Help! Need your advice

I have a sheet of paper that shows what medication I need to take. I just realized I didn't take my morning dose of Estr.ace. Sh*t. It took it immediately at 9:00 p.m. I did notice some slight spotting (mostly in the form of cervical mucus) earlier today. I will take the evening dose when I go to bed. 

Did I totally Eff up? (yes)

Should I shove one up the va-jj for good measure?

I don't want to call the clinic or the on-call doc with such a dumb question...

Thoughts? Need your help, guys!!!

Hi - I am delurking to hopefully give you some ressurance. I did the same thing during my FET. I am currently 21 weeks pregnant. I took it as soon as I remembered. You could always call the doctor on call, if it will make you feel better. Good luck!!! Glad to hear the great fertilzation report!

You should be fine (not that my assurance will make you feel better)! You did exactly what they usually recommend.

Jem - NEVER feel stupid about calling the Doctor on call for a quick question. That is why you (or your insurance or both) pay them the big bucks!!!

It is your right to call your physician for help. It is their job to answer even stupid questions after hours. With all the complicated tricks you are doing (see soup recipe), it is important to know if burning the garlic is a major deal or more like a guideline. It's only 9pm, you wouldn't wake the doc anyway. Besides, it is possible that the service would call you back with the answer and the Doc could return to whatever she/he was doing.

I say shove it up there-it can't hurt and it could help! I'm all for self-medicating though! I'm sure you didn't eff up silly. :)

I missed mine a couple of times and it never did any harm. But don't hesitate to call the doctor to reassurance. Like Poppet said, that is what they get paid for!

Don't know about Estrace but I was late taking my Endometrin and the nurse said I'm fine. She said some docs only schedule patients to take it once a day so if you're taking it twice a day and forget then you're still good.

I also had spotting issues and after trial and error I found that if you don't stick it ALL the way up there then the spotting goes away. I hear it can irritate the cervix.

Call the damn doctor already! You should NOT be embarrassed about questions, and you are the client! Don't forget how much you are paying this guy...good luck!

I forgot to take mine once and e-mailed Dr. Lovely and he told me no problem - they're like vitamins - what you've done and plan to do sounds perfect...you have not screwed up - it has stayed in your system and everything is fine, and I'm sure your doctor will tell you the same thing. Wishing you well!

I hope you were able to get in touch with the doc and get some peace of mind.
You'll be ok!!

CALL!!!!!!!!!
Geeze you are paying them up the butt, don't feel badly one bit. That is exactly why they have on call docs. I would have called my RE personally on his cell the minute I realized about it (but he is cool like that). CALL THE CLINIC!

christine said...

Oh, I hope you were able to figure it out! If it had been me, I would have called the doc. I'll bet missing one dose wouldn't be the hugest deal! Hoping you get your BFP!
