway... these 2 days i can feel my abdominal area abit cramp & feel that sumhw 'sumthing' moving around... hahahaha~ isit.. the eggs meet sperms????
lastly, thanks you guys for all your concern
