    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.

    Yes it is possible to ov on day 25. I've been pregnant twice, first time I ovd on CD69, second on CD70-something. I did lose both but according to doctors the CD had no bearing on this.

    Neither me nor my oh knew anything about our family histories, we are both from families who don't discuss that sort of thing. We did ok on our own questions though haha.

    I had also had bloods and ultrasounds and I had to have all those tests repeated in more detail, different people did the scans so I suppose they might pick up on different issues. I thought it was a bit odd at the time having to have them done again. Hsg is where they pump dye up your foof and xray it to check uterus and tubes etc. Not that pleasant I might add but not as horrific as I thought it was going to be.

    Yes should do. Cysts do come and go in a very short space of time though so they can show loads one scan then be gone on the next or vice versa. My scans have all been covered in cysts though so no doubt there. They should also scan your kidneys too if they see signs of pcos as it can also affect them.

    Pcos doesn't care what weight you are, in the past it was believed that you had to be overweight to have it but this is not true, there are lots of normal and underweight ladies with pco too. It could of course also be something totally different too. Hope you get some answers :)
