My OB is labeling everything as infertility. My mother (OB nurse for 15ish years) says "no you are not infertile. You can get pregnant, you can carry to term. You have some kind of medical condition causing a LPD. It is NOT infertility."
I'm frustrated because any bloodwork I have right now is being denied. We have insurance, but its the flex spending. Usually we a pro-rated amount. However, because the bloodwork is labels as infertility, it wont even gives us a prorated amount. I have not gotten any recent office visits or u/s bills so IDK about those yet. HOWEVER, my "infertility meds" are covered 100% since we reached our deductable. The only one that was funny was the trigger shot (but still it is cheaper now that we hit the magic number then it was last cycle before we reached the magic number!). I mean, the blood work is $600!! For last cycle they had me do CD 3 FSH and CD 21 progestrone (7DPO) so it was $1,200 on just bloodwork! I'd be really nice if they could find an alt code to use. Really I don't care infertile or not - all I know is I can get pregnant all day long but I can't stay pregnant b/c of the LPD. I just don't like the "I" word since insurance refuses to cover it.

My doctor labeled it as an unknown hormonal issue or some such nonsense as well. My insurance wouldn't touch anything with infertility included. He also listed me as a "spontaneous aborter" (as much as I HATE that term) instead of just as infertile to get other procedures through.
