Last week I got my period. I will not describe in detail what I found on my pad, except to say that now I know that I probably had an empty sac at the time I was testing for pregnancy. That would explain why my period had failed to show up by day 44. Or was it day 45? I don't remember. All I know is that Dr. Mediocre did not deem it important enough to see me in person, and only told me over the phone to start taking birth control pills that weekend instead of waiting for my period.
Which is actually not so bad. If this was, as I suspect, a blighted ovum, he would have wanted to do a D&C. It's better this way. Almost no pain and, because I had convinced myself that I was never pregnant, not so shocking.
Still, it made me very depressed and made me feel very alone. Nobody I talked to about this seemed to think this was a big deal. After all, I never knew I was pregnant.
I am better now, though still a little bit angry. I need to find another doctor. I'm never going back to Dr. Mediocre.
