    Okay, this is a rant...I apologize in advance...I just can't take this anymore!

    I don't know what it's like in other countries, but in Canada, while we get excellent medical coverage, the process can be difficult. I have to go to a GP, who then refers me to my OBGYN. This can take anywhere from 4-9 months. Then the OBGYN refers me to a fertility specialist, which once again takes months. Now if I need to go back to my OB at any point, I can as long as 6 months hasn't passed since my referral. If it has, I start all over again.

    So, I've been regularly seeing all 3, GP, OB & FS. While my OB & FS are in total agreement on my issues and treatment, my GP is not. I just saw her and she told me that I should not even think about TTC for at least 6 months. SIX MONTHS?!?! Funny because my FS told me just to wait for my embryo pathology results which take about 2 months :dohh: Then she proceeded to tell me that she doesn't think I actually have PCOS and that I should stop taking the Prometrium & Metformin my OB & FS have me on. I told her if I don't have Prometrium I don't get a period at all, and she said that's fine, I should just let my body do what it wants and it will get pregnant when it wants and I shouldn't be trying. :wacko:

    Funny, cuz my OB & FS told me that it's not good for your uterine lining to build up in your system for too long and can cause problems when you get older.

    As for the PCOS, I have every symptom in the book and every time I go to my FS she does an ultrasound on the spot and I have seen all the cysts, my right ovary is covered in them (oddly, the left one is fine)..

    Then again, this is the same GP who told me that maybe it's just not in "God's Plan" for me to have kids and I should just accept it. Then today she told me that she thinks I will have lots of children in the future.

    Of course in my appointment today I started crying because she was telling me things like "this was just a practice pregnancy" and "it wasn't meant to be" so I didn't even really get a chance to argue with her.

    :growlmad:

    At this point, with all the issues I've had I really don't want to have to deal with finding a new GP. I actually did start going to one a while ago, but he was so confused with all of my history that I just didn't bother going back.

    Sorry for the rant, just needed to get that off my chest!

    Oh, and when I told her I had a D&C she said "you mean an abortion." Then she kept on referring to it as an abortion. I know that is the proper medical term, but I don't want to hear it 15 times in a conversation, especially when I am already bawling!!!
