It's a done deal

Well, as done as it can be at this stage, but I have committed to starting next cycle. So, in two-ish weeks, I should be stabbing myself with wicked glee (evil cackle not included).

I spoke to the nurse in charge of the study, and she said it's just fine to do one cycle, and then do the study for our next cycle (thinking ever positively) if we qualify.

I'm going for the Pap smear tomorrow anyway; that should guarantee that the study nurse has the results in plenty of time for a second cycle. It's good incentive, I haven't had one in a few years. Hey, don't blame me, blame Canada's medical system. Or British Columbia's anyway. Your family doctor is the one who does the smear, not a gynecologist. You don't get a gyn (or "Gank," as my sister says) here unless you need one as a specialist.

Anyway, now I wait for my 'package' to arrive with further instructions. While we wait, and because I'm feeling like a big suck today, I offer this unbelievably cutesy-poo video for your viewing pleasure. Watch it to the end, or you'll miss the best part. And then watch it again, because it's so gosh darn cute.

I've had my GP do my pap smears for years. It's not a challenging procedure. Here you can choose whether to go to the GP or OB/Gyn

I'm hoping you won't be needing to think about that study...

OK, the GP doing the pap smear sounds really odd... Here, either your gyn remembers to offer you one once in a while or you have to remind him... and then you have to carry the test to the lab yourself (which I find weird) & you only get the results if something's wrong (or so I hope, because I never got the results of any of mine...)

Here you can definitely have your GP do pap smears, but most women opt to have their "well-woman" care done with a gyn.

At any rate, I'm glad that it shouldn't be a problem for you to do one cycle outside of the study and follow it up with the study should you need to. Whoo hoo!

I'm such a cynic...at abou the 20-second mark I started saying, "Okay, this is going to end with violence or soomething really gross." And then it's didn't. And I was...disappointed.

*hangs head in shame*
