[quote=EmmaL]Well the nurse called back this morning and said the RE sees no harm in taking meds again tonight and coming back for more bloodwork on Friday (that would be 7 days of stims). He still recommends canceling and regrouping but willing to go another day - what kind of decision is that?? It’s a $800 expense for me to keep going. I want to but I’m not unreasonable. If this cycle has no chance - tell that to me, explain why, and insist on a cancel. I don’t really care for his “whatever” attitude to the situation. I’m not a difficult patient and this is the first time since 2009 (7 iuis, a lap, an ectopic, 7 IVFs) that I have ever questioned any decision they presented me.
Does anyone know what a good or average E2 number is for day 7 for a slow responder? I stimmed 14 days on my first cycle and 12 on my 3rd.
I’m annoyed that they won’t schedule a US. I have to go there for the BW anyway. It only takes 5 minutes. I keep finding accounts of E2 levels not exactly matching up with follicle #s and growth. When cycle #2 was cancelled they at least did a US - that was after 7 days of stims too.
I asked about adding menopur - which I responded to last time - and she said the low does hcg is suppose to do the same thing. Again, what harm is there is switching it up? DH is just as annoyed. He feels we’re getting crappy service - especially since we know RE didn’t read my chart before suggesting micro flare.[/quote]
I would throw a fit tomorrow. If they feel they need to cancel, I would make them do an ultrasound and see how many are developing. Rather than cancel, why not switch to an IUI and have them continuing to monitor, might as well not let the whole thing be a waste? You have a right to demand high service and actually have them pay attention to you.
I had to get kind of cranky with my clinic too. I have always been a big proponent of managing my doctors to manage my health. After I had the miscarriage, and went to start my new cycle, they wanted to put ,me on the same protocol which I didn’t respond well to, I threw a fit and said you told me it wasn’t a good one for me, did you actually read my chart? Then I got them to start changing things up and each time I went I asked questions which resulted in adding a few inexpensive things. I am hoping it pays off when I go in for my first monitoring appt. I would definately demand them to do more than just give you that whatever attitude! Good luck!:grr: :grr: :grr:
