X-posted in TTCAL...
Not sure where to post this really but I figure you ladies might be able to help me get a grasp of this. I'm starting the process of navigating the medical/insurance system to figure out our next steps with TTC and not sure what kind of doc I should be looking for really. It'll be 2 years in March that we've been trying for #2 (DD was no problem at all) including two first tri losses now.
I already have a hematologist doing the blood clotting disorders testing. I'm interested in doing the rest of the basic RPL panel to rule some stuff out before thinking about TTC again, and also some basic IF testing. I had thought about seeing an RE because I also have had some questionable stuff going on with my thyroid plus have family history of PCOS and Hypothyroid....But have also been told to see a Maternal-Fetal specialist (Perinatologist).
So I'm a bit confused about the pros and cons of each. I have the impression that an RE/fertility specialist is more about *getting you pregnant* come hell or high water, and that's really not what we're interested in at this point. We're not at all looking for fertility meds or procedures (for now at least). I really just want someone who can be thorough in the testing and explaining our options, and then supportive care if/when we ever get pregnant again. Does that make sense? Anyone with experiences or wisdom to share?
