Improving your chances of getting pregnant naturally. Irregular periods can mean that you are not ovulating (producing an egg) regularly.
It is now possible for your GP to refer you directly to Bourn Hall for fertility testing and diagnosis. If this shows that you are not ovulating then OI treatment could be the answer and there is no charge to NHS patients (even in areas where there is no funding for IVF)
Monitored OI treatment boosts egg production and tells you when is the best time to have sex - increasing your chances of a getting pregnant naturally.
If you can't get pregnant it is easy to descend into a bitter spiral of self-blame. Stress is a key one - worried that you are too stressed, worrying about being stressed creates more stress, being told to relax makes your teeth clench. A Bourn Hall we support the whole person and the advice given as part of the free Fertility Diagnosis service includes coping tips - we include some in this post.
We also have Fertility Support Group social next week where everyone will understand what you are going through.
This time next year you could be pregnant - don't put off getting advice.
If you have been trying to get pregnant for two years with regular, unprotected sex then talk to your GP. If you are able to get referred for NHS tests then you could come to Bourn Hall and get a diagnosis in 6 weeks and a consultation with a fertility expert on your options.
