So we moved to Iowa. It took me a few months to feel comfortable driving in the 4 feet of snow, and to find a doctor. I decided to go with a Certified Nurse Midwife (CNM) that worked at a local OBGYN office. I went in to see her and thought she was nice enough, she didn’t spend a whole lot of time with me, and the appointment seemed almost rushed. She prescribed me my first round of Clomid to take with my next cycle.
So Brian was able to take me with him on a work-trip to Michigan. It was nice to finally be able to GO with him instead of waiting at home for him. Well lo and behold I started my cycle while we were there. So I had to have the CNM call the prescription into a pharmacy in Michigan. By the time I went to pick up the prescription my period had stopped. And the next day it started again, and then stopped again. I called the CNM and finally was able to talk to HER and not her nurse. She basically said in a very exasperated voice “You are no longer my patient, I don’t know what else to do with you. You can see someone else in our office” I was FLOORED. After one cycle she’s going to give up on me? Needless to say, I was shocked. But stupidly went to see another doctor in her office – this time a fertility specialist.
So we went to see Doctor #2. He wanted to do all his own tests and ultrasounds – so we went along with it. During the ultrasound he saw some fluid on the right Fallopian tube, and said the left one looked to be in pretty bad shape. His suggestion? Go have surgery and cut them both out and try having a family another way. Needless to say we needed another opinion/option.
Be watching for part 4 coming soon.
Make it a GRATE day!
