Well, ladies, it was exactly as I feared
We saw our new fertility dr today and he was patronizing and disrespectful. He wasn't interested in my knowledge about my body, he thought charting was too stressful and advised me to stop and, best of all, he thinks our recent m/c was probably due to my nursing my dd and that I should "go home, enjoy my baby and forget about getting pregnant until I'm ready to wean her." WTF?!?! I didn't wait 3 months for this appt to be told that! If I'm here, it means I want to get pg and I'd like him to at least respect that!!
He actually said to me that we should be using birth control until dd weans. He asked if I was willing to wean and I said no. So then he asked if I was willing to use birth control and I said no. He was pretty confused by that ..lol
I mentioned that my research has shown that a connection between trouble getting pg/staying pg and breastfeeding is tenuous at best and very individual. He never once gave me any info on exactly how much I was increasing my risk of m/c by nursing and, of course not, because the info doesn't exist!!
I asked about progesterone and he said that he thinks my taking progesterone during my pregnancy with dd had nothing to do with the fact that that is the only one of my 3 pregnancies to result in an actual baby. He told me he would prescribe me progesterone but thought it would only be a placebo for my peace of mind.
Oh, my, it was awful. I felt dismissed and that he was saying "okay, crazy lady...whatever!" The last time I felt this way was over Christmas when I was pg and knew something was wrong and my dr (another one) kept telling me to relax and just enjoy being pg! Ummm...yeah, and then we found out it was a blighted ovum....
I'm very upset by this and pissed off, too. Dh says I should be glad he prescribed progesterone because that's all I really wanted but still, I could do without the lifestyle advice because that's all it really amounted to
Okay, vent over...I need some sympathy please. Oh, and if you could manage to be outraged on my behalf, I'd really appreciate that as well
