    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Hi gals, so sorry to interrupt here.. can anyone recommend me a good, reassuring, caring and experience female gynae to me? I had bad experience with previous gynae before so hopefully can have a female gynae who is not too stern. Thanks in advance!

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Hi gals, can anyone share with me if doing acupuncture together with traditional chinese medicine medication will help in regulating menses? If taking traditional chinese medicine medicine alone doesn't help much?? My menses is not regular and this month only brownish blood.

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Hi dreamycoco, thks for yr recommendations. Will this gynae always order expensive test for just a normal checkup for womb to see causes of irregularity of menses? I have low threshold of pain... she is skilful rgt?

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Can anyone tell me what do I expect if I were to consult a gynae to find out the causes of my irregular menses.. if I need to take any hormones pills or contraceptive pills etc.. what test is usually done by a gynae? I do not wish to do vaginal scan, abdominal scan is still the same rgt? I want to seek traditional chinese medicine help but I also wish to check if there is any prob to my ovaries that lead to this prob. But I am fear of the side effects if the gynae is to give me hormones pills to take for long term..

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Crystalpink, i know you have a lot of questions running in your head now… the best is let the gynae checks on you and he/she will be at the best position to share what you might need (further tests/medication/etc). For me, although I have regular mense and also ovulate regularly, it was suspected I have fibroids and thus I was sent to another clinic to do further detailed scan. Everyone is different.

    The only way to check for any thorough womb issue is by transvaginal. Not adominal scan.

    I feel if you have concerns on fertility, just go straight to a recommended gynae/fertility specialist. Nike motto : JUST DO IT. Fear will only hold back precious time.

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Hi dragontail, thks for yr advise. Yes, Im quite lost now n fear that I may menopause soon if I still dont't ovulate regularly although Im still far away from menopausal age. I do heard some women menopause at young age due to poor health etc.. I had consulted Dr Su last yr but have stopped for just a couple of mths. The medicine is heaty n I gave up coz it is still not very regular n blood flow is little. Im petite maybe that's the reason blood flow also not much.. My womb is too cold n lack of blood n "Qi". Shall I continue to seek traditional chinese medicine n do acupuncture to warm my womb or shall I seek gynae help to take medicine like "clomid" to help me ovulate? My problem is I cannot ovulate as DR Su told me before if my blood flow is not red n too little, then I am not ovulating. Last 2 mths my menses came within 34days ( red blood ) , this month only brownish blood for 3days which means no ovulation at all.

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    I had done abdominal scan 4 yrs ago, and my uterus lining is thin so everythg is fine. Hormones blood test also normal that time. I think my estrogen level is low that's why irregular menses. Dr only prescribed me hormones pills( contraceptive pills) for short period, thereafter my menses came. I scared of side effects like breast cancer so I did not continue taking the medicine. Now im lost, I feel seeking gynae will see immediate results if need to take medicine to help in ovulation.. but traditional chinese medicine will be slow. Now Im stuck if I should try western medicine to boost up my estrogen level..

    Crystalpink, I understand your anxiety. But no way you're going to have menopause earlier than me because I am 41

    If I were you, go see an alternative help. See a fertility specialist and not just a gynae. Most of the time, western and chinese medicine work hand in hand. I mean I would think not having red blood during af is no doubt a concern....get a 2nd opinion. At least you are fair to yourself and hear what a 2nd help can offer. Then you decide if you wanna see dr su again.

    Clomid is not for everyone too. I think will be appropriate one dont jump into conclusion what medical help suits. Let the professional step in.

    Crystalpink these are just my personal thoughts . Afterall I have not't got bfp. For past 1year plus, I tried traditional chinese medicine and fertilty specialist. Mc twice though. I am still trying though I have stopped traditional chinese medicine nor going to a doc.

    How old are you may I know?

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Paiseh what is bfp?? Btw you have facebook?? maybe we can chat there? What is the diff between fertility specialist and gynae ? But im not intending to conceive so you think I should consult a fertility specialist? sigh.. I always heard people said taking pills will lead to breast cancer and I have an elderly who already menopause took pills from gynae n later she got breast lump, luckily is benign..

    Oh hehee thought all ladies are in this thread for trying to concieve. In this case you can see a gynae perhaps. Er...if you dont want to conceive than does it matter if you ovulate? Sorry I might have missed out something.

    Bfp = preggie had it twice but they were not viable.

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Oh if one does not ovulate regularly, then slowly may lead to early signs of menopause as what I heard from gynae. Will also age faster n high chance of hving heart disease etc. Lastime I also dont't bother if my menses ever come or not, but ever since I heard gynae said that he ever met patients who menopause at 30 plus! some at 45. He said its not normal at all..

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Btw, dragontail, does acupuncture really helps in menses to come regularly? previously you did yr acupuncture for 2 times per wk or 1 time per wk? I tried before.. but diff traditional chinese medicine dr did differently for acupuncture. Did your traditional chinese medicine dr put one needle at yr womb or more? Mine only one needle on the lower abdomen n heat up..

    My acupuncture was purely for ovulation. I had at least a dozen of needles. One on the crown, few on both arms, legs, and tummy. Not sure if it helped...I dont have ovulation problem in the first place. My sinseh said the treatment is for stronger/healthier ovulation.

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Ya.. n I think nowadays more n more women menopause early.. no good for the bones also.. that is the disadvantage of being a woman. My mum feels its better to seek traditional chinese medicine help rather than taking western medicine at young age to avoid side effects. I also think so.. sigh.. If try western medicine, also need to try diff types of medicine to see which is suitable.. I scared of freckles which is common in western medicine. dont't think the gynae will allow me to try both at the same time.. Wah! Then your mum must be very healthy! She got take lots of traditional chinese medicine medicine to "tiao" her body ? usually menopausal age is between 50 to 55.

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    I see. That time I did my acupuncture was because I got insomnia n gastric bloated. So my sinseh also put 10 over needles on my body. Hands, legs, head, gastric n only one on lower abdomen. I guess he couldn't did so many needles at the same time to cure so many prob so only one needle for the womb. Maybe nextime I will ask him to forcuse on ovulating issues. Do you feel yr tummy very hot after the treatmt? Previously he forcused on my gastric n after the treatment, my upper tummy was super hot!!
