We decided after three months of trying on our own at home to go to a doctor. Our hope was to inseminate with the doctor for month four but the clinic scheduled us with the wrong doctor. We had to make a new appointment, met with the doctor, and hoped to inseminate with her for month five. She was out of town when I ovulated and the clinic couldn’t make it work with another doctor (they have three doctors who inseminate – ours and another were out of town, the third was in surgery the day I needed to schedule). I got a positive on the ovulation kit today so called the office – they are closed. They are not supposed to be closed but it snowed last night and is still snowing. In the PNW, that means things are closed. I have called 32 times and gotten the recording or a busy signal each time. They are not open on the weekends so if I don’t talk to them today I can’t schedule an insemination this weekend.
I’m so upset. We’re trying to figure out if we send the sperm back and pay for storage and skip this month or if we go ahead and do it on our own. We have not been successful yet doing it on our own so another one seems like a waste but we also don’t want to skip a month. Our next ovulation is over new years so we already expect problems with the office then. I guess we have today to make the decision and I’ll keep calling but things seem pretty hopeless. If they haven’t answered the last 36 times chances are it isn’t going to happen.
