IUI #3 cancelled

To make it easier I am just going to copy the email that was sent to me by my RE yesterday:

Hi Sarah,

Your estradiol level dropped from 709 to 450. Your right ovary shows 17,16 x2,14,13 x2,12 x2,10mm follicles. The left ovary shows 18, 17, 15, 14, 13 x3, 12 mm follicles. The doctor said studies have shown when the estradiol level drop pregnancy rates are lower in IVF patients and he can only assume the same for ovulation induction patients. So that being said you can take your ovidrel tonight but he recommends no IUI this cycle due to cost. Instead plan for relations tomorrow and Wednesday night, and return for Progesterone level 10/26/10. There is still a chance for pregnancy and we wish you success. Call if you have questions.

I am disappointed. I am upset. I have a bruise on my stomach that is a waste of time. We are changing doctors for a few reasons:

1. Found one MUCH closer in Dearborn
2. They have monitoring in the morning that begins earlier
3. My current RE won't give me explanations of why things keep going wrong. (They just keep saying I'm young so I have time)
4. I want a doctor that will be more aggressive with my treatment or run more tests to see why things keep going wrong

So we've made an appointment with the new Re at Dr. M's office on the 28th of October.

Bummer. Sorry to hear that Sarah. I think it's strange that your doctor sends emails. My doctor either calls or has his RNP or lead nurse call for all test results. That way I can ask as many questions as I want. Good luck with your new doctor. I had my first RE appointment with the Oakwood office that is part of the practice you posted. I only had one appointment and then we moved. Let me know how you like them! I hope you have amazing luck with the new doc!
