Yet Another Obstacle.... (m/c ment)

OK so this may get a little confusing. So I had a doctor I started with during my pg but unfortunately when I started to m/c I ended up with the doctor who was oncall. Originally things were going well with her. She did my d&c followed it closely set up my MRI and kept blowing smoke up my @$$ about wanting to help me and doing everything that could be done to help me carry. This last m/c was my 3rd in my lifetime. Well after the MRI and her failed attempt at getting me an HSG she seemed to not want to deal with me any longer. Well while my hcg was going down after the d&c which took a long time she went on vacation and I had called to get lab results well myy original doctor reviewed my results and contacted me immediately and told me I needed another round of b/w because my levels were still way too high for 5 weeks from my d&c. Well I spoke with him at that point about the very weird period I was having and reassured me it was normal especially since my hcg level was still not down. He also told me that I would need progesterone therapy for my next pregnancy. So I took that information and did research on it and spoke with the other doctor when she returned from vacation about this. I read the research that showed that progesterone therapy really only works when started 4-6 dpo for luteal phase defects later than that it does not have high success rates. So I left messages with her so we could try this. Wel she wouldn't call me back and finally had her secretary call me and let me know that she is not comfortable with this since she is not a fertility doctor. She also said I needed to see an RE. Well once again I left a message stating my insurance wouldn't cover one and to even begin to try and get them to approve one, long shot, I needed a referral. Well I went through this cycle and got no where with her. So I went there today to get her to fill out my claim form for Aflac and request a referral again for an RE. Well she filled out the form but still will not give me a referral. Now she wants me to find one my insurance will cover which I have already informed her there isn't one and in order to to fight for coverage and an authorization I need a referral first and still she won't give me one or even return my calls. Well when I went to the offic eto pick up everything she was leaving as I got there. She looked at me and paused and instead of at least acknowledging me she just turned around and continued walking to her car, so for me that just added insult to injury. Instead of just telling me that she doesn't want to work with me anymore she is

Well here's hoping. I have an appointment with him on Monday and we'll see how that goes. I have my research and charts to bring and my DH is off that day so we're going together which will be helpful.
