Hi ladies,

I am due to start treatment as soon as my AF arrives, i have had light spotting today, do i need to wait until the proper bleed before i can ring?

Thanks

I would wait, I rang too early on my last cycle and had to ring back and change dates. I was spotting and started light flow then it disappeared for 3 days before starting properly so ended up going 5 days later than original date.

The one time we want af to turn up it seems to take forever lol x

My clinic also say not to ring until you have a full flow. Hopefully it won’t be long and then you can get started x

Wasn’t it agreed what month you’d start when they ordered all your meds? Are you NHS funded x

I would perhaps ring and just say I was told I could start this month or at least ask if you can speak to the nurse today so you know what’s happening. They have so many people I think they can forget at times what’s been arranged especially if you spoke to the receptionist x

Glad there going to let you know soon, fingers crossed you can start this month. Oh how strange, maybe the stress is delaying things? X
