Last cycle was only 18 days and I have my suspicions why it was so short.
- I have crappy eggs that have endo defects and bad mitrochondria ----OR-----
- it was because The RE office scheduled my SIS for just after ovulation making implantation impossible.
I did tell the male receptionist that I had ovulated on Sunday when I went in to make sure I had instructions on the next day Monday. I had done the blood work at the lab. They figured that an HCG test would sufficient. I beg to differ. Had they done a progesterone test they might have noticed it was on the rise already and quite possibly have elected to do the SIS next cycle during the days 5-8 it was supposed to be done.
Not at CD 10!
At CD 12 my progesterone was already 13.13. Had they checked it at CD 9 it might have shown the rise that would have moved the test date.
Had they listened to me at test day, CD 10 when I told them I was bleeding and deferred testing for another cycle I might not have been in such pain from the SIS.
Had Major S actually paid attention to what she was doing and not gotten all up in my face after things might have gone a bit differently.
Right now I have no trust or faith in my RE office and these are the medical personnel I'll be trusting to coordinate my care with PNW.
Oh the reason why they pushed out the CD 5-8 test for SIS to CD 10 was because they didn't have a slot for me on those days. So much for Lt.Col.B. promising my spouse and I that he would make sure if they had to add a slot one would be added. He might have requested it but his staff ignored his request. My guess is because he isn't in the office but one day a week and this week he wasn't there at all.
Those who follow my blog and do use the same clinic I have a question or two for you....
Have you had problems with scheduling?
Have you had issues with their staff?
Have you had to go back and remind the staff on more than one occasion that they forgot to put in a lab test they said they would put in but you find that when you get to the lab it isn't there?
Have they forgotten to put in your meds and you get to the pharmacy to find out there is nothing there in the system for you after waiting in line for a long time?
I've had all of the above happen to me and I'm wondering if I'm not alone. Let me know. Thanks.
