OMG beyond mad at this point

So Ive been waiting on my RE referral since November.. My doc said not until I get all my b/w and HSG so I did all that, then he said not till DH gets blood work so he did, then he says DH needs a semen analysis. Ok so my insurance sucks and three of the OBs I've been too were terrible. DH has different insurance but it did not cove IF until just now, which if I knew I would have switched. So for now I have to deal with mine. I have called the RE and the OB. The RE wont see me without the referral. The OB nurse keeps intercepting my calls and emails and said she won't do the referral until we get the SA, but my DH can only give it in one lab about an hour away and he has an appt in feb cause they were booked. I asked the nurse if we could go ahead with the referral and then submit his results and they said no. Each month that goes by without help from the RE frustrates me like crazy. The nurse and OB are being real jerks. I'm so frustrated and don't know what to do. I have jumped thru so many hoops and all I want is to see the RE so I can get and stay pg. Thanks for listening.

I think Aubre's idea is brilliant! All they need a referral from dr! Doesn't matter which kind! Hit up your PCP!

How frustrating! And how obnoxious that the nurse keeps intercepting your calls! I always find that talking directly to the DOCTOR yields different instruction/conversation than talking to a nurse or even worse, a receptionist! Those nurses and receptionists seem to think they know exactly what a doctor has going on inside his/her head, when in actuality they don't always know. I hope you can get your referral through your PCP or endo! Good luck!

Wow thats Crazy.. Sorry you have to go through that. My ob sent us to the Re to start testing but results get sent to her (the OB) i think. Aubre's idea sounds great. Let us know if that works!

I would be pretty upset if I had to go through all of that mess you are having to go through.

Thats very annoying.
Anyway it would be worth it to switch OBs or call around & see if one would be willing to give you a referral easier than your current OB?
I know switching OBs is a pain but sounds like you ought to switch anyway.
*mindy*
