Doing OOT monitoring with Check and getting really frustrated

Hi ladies - it's been a while.

I went to see Dr. Check on Feb. 23, and he put me on Estinyl. I've been getting b/w done literally every week since, and it seems as though every week, I have the same problem: Either my local lab doesn't receive the faxed prescription from Check's office (even though I always call and ask for it the day before), or Check's office will call the afternoon of the b/w and say they didn't get the results from my local lab. This results in about five back and forth phone calls, and a lot a stress. To top it off, my E2 is not rising - at all. Background:

When I went to see Dr. Check for the first time, my FSH was a record 99. Yikes! Since then, it has been dropping steadily, but my E2 has never risen above 40. Last week's numbers:

FSH: 18.9
E2: 40.4
LH: 9.7
P: 0.4

I'm just getting really frustrated both with the constant issues with the labs and nurses and with the lack of results. At this point, I just feel like giving up.

Can anyone offer advice? Thank you!
