Response to I think I am still confused--
to be frank, my OB actually never brought up my continues child bearing in "serious" discussion.
If memory serves me I may have offered up that I didn't think I was interested in having more than one children.
At that point it might have been proactive for the doctor to have had a more thorough discussion about the implications of time etc in the decision making process.
But let's be frank, for those who have not struggled to have a child, how often doe doctors ever sit down and have long discussions about how these decisions are made?
They don't. It is too complex a process in my mind's eye for them to arrive at a process that is "correct and acceptable" in doing so.
Like I said, the standard of care seems to be more focused on pregnancy prevention than pregnancy PROMOTION.
I am still asked when going to ALL healthcare providers if I am "pregnant" and what my method of birth control is when seeing my OB-GYN.
Interesting to me that when I go to my OB-GYN to talk about pregnancy and meeting with an RE at the age of 45 she says NOW (just a few months after having a wellness appt where BC is discussed) that the likelihood of a woman my age having a successful pregnancy is not very great at all.
Surely I am NOT the only one that finds it a bit odd,no?
