What tests are there?

I've had dodgy cycles for about 4 months, in response to which my GP has done a hormone test and a thyroid test, both of which have come back fine. I'm seeing the gynaecologist next month for a routine check anyway, but my GP has asked him to do an internal scan to check things out while he's that neck of the woods. I had a hysterosalpingogram before DD, so 3.5 years ago.

The GP knows I'm TTC, are there any other tests that would be routine in this circumstance? DP had a sperm count test before DD and that was fine too.

I had an internal scan and a hycosy and blood tests.

I think you will have to have these done again regardless of you having them done 3.5 years ago, same goes for dh SA things can change in that time! How long have you been ttc for?

Good luck!

Sorry, wasn't clear. Only the sperm analysis and hystero were 3.5 years ago, everything else was within the last 3 weeks.

What is a hycosy?

Hycosy is the one where they put dye through your tubes to see if have any blockages, the size and shape of your uterus and if you ovaries are the right size and have eggs! smile

Is that different to a hysterosalpingogram? There was definitely squirting of dye up the business end!

Ah, Nurse Google tells me they're interchangeable terms.

Ah thought they were similar! How long have you been ttc?

About 5 months, then my cycle went haywire. I'm anxious to get on with it as I'm 42, and the random brown staining and pink bleeding have been really frustrating me. Started B complex about 2 weeks ago.

Sorry, am crap at writing today! We started trying 5 months ago, just before my cycle went strange.
