    Apple, I suggest you can just go back to kk for the scan and get the report...after which, you can then decide if you wanna continue seeing the doc who put you on clomid. Save the trouble of asking around and I suppose it might be cheaper too.

    Anyway, I'm seeing a fertility doc at kk and was put on clomid too. I conceived after my first clomid cycle but baby heart beat stopped at wk 8. But will continue to see my fertility doc ...since he knows my condition best

    Certainly can visit gynae alone. I did that. My hubby has never gone with me. I only sent my hubby's army for SA and doc went through his report with me.

    I saw Dr Chew at Glen E.
    http://www.peterchewgynae.com/

    He is a very nice and fatherly person. I suggest you call and ask the nurse you wanna speak with him first. Talk to him on your concerns. If you feel comfortable, you can fix the appointment from there.

    Mummgirl you're welcome.

    I do think gynae and fertility specialist are different. Like I've seen a gynae at Kandang Kerbau Hospital during my bfp days. He will ensure my pregnancy is healthy but I won't see him if I wanna conceive. If I have issue conceiving, then best to see a fertility doc whom has different set of expertise.

    Have heard of that doc too. At this point, I'm just trusting my sinseh to help me (of course I have to help myself to be less stressful on this trying to concieve journey). I told him I've seen Dr Chew for the treatment during my first visit. He told me for my case no point seeing a fertility doc because there's no problem with my body. It's what's in my head, aka stress. By forcing my body with medical intervention, won't help me. That's what he says .

    Anyway I do see drastic improvement with this sinseh especially his acupuncture. Thumbs up.
    So for now, I'm keeping my faith just on him first.

    Mummygirl perhaps different ladies have different treatment but mine was quite intensive with dr Chew. I saw him twice weekly at some weeks. He wanted to do close monitoring on me. I do think it will be a challenge to take leave if that's your concern. For me my job doesn't allow me to be fixed at the desk so I could still get on with that.

    hi mxlo, you got to drink more water. no tea or green tea for those trying to conceive.

    right now, I'm on 2ww but I feel that I had bloated stomach. not sure whether is it AF coming soon.

    Mxlo oh these are what I've noticed from about 5 acu sessions with him so far

    1. I poo daily now! I think that's a miracle to me. I have constipation problem all my life. I could poo twice a week last time. If lucky, 3 x back then. In traditional chinese medicine, sinseh will always ask you this typical question "有没有每天大便?"。Now I can confidently say 有! Bowel movement seems important in traditional chinese medicine.

    2. I now ovulate earlier on cd14. So happy. For many years (I think since early 30s) my cycle has been 31-33 days. I o-ed usually cd18. Now my cycle is a nice 28days.

    3. For about 3-4years, my af has shortened to 2.5 to 3days only. By end of 3days, my af is stripped clean. But last cycle, my af lasted till cd7. Me cd9 now. I presume longer af means better I hope. The last time I had 7days af was probably I was 25!! So this makes me pleased.

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Hi dragontail, you mentioned your hubby got the same problem as mine. Has he done anything to improve the condition?

    what did dr chew did for you?

    The full assessment to check if you are ovulating or the follicles?

    did he suggest iui or ivf?

    Recent days I have been researching on this because of my hub condition whereby most people says conceive naturally is harder.

    I drank alot of water during that period but still like that. My lips also cracked. So after 10 days of medi (5 each for follicle and 5 for ovulation) I went back to see her. Then she said my body too heaty so gave me medi to cool my body down cos she said too heaty will cause blockage. Am now on 7dpo. Keke.

    Soursop, my hubby was on medication from DrChew. While I was with the first sinseh, he also went with me and he was on her powder medication too. With this new sinseh, so far he hasn't gone under his treatment but he should be next time, although he makes me promise I won't let the sinseh acu him. Haa.

    With dr Chew, I had this medicine that helps ovulation. Can't remember the name but it's similar to clomid but it doesn't have the negative side effect of clomid. Also had another liquid medicine that gives me much ewcm. And I was also on gonal-f which is a self injection medicine pen. Sounds like a lot of things . Unfortunately 3 cycles with him I didn't succeed and I gave up. We did talk about iui and ivf. But in the end, I decided I dont't want to go through that route. I want only natural means.

    Adding on, yes the various visits DrChew did scans on me to make sure I'm reacting well to the medicine. Especially when one is on gonal-f, you need to be monitored closely to make sure you are not over-stimulated. Unlike ivf, though gonal-f is also used, the monitoring is not so intense since the eggs will be abstracted surgically. For natural trying to concieve, you need your maturing follicles to be just one or two. And when doc thinks it's time you should pop the eggie, you will be administered HCG trigger shot. This is to ensure the egg will come out (some ladies have problem ovulating so HCG shot should help). Therefore a couple of days after the shot, you need to go for scan again because he wants to make sure your egg did come out. So you see, the visits are quite packed.

    DrChew also believes in opk and bbt.

    My goodness. I type"very" and the auto correction makes it "very". WTH.

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    RedDates, update after your gynae visit! Hopefully you'll get the green light to try again.

    mummygirl, I had two bfps but unfortunately they ended in MC.

    I dont have experience with EYS. However I'm just gonna share this that I have two girlfriends who told me EYS sinsehs suck. Ooops. Friends complained the treatment there dont work for them. But of course, if you have recommendations from your friend to EYS then go try out first one and see if you like it. I personally dont really like EYS as they are too commercialised.

    Since your AF is irregular, I certainly think traditional chinese medicine may be able to help. Are you also taking any supplements?

    I'm starting a new regime. Of course, now with a new sinseh; plus his good acupuncture. I've just stopped my CW, which I have been consuming for 1.5years now. Want a change so now I take New Obimin (this is generally suitable for pregnant phase but trying to concieve also can take) and Prenatal DHA(omega oil).
