So, looks like this Saturday will be CD3 since AF showed early this AM. I called and got my appt for the CD3 blood tests and the ovary ultrasound for that day. They are also going to do the fasting blood work that morning as well. And my husband will be coming with me for his tests too. Since we moved, we are now about 1.5 hours away from the fertility center so they are trying to schedule as many tests in one day as possible to make it easier for us, so that's good. On Saturday, we will then schedule the rest of the tests for next week.

Then I had to call a different place to schedule the HSG, which will be on CD8, next Thursday the 25th. They said to make sure I have a driver with me and that I'm not spotting... usually AF is done by then but what if I am still spotting? I asked her if I would need to cancel. She said I would need to talk to a tech about that. So hopefully I'm not spotting still by then!

Well, I will keep y'all posted as I get more info. I'm not feeling as stressed about the testing anymore. Now I just want to get it over with! But it is an awful lot to think about ....

Good luck with all the tests. When I had my HSG done, I had absolutely no cramping or anything else, so it isn't always painful. My suggestion is to take a few Tylenol before the procedure. I hope that you get some form of answers after all of the testing!

Wow, I have my HSG scheduled for Monday, and they didn't say anything about spotting or having a driver. They mentioned tylenol, but that's it. Now I'm concerned...

Thanks everyone!

For those unfamiliar with these tests, the CD3 labs will evaluate ovarian reserve to determine the quality of eggs and will include E2, P4, LH, FSH & HCG. The Ultrasound done that day will check for any abnormalities with the ovaries and/or uterus and also determine the number of antral follicles (eggs) I have.

The HSG is a Hysterosalphingogram is an X-ray to see if fallopian tubes are open and can also determine any abnormalities with the uterus. A dye is injected through the cervix and flows through the uterine cavity and throughout the tubes.

Rachel ~ that's reassuring for sure! I was starting to get nervous maybe it is extra painful!

Mel ~ I'm pretty sure their biggest concern is an allergic reaction to the dye. They must have had it happen to somebody or something. And then if there is an allergic reaction, they give you Benadryl, which makes you drowsy so they don't want you driving.

I will keep y'all posted! I'm nervous!
