Getting Pregnant <
Long term TTC & infertility

Hi, we have been ttc for 2 years 4 months. Been to see GP who sent me for an ultrasound scan as i reckon ive got PCOS (i definitely have insulin resistance as i got diagnosed diabetic last year, along with almost all the other side effects listed), but no cysts were seen. I have always had irregular periods until i got put on metformin last year for the diabetes and have been every 28 days since. He then did a 21 day blood test which says its come back nomal.
Now, ive got a letter telling me ive been put on a waiting list for gynaecology and they will contact me again when ive moved up the list to several weeks waiting time.
i was a bit suprised, as GP said to me he would refer both husband and me to fertility, as no tests have been done on husband at all, but this letter only says for me.
I just wondered if anyone has experience on what happens at the gynae clinic? and whether husband will get checked after or what? Also, im rather over weight and im worried they are just going to tell me to lose weight, which i have been trying and trying but it is pretty hard with insulin resistance to lose it though i have managed 2 stone in the last year. I find it hard as i see other large ladies and they have children.
Any info would be great, as i am really at the point where i just want to know if i am or am not likely to be able to conceive, as i also have to worry about diabetic complications in pregnancy as well which is sounding really hard too. and if its not going to happen for me, then i would just like to get on with the rest of my life now as i keep putting things on hold in case we get pregnant.

I have been TTC for 8 months. But since i came off the pill i had no period at all. So i went to my GP. He sent me for a internal scan at the Hospital. Came back that i have PCOS. So went back to GP, who refered me to fertility at Hospital. My husband is booked for a sperm test (does this happen at the doctors? or the hospital?) and i had to do a swab to cancel out other probs i guess.
So my appointment at the fertility is jan 20th 2014...what should i expect on this appoint? i really just want to get on chlomid??! how much longer will i hav to wait to be prescribed?!?!?!?!
Any advice/experiences are fab to me xxx
