I had to go back to my OBGYN last night to discuss the results of my 3 day blood work (see post from about a week ago from me). My DH came, which really made me happy since he missed the first meeting. My OBGYN was much more sympathetic than he was last time - he was not so pushy about IVF & IUI - not that he didn't discuss those options, but he was very light on the subject. My DH & I are not looking to do either of those, DH believes that if it was meant to be, it will happen & he does not want me taking any drugs to get prego.
The Dr told me that he did not like my Estradiol 56 combined with my LH or FSH (can't remember now) My LH was 6.1 & FSH 7.4. He said that the 56 is high for 3 days into my period. He said combined those two numbers can mean that I am teetering on being infertile. He referred me to an RE - the same one PP mentioned - Dr. Miguel Damian & he wrote me a script for a hystogram (sp?) The test that they shoot dye into your tubes to make sure you are not blocked.
We did discuss my TSH (thyroid) which is a 3.76 and he said that some Drs may want to medicate me based on that number - but being I am thin, he didn't want to jump into that just yet. He wants the RE to make that call.
I am going to call my insurance company & make sure they will cover me seeing an RE - I have Aetna Freedom Choice plan (which I think is a better plan), but it is an HMO so the $ may have to come out of my pocket first - we shall see. I do beleive this Dr is in my plan - fingers crossed.
DH is going for a SA tomorrow - I know he is not thrilled about doing it, but he is for me.
Gosh, I hope this month is a lucky one & I don't have to do anymore testing
