And there will not be a day 3. Not this month anyway.

No horror story about being on the drug…..just another let down by the NHS.

My first point is that during day 2, I didn’t suffer any side effects.  I didn’t feel overly emotional, no break downs, no break outs, no light headedness etc.  At least that was a good thing!

Today I called to make an appointment for a scan. I didn’t know when I needed my first one, but the doctor said before; ‘start taking the Clomid, then call so we can scan you regularly through the the month’.  But…..that’s not correct….surprise surprise.  The first scan MUST be between day 2 and 5 of your period.  Tomorrow is day 5 and they have no appointments to squeeze me in.  So now I’ve been told categorically, stop taking the medication because I cannot be monitored and wait until my next cycle.  The lady I spoke to on the phone also said not to start taking Clomid unless I have a scan confirmed.  So, if any of you are about to start on this medication too…..BOOK YOUR SCAN.

Why the f*** didn’t they tell me that from the start?!? Throughout this process….as far as I am concerned I am a puppet.  They tell me what to do and I will follow it to the letter.  How am I supposed to do that if they don’t tell me???

So after waiting months just to start the medication and finally get on the road to somewhere…..I now have to wait even longer.  September will mark 8 years from when we came off the pill and hoped for the best. Will this ever happen?

I feel so let down by all the doctors that have been on my journey so far.  Gutted.
