So, we heard back from PPVI today. The SA results were good. So, there will be no ferraris. :) I am still waiting to hear back from my question as to how these results compare to his results from 2 years ago. We're curious because he has taken so many vitamins and herbs that are supposed to help. They didn't test for morphology or DNA fragmentation, so I still don't know if that has improved. The last test was dismal in those areas. But, I guess Dr. H doesn't bother with those matters as long as the count and motility are fine.
I had also asked whether I had to have a blood draw every month because the blood drawing lady said I was getting scar tissue in my veins. Dr. H said he has never heard of that, and some patients have twice a month draws. So, I am going to go back and tell the blood drawing lady that, and ask for a butterfly needle. I think I will also start going in the morning, rather than the afternoon, so I don't get stuck with a tired nurse who's just ready to go home.
I also asked Dr. H about Ativan. Someone else had posted recently that their doctor ordered that. Well, he says he doesn't think it is a good idea and that there are other ways to deal with stress. Yeah, I know, but come on. I have deep-seated, part of my personality stress. I am just a tense woman. I think nothing short of sitting on a beach all day drinking margaritas would get rid of all my stress. Sigh. I guess I will eat more chocolate to counteract any cortisol that my brain releases. :)
Maybe this will be the month. My mother in law told me yesterday that she had a dream a couple of days ago that I was expecting. I hope her dreams are prophetic!
