Never heard of LPPKN? it is Lembaga Penduduk dan Pembangunan Keluarga Negara, under the Kementerian Pembangunan Wanita, Keluarga dan Masyarakat. It is somewhat a common name for couple like us who are seeking treatment/consultation to have our very own baby. Yes it is government agency, but no..its not a free service. Honestly, saya pun tak tahu pasal kewujudan LPPKN, but it exist since 1966.But im not sure since when it offers fertility clinic. Hubby said the treatment here is cheaper than private hospital, and dah ramai org success. Murah tak murah pun, memang kena prepare duit jugak lah. So here i would like to share my experience doing the treatment here.
First time appointment, was on april 24th.we were not seeing the doctor. There are some procedures/tests we have to do before we got to see the doctor. Hubby's semen was tested. Alhamdulillah..he is normal..hehe..Next,blood sample from both of us were taken. Itulah 1st time darah kene amek dengan banyaknya. Ayat nurse "halusnya tangan..tak jumpa urat".So she called experienced Sister to do it. Seminggu jegak bekas lebam kat tgn :( Then the nurse ask me to do HSG test .Since they dont have the machine for the HSG, the ask me to make appoinment with any hospital that provide the service.It has to be on the 7th to 10th day from my 1st day period. Kalau terlepas, kena tunggu next period cycle to do it. Dont want to wait any longer, so after call so many hospital to do it on Saturday (that is my 8th day of my period cycle), i manage to make appmnt with SDMC on 28 April.
So what is HSG? i google google google..and here it is.the long name is Hysterosalpingography.To describe it from my non-medical version, it is xray to see a woman's uterus and fallopian tube. Doctor will put a speculum and inject liquid so that the liquid will go into the tubes.Sakit!rasa nak menangis..tapi demi mendapatkan baby, i have to bear the pain. Dalam hati berdebar, what will be the result.After done, nak bgn susahnye..jalan pun terkengkang kengkang..huhu. Alhamdulillah, from the xray, the tubes and uterus appear normal. Good and free spill noted bilaterally=copy paste ayat kat result form :) They will give you the xray film. I will bring the film when i see the doctor at LPPKN later.
Some of my friends that had gone through that test said they cant even move at night..duduk melepek je kat rumah.it like u are having period pain with extra pain..im not exaggerating.but i read from somewhere in forum, some people with the X factor maybe experience less pain than i did.At the same date, saya dpt lucky draw from Miros, movie tix to see The Avengers. So after tempoh bertenang, hubby took me to see the free movie. Somehow it helps to make me forget about the pain, and at night i managed to come to Shu's wedding.
Here are hospitals nearby that offer the HSG that i phone called:
