Disappointing D&C followup

So aside from sitting waiting almost an hr to see the Dr and seeing every pregnant woman that lives in my area while choking back tears...

My Dr said no to Clomid or Femara. She said why? I said to get pregnant. She said I dont have a problem since ive been pregnant every 6m. technically it was 7 & 5m but Im sure she;d say the same thing so I didnt say that.

She said avg AF post D&C is 6-12 wks! Good Lord! Im going to be in a nursing home before I can TTC again!

She also said since Ive had recurrent m/cs she wants to do a bunch of blood tests to see if there is a reason why. I asked if ins would cover & she said well its not infertility its recurrent m/c so now I have to call ins co to see what they will cover. There are 7-8 different blood tests & a 'tube-o-gram'. Isnt that called something else where they squirt dye in?

Anyway, Im not really sure if I care about these tests. I mean I do & I don't . I want to know how much Ill have to pay but I also wonder why it seems like no one else has had all these tests done, aside from 'tube-o-gram' post recurrent mc.

If they tell me I have some gene mutation or lupus or something there is nothing I can about it right?
So I just got it or I got lucky with DD?

*mindy*

Hey, I have heard women getting the "post recurrent m/c" blood work done so I think that's pretty common and the dye test is called an Hysterosalphingogram (say THAT ten times fast or even once for that matter!) It's to make sure your tubes aren't blocked or built up with a lot of scar tissue and other abnormalilites.


As far as what you do if the blood work comes back with some eff'd up disorder that explains your m/c's I think I would ask myself these questions before I made a decision to continue to TTC:


- How high is the chance of m/c? If it was even as high as 50/50 I could keep TTC

I remember sitting in the waiting room for my follow up and I am pretty sure half my state was not only pg but they where all waiting for my Dr too. I can feel your pain *HUGS*

Hi Mindy,


I'm so sorry for the not-so-great experience at your doctor's office.....especially seeing all the pg women there. :(


Because I've had 2 m/c's this year, my ob's going to run some b/w on me too. I know you're disappointed about not getting the meds, but

I'm so sorry. I think doctors sometimes are so insensitive. I mean don't they understand how important TTC is to us. Also, they seem so cold when it comes to testing/financial issues. I'm sorry you are going through this. Hopefully, the doc is wrong and AF will return before 6 weeks. Take care, Jen

Thanks for your help in breaking down what the bloodwork means.
YOu're right that makes sense.
I guess I was just hoping for some magic solution & not giving me what I want pisses me off as well :)

I should be thankful they are doing testing.
My insurance, claims they will 'cover it' but their terminology always confuses me. She said Id have to pay for each lab visit, which should just be my copay yet they will cover hsg 100%?! sounds fishy to me, but i guess Ill go thru with it & see what they say.

Also thanks to my Dr & her internal exam, I think AF is here, so Im going to call today Day 1 so I dont need to go to ER for lab work on Sat! I had 1 brown spot b4 I went in & then nothing until after exam.

For the record, my insurance is crap and they paid for my HSG and blood work 100%

Thats good to hear cuz mine is crap as well ;) Lucky us!

I noticed they didn't cover some of the blood typing for my D&C. I was a tad confused by that.

Get out! That’s weird because if ANYTHING was 100% medical - a D&C would be it! Freakin POS insurance companies!
