RE questions about testing
I just started taking Chinese Herbs after seeing an acupuncturist. I am going to be followed by Randine Lewis who wrote The Infertility Cure through phone consultations after being examined by her partner in Houston. My question is that the day after I got back from Houston, I had my first appointment with an RE. He told me that he would not typically treat me since I only had one loss (but I have had two). I guess he did not think losing a child at birth was relevant which was definitely a tremendous loss for me. He was trying to be nice and say he would do tests because I was asking him to. The only reply I had was that I am not going to lose another baby. My point was not move forward trying to conceive until I am as healthy as I can be. It doesn't make any sense for me to try to get pregnant and lose 2 more babies to fit their protocol of 3 losses! So, he said he felt the most he would do is the biopsy of the lining, which would be in about 2 weeks. Then next month take the Clomid and test the follicles (FSH test I think), and then put the dye in the uterus to look for blockages. How could I have a blockage if I just got pregnant in May? And is it safe to put dye inside your uterus?
My biggest question is in your opinions, does it make sense to have these tests before the Herbs and Acupuncture is just beginning? Wouldn't taking Clomid possibly mess up taking the Herbs? Can't doing that biopsy hurt your uterus somehow? I have what is called a 'cold uterus' in TCM. That means that my lining just might be not where it needs to. So, shouldn't I take the test when I think I have improved?
Don't know if you can answer any of this, but what if I am just setting myself up for all this bad news when if I wait a month to improve the tests might just show a positive outlook. Do I really need a doctor to tell me I can never have a baby when he really could be absolutely wrong! What would I expect from those 3 tests? It sounds very painful.
Thank you everybody,
