    Question about RE consult

    mrs62610 posted:
    Did your RE do an exam during the consult or was it mainly just a discussion of history, treatment and options? I am just curious as my appointment is Tuesday and I want to be prepared.

    Yes, when I went to my RE, we talked about history, options, and treatments that first appointment. He did some b/w to see if there was anything else that could be wrong. DH had to do another SA. It was a lot of information in a matter of a couple of hours. Good luck on Tuesday!
    Me(36), DH(37), 3 rounds clomid, TTC 18 months, 3 IUIs with HCG trigger/clomid BFNs, referred to RE, appointment 3/21, LAP surgery 3/28, sitting out this month b/c of MMR shot

    yes, we are trying again. We are trying nauturally. I don't know how long we will try this. I think only for a couple of months. I am not sure how long it takes for endo to grow back or how aggressive it can be so I don't wnat to take any chances with it.

    I hope you feel better before tuesday! good lukc!

    Fingers crossed for you! I can understand not wanting to mess around. Good luck to you too!

    I am feeling fine today, just a little tired from all the missed sleep. I'm so excited for tomorrow! It's funny, if I told the average person, "I'm excited about going to the dr!" They would think I'm nuts. That's one thing I love about this outlet, everyone understands!

    think every RE is different. at my first RE appt we talked about my medical/infertility/family history and what were doing now. he also ordered a bunch of tests that day, like an anitbody test, glucose intolerance test, etc.. he also did a vaginal u/s to make sure everything was ok and did measurements, so i could start the clomid right away.

    hope this helped some and your RE is helpful
    me(28) DH(28) TTC since 06'. DH's SA~ good. my testosterone is slightly elevated and i have low progesterone, but all other tests came back great. this is my first round of clomid, take CD3-7.

    LOL! It is funny how you tell the normal person "yeah going to the doctor" and they would probably be like" Oh i am sorry, that sucks" but we totally get it and understand how excited you are. I was super excited and nervous about my RE appointment. Good luck and let us know how it goes!

    Thanks for letting me know! From what I am gathering it seems it varies from couple to couple what happens in the first appointment depending on personal history.
