So we had our consultation at the private clinic and it went ok, although I thought theyd start me on a course of treatment almost straight away and they didnt! We've got to organise HIV and Hepatitis blood tests with our GP, I have to get the hospital to send some missing results to the clinic then I have to ring up on my next Day 1 to organise a blood test for oestrogen and AMH, then after AF for a scan to check that my ovaries are accessible! After that we decide whether to have clomid and IUI or clomid and (he says it in a meercat type accent!) "sex at home!" DH said he didn't feel very encouraged by the appointment and concerned they might keep asking for more money & bleed us dry. I don't know what encouragement he expected! Did he expect the doctor to say even though you refused to start trying for a family until your partner was 38, we can definitely help you to have a baby!!!!!!! I suppose Ive been on this journey a lot longer than he has and maybe its sinking in that you cant pick and choose when you have a family and expect one when it happens to finally be convenient! Im a bit cross with him because I barely got 2 sentences out of him about the appointment all evening! The doctor kept saying how marvellous DHs sperm was as well! All my tests were fine or borderline but he got praised for his one result from a pain-free test! (Maybe male doctors do that to encourage the male partner about treatment?!) Im glad that we are finally on the way to getting some treatment but I cant help feeling unsupported! And I wanted a more relaxed month this time so didnt use OPKs, but I dont know if I ovulated so am feeling a bit annoyed and confused!
