    Default Update~asking OB for testing after 1 loss

    Three or so weeks later and lots of phone calls and complaining~she will order testing to make sure I don't have a clotting disorder and start some hormone testing as well. They called last week and told me about the clotting tests, but I kind of threw a fit to get the hormones. I told them with all the problems I have with my cycles I want the hormones too for MY health AND for the possiblity of another child someday...today her MA called and said she would do the hormones but I would have to wait until AF came as they have to be done on certain days of my cycle...I said, well, good thing you called today then because AF came today. So Monday I'm having blood drawn!!! I called 3 people because I was so excited and after talking to them, knew I had to come here because if anyone understands the importance of this, it's everyone here. I know they say the chances of me having another m/c are slim, but really, I think most of us here know that 'chances' and 'odds' aren't enough to ease our minds. If I get pregnant again, I don't think my mind will be at ease even with testing, but it has to help. I mean what can the testing really hurt, everything is ok, then I know that, something is wrong, maybe it can be fixed, if it's something that can't be fixed, then at least I'll know. And of course the OB office goes on and on about how insurance won't pick up these tests. I tell them I don't care, I'll pay it. I finally said to the MA, 'can you imagine a loss, then another, possibly even a third, then you have some blood drawn and you find out that you could have stopped all of it with a simple freakin needle stick...what would you do, wouldn't it be everything you could think of from the start?' then I told her that I do appreciate all the work that she is doing for me, that it isn't going unnoticed. She called a little more often after all that. Thanks for all your support ladies.

    They also finally told me today that the tissue they sent off for testing was just endo tissue, nothing that could be tested. We thought that was probably the case though because that was just what was there at my checkup. I just don't think it should have taken 3 months to find out. I haven't had a checkup since the day after the gave me the meds to start the m/c. I'm thinking once I have these tests, I may just go find an OB who pays more attention, but it's easier to have this one order the tests now.

    Brilliant!! I am so glad you finally got what you wanted hun. You're so right that you shouldn't have to wait for 3 losses before testing, it's just too painful to be forced into going through that time and time again.
