What test are needed before you start a IUI or IVF treatment?

My husband got an order to get a second sperm count (first was from his urologist, who then refered us to an infertility clinic). I was order an Estradiol/ FSH blood test, and HSG test and I got an ultrasound done Friday. What else is needed before the treatments. What happens if everything comes out normal. The only thing I know is not normal is my partner’s count is only 18 million. Any advice?

I been trying to conceive for the past year. I’m 38yo and on third IUI and will start on Repronex ?

Should I seek IVF or continue 3 more cycles of Repronex? Our infertility is unexplained which means all lab work is normal for my husband as well for me.

Did any of you start Clomid or other fertility drugs before 1 year of trying?

I’ve seen some posters in this forum who have been TTC for less than one year who are already on Clomid. When I called my Dr. after month 6 and month 9 of TTC, he told me he couldn’t refer me to infertility testing or give me meds unless and until we had been trying for 1 year. I was 31 at the time. Just wondering how did those of you who have been TTC less than a year get Clomid or other fertility meds?

Is it possible to be pregnant AND then start taking birth control?

Can a girl start taking birth control if she is ALREADY pregnant?
By the way, this is for a college survey on birth control and people’s accurate knowledge on the subject. My group has divided up and asked different questions concerning BC in different platforms.

how long after you become pregnant does your hair start growing all crazy?

I am currently 11 weeks pregnant with my first. I keep hearing how you grow hair thick and fast. But i have only noticed a normal rate of growing. It might be something dumb to be excited about but that’s a small thing i am excited about compared to having my baby.

I want to get pregnant and I am training for a marathon – should I start trying?

The marathon I am training for is at the end of October, but my husband and I would like to try to get pregnant starting in September. If we get pregnant in the first month, there is a chance that I will be running a marathon while 6 weeks pregnant. Is this stupid? Or does it even matter since the likelihood of getting pregnant on the first try is not that high? I don’t want to give up on the marathon because I have been training for over a year. I would love a doctor’s opinion on this.
I am 30 (almost 31) years old, in genarally good health, and have an extremely regular period. Do you have any advice for me?

How long should a pregnant woman spot for before she should really start getting worried?

I am 6-7 weeks pregnant and I started spotting yesterday morning at 6:30. It is a brownish color and didn’t stop all day. I am still spotting today and I am getting pretty worried something is wrong. The doctor says to keep an eye on it, so they don’t seem to be worried. But as an instinct, I have to be worried! Should I be this worried, or is this normal? I know light spotting is normal, but to go on this long to me is not normal. Has this happened to anyone else? What was the outcome? Thank you.
