Honey, run don’t walk to the Fertility Specialist! This doctor is doing nothing for you. It sounds like you are the one researching, ordering your own tests, and arguing with her to take you seriously. A fertility specialist will take you seriously! Also, she is in the business of providing a service, not your a high school student, so its not like you’re gossiping on facebook, you’re reviewing a business!

@Peffy:  The woman sounds ignorant concerning fertility. Based on your situation,  I would skip the urologist and go to the fertility specialist.

@Peffy:  OMG, go to the RE and stop seeing this woman ASAP.  It astounds me when DOCTORS are so uninformed, and this is her field!  She really thought that you’ll start producing progesterone even if you haven’t ovulated yet?  Wow.  Yeah, I’d just skip right to seeing the RE, especially if insurance won’t even cover the urologist (and it doesn’t sound like that visit would be all that productive anyways).  I’m sorry you’re having such a hard time – at this point, I wouldn’t waste any more time, I’d try to get in right away with whoever I think would be most helpful.

I’d go straight to the RE. I can’t believe how unprofessional that OB/GYN was!

Wow.  I’m so sorry you aren’t getting the care, respect, and attention you should be.  I would absolutely change doctors.  I hope the RE is more helpful 🙂

@Peffy:  This is unreal! I probably wouldn’t have even lasted that long because I’m so impatient with stupid people. I don’t care that you’re a Dr, stupid people are stupid people. So sorry you had to waste all that time and breath on her. Time to move on! I really hope you get the answers you’re looking for with a RE

@Peffy:  omg I am angry for you! How unprofessional! Go straight to the RE, you will get helpful advice there. That woman should be out of business.

@Peffy:  Your doctor is stupid!! Just go straight to the RE!

Also, are you sure your insurance won’t cover the urologist? Maybe you can do an appointment with both the RE and urologist. You stated that your insurance won’t cover infertility, but shouldn’t an appointment with an urologist fall into a diagnostic/consultaion category?

Best of luck!

@Peffy:  I’m sorry you had to deal with a rude person. I hope you get some answers soon!
