Ok, I feel a little guilty...

I just made an appt with East Coast Fertility. I love my dr., but he is a sole practitioner and I am a little concerned that although he gave me the clomid, told me he would do an IUI next cycle if clomid and trying naturally didnt work this cycle. I kind of feel I need a more aggressive approach.

What do I do about the test results, I mean how do I get a copy of all the results and bring them with me without offending the dr. I guess I just want a second opinion.

BTW, I know that this cycle wasnt successful because although AF hasnt shown yet, my temp dropped this morning below the coverline, so its just a matter of time before she shows.

First of all, don't give up hope Jaimie...that dip could be a late implant. The dip at 6 dpo, could have just represented estrogen surging...or who knows two embryos could be implanting. I also don't believe your coverline is accurate, it could be lower. Don't give up hope until AF shows....

As far as feeling guilty, you shouldn't at all. Ob/gyns do not work well with fertility. Once you get pregnant you will return to him, so he isn't losing a patient, you may just be seeking outside help, so he can deliver your baby :)

Ask to have a copy of your medical files mailed to your home. You don't have to explain yourself, say you want to have a copy. Most Re's will do many of those tests all over again anyway.

Jamie -- First, Congrats on taking that step. I for one was reluctant to admit I might have a problem. But, Dr, Kreiner and his staff are wonderful. You will feel very at ease.

Dr. Kreiner will send a letter to your Dr. asking for the medical records - it is routine. I too felt so guilty, like I was being a traitor to my OB. But oh isn't about him, it's about YOU. I think you will be happy you took this step.... Chat Icon Chat Icon Chat Icon Chat Icon Chat Icon I had asked my OB to send all of my test results to me by fax beforehand anyway, and the nurse did. The Dr. didn't even know about it.

We could even have some LIF TTC GTGs there some mornings lol, as I have run into Diane 2xs!!
