Gotta Be Proactive

So the biggest thing I've learned since being up here is that I MUST be more proactive when it comes to my health. I know most doctors hate it when you google and look things up for yourself. But it seems that this is the only way that you can get the right quality care in some cases. I know that with my next pregnancy I will make certain demands. I will DEMAND to be seen immediately. I will DEMAND that they check my progesterone levels (one of the leading cases of miscarriage in women with PCOS). I will DEMAND that they check be for a clotting disorder (another leading cause of miscarriage with PCOS). You have to look out for yourself because no one else is going to do it. Please, please take my advice. Do your research... know what questions to ask, don't go in blind. I knew both of these things could cause me to miscarriage but I was scared to speak up.. I was scared to make demands and look where it got me?

  1. I know exactly what you mean. My husband is going with me to my next IF appointment and we're bringing a list of things we want to talk about with our RE because I have repeatedly been denied testing that is routine at most places. Gotta love military doctors! I'm so sorry for your loss.


I would love to hear what you have to say!
