Fertility Specialist

I went to an information session last night for women with PCOS. It was geared toward the GLBTQ population. There was a lot of useful information presented, as well as some medical discussion, that was hard to follow. There were 3 doctors and a counsellor on the panel. Two of the three doctors were specialists in fertility and pcos. And the other was a naturopathic practitioner, who also works closely with people who have pcos.
After the presentation and question period were over, I had a chance to speak to one of the fertility specialists. We discussed a little bit about my situation, and she feels that at this time I don't have too much to worry about because the OPKs seem to be working fine for me and that it sounds as though I ovulate pretty regularly.
I told her about the weirdness of this past cycle, and she said that it is probably just an off cycle, and not to worry unless it continues to happen every month.
It was nice to get an expert opinion, and even nicer that she sounded very positive about my situation.
I'll just keep trying. :)

Wow how wonderful to have an expert opinion like that!

How wonderful to have anything like that geared towards the GLBTQ community! Heaven knows that would never happen here in Amish country!!

We're sorry we missed it but Angele was working evenings. Glad it was good. Who was the doctor you spoke to?

Umm, I think her name was Dr.Ellen Greenblatt.
They are planning on having another session, and they are going to email me with the info. I'll let you know when I hear anything.

Aw, I was hoping it was our beloved Dr. Carol Redmond. :)
