OK so I did not get Progesterone!
The nurse told me my OB referred me to see an RE as they DO NOT prescribe Progesterone as Ive been taking it. I know I said I would cry & freak out but I give up.

I was toying with RE anyway & if its easier for me to get it that way, fine. My Dr seems to think they can code it as recurrent loss so ins will still cover it or Blood Disorder.

I feel like a deflated balloon!

I also made initial appt for acupuncture on Sun. Im hoping for better luck in Eastern Med arena. Its also a 'community center' so they charge on a sliding scale.

Those freakin bastards! God I hate dr's! The RE will def be more open to giving it to you although you may still have to fight for it and they may want to test it at 7 DPO to make sure it's low before they write the RX.

Ya Ive had it.
So much so Im drinking a glass of wine already!
I started spotting today so Im sure Progesterone is just holding off AF. I guess Ill stop since I need to save them.

Im fine if they want to test, as Id be willing to bet its awful!

My RE appt isnt until 9/1. Luckily I still have a few months left of Progesterone.

Ugh I'm so sorry. That's just the worst. I hope RE is good with giving it to you. Mine actually prescribes it automatically for right after O. I actually turned it down, but she said it something they just prescribe prophylactically even if you aren't showing signs of needing it. My insurance wouldn't cover the prescription and I had never showed signs of needing it (finally somewhere my body was "normal"!). Hopefully they'll just give it to you!

Thx

Ya I wouldn't take it if I didnt need it.
Even with it I only get an 11 day LP.

I just hope the RE can work some magic. I may call back to see if they have any earlier appts.
