    Hi all, my wife and I started to try for baby since last Oct. I am 34 and she is 31 this year. We started to visit Dr Su since this Jan. Please advise when we should visit a gynae if we are still unsuccessful. Thanks.

    Actually is up to you one. Some couples prefer to try naturally first then consult doctor after one year no success. Since you just started Dr su Jan, did she mention anything about you or your wife? You might wanna give see her for at least 6 months first. A lot of ladies here whom see Dr su manage to conceive in less than 6 cycles.

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    I never thought I would be saying this but i got my BFP today! I am still in shock as it is my first IVF cycle. I failed 2 IUI cycles last year which was also mentioned in my earlier posts. So girls, do not give up! There is hope. What helps me through this journey is faith and lots of praying. I believe that God has a plan for all of us.

    @thefifis i understand how you feel. Friends and even family members who got married much after me have 1 to 2 kids. I'm so pressured by my family members that this CNY I felt so depressed and stressed I didn't want to go bai nian.

    Remember, perseverance is key. Baby dust to all!

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    @prayinghard, thanks for the support! all the best for your number 2.

    @summervine, congratulations! Enjoy your pregnancy journey! Anyways, true that. Sometimes people make it harder for us. the questions and statements they make can really be a mood dampener. My hubs and I have dabbled with the thoughts of going for IUI or even IVF. We are putting those on hold and still trying to conceive naturally probably till mid of this year due to work obligations. I have great respect for women who went through IUI and IVF. Read about these procedures and they are indeed very mentally, emotionally and physically challenging. Kind of having mixed emotions - scared and anxious.

    @summervive, congratulations to you so happy to hear that! Hope everyone received your babydust and have good news soon.

    Care to share where did you do your IVF?

    Anyone know if you had IUI at private clinic and thereafter switch to Kandang Kerbau Hospital for IVF, would they allow you to do IVF with subsidy or there's a need to repeat the IUI procedure again? I've read somewhere, in order to have the IVF subsidy IUI is compulsory to do first.

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    @thefifis. I'm not sure for you, but I feel more assured if I have a plan. Hubby and I have tried to conceive naturally since early 2014 but no success and I felt like we were lost without any direction and the stress trying to "hit the target" every month has taken a toll on me. (And hubby cos he has to endure my crying). Yes, and the endless questions doubled the stress for me. Family members (Brother in law and cousins) who got married after me conceived within months of their wedding which made matters worse for me even though I am happy for them. IUI/IVF is mentally and emotionally draining. I dont't find it physically painful, probably just slight discomfort.. it's just a process to follow through. It's good that you have a plan to try naturally until end of the year. Wishing you lots of luck!

    @babysparkling.. I did it at Thomson, private clinic. I dont't think it's compulsory to do IUI first. You should be able to go straight to IVF. Many people have done that.

    How much did you pay? Any reasons that you would rather choose Thomson first and forego the subsidies than go to KK or NUH? Just asking for my own research.

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Hi All,

    me and my hub has been trying to concieve but till now no results.
    we been trying since Dec 2015 but wasnt very active tho. usually about once a week...
    for the past two weeks, we been more active and does it every two three days...

    but hubby said is very tiring... myself also find it tiring and more like a chore.
    was also thinking if we dont try so freq, but with my irregular menses, it will be even more difficult to conceive...
    just so confused and stress...! why is it so difficult to conceive!!


    ytd night was feeling emo and cried for being a failure, that im not able to have baby as easy as other women.
    (hubby had a kid from previous marriage, and it didnt seems as difficult as it has been with me.)



    i have started to drink DOM as i heard its good for women who want to conceive and even regulate menses (and with regular menses, it will be easier to conceive, i assume?)
    i am also contemplating if i should go to see chinese traditional chinese medicine to tiao my body and faster get BFP.


    im feeling abit of PMS ( easily fustrated and emotional...)... now shld be resting right, since its not possible to get preg now.?

After giving birth, IVF again, again successful, and their 2nd child is going to be born soon. I think the man told me they are slightly older (he did not elaborate so maybe his sperm has low motility which then only IVF can work). They used the famous Dr Tan lucky Hao of KK.

    It depends on many factors. How old are you?

    I was diagnosed with cyst on both ovaries and my specialist in Kandang Kerbau Hospital and now private specialist in Mt E both did not bring up any surgery to remove the cysts. Where did you do your consultations and surgery? I personally did not go for IVF as my first course of action, and am on pills+injections now with my fertility specialist and he has been most patient, informative and I feel secure in his care. He is so experienced due to his long years of doing this. He is almost 60 and in his bio he pioneered the laproscopy technique in Singapore. I'm 35. My hubby's sperm is tested above average, and I do ovulate a few eggs every month on the fertility drugs prescribed (clomid, letrozole, gonal F injections). Dr Lim (my doc) told me that the pills+jabs cycle I do is a 15% success rate a month, compared to IVF which is 20%. My husband said we should do this regime instead, because then we can do it over 6 menstrual cycles and its more cost effective. 15% x 6 = 90%

    As for traditional chinese medicine, my fertility specialist Dr Lim told me to avoid. Also i think traditional chinese medicine takes a long time to work, so if you redirect your resources (time) to it its a waste of precious years. I dont't know how old you are. But if you are above 38 I would advise you to go direct to IVF. If you are a Singaporean, it is subsidized in public hospitals, plus you can use Medisave in Public hospital IVF. Among the 3 public hospitals doing IVF, KK has the highest success rate. For citizens if you do IVF in public hospital I heard that after using Medisave you pay less than $1k cash each time.
    Hi there, thanks for your reply. I somehow missed this. So since my last post, this was what happened. I have seen a gynae, was on one cycle of medication to make me ovulate - took bloody test, was told the count is low, gotta go for IVF.

    Seek second opinion with Dr SF Loh at TFC, was one another cycle of medication, this time is Metfomin and Clomid. Likewise, did not ovulate. At the same time, husband did the sperm analysis and the results were low. Dr SF Loh suggested IVF.

    I am scheduled to see the famous traditional chinese medicine Dr Tan Siew Buoy in August. I have another review with Dr SF Loh, mainly is to see my husband's blood test results and his sperm analysis after taking medication.

    So now it seems like IVF is the only option and i have several queries

    1) I was told by Dr Loh SF that if i were to go to Kandang Kerbau Hospital for IVF (where i can enjoy subsidy) i will be rejected because i am overweight. I need to lose weight and be in the normal weight. The problem is, it is difficult to lose weight with PCOS. If i go the IVF with him, i dont get subsidy =X

    2) Should i still proceed with my traditional chinese medicine treatment even if i am considering going for IVF?

    3) I have an appt with Dr Sadhana (Kandang Kerbau Hospital just assigned her to me), is she good? Or should i make appt with Dr Tan HH? I heard he is super busy and even with appointment i have to wait up to 4hours sometimes?

    Anyone with PCOS, who is overweight, has successfully done IVF at Kandang Kerbau Hospital? I am feeling quite demoralised and lousy Husband really want kids and he was so affected when he found out that his sperm analysis report wasnt great as well.

    hihi.

    Just will like to share that body fats can also affect your fertility chances. Please do consider about this as well. Also, it doesn't means that slim people will automatically have good levels of body fats. Do PM me if you wish to find out more and also get a free body fat analysis or find out more about what supplements can help to increase your fertility chances.

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Ever since i started taking Blackmores conceive well gold a few months ago, i had been clocking a 27-day cycle; previously it ranged from 25 - 30 days with majority between 26 to 28 days. Last month, just before af was due in 2 days' time (based on the 27-day cycle), i went back to the traditional chinese medicine for a check (after 2 months of medication). He said that fertilization had occurred and there was a chance that i would get pregnant that cycle. However, af came but was 3 days late (all hopes dashed!). I went back to the traditional chinese medicine and he said that while fertilization took place, the embryo did not form properly. He said that he is confident that I could and would get pregnant - but why am I still not? Am not sure who to doubt now, myself, dear husband or traditional chinese medicine? This is so confusing.
