One thing I didn’t do when I started on this infertility journey: keeping a file of all my medical records. I have learned that you must be your own advocate and when changing doctors, it doesn’t guarantee they will read all of your history. They are seeing many patients so you must know your history and keep up with everything to ensure you are receiving the care you need.
From your OB/GYN, to Fertility doctor, and many of us will change doctors due to various reasons. Due to my transition from the OB/GYN to 3 fertility specialists, I often asked for my lining history due to thin lining issues, referring to medications I have taken as well as blood test results. And most recently, when following a protocol that we were repeating, my doctor forgot to include the main medication that appeared to help my lining. I could have been on this medication for months and it is likely the cause of my cancelled transfer. My 3rd doctor even recommended I keep all my records in the event something happened to the doctor’s office. He provided an example of a patient he treated that was impacted by Hurricane Katrina. The hospital lost everything and even with the cloud, her records were lost. I have started using a planner and pill box (old school :P) to keep up with my medications and appointments. I have been going through fertility treatments for almost 3 years so I don’t remember everything and it is good you have the records to look back on and reference.
