I have recently been tested on blood sugar, thyroid and hormonal profile per my reproductive specialist. I am not exactly where I need to be and it is something I am working on. I have lost 20 pounds in the last 4 months or so, but still have about 2 more months to go before my doctor wants a follow-up on these tests to show any improvement. Since losing the weight, my period was regular for the 4 months, but has disappeared again.
My last visit to the specialist suggested that I go on birthcontrol and was told that "fat people don't get pregnant." It was a waste of a visit: My husband dosen't want me on BC because we are trying to conceive and my "fat" sister is pregnant (with twins at that). Should I continue to see this specialist, find a new specailist, or see a regular OB/GYN? Last month I requested a pregnancy test from my regular practitioner and she said that periods are irregular and I don't need one. I just don't know who to see that will lead me in the right direction.
Also, I should note that the severe cramps are in the pelvic area, but I've also been having cramps in the upper and middle abdomen area and also on my sides. It seems to be very sporatic. I've taken doens of HPT and they were all negative, but then again my sister did not show on a HPT at 4 months pregnant.
