At my first RE appointment they did a basic infertility bloodwork workup and checked my antral follicles with the u/s. We ended up doing a HSG and 3 IUI/Clomid cycles after that, but it seems you are past that. There wasn't really any new tests that were done before we started IVF, but since we had one failed and one cancelled, I had a hysteroscopy and an endo biopsy done. That can be done to check for uterine abnormalities but I'm not sure they would do that off that bat unless they were concerned with uterine problems.

I would say the consultation with the RE and then a teaching class about all the meds/injections. It seems overwhelming at first but once you get into the swing of things and all the shots and everything it becomes pretty routine!

Feel free to ask away any questions you have on the process.
