Is your doctor an Ob-Gyn or just a Family practice physician? If the latter, I would suggest an Ob-Gyn they should have a much better understanding of all of this stuff. Family practice physicians are responsible for knowing about everything so they forget a lot of stuff or maybe never learned it in the first place. If it's an Ob-Gyn one would think they would know better. Or maybe they just don't want to be bothered with you, that unfortunately happens too...

Maybe she is afraid you will have another m/c. I imagine an ob-gyn might take that personally or worry about suit. OB-gyn's are one of the most frequently sued. In any event, a good one will do as you want whether they agree or not. Hope you find a good one, I am searching myself.

Anniemarie,

As I posted earlier, I had a FSH of 94.6 8 months ago. The nurse over the phone told me I was in menopause at 40. I was devastated. Turns out after taking a round of prevera to "jumpstart" my cycles after stopping BFing my DD, My first cd3 FSH after that was 6.4. MY OB said that my FSH kept going higher and higher trying to kick out an egg, that was not ready, because my hormones were so out of whack from the BFing.

The first thing is, you are not in menopause, even with a FSH of 30, until you go one full year without any bleeding at all. none, zippo, zilch. If you spot, then the year count starts over. It just means that your FSH level was has high as a woman's is who has gone through menopause...it does not mean that you are in menopause.

You can have AF and get a high reading on your meter/OPKs and not ovulate. Your body gears up to ovulate and then doesn't so you get the high reading. Found this info which explains it very well.
