What ?'s should I ask the dr?

Hi all :)

I am going to make a pre-ttc w/ DI apt. However, I do not know exactly what I should ask. I have read everything I have been able to find re: home insemination and my cycle.

One thing I know to ask, that someone here prolly knows too, is that I can't figure out exactly when I ovulate... I didn't do OPK's this last cylce b/c we didn't have the donor yet. However, I have done them in the past and never got a positive. Also, I haven't found a day where I havd had EWCM. This past cycle I checked all that and the cervix was way high w/ creamy/white cm. Then cervix lowered before any EWCM.

I am so confused about all of this!!

Any information/opinions would be greatly appreciated!!!!

Thanks all :)

Are you aware of the clinic's process (who is your contact, when do they start, start injections, etc)? your protocol? all your costs? your responsibilities for meds, etc? there are so many things but these are the first things that come to mind. Good luck!

I would highly recommend an endometrial biopsy.
