    Hello ladies I have a question
    It's been 2 years that we have been ttc our first child together we have a 6 year old and 3 year old from different relationships and iv been going to the gp for a year now we have gotten our sperm analysis back and my thyroid is now under control yayy anyways my gp said once my thyroid is under control he will be referring us to the nhs fertility specialists we are excited to finally be on the roll now
    When we get our first appointment what should we expect / how long does it take for them to get back to us Ect.. Also abit worried that because it was my thyroid that was the problem that we might be back to day one of ttc instead of 2 years :( X

    Hiya, at our first appointment we had to do loads of paperwork, family histories, previous pregnancies and children, discuss how often we dtd, cycles etc. Then we had to arrange more appointments for extra blood tests, ultrasounds, hsg and more SA. Our appointment was with the fertility nursing team, here we don't get to see the consultant until all the testing has been completed.

    They may discuss the types of treatment that are available (and as you already have children I don't think you will be eligible for NHS funding as you can't have any living children, but I think they should discuss that with you).

    I don't think your thyroid issue will reset the clock but if it has been out of whack then you may find you fall pregnant naturally now, fingers crossed for you!

    Thank you for ur reply. Dr said the same as u about the nhs funding but then he also said we might due to my last child being 6 years old I'm sure we will find out. I just wanted to prepare myself a little more. I'm really looking forward to the scans Ect as I do think my tubes are blocked Ect but have no proof just a gut feeling X
