It's been over a week since I left a message with my Dr.'s office, and I still haven't received a call back; I'm pretty sure they're avoiding me. I just want to talk to the Dr. and see where we should go from here, but since they aren't responding, I'm taking matters into my own hands.
I explained in my last post our reasoning for not utilizing a reproductive endocrinologist yet, mostly because of distance and expense. But then someone brought to my attention an organization called Sher Institutes with an office in Sacramento that is giving free consultations (valued at $250-$500) to anyone who's interested and books an appointment during this week, which happens to be Infertility Awareness Week. Although it sounded kind of sketchy to me, I figured it wouldn't hurt to call and find out some more information, especially if it's FREE information. The office was really nice and set me up with a consultation over the phone (so I don't have to drive down to Sac) on Monday evening. They have all of my background information and are going to review it over the next few days. I'm still a little leery of this phone consult, but it's free and I'm willing to take the chance. Besides, I did some research and checked them out-they are real-and they may be able to give me some answers, or at least a little guidance. And if they start to freak me out I can always hang up on them, right?
I'm excited to finally talk with an RE, even if it's over the phone. I'll report back next week and let you know how my consult goes. Wish me luck!
