It looks like this cycle is failure again. It is my 11th, I have charted the whole time and our timing of BD is always good. I saw a GYN two months ago and she had me get blood work (estradiol, progesterone, LH, thyroid) and an HSG done. Everything came back normal. Hubby's SA was good. My doctor told me to come back in 4-6 months if I'm not pregnant. I do really like my doc and didn't mind that stance at the time but now feel very frustrated. I have age on my side at 25 years old. So I'm wondering if it's time to at least try to make an appointment with an RE (as I realize it can take some time to get in with one).
Heightening my emotional reaction to all of this is my coworker who got pregnant her first month trying (my 7th trying). Just yesterday she was complaining about how miserable she is at just 16 weeks pregnant. She knows I'm TTC and knows for approximately how long.
I live in Southern Cali - actually the High Desert. Unfortunately the closest RE is roughly an hour drive away from my home. There's three, each covered by my insurance, at approximately the same distance. Is there any chance that anyone here has had some experience with these doctors: Dr Bert Davidson (Upland, CA), Dr Paul Magarelli (Corona, CA) or Dr Clifford Walters (Loma Linda, CA)?
Or if someone could point someplace where I could find some more information about these doctors? I'd hate to make an appointment, drive all the way down there and then have a lousy experience.
Also should I to call my GYN's office to let them know what I'm thinking and to see who they'd recommend? (I have a PPO so a referral isn't required.)
Thanks for any help anyone can give me. (And especially if you managed to read this entire thing!)
