hi all lovely ladies! I'm new here and I'm new in Singapore as well. Just wanna share my experience in consulting doctors.
I have been living in Singapore 1.5 year, originally from HK. I had irregular menses issue since my first menses came. My menses often long and come 2 times a month. I have consulted more than 3 doctors in HK couldn't find the reason why cause me that and most of the doctors just gave me hormones pill to control menses instead of finding the cause.

Anyway, after I moved to Singapore, I looked for fertility specialist online and I found a doctor from TMC. I have been consulted him more than a year. He suggested me start from taking ovulation pills , done all the blood test, think my
Prolactin level is too high and prescribe me the pill for half year. After trying a year without good news, my hubby sperm are fine, I did ovulate, I asked doctor few times what cause my period so irregular and difficult to bingo, should I do the HSG test for the next step or IVF as I don't want to waste my time even I'm only at early 30.

Then he arranged me to do HSG, the report said my tubes are fine but may have endometriosis. So the doctor did the ultrasound and think it was only a temporary one as he did so many ultrasound for me before never found my womb any problem. I was about to do the IVF by him......Then lucky I have an idea slipped in my mind, think I should consult one more doctor .....to be continued

my client introduced me another doctor who did IVF successfully for her. She referral her doctor to me. This doctor also from TMC, he reviewed my health report and history, did a few checks and told me my prolactin level wasn't high enough that need to take hormone pill to control. Besides, he suspected me have endometriosis and that probably is the reason why I have irregular period and couldn't get pregnant. I was shocked as the previous doctor never suspected it and wasted me whole year and a lot of money. So I have arranged a keyhole surgery and turns out the 2nd doctor was right that I have endometriosis and it was a quite deep one. I hope solving this problem would make pregnant easier but at least after 2 years visiting different doctors, someone finally told me what's wrong in my body.

So if you have tried some steps with your doctor and decide to do IVF, no harm to visit 1 more doctor to see if there's another opinion.

Oh, darling. I really understand you. I also have irregular menstruation all my life. When I was a teenager, my gynaecologist also prescribed me hormones, it was awful. All my skin was in acne, but menstruation haven't still been regularly. Until 20 years, when I was doing check up and the cardiologist during the EKG said that I have cardiac abnormality and this is what can affect the reproductive system. I was shocked, but it seemed me so interesting and I decided to become an an EKG Technician, to help such people as I. exploremedicalcareers.com helped to realize my dream.
