After Cecily blogged about her kick ass trip to 23andMe, I got to thinking about "IT" again. I kind of put "IT" out of my mind after doing some initial research. It's easier to not think about, especially since we're not doing treatments and just winging it. When I did the initial research, I found out 40% of people who test negative, still have "IT". To honest, I haven't even looking into it much, because I am scared. I don't know if I really want to know the big picture.
But, after Cecily's trip, I decided I need to go see a genetic counselor to get the test done. It will probably cost about 5 grand, but I need to do it before we spend more than that with the big infertility guns. So, I called the minor med last week and asked to speak with the doctor who saw us that day. He doesn't work there full time, but they agreed to pass along my phone number and e-mail address. I am hoping he will be able to give me a little bit of insight and direction. I don't want to tell anyone what "IT" is yet, because it is rare and I am sure google will pick it up. So, sorry I'm being so vague. I can say it is about a mutated gene, though. Maybe when I get some more information, I'll indulge.
NYEBoy is none to pleased with the idea of spending the money to get tested, but I assured him I wanted to know and would save the money for it myself. I know he still thinks it's all bullshit, though.
