    WAYDTGKU: bleeding

    R/R: I have a lot of cleaning to do today. A LOT.

    CS/Q: Okay, my doctor told me at my annual appointment in April that she'd put in a blood work request that I need to do on CD3, but I can just come in any time in the next six months to do it. Fine. I called just a few minutes ago to confirm I can just stop by, and they said yes, but they said the blood work request says it's ONLY testing progesterone. Isn't CD3 a weird time to only test progesterone? Am I nuts? (@kiki75  ...didn't we just talk about how CD3 is to test more than that?)

  • @doxiemoxie212 We're a little out of my wheelhouse here but I just looked it up on UpToDate and the article said FSH and estradiol level were recommended on day 3. Progesterone at mid luteal phase.

  • @doxiemoxie212 Is he/she just a general OB? Maybe just a brain fart? But a very annoying one. 

    *TW* When I was pregnant I had horrible blood pressure issues so I was told to collect a 24 hour urine to rule out preeclampsia. When I went to drop it off at the office, the nurse laughed at me and told me I did it wrong and all they needed was a urine culture. I told her she was wrong, that doesn't rule out crap, and to page the doctor to clarify. She refused. So I left, went to the hospital, and had them page the OB, who got extremely pissed at the nurse and put the order in for me. *end TW* 

    So the TL;DR version: Be sure to advocate for yourself.

    @fishsticks-n-custard yeah, she's just a general OB... I know doctors are just well educated humans but still UGH

    ETA: nope, just called to confirm, and my doctor said "CD3 to test for progesterone" WTF?

    ETA pt 2: they just called me back and asked if I'm tracking my ovulation. I said yes, and they said they want to also do 7dpo blood work now, which I might be on vacation for so.... great. Yay! sigh.

  • @doxiemoxie212 Will they at least check the FSH and estradiol too at 3 days? It's annoying to have the unnecessary and non diagnostic progesterone but maybe they'll agree to the right tests. Found this link:

  • @fishsticks-n-custard they're only testing progesterone from the 5 phone calls I've had with them today. I mean, whatever, it probably IS related to progesterone given everything going on (mid-cycle spotting, menorrhagia, etc.), but I agree, it's annoying they won't test more. Whatever. Maybe they'll test the progesterone, realize there's an issue but aren't sure what it is, and then I can just keep coming back for blood work over and over and over and over and over because why not.

  • @doxiemoxie212 My most recent CD3 blood work was LH and FSH. (Also TSH bc I'm borderline hypothyroidism-ish.)  Progesterone is usually 7dpo.

    Back when I started IF testing I did HCG, FSH, LH, TSH, Prolactin, AMH, Testosterone.

    Update: My doctor called me back... AGAIN... to say she changed the order to include FSH and estradiol in addition to progesterone, so. I guess now it's normal. But if I hadn't called FIVE TIMES, like, what? Today's blood draw would just have been entirely useless? The fack?

    WAYDTGKU: Witchcraft and magic 

    R/R: I'm at a new chiropractor and he comes in, introduces himself and he's like "I see you're having trouble getting pregnant?" Yes. "Well I have 6 kids between the ages of 30 and my youngest is 2" Awe kids. "I'm going to get you pregnant". Pardon? "Uhh. I mean. Uhh. Hold on" leaves, comes back. "Hi I'm doctor (name). I see you're having trouble getting pregnant. Chiropractic medicine can help with that. Not me, personally"  I laughed for longer than I care to admit.

    I love your new Chiro!! lol

  • @kbamomma33 work, work, work so you can go drinking (er, I mean "boating")! ;)

    @purplg8r awesome job on the run and skipping the sugary drink!  Running is my favorite thing to do...I had really good intentions to go for a run this morning. (I set out my clothes, set my alarm early, but I did not wake up!  There is always tomorrow....)

    @zamora_spin. Your rave made me laugh out loud. Love your dream talking & your H's response. 

    @Dilynne. Your new chiro sounds so personable and hilarious.

    @Pinky917. Good luck with the scan on Sunday.

    WaYDTGKU: charting, was going to start temping again, but we came to the beach and of course I left the bbt at home :neutral:

    R/R: at the beach, so I can't complain!

    cS/Q:  I haven't researched this topic yet, so please don't laugh! Does anyone use coconut oil as a lubricant? (We use it occasionally--warmed up--a massage oil).  I was wondering whether it would be more sperm friendly than other lubricants...whether it could be used in place of pre-seed.

    GtKY:  I'm mobile, so I may have to come back to this challenge once I figure it out! :wink:
