    Hormonal Profiles are blood test. I did once long ago. It has to be done during the 2nd/3rd day of menses. If your blood tested you have hormone imbalances, gynae should be able to supplement you with hormonal drugs.

    wow somany pages to catch up!
    *hugs* dragontail - try again! and wow you are really artistic!so nice! can draw and sell the paintings!

    *hugs* audiencemama - take more tonics and rest well this month before trying again.

    Gabrielle - if you are okay to go with IUI/IVF- recommend you to try when young. Easier to get successful. I did not regret doing IUI as I got successful 1st time. But now after 30yr old...i tried for 2nd one with IUI - failed coz the eggs didnt grow well and finally when eggs grow, not successful coz maybe hubby soldier too little. So age does make a diff to me.

    welcome sunnydale- all the best! try again tonight!

    errm all the talks about boobs- you all sounds very slim ! Want bigger one, eat more.hahahaha...i'm on the plump side and thus boops also plump.hahaha.

    oh my so much to catch up on.

    AudienceMama, take care k ?? I feel so sad after reading stories like this and just wish your body gears up again quickly for a sticky beanie.

    I also read about the cd21 or 7dpo progesterone testing. if I'm not preggie this month I'm taking appointment at the docs to check my prog levels. Actually I started taking maca this cycle and my temps are higher and more stable. but I still dont't know if its enough or not.
    Not enough progesterone wont allow successful implantation and sustainable pregnancy

    Dragontail, do you mind sharing your charts ?

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    yes.. hormones test are just drawing blood.. think on 2nd or 3rd day of cycle, and depending on your menses cycle, for example if you are a 29 they may ask you go back for another test on about day 10 or smth (near ovulation time). this is what I remember cox I done mine for more than a year.. (but I feel western doctor - at least for the one I see at nuh) they are like dont really care . just say oh your results ok, passable, if one more yr dont have then come back. faint! and I use the same report to go my traditional chinese medicine and my traditional chinese medicine said my hormones is bad. therefore, I would suggest to go for test (subsidies so cheaper), take the results back, consult traditional chinese medicine and Gynae. :/

    Hi! Now I remember.. No wonder my gynae said to visit him during first 3 days of my menses (if not successful) cuz he said he wanted to analyze the flow and then he also said can do other tests. So maybe that is to measure the hormones?

    Dragontail- I think you should do a check with your gynae as such? I mean again, do a check up to see everything is good. Best not to self medicate I feel. Especially when it's to do with hormones, I feel best to leave to the experts. You wouldn't know if you're doing more harm than good.

    We are trying to concieve-ing!

    I have a question - would be nice to get your feedback?

    I called up the clinic Natalie recommended SSR - so yes they are able to do a detailed genetic scan which involves the heart, brain, facial features. And apparently it is very detailed and can tell if there is any anomaly. My colleague used this service as her Oscar results weren't good. The lady on the phone said I could do it if I want to.

    http://www.ssr.com.sg/education.htm#2

    I am wondering if I should go for this scan. Just to get peace of mind that all is ok. It costs sgd300. My hubby thinks I am crazy.

    Would you do if you were me?

    Hi. My Oscar results came back low risk 1:2000. But well, I am afraid of false negatives. And it is still 1 out of 2000

    Ok now I am worrying I know.... So that's why I am wondering if I should go for the genetic scan....

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Thanks everyone

    Littlej, if your oscar results are good, there's no need for this scan. Obviously, there are a whole lot more scans that are "good to have", you can never complete all the scans. As long as the "must have" scan results are good, you should put your mind at ease. Exposing your little one to too much unnecessary radiation, no matter how tiny the radiation amount is, is not going to be good for your bean. You have an FA scan coming up too right? I think the standard scans that we need to do are sufficient. No point going overboard with scans too...

    Furthermore, I believe if your gynae thinks you have no problem, he/she wouldn't recommend you to go for extra scans too..

    littlej
    i agree with TVH.
    i also studied before in school.
    although sometimes we need to take scans but the radiation on us is actually not good.


    btw congrats to you littlej for the good news
