I know that some of you ladies will be able to help me on this. It's about 8:30 at night here right now. Do I count today as CD1 or tomorrow? Proper bleeding now . I have an appt at the doctors on friday so it will be either CD2 or 3 then. Maybe I can get some bloodwork organised for saturday if it is meant to be CD3 that bloodwork is done on. What bloodwork is typically done on CD3 so I can request it? I think it's probably about time that it got checked again.
I would say count cd 1 tomorrow , as I was told anything after 6 or 7 pm you start cd 1 the following day.The blood work that is done on cd 3 are fsh, e2,lh,prolactin and I may have missed some, I just had mine done a few weeks ago and those are the ones I can recall at the moment.I hope this helps.
I would count the first sign of regular bleeding as CD1, so today not tomorrow. This is what is listed on the paperwork my doctor gave me as options for testing and I have done some but not all:
Blood Test and Cultures - HSG - Progesterone Level (done at 7DPO) and I do not see the name of CD3 but I think it was a FSH. It basically measures your progesterone to see what levels you have and anything below a 10 is supposed to be ok. (((HUGS))) Sorry this is still going xoxoxoxoxoxoxo
If I have not gone to bed and fallen asleep yet than I always count the day of red bleeding as CD 1 regardless of the time it starts. You could probably go either way and be fine on the blood work. If in doubt ask your doctor which day you should count for the testing purposes.
Yes my RE says after 730 PM NEXT DAY IS CD 1 but that is because he is all in my period business I would count the moment you got your bleeding as CD 1 so that you can properly say well today is CD 3 i need blood work But Lucy is right CD 3 can technically be done CD 2-4
I probably wouldn't be able to get the bloodwork done until the saturday which would be either CD3 or 4, depending on how you look at it. Should be good either way . My appt is about half an hour before the doctors closes and I don't think they do the bloodwork there. I guess I will find out!
It is basically an infertility doctor that focuses on fertility needs like medications, IUI, or IVF A RE is basically the person you go to because either 1) Many gyno/obs do not specialize in infertility and do not have the equipment to do insemination etcs or 2)it is the doctor your gyno refers you right off the bat. I love love love mine
I am praying that I don't have to go to an OBGYN or an RE and that I can do all of this testing and, if need be, get prescriptions from my GP tbh. At least that is free. I got a heck of a shock when I saw the prices of gynaecologists!!!
