So my ob/gyn doc had spoke with the RE to get set up with seeing him...his nurse emailed me promptly with an appt. date, (12/15) I freaked out & told her via email that maybe Jan. would be best. This happened exactly 1 wk ago today. I STILL have not heard back from the nurse after sending her 2 emails. Yesterday I gave in & called the office asking to speak with her & she was in clinic. The receptionist was going to give her the message to call me but no call Do you think its too pushy to call over there again sometime today ??? I dont like being ignored but also hate being a pesty patient (myself being a nurse I know the other side of how patients can be)

Can you just make the appt. yourself by calling the receptionist?

I would be annoyed, too! Is there any reason to think that maybe she's not getting your emails for some reason?

^^ Ditto! I do understand not wanting to be pushy but at the same time they SHOULD be returning your calls so in this instance I think you are 100% justified. I'd call them back myself & even tell them you have been trying to get in touch with her for several days now & she has not called you back & that you really need to talk to her.

This has to be frustrating! For me, it would be a red flag... if they are difficult to get a hold of NOW when things are simple, how hard will it be to get answers or responses when you are in the midst of a cycle or really need them?

I'd schedule the appointment without her input. When you get there, make sure you let her know you tried for several days and she did not reply and this can't happen through your tests or cycles... what can you /she do to make sure this doesn't happen again? (and blah blah blah)...

I hope you get an appointment set up soon!

ETA: love those greyhounds! Did you rescue them? They look so sweet

I would be worried if they can't get back to you for a simple appointment change.

Hope you get a hold of them soon!!!

I have never contacted my clinic by email. I think making a phone call would be faster and definitely not pushy. I call my clinic all the time and they never make me feel bad. I would just call!

Ok Girls ****UPDATE ************
When I got to work, my first incoming phone call was the RE's nurse. She apologized for not getting back to me right away, they've been extremely busy & are trying to take in extra patients from another doc who is moving. It really got me super duper excited just talking to her. DH & I are going on Tues 12/15 @10am !!!! Yay !!!!!! Should be interesting to find out what he has to offer. I feel a bit overwhelmed, are there certain questions I should be sure to ask ????? I already have my charts printed off & ready to show him. Thanks a bunch

PS- Gwynne, yes we did adopt our 3 greyhounds, they are the most wonderful little animals ... I'd have more if I could !

Awesome!

I would definitely expect to have the routine RE checkup--bloodwork, post-coital exam, HSG, possible laparoscopy, SA for DH, etc.

Glad you've got the ball rolling!

oh thats good news. I am glad you are getting in.

My best advise is take a notepad and pen. And have your questions written down because I always forget.

DH did an SA on 10/16/09 -showed slightly abnormal results: morph. 26% (norm >30%) & also the viability was 54% (norm >75%)

I've had a sonohysterogram which was normal, & bloodwork that included TSH & Prolactin, both of those were normal but my progesterone was only 6 so that's why she put me on Clomid. (currently trying cycle 3 of 50mg)

I know with those results my ob/gyn had already talked to this RE & her words coming from him was that we'd do best with IUI. She mentioned that a few months ago .... now that we are meeting with the RE ourselves, in person, I'm anxious to find out what else he has to say/offer. I'm not sure what the post-coital exam is ?? Can you explain ?
