I am Scarlett, I have been reading up a lot of useful info on this forum for past few months and have learnt a great deal from this site.
Basically I and my husband have been TTC for well over 3 years in total now. The story goes something like this; Initially after a year of TTC, we learnt DH had zero sperm count (as all my ultrasound scans, physical examinations and blood tests were normal) so he was referred to a Reproductive Endocrinologist. It took nearly 10 months to see the RE (as he was referred to 2 hospitals/consultants in error who did not specialize in male fertility matters and therefore refused to see him). He has been on various medications since seeing his RE and from the past eight months, his sperm count has returned to normal (20million/ml). We were both advised to try naturally for a few months by his consultant (RE) as my DH had normal sperm levels but still no luck.
Over the last year, I have had excessive facial and abdominal hair growth as well as pain during intercourse. After googling and finding this site, I realized there was something definitely wrong with me so decided to have blood works and scans. My recent Ultrasound scans and tests revealed that I did in fact have PCOS. I have been diagnosed with “Borderline” PCOS.
Now the thing is that I am 30 years old and dying to have a baby ASAP – I feel very deprived and have started to lose hope. I feel that my Gynae might prescribe some meds like Metformin, Clomid or hormones or inositol as she has kind of hinted that already during our last meeting. I badly want to have “Ovarian Drilling” done and not waste anymore time by taking meds for months and months.
What can I do to persuade her to sanction Ovarian Drilling for me straight away? I have an appointment to see her (Gynae) on Monday 1st August so any helpful advice before then would be highly appreciated.
Thanks in advance
