I am on free health insurance until I'm 21(11 more months) since my husband and I don't have a lot of income, so I saw this as an opportunity to get more blood tests and ultrasounds to figure out what's wrong with me.
Since my hair is still falling out, I want to test for thyroid, testosterone, vitamin d, and whatever else could cause it first before anything else. I also want to test for insulin resistance for the heck of it since a lot of women with PCOS do, right? My last tests I'm not in a rush to do would be seeing if I had endometriosis since I get bad pain before period starting from 5dpo until period arrives(is that a lap to check for it?) and I also get pain in my belly button a couple days before period arrives so I thought it was a hernia that I feel when I am bloated(don't know how to diagnose that). Yeah, I have serious issues with my body. lol
Anyways it's confusing because I'm not sure if I want to go to a regular family doctor/general doctor, whatever they call it. Does an endocrinologist run all those tests, what would be the best thing to do since I have a variety of issues?
I'm staying away from treating infertility because they don't cover that, so I'll have to wait for an hsg to check tubes. The only fertility treatment in the next month is my husbands SA, so if anyone could tell me who to go to for that, that'd be awesome.
My PCOS b/w and u/s came back normal September of last year, I think because they didn't do it on CD3 as usual, so do any of the tests I want run on me require me to be CD3, or can I have them anytime in my cycle?
Sorry for so many questions, there is a huge book of doctors available to me, so I'm overwhelmed at what is best for my situation or what way to go.
