Hi, you've had alot of tests done.I only had blood work, internal scan for ovaries,and a test that used dye to check that my tubes where not blocked. I have never been offered MRI scans or checked for diabetes or offered any meds at first. I have been on metformin for fertility but it made me ill, so know im on the pill and nothing else.
Ive been left out to dry basically by gps really, they dont seem interested in the condition.
