I hope this is fine to post this here...you ladies have more experience with REs though and I have some questions before my appt on Thursday
I've had 9 pg losses. My ob has prescribed prometrium and ld aspirin with my successful pgs in the last 6.5yrs (my last two m/cs were a little over 4yrs ago).
We recently moved and I have new care providers. I went to a cnm for a pre-pg consultation and she gave me a referral to a RE since she's not "qualified to dose and monitor" the meds. She was willing to follow my former dr's protocol the last two cycles until my re appt but they haven't resulted in a pg.
So my questions...
What is usually included in the initial work-up?
Is it likely the re will want to repeat the labwork I've already had done (most of it was ~7yrs ago)?
I'm bfing (2x/day)...will that pose a problem?
Anyone with rpl? What did your testing involve?
Since I have no problems conceiving, only maintaining, will dh have to have testing?
My fear is that even though I know prometrium/aspirin works for me he won't be willing to prescribe it without the *full* gamut of testing. I want to avoid unnecessary diagnostics as much as possible (eg I know structurally my tubes, ovaries, cervix, and uterus are fine since I had a baby 13months ago). Then again I worry he won't be aggressive enough and he'll tell me to come back in 6months or after I have another loss (that actually terrifies me...it's one thing to lose a baby while doing everything you could do but another thing entirely to stand by helplessly doing nothing because your dr didn't feel it was necessary btdt).
I hate going into these things blind, lol. I've been reading online but you all know how that goes...
Thank you for any info
