    Question regarding blood work.

    My Dr wrote me a script to get my test, free test,and sensitive e2 checked,but is this something I should even put thru my insurance? Or should I just go thru a private lab? Not sure about the legalaties, or if I want my insurance carrier to see the results?

    It's fine. That's why you have insurance. Blood work during a cycle would be a different story...

    Ahh, your post was not clear on that. It would depend on the relationship you have with your doctor. If he's aware of what you're doing then sure, if not I'd opt for Discounted Labs or similar if your state allows it.

    We have a pretty good relationship he's not aware of anything I'm doing but he's pretty laid-back I'm more worried about my files being on medical records

    Then there's your answer. Go to a private lab. But is your doctor expecting to see this blood work since he wrote the script?

    I don't think he really cares ,I called and asked his secretary if he could write it for me,and was pretty specific ,about it being test, free test,and e2,he never asked why or anything,I'm more worried about my insurance carrier refusing other meds and blame every thing in my test results, I'm on meds for insomnia, and because of that I'm able to get cialis, because of the possible sides,I don't want them refusing it,because of the results, or maybe I'm over thinking it?

    Can't answer that one. Insurance companies don't automatically get copies of your BW though.
