    Default What questions to ask?

    Hi all,

    I am new here but have been ttc for several years with only one pregnancy that resulted in a miscarriage 5 years ago. Hubby and I have had our first appointment with a fertility specialist and had a million blood tests. Today we return to get the results and most likely make the plan to begin IUI. I was just wondering if there are any questions I should ask? I feel I understand the process fairly well, success rates and we know the costs, is there something else I should know?

    I am both excited and nervous to finally feel like we are being more proactive, I just want to make sure I don't leave the Dr's office kicking myself because I forgot something lol.

    Thanks

    You will always have the chance to ask any of the nurses questions as u will be in contact with them all the time, but just from experience always question things if u feel u don't understand because that's what all the money u pay I'd for,
    Hope u go well. And good luck, the only advise I could give u is always take one step back because although everything on paper may seem good this journey is never what u expect, I've only done icsi and prob the only thing I wish I was told from day one was that for every bit of good news it could be followed by not so good news.
    Fingers crossed this is a nice and quick journey for u xx

    Hi Rtropps,


    Thanks for the good advice. I have now learnt this lesson

    We went for our appointment all ready to get started and got thrown a bit when we had to have some more testing done. It was good to finally get some answers but frustrating to have to wait for further results. I guess I will have to become more patient throughout this process and not think too far forward, just take it as it comes.

    Good luck to you too

    Thanks good, the more info and testing they do is better for u both in the long run, so many times clinics just jump into ivf icsi or what ever without needing or testing other avenues, I was not tested for anything and over 30,000 dollars later they r wanting to look at things that should have been tested 12 months ago xx
