I am looking into both the North Carolina Center for Reproductive Medicine and the University of Salt Lake city Reproductive Center.

It really varies from place to place and person to person. Some places want to do testing before the procedure to be sure you are still fertile. That testing can take a little while depending on what all they want done and where you are in your cycle when they order the tests (since some of the hormonal blood work has to be done on certain days of your cycle).

For me, I asked about it in December, started testing for fertility (including my husband having a SA done), and then just had to wait to get scheduled. I went through the military though, so it took a bit longer because of the way they do it. They called me in April and I was scheduled for my surgery in May.

I believe most people are able to get it done in a much shorter time when they go through the reproductive centers. The best thing you can do is call them and see what they say. Good luck!!
