I think I'm firing my RE tomorrow!

I have to vent for a moment, I apologize in advance!
Since I was diagnosed with POF back in April, the RE has consistently said that I should get back on track with having g a regular cycle - something I haven't had at all since I went off BCP in September 2007. At the ultrasound in April, there was a lining and 1 follie that never actually ovulated so I should have had a period a couple of weeks later, right? But no, nothing.
Then they put me on HRT since there are concerns about young women and bone loss due to lack of estrogen. I nicely take the HRT for almost 2 months until I realize that not only have I not had a period, the pills are making me completely insane. So I stopped the HRT last week and phoned the RE's office Monday morning to tell them.
The nurse calls me later in the day, I recount the entire sad story and she promises to follow-up with the RE and call me back on Tuesday. We play phone tag yesterday afternoon and as the Wednesday passes by I still have no call. Finally, at 6 p.m. the call comes in.
The genius now wants to put me on low dose BCP because that's so different than the damn HRT! In my discussion with the nurse I say things like, beside not making me crazy, why is this going to regulate my cycle when the HRT won't? The nurse has no answer. I ask if perhaps the fact that the pills aren't doing what they are supposed to might be a problem? Again, no answer. Apparently, the nurse forgot to tell the RE everything I told her except that the stupid HRT was making me loony!
So I will wait for another phone call in the morning. I am assuming they will once again tell me they want to give me more pills and not look for the root cause of the problem. So I think I will nicely be telling them where to stick their pills and starting to shop for a new RE who perhaps has a little vision and thinks that the fact that my body is not properly responding to medication is actually a problem. Oh well, back to the drawing board!
