Well, I just made an appt with my GYN for this MONDAY morning.

It will either be my first beta or my first infertility consult/Day 3 FSH blood test, depending...

I'm scared. But I am curious to get to the bottom of what exactly is going on.

Thanks Jeanne, Carolina and Sandy, I will def. KUP.

I am not PG. Temp plummeted this AM and AF is due tomorrow or Sat. :(

I posted this in my 2WW thread, but I am also getting concerned that DH is having some fertility issues due to some medical procedures he had done a couple years ago...so I guess we will have him get checked out too.

Sigh. :(

I am hopeful that somehow we will be able to get PG, but I am just having a hard time digesting that it hasn't happened naturally and quickly like it has for every woman in my family and close circle of friends. It's a bitter pill to swallow. :(

Ask for a day 3 panel (that includes fsh, lh, e2, etc.) and find out what next steps are based on those results. Do they do AMH blood test also? Will you need other tests/ultra sounds etc.


Hopefully you are just pg and won't have to worry 'bout any of that!


fingers crossed...

Thank you so much for the support, chickies!

This is the first consult with my regular OB/GYN, so she may refer me to a specialist. Which tests should I specifically ask for on my consult? I will be on Day 3 if I'm not PG. I know there is that standard FSH test. What else?

I imagine the Dr. will know but...she never even told me to take folic acid (!!!) so who knows what she knows??
