and the nurse was mean and irritated and basically said what's the problem and that's the protocol and was really harsh. She said there was no alternative and that I needed to just do it. I said I can't that's why I called you. About 5 minutes of this, and I finally said - Okay, I'll just come by the clinic in the morning then so I can sit down with the doctor and figure something out and hopefully my period won't come before then.
Then she was so annoyed she said she'd call the doctor on call. He just called me back and didn't give me a hard time - just said here's what we're going to do.....
he's calling in a prescription for crinone gel for 2x per day and oral progesterone 3x per day. Not ideal, but I seriously am having an absolutely phobic reaction to the needle. I started sweating and I'm in a/c that is below 70. Whew. Now I just get to be the hysterical, pain in the A** patient. Great.
Whatever. I just had a crying jag over this.
