My doctor's office finally called back this morning with the genius response of the day:
"Well, you should go off of the pill if it's causing you pain."
(Or something to that affect. Actually, I think the nurse said he felt "strongly" that I should go off of it.)
Hold up. Will everyone please do me a favor and rewind your brain to the conversation I had with this same doctor less than a month ago. The one where he told me this was my only option to get rid of the cysts?
No. Good-bye. I'm done.
This is RE #2, out the door.
I know what some of you non-IFers are thinking: you are that crazy bitch who switches doctors nonstop.
Actually, that's not true. I've seen the same GP since I was 12. 12! The guy has known me since middle school, through my angst-filled teen years, through college, and my husband is now a patient at the same practice. So no, I'm not a doctor user/abuser.
Unfortunately, infertility has taught me that no one will be your advocate in this journey. No one but yourself.
I made an appointment with an OB-GYN who has experience with infertility and dealing with endo and chronic cysts. This will be OB-GYN #4 since our journey started, and I'm hoping this time is a charm. If not, it's on to the next one.
Because I'm not going to stop fighting until I get what I deserve.
**Oh, and yesterday I started bleeding. On CD 24. I fucking hate my body right now.
