Tomorrow we meet with an RE at a local (well, an hour away) fertility clinic. Holy. I am usually very prepared, and I did fax them about 900 documents, charts, and intake forms last week…but I don’t really know what we are doing there. S does not want invasive stuff right now. I guess we just need to talk to a doctor who specializes in this stuff. I think she should do the dye test, but am not pressuring her. A week from now we will start try #6. We are proceeding without any intervention this time, but I guess we’ll make a plan about next month. At this point I’m pessimistic to the point of *knowing* we will need to utilize this plan.
So I ask you internets with and without REs. What should I expect? What should I ask?
What I know so far is that the very nice front desk woman talked with me on my cell phone (you know how irritating that can be) for well over 10 minutes answering all my questions. This is a GIANT plus for me because I ask a lot of questions. They do treat the gays. They are open 364 days a year (closed only on Christmas day). There are 5 or 6 doctors in the practice. This is all they do…no OBGYNs, no cancer, no baby deliveries.
What else do I want to know? I want to know how aggressive are they with drugs and treatments. Are there any other specific questions I should be prepared to ask about the dye tests, and our next steps?
I’m glad we are going, but I don’t want to have to go at all. Ya know?
