My gynaecologist appointment was Thursday afternoon. It was meant to have been at 3:45 pm, but it was actually about 5:15 pm when we were seen. They did say there would be a bit of a delay when we got there, but seriously, that's more than a "bit" isn't it? 20 to 30 minutes... Yeah, I'll accept that as a "bit" of a delay. But any more than that is ridiculous!
Anyway, this is the cue for anyone not interested in... Erm... Female issues, to stop reading, and to go read other blogs. Oh, but if you do that... Please come back tomorrow! Please?
Right, well, as most of you know from recent posts, my female problems are suspected to be the cause for my anemia. The reason this is suspected is because I have such a bad time. I'm one of those people who considers herself lucky to get more than a week in the month without bleeding. This is, as you can imagine, tiring on the body. Not to mention the fact that it makes my goal of becoming a mother rather difficult. So, I went to see the gynaecologist to try and sort that out.
There are a couple of ways that it can be done. Tablets, the pill in some form, a coil, or removal of those parts causing the problem. Well, that last one isn't an option at all. If I had a child, sure! I mean, if I had a child they'd be welcome to it. But since I'm only 25, and since I haven't had any luck on the baby front, then there's no way I'm going to go for that option. Which leaves us with just the first three ways to try and sort it.
The pill in some form, and the coil, would both delay the baby thing. Only for a while, since they don't advise either be used for more than a year or so for what I would use it for. But, they would still delay it. Needless to say, I'm not enthusiastic about those ideas. Although, they would be more preferable than the surgical option, since at least they wouldn't stamp out the possibility of motherhood. And it is possible to conceive while using the coil, and while on the pill. It's just less likely to happen. And, I suppose I am only 25, so waiting for a couple more years wouldn't be the end of the world.
We're going with the tablets option for now though, because they shouldn't affect my chances of conception. I'm also going for a scan to make sure it is just a general things are just a bit messed up (meaning hormones) rather than something else being wrong.
I swear I'm destined to spend my life in hospital! I get rid of one doctor, and I'm seeing another! :(
