wait time for RE appt?

How long did you have to wait to be seen for your first RE appt?

I called today {still being seen by my OB, getting an RE referral tomorrow hopefully) and it's a 4 mo wait Sad I know this is probably normal, right??

Re: wait time for RE appt?

  • I was really lucky - only had to wait a week before we got in for the first appt to set up a plan! Is there anywhere else you can try?
    IUI #5 50 mg clomid + ovidrel + IUI 10/15 = BFP

    I don't think so. From what I've been told from other friends dealing with IF, there is only one RE here to see who takes Tricare.

  • I had to wait about six weeks for my first appointment.  I am switching REs soon, and hoping that I don't have a long wait.

    TTC #2, Operative hysteroscopy March 2011; IVF #1 long lupron protocol April 2011-cancelled due to poor response; IVF #2 flare protocol May 2011=hospitalization due to abdominal hemorrhage during ER and no fert due to MFI issues. Moving onto international adoption from Moldova January 2013!
  • I waited 2 months to be seen, and then another month before my cycle monitoring started.

    I asked my family doctor for the referral (you need referrals in Canada) before I hit the 12 month TTC mark because I knew from being on TB that wait times could be long. I think I went in at 10 months TTC and asked for the referral. I figured if I got KU before then, I would just cancel, and if I still wasn't KU then the appointment would be there waiting for me (if you can't tell, I may or may not have a Type A personality....).

    This is exactly me!! Totally Type-A too. My OB is happy as can be to just keep treating me, but I'm not happy with it. So we'll do whatever he plans next, but I'd like to get the referral to have a Plan B if in 4 months I'm not pregnant.

  • I was really lucky too.  I called immediately after someone cancelled their initial consult and I got in within 2 days.  With my 2nd RE, I waited about a month.  I hope you are knocked up beforehand and never have to step foot in an REs office.

  • I got in really quick, like a week I think.  But, we are completely oop, so insurance didn't factor in at all.

    TTC #2 since 11.08,

    BFP 5.30.11 Missed MC 6.22.11 D&C 6.24.11 at 11weeks,

  • Wow, I guess I am lucky--with the first RE I had a day in mind, less than 1 month ahead, that I got.  With the new RE I am switching to I got an appt 3 weeks out.
    After more than a year, 1 IUI, 1 m/c, then acupuncture/TCM = natural cycle BFP on 12/5/11!

  • First RE appt it was 2 months out and I had to go to his other office in Chicago rather than the one by me in the South Suburbs. 

    New RE my appt is Sept.6th, I called at the end of July they had August 23rd but I was out of town on vacation so the next available after that was Sept. 6th. 

     Maybe there will be a cancelation and you will get in earlier.

    Here is to hoping you will just get to cancel because you get your BFP.
