Blood Tests during IVF

Can I ask what blood tests you had prior to starting stims / throughout stims?

My clinic have done none aside from AMH and obtaining an old blood report from my NHS clinic dating back to May-Sept last year which I feel is very odd.

None. Just had an hiv test and tsh (at my request) during cycle before.

I'd had an fsh/lh test on cd 3 about 9 months before (including rubella immunity test). And a single progesterone bloods taken about 6 months before ivf?

No shit I have 'unexplained infertility'. Didn't even have an hsg/hycosy.

But I can't complain - my cycle worked!!!

Mine just do screening bloods and an AMH if suspected low ovarian reserve

Thanks both for your replies.

I’m just a little surprised as I haven’t been responding well to the drugs and I had heard of hormones being tested during the cycle.

On CD1 they tested about half a dozen hormonal things including FSH and AMH. Previously I had the HFEA checks (rubella etc) and haemoglobin. Throughout stimms I think I had 2 or 3 blood tests for hormones towards the end of the injections.
