I would definitely get a second option for something like this!

I would suggest a second opinion too. Get copies of the test results, take them to the new doctor, and see what they say.

With that much money at stake, yes, I’d get a second opinion for sure! I htink most good doctors expect that you will….this is a biggie, and with such a huge diagnosis, I would definitely do your homework.

FWIW, I just had a polypectomy, feel free to pm me if you have questions, etc!

Any time you are uncertain, get a second opinion! No question about it! If you don’t like the second opinion, get a third. If they all say the same thing, they are probably right.

Get a second, even third opinion for things like this!

Definitely get a second opinion. Even if the IUI was $50 bucks, I wouldn’t listen to that.  If you are the one being diagnosed with these issues, why would she not consider meds to help you ovulate.  And why would an IUI help with any of that?  My RE actually indicated that with DHs SA being great, and IUI actually has minimal chance of helping and that IUI is most beneficial for those with less tham optimal SA.

MrsUNClover:  I agree, even if the second opinion ends up confirming the previous doctors’ diagnosis and management plan, at least you’ll feel reassured and less stress that you are being medically mismanaged.

I would definitely get a second opinion in the situation.

MrsUNClover:  what all have you done regarding trying to get pregnant? If you don’t mind my asking. If you do then obviously you don’t have to tell me. Lol

I would get the second opinion! it wouldn’t hurt. Its weird that they wouldn’t give you meds to ovulate. Every doctor is diffferent but my RE said he wouldn’t even think of doing an unmedicated iui and i did ovulate on my own.
