My Dr. Called

First she left me a voicemail and said she had the results from my bloodwork and that nothing was 'alarming' and she'd like to speak to me to follow up on something.


When I finally reached her she told me that I definitely wasn't O'ing and would like me to come in so we can go over the next step.  She never mentioned PCOS or any other reason just that I wasn't.  My appt is on 5/2 and now that it has been confirmed that I don't O I'm just nervous of what's to come.  :/

Same thing happened to me - Though my bloodwork was really bad and she said I more than likely had PCOS based on my results.


This board is an excellent source of information for you - PLEASE post any questions you have - more than likely one of us has gone through it.


From my previous experience after it was determined that I did not O,  I had an vaginal ultrasound done and then my doctor put me on Clomid to see if it would work for me.  I hate that you have to wait that long for an appointment - That seems like a long time to me.

When is a u/s typically done and what can they determine from that?  And when you start clomid how often do you have to go back to the doctor?

I'm sorry you received the news that you are not Oing!  I know it must be hard, but there are plenty of women who didn't O and with help they were able to get there and get pregnant!  I hope you can be seen earlier, if possible, although I think for some GYN's that's a pretty short wait time.  Could you ask to be put on some cancellation waiting list??


I'm not sure about the u/s, but I had mine done on CD2 (two different cycles) to check my ovaries, fallopian tubes and uterus.  I know other women who are going through what you are have had u/s leading up to O to see how the follicles are developing.  They could give you better info than me!

U/S can determine if you have PCOS (not a definate sign though). She also checked to see what my ovaries looked like, the thickness of my uterus etc.


For a Clomid Check, I usually have to go in twice - CD 12 (ultrasound) and CD 20(bloodwork).  Some doctors do a little bit more monitoring than that, so it could be different for your doctor.

Have you mentioned anything to your boss if you work about needing to leave/take-off for Dr. appts?  I feel like a few people in my office may ask/be worried if I have to leave for appts. pretty often.

I don't have that problem with what I do at work - but I understand what you mean. 


If you think it could jeopardize your job and you feel comfortable talking with your boss, I would just let them know what you are going through right now.  Are you hourly or salary?  If hourly, just try and schedule your lunch breaks around your doctor's appointments and offer to come in early/stay late to make up your time. 


You may want to hold off until your first doctor's appointment just to see how your doctor is going to handle your monitoring - since you don't even really know your reason for not ovulating right now.

I understand - If my job didn't have me out of the office so much, I would be worried about the same thing.  I don't think you need to give specifics to your boss, just that you are having some issues with your health right now and they are needing to monitor you.  Most people won't probe too much further. 


My mind is always 10 steps ahead of me too so I understand :)

I told my boss we are having "fertility problems" and he was really understanding.  I offered to stay late to make up time I used for Doctor's appointments and he told me to just put them in the system as Permission Doctor and I didn't have to stay late.  I'm sure most would be understanding about it!! :)


Sorry you aren't O-ing hun, sending prayers for you that it changes soon!! :)
