I went in for my annual pap today.
I have to say, it was very reaffirming of our decision to leave my ob/gyn for my RE during this journey.
I had a doctor from the practice that I had never met before. Which is good I guess, I never told my ob/gyn that I was leaving for an RE... so I feel a little awkward about that whole thing.
My records had not been updated. Apparently they switched their filing system, and since I had not been in, I fell through the cracks. Who knows.
My first clue to this mishap was when she asked,"Are your menstrual cycles normal? Do they come at the same time every month."
Umm, no lady. They stopped coming a long long time ago. Thanks for asking.
So, then I had to fill her in from everything since the first miscarriage. Great, thanks.
As she's giving me the breast exam, she says to me, "Well, don't give up."
I give a meh. Mutter something about two years, and being a little jaded.
She continues on her all knowing spiel. "Don't give up. You know,"
Can you guess where this is going? Really?
Yes. The woman dared to say it, "most people stop trying, and it happens."
Why thank you. Thank you for reaffirming my reason for leaving your clinic.
I've said it once, I'll say it again.
Ob/gyn's know about pregnancy, and cervical paps. They don't know shit about reproduction.
An RE's priority is diagnosis and making babies.
So... I will throw my confidence in the specialist, and not the assvicer.
Thank you very much.
