So many emotions, only one shared.

I feel as though we may finally be getting somewhere... My period arrived yesterday, Thanks Provera! Today I called and the crap load of blood work is scheduled to be done on Wednesday! I was told Wednesday as one of the tests involves my blood being frozen and sent out and they did not want the weekend to get in the way. I don't remember which test this was... I was asked if anything I specificially wanted so I mentioned TSH, T3, and T4 again. I was also told, this is what I remember, is being tested for... Can you recommend anything else??????

Prolactin
LH
FSH
Thyroid
T3
T4

Protein S
ANA
MTHFR
APA
Lupus something or another (Auto immune disorders)

No fear. I did ask for a copy of all the results and will surely share everything once I have it! I was told they would call ASAP if anything came back abnormal, otherwise, they would contact me once all the results are back to go over everything at once.

Hey! I don't know if this will be helpful for you, but this is what they tested on me (http://ajourneytoconception.blogspot.com/search/label/bloodwork). I believe the fasting glucose and insulin are some key ones in helping hint at whether or not you have a thyroid or diabetes issue. I've also heard of some docs using the AMH as a gauge for ovarian reserved (fwiw, I haven't had thid done), though I'm not sure if it tells them much more than your actual antral follicle count and your FSH level. Here's more info if you're interested - http://www.advancedfertility.com/amh-fertility-test.htm That's all I got :-) Yay for Wednesday!!

Have them test your testostrone level too. Females can have elevated levels. I had to take Prednisone to help with it and once I took it, I ended up with three children in three years.
