Default New RE

OK, this is CA RE #3 but I REALLY like this one. She has a very small practice like my RE in VA (just her) but she deosn't even have a nurse or a receptionist. The office is very unpretentious, she talks fast, but she actually cares about me as a person and that is HUGE for me. The only negative is that she doesn't take plastic, so I will have to scrape up cash for anything not covered by insurance.

She looked at my records, and said that I had an FSH of 9.1 then all of a sudden six weeks later an FSH of 15. She said it is unusual for it to shoot up that fast. She wants to retest my FSH at my next CD3. I am back on the glucophage, and she said she restest my testosterone since I have been on DHEA.

Now what do you think - I had two days of "streaking" which I thought was AF coming on her own - should I wait a couple of days or go straight to the Provera? She did an u/s and said she saw two old follies on one of my ovaries - would they have been late bloomers from the last injectible cycle?

Oh, and she wants me to lose 25 pounds. I'm going to try SlimFast this time - I did South Beach and I was STARVING all the time!

I'd do the Provera and kick start things if you are way late already...

Glad to hear you like the new DR...can you not get cash advances from your credit card to pay her???

Good Luck!!!

I don't know enough about Provera and those things to really say, but I do think that this RE sounds like an improvement.
Have you tried Atkins to lose some weight? I've been on it since Aug. 1st and I have lost 30 pounds and I'm NEVER hungry. As a matter of fact my appetite is about 1/3 of what it used to be.
Anytime you're hungry, you eat fat or more protein and it makes you satisfied. I have 4 or 5 Macadamia nuts as a snack and they help the fat burning process and satisfy me too!
