    Hiya ladies

    on my 4th round of clomid, doctor upped the dose this time and has done 21 day blood tests, i was told to ring today to get my results and the doctors secretary has just rang me back to say they had to send off for more results and that my doctor is now on holiday until the new year so i have to ring back then?

    Im so confused, I just wanted to know if I had ovulated, Im on day 33 now and what do I do when the witch gets me? I'll be missing a full month of being able to take clomid or having scans etc???

    :shrug:

    i would no way accept this!! demand you speak to some one else that can help hun. have you enough clomid to be continuing with? If you cant speak to anyone else( hopefully you can!!!) then i would continue with the clomid dose & same days if af arrives that you was last on. Hopefully af wont arrive tho anyway & you get ur BFP!! :) Good luck! xx

    Just rang them back and told them I wanted to speak to someone, apparently they said they sent off for more tests when they got my first lot back so I have to wait, my gaene is on holiday over xmas and new year but his secretary will ring him with the results and then he or she will ring me, I told her Im on day 33 (my usual cycle is 30-33 days?) and if im to start clomid I take it days 2-6, and if I end up missing a month I will be very upset as Im paying for treatment and I shouldnt have to wait a full month (which as we all know feels like a lifetime when your waiting)

    She'll probably just avoid me now thinking Im so kind of blubbering weirdo haha!

    Good for you for being assertive, I completely agree with DancingKaty, give them some hassle! I wouldn't read too much into it, is more likely to be something administratively / technically wrong than bad news in my experience of this kind of stuff!

    Don't know where you are Maggie, but I find that with NHS doctors practicing privately, e.g. couple of clinics each week, the service - and administration - is still very much like the NHS, except that you can get seen quicker and are paying!

    I do, however, feel grateful that have been able to pay.

    Theyve still not even rang me back, Im fuming!! Last I heard they had "technical" problems at the testing lab, and she'd ring me back yesterday afternoon with the results.

    Do they not know how important it is for me to know if Ive ovulated this time??!! (Ive had 3 lots of 50mg Clomid and didnt ovulate so they increased it to 100mg for this month)

    I know im really fortunate to have private health cover and not have to go NHS but surely that means that as Im paying for it, and paying their wages in effect, that they should treat me properly? :cry:

    Sorry about the rant
