Blood test results!
The system is you call and the receptionist gives you the results, but because of confidentially they don't get all the nitty gritty. This makes understanding your results a little tricky! She read them out to me: "no further action needed". And that's it, that's all she had! I quizzed her a bit, hoping she might be able to shed some light on it if she knew what the test was, but she was none the wiser. She offered to book me an appointment with the doctor, but that was all she could do. Such a silly system! I appreciate that it's not practical to have doctors take these calls, and that appointments aren't always necessary for results, and that its not down to a receptionist to know all the medical ins and outs..... But a vague answer is just so frustrating!
I opted not to book an appointment just yet. "No further action" suggests that my blood tests came up as normal for a 21 day progesterone test. On that basis I shall assume that I have ovulated this cycle and that at some point in the next couple of weeks I'll either get a visit from Aunt Flow or (eek!) I'll get a BFP. If not..... Well I can always call up and get an appointment.
