hi Carrie,

I'm sorry you're having a rough time. I hope AF shows up soon for you so you can "get going" with all your invasive procedures you are so looking forward to (not). I'm really sorry to hear that it's all getting you down. I definitely know what you mean about the male-dominated medical profession. If they had to go through 1/10 of what we do each month, plus the possibility of labour and delivery, we would definitely not be suffering from an over-populated planet! Hopefully you and Fred won't get too close to each other and he can go bother someone else.

I saw your reply to my other post. Looks like we're the on hold crew. I'm feeling your frustration. My 'oh SO not thinking' DH said, hmmm, maybe we should wait until you see the rheumatologist on Sept 22 before we TTC. Are you NUTS?!!! At this point, I'm waiting 3 AFs! Both the peri and the RE gave us the green light as long as I'm up for it. It's like some cruel experiment to them ... let's see what happens. I'm in a fly by pattern for at least 5 weeks, IF everything goes well for me.

You are having long cycles - hope AF hits soon. Nothing I can say makes that one any better. But, as for all this invasive stuff, I'm there with you. I had an HSG but couldn't take anything for the pain b/c of another drug I was on at the time. Well, the RE started and then asked me if I had taken some pain medicine (which I had told her 5 minutes earlier I had NOT ... love feeling like they don't listen) b/c she was going to have to use clamps. Clamps? That wasn't anywhere in the description. Difficulty getting into the uterus, you see, so it was going to hurt "a little." At the end she said if it was any consolation, it was one of the worst she had to do. Actually, no, didn't make me feel any better - I just wanted out of there. So much for a little cramping.

I think that if you really don't want to get all the invasive testing, don't. Talk to your RE and see what the probability is that these things will be helpful. Maybe they can piecemeal it out and check the things that have the highest probability of causing problems. They drew lots of blood, right? The obvious thing is, do you risk another m/c? Of course, even all these tests don't guarantee not having another m/c, otherwise I think it would be easier to stomach. It just sucks all around. But, it is your body and you definitely have a say in it.

Whatever you do, you're supported here in all your decisions.


TTC #1
