I need to start formulating my list of questions.
I want to ask about progesterone supplements (because of my low progesterone levels from my blood draw two cycles ago). I also want to bring up Clomid, since he mentioned it in passing at my appointment with him back in August.
Do any of you think there might be a connection with poor ovulation (making Clomid more of a viable option) and my OPKs that I tend to get a "very close to +" result for about 2 or 3 hours and then it goes back to negative? This cycle, I had my fade in and the day that it got darker, I took an OPK every few hours to see what would happen and I only got one "very close to the control line darkness" and then a couple hours later, I tested again to see if it would darken even more and it actually was an almost non-existant test line. So, should I bring THAT up to the doctor? He didn't ask me to do OPK's, but I figure that they can't hurt anything and if it's additional knowledge, it might help, right?
I also want to bring up the possibility of endometriosis again. We briefly discussed that back in August, too. I have had history of unexplained abdominal pain, but it's not every single month.
The nurse I've been working with also told me that I should be reiterating my D&C story about my uterus not shrinking back to size, the bleeding that continued for weeks, and the "blood clots" they saw on the ultrasound, along with the meds I was given that caused horrible side effects.
Is there anything else I should be asking about? A friend of mine suggested that I ask about MTHFR. I don't even know whether that's something even worth asking about? I have had blood testing for all sorts of clotting disorders, thyroid, and auto-immune disorders which all have come back negative. So, I'm not sure whether MTHFR would be worth checking out?
What else should I ask about?
