Dr. F-Head called just a few minutes ago. I left a message with her secretary asking for a call about my results (the real reason for my call was to get information about forwarding Co's results to the midwives. They're charging us. Is this normal?? I will definitely pay to get away from this woman, but is it?).

Dr. F-Head: Everything's normal. I told you I would call you if there was a problem.
Me: It is??
Dr. F-Head: Yes. Your FSH is 5.7, anything below 10 is fine for pregnancy.
Me: What about my estradiol?
Her: Oh, that's fine. Below 32.
Me: It is??
Her: Yes. That's all the tests, right?
Me: Uh-huh.


She apparently has no recollection that she called me a week ago to say that "pregnancy may not be an option for you."

But apparently she was wrong, too. I am grateful. But horrified that this woman possesses a medical license. And has seen my cootch.

I think this is something they teach them at med school - that selective amnesia is a self-protection mechanism which helps to maintain their belief in their own god-like powers and unerring judgement. Heaven forbid they should acknowledge the possibility of being wrong, let alone apologise for the distress they caused.
SO pleased to hear all is good with your bits though!

Yay, you're done.

There's a lot to be said for DIY.

What the...? It's weird, I just came to your blog because I read your first "pregnancy may not be an option" post, and I have felt bad since then for not commenting and being supportive. It must have been really hard to hear that new initially. BUT. Now you have this better news, so congratulations on the relief that this brings- even if it was brought by Dr. F-head. What a tool, as my husband would say.

Well, I'm glad to hear it.

Well, you'll be happy to know that I officially cancelled my follow-up OB appointment with Dr. F-head today, since I'm not using her. And I cancelled my ultrascreen at MP, because we're rescheduling at one of the places our MW uses. Hurray for being done with that woman.
