I went to the doctor today and saw the male doctor in the practice for the first time. It was the first time in my life I have ever seen a male gynecologist and I thought I was going to freak out. He was so funny and informative that he made me feel comfortable almost instantly. After listening to me and my history he decided fairly quickly that I should try another round of clomid.
He also gave me the low-down on all the local hospitals and which was the best one. The one he practices at and conveniently the one I practically live next to, are one in the same. It is also one of the best in the country. Kind of nice when things like that work out.
I also found interesting that he believes after reading all the studies on the link between clomid and cancer, that there isn't one. He thinks that women who take clomid don't ovulate normally and that the link is between the non-normal or lack of ovulation and cancer and not the clomid. So doctors could prescribe a sugar pill and there would be a correlation.
He wrapped up the visit by telling, "now go have fun getting pregnant!" I hope I can.
And since this wouldn't be complete without at least a small dose of crazy, I am completely convinced that if I do get pregnant this cycle it will be with twin girls. Between the clomid and that it runs in my life, it isn't completely out of the realm of possibility.
So people start you praying/chanting/casting/hoping I need lots of it this month!

I see a male ob/gyn. This is the 2nd male ob/gyn I've seen in my life. I haven't ever felt awkward about it, and there's always a female nurse in the room with us.

While I understand that he doesn't have the same parts and so maybe doesn't understand EXACTLY how I'm feeling, I have faith in his knowledge and his bedside manner, and I trust him as completely as any of the female ob/gyns I have ever seen.

I am sending you all the fertility goddesses your way!

Having an understanding doctor with a good sense of humour helps immensely. Now get to work - there's no time to waste! :P
