Your opinion, please?

I made the mistake of going to see a fertility specialist and NOT back to my Napro doctor. I've had two visits with the fertility specialist, he did blood work, saw that my estrogen and progesterone are low, heard my complaints about headaches, and he has done NOTHING for me. Zero. Zip. He made a big deal about how he wanted blood work done on me, but still hasn't prescribed anything for me. Meanwhile I'm still suffering with headaches! He also tried to convince me to try donor eggs claiming he is "doing God's work". I told him "No."

He also did an ultrasound and discovered I have three small fibroids and an endometrioma. He told me I don't need surgery though because he thinks I will be going through menopause soon which will shrink everything.

I have the feeling I need to dump this guy and go back and see my Napro doctor. I feel sad and discouraged like nobody can help me or do anything for me.

I really wish the Napro doctor could help me get pregnant. I am sad about not being able to have a baby. If only I could get rid of this headaches!! I have a super size bottle of "Excedrin Migraine" and have to pop two pills every day!

Do you think I ought to dump the fertility specialist? And go back to the napro doctor? That's what I'm thinking!

You are all in my thoughts and prayers!

May God Bless you!!

yes, go back to the Napro doctor.

BUT first go to your regular doctor for your headaches!!! You shouldn't be having headaches every day!

God bless you Maria

sounds like a thyroid issue. Go to the reg dr.

Go see your regular doctor for the headaches, and then go see your NaPro doctor for the IF stuff.

I'm sorry, I'm not clear - are donor eggs supposed to help the headaches, or the screwy hormone levels? I bet if you had accepted donor eggs, he would have put you on some kind of meds to fix the hormone levels. So he knows how. Maybe you just don't warrant that much energy because you're not buying his most expensive product. Jerk doctor.
