Something New Every Time

I went to my clinic for my appointment yesterday. Apparently the person I talked to on the phone the previous day put it into the computer as 'check problem' and the receptionist was very concerned when I checked in. She asked me if I was feeling alright and I had to explain to her that my period was late. There wasn't any real problem so to speak. 

When I first walked in I saw a massage chair in the waiting room. I asked the receptionist about it and she said Dr. K has something new every week. I guess a massage in the waiting room is the new thing this week. As I sat there watching someone get a message I couldn't help but think it was a bit strange. I can only imagine if there was a moaner in the chair. How much more uncomfortable and awkward would the waiting room be then?
She asked me if I wanted a complementary massage on my way out but I had to decline. 

So they drew my blood and did an ultrasound. The nurse said she thought she saw post-ovulatory cysts on each of my ovaries, but needed to look at my blood results to be sure. She wrote me a prescription for provera and told me to take it unless they called. 

They called later to tell me that my hormones were elevated and that I was going to get a period on my own. I didn't need to take the provera. My progesterone was at 9, my LH was at 10.25, and my estradiol was 238. Unfortunately my HCG was <0.5. 

The thing I don't understand is that I had a positive ovulation test on the night of the 11th and the morning of the 12th. That was 17/16 days ago. I'm not sure what is going on but I wish I had used the tests beyond the positive. Maybe there was another surge? Who the heck knows. 


  1. Massage chair sounds like a great idea... thinking of you xoxo

  2. People moan in massage chairs? Crikey!

    Hope you're ok and find out what's going on soon.

  3. I have had the pleasure of testing the massage chairs at a local mall and had a moaner next to me who kept feeding the machine. AWKWARD!!! LOL!!
