At this point at work I wear gloves to do an abdominal ultrasound which seems to save me, but then came the infertility and me being the regular recipient of vaginal ultrasounds. Trust me, it is insanely inappropriate to be walking around and itching where I have been exposed.
At my ovulation induction clinic I did okay. I would literally prep the ultrasound probe myself and find the surgilube in the cabinet and use it instead. (I do have the training after all.) I also had my RE trained not to add any extra and we had a good little pattern going on.
So the new IVF clinic must think I am a mad woman. They stand there with the probe in their hand and look at me dumbfounded, like I have asked them to do something sooooo special. Turns out they don't have surgilube. I am seriously spending fifteen thousand dollars and they cant even provide a $1 tube of lube.
So I stopped at the store today and tomorrow is B.Y.O.L. - maybe they will give me a discount. I can hopefully negotiate my price down to 14,999.00.
Yep, that sounds more reasonable.
