My Dr. Visit

I finally had my visit with a new dr for my annual but she is also an RE.  She was great!!  Based on CM she does not believe I O'd this month and since this month I actually had a normal cycle I wasn't able to detect one either.  She ordered the following tests for me: Progesterone, Prolactin and TSH, 3rd Generation...going on Saturday morning to have these done since I need to fast.  She wanted me to make an appt to talk to her about the results but unfortunately she is going on vacation and the only appt avail is on 5/2 so I have to wait about a month to hear the results :/.

Can the nurse not give you the results?  My nurse tells me my numbers, but has to wait for the doctor to give me the "new plan of attack."  Are there not any other stand by doctors in the practice that can help you? 


The wait game is not fun, so just trying to think of other ways for you to get your information.

I'm not sure because when I was talking with the doctor she said she wanted to see me back to go over the results then when I was out at the front desk they told me she was going on vacay and I couldn't get in to see her until May.  Maybe they will call me with the results before then...I'm not sure.  Hopefully!  I get the blood work done on Saturday so I'll call them about a week after and see if they can tell me anything.  I think I was so nervous that I really missed a lot of what the doctor was saying...:/ and I had to bring my blood work request in to work and google what the tests were and what they mean.

LOL, I do the same thing!! I have learned to bring a little notepad with me everytime I go to the doctor now!!! I get so wrapped up on one thing she said and then a couple of days later I forget what she told me :-)  My doctor's office tells me that it takes about 10 days to get the results back, but it always seems they call me sooner than that.  Feel free to post here on what the tests are :)  I get my blood drawn about twice a month now, so I am sure sure we can help you figure everything out!!


Are you getting your blood drawn on a certain cycle date? Or is this to just diagnose what might be going on with you?

Bringing a notepad is a great idea!!  I'll definitely try to remember that the next time.  She didn't say it had to be on a certain day??  I'm on CD29 right now but this is the first month I've actually had a . It hadn't been around since October so I have no idea how long this cycle will be.  She said she didn't think I O'd because of the CM but I'm on day 29 so it should have been any time recent.  The tests are just to try and figure out if I'm O'ing...not really sure what kind of answer they provide or if they just show that I'm not and then I have to go in for more or if they actually show a reason?  I'm totally clueless.

Ask her to call you with the results, my Dr. told me the results and prescribed my medication over the phone after my initial visit/testing... I guess I don't see why you need a face to face unless they want to do an U/S to check for cysts or something. :)  Don't let them make you wait over a month for results, you poor thing!   Good luck! :)

Hum, I wouldn't rule out that you didn't O just because of your CM!  On FF I see charts all of the time with No EWCM and they still get pregnant that month.  I hope your test results can make it back to you faster than May!!!  Maybe you could ask for them (from the nurse) and then do a little research online.  Not saying that you could really start a plan without your doctor, but just having peace of mind I think would help if I was in your situation.  Just a thought!  Good luck with everything!

Yeah, I really liked this Dr. but her saying that she didn't think I O'd just from looking and being on this day in my cycle caught me off guard...in the beginning of the appt I told her thatI used FF and didn't detect an O with OPK's and my temps didn't really tell me anything.  I will call after 10 days and see if they can tell me the results!  Maybe the receptionist didn't understand what I was making my next appt for. ;)  She may have also ordered the testing because I told her we'd been trying for 8 months and I'll be 34 this year...
