You sincerely hope that your fertility doctor does not have caller ID.
Whether you are cycle monitoring or trying a drug-less fertility treatment, booking that fertility appointment is absolutely critical. You only have a limited time frame to find out the necessary information and meet with your doctor.
WHY IS THE RECEPTIONIST NOT PICKING UP THE PHONE??
You have already called the office 4 times today and left 1 message but no one has called you back. Your heart races; your anxiety increases. How are you supposed to relax when the darn clinic doesn’t call you back? You check the telephone for a dial tone. Yup, nothing’s wrong with the phone. You call again. “Hi, it’s me again. Call me back. You know the number.”
You might try to rationalize that you still have 5 more days to book the appointment. Plenty of time, right? NOPE! What if the doctor can’t see me? What if I miss a cycle? What if I have already ovulated? God help you, if the fertility doctor goes on vacation. How dare the office close during the holidays! How dare the fertility doctor take a break! Our pregnancy depends on that office being open 7 days a week.
Time to call back or better yet, take a short visit to the clinic and hope you are not escorted out by security.
