Really need advice for appt on Friday

Postby starfishj » Tue Jul 24, 2012 7:14 pm

Hi everyone,

First off, I'm sorry this group even exists. Thinking good thoughts for everyone.

We've been ttc #1 for more than a year. I currently have a really pretty triphasic chart, a garbage can full of BFNs (now at 16 dpo) and my first "it's been a year of ttc" appt with my ob/gyn on Friday. I'm looking for advice on what to ask for and expect.

I've been using progesterone after confirmed ovulation since January because of a short luteal phase. My temps on this month's chart are the highest they've ever been and I just can't attribute that to the progesterone for logical reasons. I have plenty of great pg symptoms though that could all be progesterone.

I won't get my period until I stop the progesterone...should I keep taking until the appt and ask for a beta? Could it be possible that my FRER and Dollar Tree tests are still false negative?

I also plan to ask for the test where they put the dye in and make sure everything is clear. DH is prepared to get a sperm test. Anything else that I should be asking for?

I'm 35 and trying to be as proactive as possible.

Thanks for any and all advice! I hope you all get a BFP really soon.

Here are my charts: www.fertilityfriend.com/home/394e13

I'm 16 dpo and can't bring myself to see all the negatives in a row on my chart, so just trust me. :wink:

Thanks for asking. :) I wasn't as bummed about AF after I realized it was great timing to get a day 3 taken the day after my appt. (though I would have preferred to cancel the appt, lol)

Appt went really well and I feel like we're getting down to business.

The rundown:
* Sperm analysis ordered for DH (will be done next Sat)
* Blood tests for me (done today at the lab)
FSH (day 3), Prolactin, Thyroid, Estradiol (day 3) and then one I didn't notice until after I left. On a line next to BVVP (BV-Vaginitis PNL) - that part is typed - she handwrote "c reflex." Not sure what that is.
* HSG scheduled for next Friday. Will be day 9, so perfect timing for this cycle.

It sounded like the next step would be a referral to a fertility specialist, but she wants to see what comes back first.
