- The blood tests confirmed what the Abington specialist said: I have PCOS (though the vaginal ultrasound I had a year and a half ago painted a pretty sure picture of that).
- The PAP smear he ran came back a-okay (I hadn't had one in two years, so since I was there he ran it). Can I just say: it's so wonderful that gone are the days of the metal speculum! While it's not nearly a pleasurable experience now, the plastic speculum is much better. Doesn't the picture of it look like a pelican's beak?
- Turns out I don't have diabetes. I didn't think I did, but there can be a concern with the extra weight I have, so unbeknownst to me Dr. Jerry Garcia ran a test for it. It came back negative, so that's a small, "Yay!"
Finally, the pet peeve. I gotta admit, it's a little annoying that they're called "infertility doctors" -- what a negative bummer! Like people already don't know they can't make a baby! Why not flip it onto the positive and call them "fertility doctors" since they are trying to help you be fertile and baby-ful?
