Just got the call back from my RE’s office. I’m not sure what the person’s position is, but I don’t like what she is telling me. She said the blood work showed that I did not ovulate (duh!) and that she wants me to wait another two weeks to see if my period shows up and then they will make sure I am not pregnant again and give me the provera then. I was like what?? I already waited two weeks and had two blood tests that show that I’m not pregnant, why do I need to wait another two weeks? She said well I haven’t ovulated yet so they want to wait and see if I do or something. So I said this will be like a natural cycle and she said yes. I told her I don’t understand why they won’t just give me the provera now because my period may go absent for a while, and she answers well thats why we only make you wait two additional weeks. She said that I am on day 14. I was like how am I on day 14 if I never had a day one with a full flow? She said that they count day one as the day that I stop my progesterone. I guess I understand now what she meant in days waiting, I was thinking she was saying day 14 of my cycle, and that is not CD 1. I was really stating my ground and giving her push back which I could tell was kind of annoying her. She just wanted me to take my information and then hang up. I told her I apologize for being difficult, but I’m just trying to figure this out and understand it and that they have given me provera before to bring on my period after a cycle did not work. She didn’t say anything to that. So then she goes in my file to investigate that they truely did this and then her computer froze so she has to call me back. Gah. Let’s see what she comes back with.
Just got the call back. They think that my spotting might have been my period, but it wasn’t a very good flow. They said my estrogen was really low which is what buffs up my lining so that might be why. They said that they are going to put me on birth controls for three weeks and then I can call them when I get my period with a full flow. I asked what the difference is between going on birth control versus just provera and they said they wanted me to have more estrogen, which will give me more flow, a true cycle. That makes me feel a little bit better. I mean I hate that I have to wait another three weeks. However, I understand a little better that they are buffing up my lining. It means I don’t have to wait two weeks to do something (to get provera), then another ten days till I can wait to get my period and then possibly two more weeks till I actually got af like they were saying before. Still sucky, but I can deal. I’ll have to find fun things to do to make the time go by. Maybe going on bc pills will regulate my hormones and make the next cycle kick ass. Who knows. I’m just trying to have a positive outlook.
