Insurance is so frustrating!  I can’t believe they can’t remove the IUD without a referral, or maybe could they just do it in August when you are due for the pap?  It probably would be longer than 2 months before you know if you can conceive on your own.  I think most ferility clinics say at least a year of trying before you should go there.  Also, I don’t think I would recommend it but I have heard of people removing their IUD on their own.  I would be afraid of hurting yourself though.

Well, it’s nothing compared to the frustrating situation you have..but…

When I went in for my preconception visit, I got the all clear.  Then, I went off the pill, and my body went bonkers.  I had HORRIBLE, long, irregular periods with short cycles.  We figured out I was have hemmoraghic cysts in my ovaries & 2 vitamin deficiencies that needed to be resovled before TTC.  At one point, I heard my doctor order an “infertility panel” and another dr. thought I had PCOS.  I was a swirl of emotions!!!  Luckily, the cyst resolved itself…I took vitamins and got over my deficiencies 6 mos after going off the pill…then the next month got pregnant!  I will sprinkle some of my baby dust your way!!!

@brittanymichelle:some doctor’s offices will do a waitlist where if an appointment opens up early they will call you – can you primary care doctor do this so you can possibly get in to see him/her earlier than august?

You shouldn’t have to tell your work why you need time off for a medical appointment. It’s none of their business!

What about planned parenthood? Could they remove your IUD for you? I REALLY don’t think you can take those out yourself! Ow! Plus, what if he scratches the inside of your walls removing it? yetch.

If you have to take a few hours off work, that’s what sick time is for. Tell your office you have a dr’s appointment, no biggie (ok, if you’re part time, that’s a no go, nevermind!)

and if you have trouble conceiving, i think most places want you to wait a little bit before you pop in. My reproductive endocrinologist wants me in his office if we are actively trying for 6 months and no baby. unfortunately, my insurance doesn’t pay for fertility treatments either, and a coworker had mini-IVF and it was about 8K.

Also, you can ask the dr’s office about being the “first called” for no show/late appointments. I’ve lucked out with a few of those last minute openings (particularly since you’re part time! you could totally make one of these!)
