I know it's frowned upon to start a AW thread, but this board has been so dead lately I didn't think I'd get much feedback if I posted in my super lame Weekly Chat thread. I had scheduled an appointment for this afternoon to meet with an OB to ask questions about TTC. I specifically wanted to ask about Zika since we visited a country on the Zika list a month ago.
I also was concerned about my period being irregular since I stopped BC in December - I got it in January and February, but then nothing since February 10 up until the last few days when I've had some spotting. So 70-some days without a period. I thought that she would just prescribe me something to get my period going again, but she seemed way more concerned about it than I was. She ordered a bunch of bloodwork to test my "egg-making hormones" (her words), and she also requested a test for Zika. So now Zika is less of a concern since it's apparently really easy to just request a blood test (from my research it seemed more difficult).
She also ordered that I schedule a transvaginal ultrasound at the hospital to check for any other issues that might be causing irregular periods, like an ovarian cyst. I felt like it was all just a lot at once, especially since we haven't started TTC yet and I've only been off of BC for 5 months. I told her that we were thinking of waiting until May/June to start, but she recommended starting immediately because "your fertility tanks at 27" (I'm 26 now - again, her words).
Thoughts?? I'm just a little overwhelmed because I didn't expect her to be so concerned or to have any sort of tests done until we'd been trying for a year. Should I schedule the ultrasound or is that overkill? Thanks ladies
