i was amazed with the inefficiency at my obgyn’s office this morning. when i made my appointment two weeks ago, i told the receptionist why i was coming in. this morning, my doctor had no idea. he thought i was there for my annual exam. when he came in, i was sitting in a chair because the woman who had taken my blood pressure told me to wait while she checked to see if i needed to be examined since my period started. he asked me why i wasn’t undressed. sigh.

eventually, he and i sat down and talked and, of course, he said it’s probably an ovulation dysfunction. i would have had blood work done today, but since i had protein powder in my water, it didn’t count as fasting. again, that’s probably something they could have warned me about when i made my appointment. so, tomorrow i will go back to have the lab work done. my doctor said it could be something as simple as starting me back on glucophage, which is supposed to regulate ovulation. or, he said i might have to go on bcp for just a little while to straighten everything out and then start clomid.

either way it definitely sounds good, like there’s something that can be done to fix this. that’s a load off my mind.

    That’s great news, Cady. The glucophage would be the best option (ie. easiest), but lots of women go on Clomid. I think it has some side effects, but nothing you couldn’t handle. I hope your OB’s office gets their stuff together. While I like my OB too, the office is always so busy that they never seem to know what’s going on…they’re a little less than efficient.

    Good luck! I’m so excited that you guys are finally getting some answers!! Hopefully, the fact that your period finally came and that you’ve now got that cool watch will solve the problem!!

    I hope it all works out. I’ve heard some crazy stories about women on clomid. Hope it goes well for you!

    I always feel the same way whenever I go to the drs. office these days. There is no personalization at all. I brought Ava in the other day because she’s had a cough & a cold. The nurse examined her, weighed her, took her temperature, then asked me if we were just there for her check up.

    That appointment did NOT get off to a good start, but it sounds like he’s got some good possible solutions lined up for you. Boo disorganization, yay doctors!
