Congratulations! Good for you for sticking to your guns. It can be very hard to challenge a medical professional like that. Happy and healthy 9 months, mama!

Great post @sit1010:  . I saw my family doctor while TTC as I had very long cycles (like 99 days at their longest) and she pretty much told me I wasn’t ovulating at all (even though I was charting and KNEW i was.. it was just super late). She was 100% convinced I was having annovulatory cycles and that there were likely slim odds of my husband and I conceiving without needing much more help (IUI/IVF). Thankfully after a few more appointments she referred me to a fertility specialist who was much more educated… confirmed i WAS ovulating, just not strong enough since it was taking so long. With 1 round of monitoring, and 1 round of Clomid we got our BFP.

Definitely don’t let doctors convince you that you are wrong, just because they are doctors! I think that fertility is not sometimes their speciality and can really create a lot of stress by not knowing your body as well as you do.

Stick with your gut and do what is best for you.. even if it means switching doctors, multiple appointments and referrals to other doctors who CAN help you.

Good for you OP!!

Congrats! Good luck with your pregnancy 🙂 TTC can be so hard to predict, especially if you are ovulating early or late. Doctors know that, I don’t know why some of them are so stubborn – at least she thanked you for making her redo the test! Haha

Congrats!  Doctors may be really smart people, but they aren’t right 100% of the time.

Congratulations on your pregnancy (despite your doctor!!)!!

The longer I spend on the TTC boards the more evident it is that most GP’s really have no idea what they’re talking about when it comes to fertility. Mine told DH all sorts of nonesense about his swimmers and refused to run bloodtests for genetic problems we know are in our families!
