Hi. my partner and I have been trying to get pregnant for 20 months and on the 19th Dec we are going for our inital consultation. with the fertility clinic. I no longer know what normal feels like with my body as every twinge or ache is quickly over analysed as a symptom but I do have this one thing that keeps niggling me. I have always "felt" my ovulation but in the last 3 months it has been incredibly painful and not exactly correlating with my ovulation and comes a week later. It is always on my left side and aches in to my hip and groin area. now is this something to worry about and should I go to the gp before my consultation as we are having to go privately as my husband has children from a previous relationship so it makes us ineligible for treatment on the nhs. so I wouldn't like to waste money privately that I may need later if any tests I need could be covered. also does anyone have any good coping strategies as at the moment not just in the day of my period but for days before when I recognise Af is l coming and a week after I am tearful and down to the point that it is starting to affect my work. Sorry for the long post but any advice greatly appreciated.
