I went to go see my regular OB last week. Not sure if some of you know my story but I have had 2 early losses in the 18 months we have been TTC. I had gone to a RE and he ordered a ton of pregancy loss tests. Our insurance wouldnt cover any of it. So i had to say no to all the test( it would have been over $5000 worth of tests). So at my recent OB appointment I brought the list of tests to my doc. He said he might be able to get it where insurance would pay since its not coming from an infertility doctor. I decided to take a huge risk and get the tests done (all but the Keryotyping- he couldnt do that). They took 13 vials of blood and hopefully ill have the results soon. Mike( DH) was against doing the tests because of money, but at this point I went against him and did it anyway. I couldnt keep being in the dark if there was something wrong.

It gives me such peace of mind. Ive been so worried that if i got pregnant again the same thing would keep happening. Also there would be no way i would want to proceed in spending money on IUI or IVF if i didnt check first if there was something wrong with me.

I know without the Genetic testing on me or Mike, that could still be the issue, but if i can convience him( Mike) to pay for that then we will get that done soon too.
Ill be sure to keep you girls updated on the results whenever I get them. Not sure how long those tests usually take?

Good luck, I hope the results help you!

The length of time on results depends on whether your local lab can do them or whether they have to be sent away.

Typically I have waited 3-5 days and the tests are done locally. The one time that we needed results right away though, the fertility clinic put a rush on them and we had results in 2 hours.

Thanks ladies!
Its hard to know what to feel. On one hand I dont want there to be anything wrong because it might not be able to be fixed. But if theres nothing wrong then there is no reason for why this is happening. I guess it will be better to know either way.

So glad you're getting the testing done Holly! I had mine done at Quest and had the results in about 3 days. The only one that took really long was the karyotyping (about a month) but I think that's because I had it done about a week before Christmas.

Do you have any coverage for diagnostic stuff? My insurance has zero infertility coverage, but they have covered all of my bloodwork/ultrasounds/hysteroscopy because it is diagnostic, not a treatment....GOOD LUCK!!

That is great news! Its good to know, either way! My tests only took about a week to get back, some took longer but I started getting phone calls after a week as they all came in (I had a WHOLE bunch done, 23 vials of blood if I remember correctly, I know it was in the 20's!)

Cycle #1-9 - All Natural....5BFN's, 4BFP's (all ended in miscarriage)
Cycle #10-11 - Met with first RE, diagnosed with heterzygeous MTHFR mutation & slightly low SA on all counts. -BFN, Cycle #12 - First IUI+Trigger - BFN, Cycle #13 - BFN
Cycle #14-15 - Met with new RE, diagnosed with a blocked right tube that previous RE completely overlooked or didnt care to mention. Soy (120mg) - BFN
Cycle #16 - Clomid (100mg) - BFN, Cycle #17 - Clomid (100mg)+Trigger+IUI - BFN
Cycle #18 - Acupuncture+Clomid (100mg) - BFN
Cycle #19-27 - 2 Soy (160mg) cycles, the rest all natural also 30lbs lost!! - BFN's
Cycle #28 - New RE is GREAT! Put on bcp 7/6/11, Lap surgery 8/1/11- Tubal cyst (5cm) found and removed, Uterine Septum removed, and Stage II-III endo removed. Cycle #29 - All Natural - BFN, Cycle #30 - All Natural - BFN, Cycle#31 - All Natural - BFN, DONE TTC FOR NOW

Good news!! I'm so glad your doctor was able to get them all done! I think I typically waited about 3-4 days and I think some of that was waiting for the doctor to have a chance to look at the results first.
