    We are trying to concieve-ing!

    SnowWhite.. I can imagine how you feel when your gynea told you.. I held back my tears when I was told I ve a blocked tube and with hub's less than satisfactory troops, even iui is out for us. Was advised to go for IVF straight then but I refused then. Now Im still waiting for miracle to happen so dont't give up on ourselves yea..

    Hi Nataliengbh like you I ve been consulting Dr Su since last Aug.. Since you have conceived before, I think you can focus on healing your womb so that you can hold the pregnancy.. Jia you!

    Quincy the brown thing is norm right? My sinseh was still telling me cannot have any PMS symptoms.. Very tough challenge not to feel any cramps or ache man..

    Now I'm quite certain I want to be a man in my next life.. Why must women go through all these heartaches and body aches!!!

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    actually regarding a man's troops...you shouldn't be too worried because they renew cells every 72 days. My gynae told me as long as he is not of zero sperm count (which is very rare), there is nothing to worry about. This can be helped by taking supplements. Sometimes, SA is not very accurate because they are forced to perform under pressure, thus giving less than satisfactory results.

    there are also women who managed to conceive with just one functioning tube...so dont't give up! all is not lost!!

    @superwoman
    cannot have pms? my sinseh check my pms symptoms for all the days i visited him. he ask me do you have cravings, do you have mood swings bla bla. then he just nods his head.

    @TVH

    We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Hello everyone!

    I have been so busy today! So I will reply all at one go (prepare for a long read).

    Pms - I get irritable, moody, legs achy, bloatedness. I go for morning walks for about 20min listening to my iPod and think nothing and breathe in morning fresh air. When i breathe i pinch one nostril and breathe in from the other, then i pinch the other nostril and breathe out then alternate. i repeat this about 10times. i feel it helps to clear my nasal pathways and somehow feel better. if no time to walk or if it is raining - i will open the windows and do the breathing exercise. At night, I do a little bit of yoga meditation - sit with knees facing out and feet joined together (this is supposedly a fertility pose) and I will just take deep breathes in and out for about 2min. Then I will lie down (with legs in same position) and put my palms on tummy and close my eyes and rest for about 3min. I find these helped to alleviate pms. Oh and for cramps I pop panadol.

    @littlehamster - spotting? Go see doc please. Work will always be there, office can survive without you. Health is of utmost importance and you only have one health (but can have many jobs).

    @snow white - would you like to seek a second opinion? That is what I would do if I were you. What's the worse that could happen? Yes spend more $$$ but at least you can get to hear of an alternative solution or perhaps even a different diagnosis?? You might also consider seeing a fertility specialist as your second opinion. i myself went to consult a second opinion gynae for trying to concieve as my original gynae kept advocating IUI. I will pm you my gynae details.

    Ya I agree bd can be quite tiresome with timing. And I agree being a woman is not easy I had to entice dear to bd with me sometimes. But I guess i chose to take the positive mindset. If he sian and I sian then bd will be doubly sian. But if I think positive at least my positivity flows to my dear hahah I will think that bd helps to lose weight - it has been scientifically proven that you lose many calories bd-ing - that is, you can't lie there like a dead doll ! I will also think that well, at least there is the spark! And better actively bd now otherwise when got kid dont know if can be so active

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    the part i hate most about pms is the moodswing part.
    not only do my moods really change fast, i also tend to worry alot.
    worry about things like if i am pregnant, will there be anyone who will affect my pregnancy? (it's silly but long story.)
    or like will i be a good parent? on usual days i can just shrug off my worries. but on pms days i stop thinking for a while and the stress comes back again.
    my gf tells me that this should be 1 of the reason why i cant conceive. so i am looking for something to rid off my worries my temperaments.
    i think i am going to get EPO and also saw online that ginger tea helps relieve moods. so i am gonna try these 2.
    stuborn n naggy ^^ me the st maria online

    Dr Su also mentioned that if we can build our body until we dont't even felt any pms symptoms will be best.
    I do noticed that after taking traditional chinese medicine I got less af cramp and backaches

    Snow White

    There is one girl in another mother hood forum... she also got PCOS
    but she seek help from gynae and she managed to conceive naturally after few months...
    read that the gynae give her medicine and injection.... something like that
    now her baby is EDD Aug 2013
    dont't give up hope.
    I read that she visited Dr Henry Cheng from Bishan (if you search, you will be able to find her talking about her experience)

    And Victoria Beckham also managed to conceive naturally even with PCOS

    Dragontail

    I have a friend who doesn't have any PMS at all, after she visited a Sinseh.... she used to have since young.... and was quite serious.
    but after she visited one about nearly 10 years back.... no more PMS.
    but too bad she is not married, so i cannot judge whether PMS will affect fertility at all.

    I always thought its normal to have PMS .. Like the usual pimple popping, feeling moody etc.. As long its not very bad menstrual cramps that got to stay in bed should be quite normal.. I only heard old folks tales that if your menses are not regular or always painful, after childbirth it will be better.. Other that that, i didnt know it will affect fertility.. Now knowing so much, all the more i feel that the government can do more to help in the birth rates!

    Littlej, oh no,is it taka not selling the ginger tea anymore? Did you happen to ask the staff there?

    I usually get mood swings (my poor hubby is the recipient of this ) and some crampings. When younger, they came quite strong. Mid 30s onwards, they subsided a lot already. Just a little chocolate days before AF comes and I'm ok like any other days.

    I saw ginger tea in a shop selling taiwan products which is in front of the cold storage (cashier area) last week. Not sure whether it is the same shop.
