Blood test results

I had my first lot of tests (after about 1.5 years ttc) last week and just had to phone up today for the results. They said the swab was ok, but I have to go in next week to get my blood test results. Do they normally want to talk about it, or is this an indication that there's a problem? Funnily enough, I got my first opk smiley face the day after the doctor's appointment, so I was hoping they'd all come back ok....anyone else at this stage of waiting?

Who ran the tests? Your GP? Fertility specialist?

I was never given any results over the phone, always face to face.

The only time that was any different was when I used Chlomid and they would alter the dosage, but for regular testing it was face to face, as even if normal they wanted to chat bout what the next step/investigations would be.

Good luck, in some ways I found this time one of the hardest to get my head around, and the investigations a bit daunting.

I now have a DD mo (2nd go at IVF) and I am in the 2ww following a Frozen Embryo Transfer.

If they do find a problem, in some ways that's easier as it might give you something to "fix" iyswim.

Hope you caught the smiley face in time, and this will all be a moot point!

Thanks Blending, it was the Doctor - we're literally at the beginning of it all, so we went to the Doctors for the first time last week and he sent me to the hospital for a blood test. That's reassuring - the receptionist said not to worry but it's hard not too... good point about finding a problem making it easier, I didn't think of it in that way before.

Good luck with your 2ww smile I'm tempted to test a day early on Saturday as it's DH's birthday!

Me too! My Birthday is Monday so tempted to test then rather than Tuesday!

Well no early testing as AF arrived today.Slightly worried as I only had my progesterone (sp?) test 5 days ago, rather than 7 as it should have been (how hard is it to get it on the right day?!). I need to be a bit more disciplined with my opk kits. Hope you get a +ve Blending. x
