Has anyone had this done as part of a fertility work up? We are starting the FET process and my re is recommending this but my ob thinks its overkill. Thoughts?

I had one done before my procedures started and one just before my third IVF. I had a history with polyps so, it was a good thing we did the second one, as they did find some small polyps. I had a D&C to remove them before I started my cycle (and that is the one that I got pg with my son)..

The thing about polyps is that they can act like IUDs and if a cycle goes perfectly, and if you have them and don't know it, they could prevent implantation. Maybe it's overkill, but at this point, overkill isn't a bad thing if it rules out something that could go wrong, right?

Yep, I had one before my IVF and FET. Might be overkill but I think it's pretty standard.

I had one in prep for my FET it was easy easy. Just to check if theres polyps or weird lining issues it wouldn't be a good thing to ge through all the cycle and then cancel for a cyst or something if OBs could do a REs job they would ...
