Help! Does anyone know the reason that you have to use barrier contraception before the catheter test for IVF?
I have a catheter test for IVF on Monday (6 days) before starting long protocol and - Sod's Law yesterday brought abundant amounts of long stretchy clear EWCM - perfect stuff - I haven't seen it like this in years!
I don't know if we should just do it and cancel the IVF until later on.

I would assume it's because it could dislodge an implanting blastocyst if you had conceived. When I had mine they also did a saline scan at the same time, using the catheter to inject saline into the womb and look for any abnormalities.

Thanks for replying. I've decided I won't do it. I'll hold out for IVF and take this as a good sign of fertility incase this round doesn't work and we're trying naturally again.

Good luck with it and take some painkiller beforehand; I found it a bit uncomfortable. All the best for your IVF too.
