Thread: So depressed...

    Leesa, I'll add my invitation to come and join us in the 6+ months buddy thread. They are such wonderful, wonderful women there, and we do know exactly how you feel. The support that we have given each other is sometimes the only thing that helps keep me sane!

    My situation is a little bit different to most... my TTC journey has been very rocky, even though it's only been 12 months long. I can honestly say that seeking help sooner rather than later is the way to go.

    Hi Leesa,

    Just wanted to pop my head in to say that you are definitely not on your own. This forum has helped me in so many ways and hope it will help you in listening to others stories and sharing yours.

    Good luck.

    hi leesa,

    our ivf doctor said for my DH to start taking: 1 blackmores bio magnesium a day and 2 blackmores bio zinc a day. magnesium is for muscular problems & cramps and zinc is for healthy skin and wound healing (thats what the bottle says anyway). but for the life of me i cannot remember why! sorry

    i was prescribed my clomid from the ivf doctor (even though i never had to take it), i was to take 1/2 a tablet from day 2 - 6 of my cycle a really low dose. i think clomid regulates the egg release.

    have you thought about going to see a fertility specialist? its not as scary as it sounds.

    take care narelle

    Hi leesa,

    I don't really have a story to share with you, but i wanted to add my invite to the 6 + mth budddy group. They are really friendly and very welcoming. I've just joined myself as I've been TTC for 8 mths now, so i know first hand how great the ladies in there are.

    I was a bit cheeky, I went to my Dr and burst into tears on the poor woman and she gave me a referral to a FS. I'm very nervous about going because I have only been TTC for 8 mths, but I feel better for making the appt. I feel like its something i need to do as I have a friend who has been TTC for over 2 yrs now and she has only just sought help and has found out that she needs to go the IVF rout. I think i would like to know now if there is something wrong and resolve it if possible!

    I hope that you get a BFP really soon!

    Thanks Marydean - any contact like that would be fantastic!

    Thank you for the invite ladies - I will go and take a look very soon....

    Is there a directory of fertility specialists (I'm in Adelaide) - or is it something that you don't really have a say in and the GP refers you to the 'first cab off the rank?'

    Leesa, I'm sure there would be a directory of fertility specialists for Adelaide - you would just need to google a bit. I found a list of IVF clinics for Sydney, and then at the website for each clinic there was info on each of the doctors. Also, ask around (even if just on here) - find out what other people think of the different specialists to try and work out which one is for you.

    You certainly do have choice of which specialist you go to - although your GP may have one that they know of that they would like to refer you to, you can always say no and choose one yourself and just get them to write the referral.

    Also, don't be frightened of seeing a FS that is attached to an IVF clinic. It doesn't mean you must do IVF, it's just that those doctors know the area well... I learned the hard way that getting the wrong specialist can waste an awful lot of time.

    Hi again Leesa,

    Lucky my friend got home from her holidays early. The acupuncturist is called Caroline Smith and she operates from the Australian Centre for Natural Health and Wellness at 2 The Parade in Norwood. She has a couple of webpages (can't post the links in here but if you google her name and acupuncture, restrict it to Australian pages only you will see she features in a number of sites and articles).

    Good luck with it, I wish you all the very best (and look forward to reading your announcement)!
    :-)
