Update saw Dr yesterday

Ok so DH and I went to see the other doctor about what is going on with me. He gave the same information that I need to see a specialist, but at least he actually talked to me. He says he doesn't want to treat the progesterone and set me up for disappointment in the event that the progesterone is not my only problem. He is also concerned because in my chart one of the ultrasound reports lists my uterus as didelphyc and then I have another ultrasound and an mri that lists it as bicornuate. So now he is concerned about which diagnosis is correct so kinda feel like that I'm back at square 1 again. Also he brought up the possibility of a metroplasty to try and correct my uterine shape which I am not comfortable with at this point because it is major surgery and has quite a few very large risks associated with it. He gave me a referral for a consult with infertility specialists and I explained that he needed to contact my insurance company because the referral the other dr gave wasn't enough and he looked at the referral she wrote up and was visibly surprised at what she wrote and at first said that couldn't be it. On the script/referral she wrote she actually put the reason for the referral as anxiety to conceive, that does not denote medical necessity.

Your post nearly brought me to tears. I really hope that your Dr. can do more to help you on your journey. I am sending a TON of baby dust your way :) and hope you can get your sticky BFP soon! Please keep us updated.

Ok so I have the referral in hopefully. Dr's office said they would send it today after alot of insurance drama yesterday. I do have an appointment with an RE scheduled for 2/5 and I'm hoping I will get the approval so I can actually go to it. Here's the drama from the past 24 hours: Well I booked the appointment with the specialist and called my insurance to check on the referral claim and it hasn't been received from my doctor's office yet so I called my doctor's office and she is in the process of taking care of it today. The secretary spoke with my insurance yesterday and they told her that infertility treatments are covered except for invitro and invivo which is great but not what they told me. I was told that only diagnostic testing is covered, so we'll see. There is just so much drama associated with the insurance company. I just handled phone calls with my dr's office and my insurance

I want you to know that I am a product of a bicornuate uterus! Unfortunately my mom did have 5 m/c but she also had 2 beautiful kids...me!(oh and my sister) We were born premature..I was 2 months early and weighed in at 3 lb 5oz...my sis was 2 months early and weighed in at 4 lbs...so it is possible and we are perfect! good luck to you!

I'm also a product of a bicornate uterous.


Me and my 2 brothers. I was full term, although breach and one brother was full term transverse (c-section). My other brother was breach and 9 weeks early weighing 5 lbs. He's 6 foot 4 now :)


My Mum 'may' have had one m/c after me (I'm the oldest) but her period was only 2 weeks late so she doesn't know for sure.


I wish you lots of luck.

Thank you for sharing that. This whole idea is just frustrating. The belief is that I may also have hormone deficiency but I can't get them to test for it so I have to just keep working at it until my insurance decides that I'm allowed to see a doctor, since my OBs won't do anything else for me.

I'm on my 4th OB and thus far he is the best one. He's concerned that the a hormone deficiency may not be my only issue so he doesn't want to get my hopes up to have them dashed over and over again. My major difficulty is fnding an OB knowledgable about my condition and willing to work with me. My current ob is familiar with my condition but I have multiple diagnosis in my chart so he wants a specialist or as he put it an expert to give a final diagnosis and a plan of treatment before he proceeds.
