Fertility Tests - The Next Step

Hi Peeps,

Just wondering if anybody could onpass some advice? I'm not sure what the steps are with regards to gyna/fertility treatment ie/ in what order do they do what tests? (I have one DS already that was conceived with no real problems however am 39 now)

I've had CD21 tests (the past 2 months have came back as 21 and 23, so not great) and having CD3 tests tomorrow. DH is waiting for an appt for his 'sample'.

My GP has referred me to the NHS fertility clinic. I do have private health care through work but there is no private clinic near me and there are no registered bupa consultants at the NHS fertility clinic.

BUPA have said they will cover the costs of an ultrasounds or investigations (ie/ hysteroscopy, lap & dye etc) at the nearby private gyna clinic.

I guess my question is, should I go and see the gyna consultant (guess I will get an appt quite quickly) and see what they say? They cannot prescribe clomid (for example) but could do any necessary investigations by the time I eventually get an NHS appointment at the fertility clinic?

Does my question even make sense, sorry! Is my GP allowed to refer me to 2 different hospitals?

Thanks in advance, Pie x
