After 18months of trying for a baby I was diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome. My GP informed me I would need to be referred to a specialist and that in order to do so I would first need to have some tests.
Every time I was told I had had the required tests, more tests were added to the list, including tests for my husband.
My husband's work means he is around very little so trying to get his tests done was near impossible. After 3 months, I was eventually told my referral could be done so I waited. After hearing nothing for 2 months, I checked with my GP to find out the referral had never been sent.
They then sent the referral which was rejected because most of the tests had been done incorrectly, so I had to go through having the tests all over again.
In my opinion the only good service in all of this was Sentinel who contacted me within 48hrs and arranged me an appointment for the following day.
My GP told me I needed to reduce my stress levels but this whole thing has put them through the roof.
