Initial RE Appointment. Went well!
Today was our initial appointment with our RE at Seattle Reproductive Medicine. I am SO GLAD I chose her. I did a bit of research and she seemed like the best bet for me and my situation. We are also lucky to have super awesome insurance and it covers the diagnostics and 3 cycles of whatever we try.
She did the usual medical history. Quite through of course. After that we discussed what we wanted to do, how I could lose weight (I guess I am a "perfect candidate for weight loss surgery"), some classes and stuff I could take to help, all that jazz.
Did a transvaginal ultrasound to check out my ovaries and uterus. Like I suspected, my lining is pretty thick because I don't have regular cycles. Uterus is good, ovaries confirmed PCOS. She counted 18 follicles on one side and 25 on the other, with no sign of recent activity on the right side.
They drew a lot of blood (which I expected) and once she gets a couple results back she's probably going to give me some Provera to bring on a period so we can do the HSG to make sure my tubes aren't blocked.
DH provided a semen sample for SA. Hopefully we are good there.
Well that is all I can think of right now. I have a follow-up appointment on the 31st.
*update* Nurse called and said that my progesterone levels indicate that I O'd. Yay!
