So I have voiced my concerns to atleast 3 doctors about infertility. I was diagnosed with PCOS whenever I was 15 years old. They said it was a very minor case but I still had a bit of it. Well I was on birth control from ages 15-20. I went off birth control pills here and there from 20-21. Plenty of opportunities to get pregnant, never did. I was off birth control for 3 straight months and my periods were off the wall, so I had to give in and take birth control to get my system going again. Well I went to the doctor before my wedding and they prescribed me Provera to take for 21 days and then let myself off it for a few days to get my period going in order. I went to the doctor previously to see if I had any pituatary gland problems and they drew blood for that and a couple other things and everything came out normal. So now I have to take Provera on the 35th day of my cycle, take a test to see if I’m pregnant (which I dont mind since I am a POAS-aholic) and then take the Provera for a few days to jump start my period. I just took day 4 of Provera and I’ve also taken 2 tests which came out negative. They had me do this because my last cycle before my last doctors visit was 55 days. They told me that it could “just be my body” and I have asked to see if they will do an ultrasound but it keeps getting pushed further and further. I don’t feel like 55 day cycles are “normal”. 35? Sure. 55? Nope. Hopefully in my October appointment they will do an ultrasound to take a peek inside. When I was 15 they did an ultrasound and nothing came up abnormal, but that was almost 8 years ago so things could be a lot different especially being off and on so many different pills.
Maybe I’m just wrong and don’t know how the process works but if a client is concerned I feel like they would say “OK, let’s put your mind at ease OR take the next step if something shows up”. I don’t know why I keep having to get blood drawn and told that it might just “be me”. Irritating.
