We had unexplained infertility for years and 9 years later, was surprised with a pregnancy! We were thrilled! I m/c in June 2010. We began TTC and by November 2010, I was pregnant again, but m/c in the 1st trimester as well. I went back to my NP and asked about doing tests (she refers me to an OB to further investigate any fertility issues) and the OB said she doesn't want to see me for a year! So, I had to get proactive as I just want some tests done to inquire about why we 'could' be losing these babies in the first 3 months.
I booked an initial visit with the HD and saw her today. She wants to test me for blood clotting factors and my progesterone levels. That is all that I wanted before but the OB won't even make a referral for me to go onto a Fertility Specialist until next year (unless I wanted to pay the fee to go ahead on my own to set up a consult with one). I figured I would take matters in to my own hands and see what is found out after these 2 initial tests. The HD is very hopeful as she saw all my charting and has all the background info. as well as my past tests from my first 2 pregnancy losses, so at least her looking into this is very encouraging to me!
I get to go see her again next week and she will set up my 2 blood tests and see what they find out! Finally, we are moving forward.
