Thanks kez! I'm hoping so. I have to figure out the name of the lab at some point and I'll call. But since it will cost so much for the new patient stuff for my DH we decided that I will go ahead and do mine first. I plan to call tomorrow to make sure I can get my doctor to just put the order for the tests and not make me pay for an office visit. I shouldn't need it since she's already aware that I've been TTC for 2 years.

Wow I am amazed at the low costs of some of you ladies testing.
I had cd 3 labs (LH, FSH,E2,prolactin, testosterone) and it cost me $800 out of pocket because my worthless insurance will not touch anything infertility related.

OUCH! The tests that I will be doing for $80 is just LH+FSH and prolactin. I'm also doing it with a regular doctor and not a RE (I can't even find one in my town!). I'm not sure that even if I did all the same tests as you and if I didn't have the easy access plan, that it would even cost that much. I guess that it really can depend on area.

I'm also thinking though, that since I go to visit family for Christmas that I might fill them in on the situation and tell them that all I want for Christmas is help paying for tests. I'm not sure that I really want it to be out there for everyone to know that we can't conceive. I will just have to feel it out while I'm there and see.
