to make sure I've covered everything to ask the doctor and be sure the doctor do it right.

Typical Tests and Procedures
The types of tests that your RE might want to immediately schedule are:
Cervical Mucus Test??

Ultrasound Exams??

Hormone Tests
Luteinizing Hormone (LH), Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH), Estradiol, Progesterone, Prolactin, Free T3, Free Thyroxine (T4), Total Testosterone, DHEAS, and Androstenedione. Make sure to ask your RE what your levels are, and what is considered the "normal range".

I will ask if these are required.
Hysterosalpinogram (HSG)
Sonohystogram, which might be less costly, as it uses u/s rather than X-ray.
Ask to code it in pelvic pain not infertility cause.

I'm bringing Dh and my former medical files.

What else???

Oh and should I be straight and ask about IVF/ICSI or let him do the decision. I dont want to waste thousands of dollars to do a lot testings then find out "yep you need IVF/ICSI" I'd be like duhhh I knew that all along! I just hope it's a simple fix the low sperm dept.

Age 36 with PCOS, poor ovarian reserve (.197), and blocked left fallopian tube.
We are TTC our 2nd blessing baby.

I'd ask for a repeat SA for your DH to verify the results you got from the last one.

Thank You Jaidynsmum for my gorgeous siggie!
