What's the 411?

I had 2nd opinion consult with a new RE on 8/31/10 and his name is Dr. T. The second opinion consult went really great and I have decided to switch clinics. As much as I don't want to leave my current RE because I adore him (he does all of the monitoring and the IVF cycles are done somewhere else by a different Dr.) I have to do what is best for me. I am transferring the 2 snowbabies we have left to my new clinic, where all of my treatment will be done under one roof. My new clinic even has an acupuncture facility on the premises. After our consult, Dr. T took CD3 blood work from me and I will be on BCP's for 2 months because Dr. T wants to lower my andgrogen levels that can be very high in PCOS women. I will have a hystersocopy and acupuncture consult soon and I will do a Fresh IVF Cycle in November where he will also unthaw my 2 snowbabies, so I don't waste one of my FET's covered under my insurance. In my heart of hearts I feel good about my decision and I am much more comfortable with the level of service I will be getting on a whole.

I'm intrigued that your RE is lowering your androgen levels. What is the reasoning behind this? Since you and I are kind of going through the same thing, I just wanted to hear your back story :)

Good luck with everything, my friend. I thinking and praying for you every day.

Hey SB how are you? My new RE explained to me that high levels of andgrogens and testosterone in PCOS women can compromise egg quality. He feels BCP's does wonders for us PCOS women for a variety of reasons not just TTC ;)

Good luck in November. I'm so happy you're getting more comprehensive care (especially the acupuncture!) I hope November is your cycle for your sticky baby! Looking forward to hearing about the remainder of your journey.
