So, I went to see the doctor today, and he looked over all my test results, all my history and he has no diagnosis for me. He gave me another blood draw and I should have results sometime in October, but he doesn't think that there's enough evidence to diagnose anything and especially not enough to give me better treatment during pregnancy. He also didn't sound convinced that I have PCOS. Well, uh, sorry dude you're probably a good doctor, but you're not a gynecologist, and you're not an RE. Just because I'm thin and don't have hair in odd places (as I told him, I get it lasered off...) he thinks I don't. My labwork clearly indicates it and so do my ultrasounds. My gyn AND my RE believe I have it.

So he wasn't helpful.

He does believe I need to get regular blood draws just to make sure things don't get worse. But it dosen't look like he's going to be any help unless I get worse.

If I TTC again, I think my RE is going to be the most help. She already has an HSG planned for me next cycle. And she thinks injectibles could help with my ovulation quality.

He was very dismissive of me and of my concerns, and didn't even seem to think that 3 miscarriages in a 7-month timespan are that concerning.

Wow. Sorry he wasn't more helpful. Glad your RE is more willing to do something for you!

Thanks to Jaidynsmum for my siggy!

Well, he sounds like a complete waste of time. It doesn't take an MD, or a genius, to figure out that SOMETHING is obviously going on. Thank God you have a good RE who gets you! Was this just your primary doc?

Sorry he didn't take you seriously.

*Thank you so much to Jaidynsmum for my beautiful siggy!*

No, this was actually a specialist in internal medicine
He was SUPPOSED to get it. He was supposed to be concerned.
I just hope that the "more testing" he ordered will be bad enough to wake him up.
I know it's weird to hope for bad results. But I know something's wrong and I just want it to be clear what it is so I can get treatment. *sigh*

Makes me SO mad that doctors think they are THAT smart that they have the right to diagnose you or "un" diagnose you because of SYMPTOMS.
I'm sorry it wasn't what you wanted,hun!
