We had our appointment yesterday with the reproductive endocrinologist. On a positive note, we liked her. She explained things really well, even though it was information overload, and I’m not sure I grasped everything that was being said.
She ordered more blood work and another appointment for a saline ultrasound for a more detailed examination. We’ll go back within the next two to three weeks for all of those results and to consider further testing to possibly include a bone density scan and an MRI to check out my pituitary gland.
In short, this is what we know or at least suspect so far. For someone my age, I should have 7-10 follicles between my two ovaries. I have just one. The FSH hormone in my brain, which should be between 3-10, is around 78. My brain is telling my ovaries what to do, but they are not responding, nor are there many eggs to send out anyway.
