There is nothing you can do about it.May 3, 2008
This is what my good friend who is also an OB-GYN said to me today. I called her in tears today to tell her what happened and explaining my worries. She lives very far from me so she can’t say what is wrong with me, she also did not address my breast tenderness or abdominal pressures saying that she did not know why, but her biggest point was this:
But what if I’m not ovulating? There’s nothing you can do about it.
But what I just dont get my period? There’s nothing you can do about it.
What if I never have kids? There’s nothing you can do about it.
She said she is not sure why I should get a progesterone shot to induce a period when that really just means a fake period and doesn’t mean that I ovulated at all. She only recommends that when someone missed their period for several months.
She told me that even if I am irregular. Even if I am not ovulating monthly. I should still wait a year.
She also said something I am bit confused about. She said to fid a doctor and stick with them so they know the whole history of you. I’m confused. I can’t switch doctors until June anyways due to my insurance… but she said that its important not to keep changing doctors. i just don’t know if I should stick with this one though.
This process is exhausting. I fear the road ahead. But I need to take a chill pill because there is nothing I can do about it.
