I have this running in chat, but thought it might make more sense here too.
So my DW and I are wanting to increase our family (already have a teenager from previous relationship) and I've been trying to get myself pregnancy ready with diet/supplements and general fitness....mixed success with thatbut just thought at 35, I should try to increase my chances wherever I can.
Anyway, we're going to start with at home insemination, but I wanted a fertility test beforehand, as this route might be a waste of money if the results aren't good.
We're going to a private clinic and I shall be having the internal scan, followed by blood tests and then a consultation with a consultant to go through the results 🤞🤞
I was just excited when I booked, but now it's getting closer, I'm becoming increasingly nervous. Mainly about the results, but also the scan.
I have actually had a couple before for irregular bleeding and they weren't uncomfortable, but neither were smear tests for me back then, but the last 3 smears I've had, have been almost unbearable, so I'm worried my body has changed over time and so maybe I'll also find this exam painful too. I know it's a different procedure, but still.
Would be great to hear from any of you who have had the same investigations. Would really appreciate hearing any advice and experiences.
On the Mumsnet Donor Conception forum, you can discuss sperm and egg donation with people in the same situation.
