Hehe I keep reusing the urine container then rinse off cos I find buying and throwing the plastic cup to be very Eco-unfriendly
the urine specimen just need a bit, as long doesn't exceed the control line then sufficient to dip for 5 second will do.
Ok thks. Usually need to test in the am or anytime of the day?
Lynn, have you check your thyroid levels?
Yes I did a full hormones test. All is ok except my prolactin exceeded normal range. My scan showed polycystic ovaries..
Agree with soursop...
Mine was reuse container too...if not, need a lotsa container ..
Was thinking if cw cant work, do you all think i should switch traditional chinese medicine or go for some test to ensure i m good n normal to go, then go tiao my body??

I read somewhere that best timing to test is 10am-10pm... dont know how true.. for me, normally i test at 7pm..during shower..haha
Today is my CD33 stomach having cramp n bloatness since yesterday. is it a sign menses coming? but normally my menses very very irregular one..... feeling so uncomfortable
Littlehamster, when you did acupunture with Dr Wu, did she suggest you to do or you request it yrself?? How come you only did one time throughout the 6 mths with her??
I feel like asking her to do for me but she did not want when I first consulted her.. I feel I need to do acupunture in order to trigger my menses to come regularly, if not medicine is really slow and Im getting rather impatient now..
If she still refuse to do for me, I might want to switch to Dr Su the next cycle..
Woo hoo finally see 2 dark lines on opk and ewcm
Time to work hard!!!
Jia you, soursop!!
jia you soursop!! hope to hear good news from you!!
Jia you soursop!! Time to BD like there is no tomorrow!!
Lynn, opk cheapie to be peed on later pee. Not fmu. Later pee as in perhaps your 2nd or 3rd pee of the day onwards. Anytime after that is ok. But if you use the expensive clear blue digital opk, use fmu.
Dr wu forte is not acupuncture. That's what I've observed. If you want acupuncture, I would feel you can switch sinseh.
Soursop I dont't want to see you here for next few nights
This cycle no opk no bbt for us. Since I always o around the same day, just whack those days . dont't think so much . If nothing good comes out of it, it's probably the last cycle 1, 2 cycles we are going natural before embarking on medical intervention.
I'm thinking if I should switch to Dr Su and let her hubby do acupuncture for me.. My hubby said better to complete a few cycles before changing Dr but Im getting a bit impatient partly because she did not explain much on my condition. Sometimes im wondering why need to pay consult fees yet no ans frm her?? Actually I find her fees is comparable to eu yan sang charges except no gst only. Btw, do you really think acupuncture can do a good job in regulating menses??
Hmmmm I think dont't need to wait few cycles to switch sinseh if that's your intention. I mean Dr wu did help me conceived so I dont't doubt her medicine. But different stuff work differently for us....I have nothing against dr wu but if you are not comfy with her then dont't waste time there already. Start afresh at another place. Ok true enough traditional chinese medicine needs months in fact to see result. But if you have so much doubt in her (I mean that's what I read here !), then that ain't a good start.
Acupuncture regularly works quite alright for me so far (since nov13). I have regular cycles in the first place so I guess I can't comment much. Maybe dr su can help answer that?
Btw why did you switch from Dr su to Dr wu?
Yup, I actually wish to hear what Dr Su can share regarding my high prolactin level, as I kw this is the main cause of my absence of menses sometimes. Previously I stopped after a couple of mths due to my busy work schedule as well as her queue was quite long. I feel more comfortable with Dr Su as she will answer to all my queries patiently. I couldn't comment much about Dr Wu yet since i just tried the 2nd wk of her medicine but I just got a feeling she was very rushy despite that the je clinic wasn't many patient there every wkends. But she did mention she had seen some patients 6mths menses did not come! She said mine was not that serious actually.. coz my prob is not only pcos but also high in prolactin and I assume she can read my blood test report..she told me I can continue to take my gynae medicine if I want, doesn't crash with her medicine. I wish to take but am afraid got side effects like nausea which i read up on internet.But the thought of just relying of traditional chinese medicine med would probably need a much longer time to solve my prob, thats why Im thinking why not take both at the same time, one to lower prolactin n the other to regulate menses ??( just my thought but im not sure if it works or will backfire) Just like taking contraceptive pills to regulate menses n traditional chinese medicine med would definitely crashed rgt?
I googled n realised acupuncture works better for menses prob. Thats why I wish to try but unfortunately Dr Su doesn't do acupuncture n need to separate queue for her hubby to do acupuncture, too time consuming. Thats also a reason why I switched to Dr Wu since she does acupuncture. I think I am a super hopeless patient who needs acupuncture to work well, something more aggressive than just medicine alone.
mummygirl, oh haha seems that we are in the same situation.. I got partner now! Mine is usually long cycles. The longest I hit is 58days! Think maybe you should go for a scan to find out the causes. Now i got to wait patiently for my af to come..actually quite stressful to wait as it makes me more anxious if it keeps delaying.

Which CD are you now? Maybe you hit jackpot?? Hugzz
For me still early... CD23 only...
Lynn: from Dr google, Prolactin Level Test: Purpose, Procedure & Results scared there is some underlying problems/diseases who may cause no hit jackpot.. for me, dr wu say i hormone imbalance, my progesterone i feel is low but Kandang Kerbau Hospital doc say is ok... but my bbt looks low... dr wu say got improve, but to me like not much diff haha
dr wu suggest to do acupuncture once, then ask me go on wed, where there is lesser ppl, then when i went there, she surprise to see me and i told her what she want to do then she orhhh... i thought she will jot down in her paper or what.. she mark on my calendar one .. so happen there is another lady doing acupuncture on same day as me, then i overheard dr wu ask her what day she going to clinic or something, so i guess the lady maybe going iui or ivf
acupuncture need to do regularly as effects are temporary and to start the body to heal itself naturally, maybe dr wu cant afford the time to do acupuncture for all patients?
actually i want to do acupuncture cos i feel the effects and heal faster than oral herbs.. after cny no news maybe i will go Dragontail's traditional chinese medicine? just a thought.. and also cos dragontail has positive feedback then maybe can try out
my bbt chart here: http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/3d1e5e
by the way, i saw overseas women taking this chasteberry for imbalances and irregularity. i just started taking, bought mine from GNC... dr google says takes 3mths to effect, we will see how it goes...

If indeed I'm going for ivf, will still go for acu. I think I'm addicted. Ha.
