You can take your stats and shove them up your ass.

Well that pretty much sums up how I feel about the situation.

What situation?  Well….

I called an RE’s office here in town (I won’t name them because I’m sure outside of my issue they are just fine people) a couple of weeks ago and started the ball rolling with getting in to be seen.  I’ve got some spotting issues that need to be looked at and don’t really want to go the “Clomid Wonderdrug” route.

Lady says, okay we’ll get an appt time set up and I will call later to go over a pre-appt form with you.  Sounds good.  Let’s do it.  She calls.  We talk.  45 minutes into this conversation she asks me:

Do you have any ethical, or religious objections to any treatments or tests that we provide or run?

I said, yes I do.  I have no intention of going beyond drug intervention with monitoring.  I don’t object to semen analysis or Clomid or progesterone or any of that.  I just do not personally feel comfortable with IUI/IVF and things of the like.

Her response?

Well, I’m sorry.  It doesn’t look like you will be able to be seen by this practice.

You could have knocked me over with a feather.  I was too stunned to respond so I just hung up on her.  

Take that!  I give you the dial tone of death as a comeback!
