Hi Nina! I didn't have to go through my OB making feeble uneducated efforts, but I did have to go through my OB telling me to stop worrying and just be patient. Uh, I've been patient for long enough, thank you! When I saw the RE he reviewed my history and said, "This shouldn't be hard -- let's get started!" That same day he did a pelvic exam and drew blood, and the next day there was an ultrasound. We sat down and went over all the results and figured out a plan that we were able to start that same day! I'm glad you decided to see an RE -- they are AMAZING compared to OBs. Well, most of them are, as long as you find a good one I hope your stay here is SO SHORT!
