What tests should I ask for?
I'm going back to my GYN in the morning and was wondering what all tests I should ask for.
When we first saw him, he wanted my hubby to go for a SA and when that came back bad, he referred us to a Urologist and now that everything has check out with the ur, he referred me back to the Gyn.
I'm figuring bloodwork for a test of my hormones and maybe my thyriod but is there anything else I should ask for?
Also, how early can a beta test be done?
I'm planning on setting up an appointment for an HSG for the 1st week of December.
Thanks in advance for any advise.
Also, I have regular 28 day cycles and I do ovulate.

you can request for the following:
1. transvaginal ultrasound - to check the position and lining of your uterus, and to check the size of your ovaries and if you have follicles.
2. blood work - check for sugar, thyroid tests, PROLACTIN (very important and can play a big part in fertility)
3. physical examination - to check your cervix for any abnormal discharge or infection.
4. also a PAP smear
My first GYN didn't want to do any tests on me because my cycles are very regular. She said that everything is normal. I changed GYN and she recommended the above tests before moving on to fertility drugs, etc. Turned out, i have high prolactin levels and i had an infection in my cervix. Which makes it practically impossible to conceive if untreated.
