[QUOTE=OhForCakesSake]Hi Everyone! My DH and I are scheduled for our first IVF consult next Monday. I was wondering if anyone had any experiences or suggestions about questions to ask during our appointment? Our issue is mostly MF. I’ve got all of the regular stuff, am I a candidate for mini-ivf, what do package include, what the details of the process are, etc… but what else would you have wish you asked your doctor before you began your IVF?
I figured there are so many supportive people on these boards with amazing knowledge about IF so I should pick your brains! Thanks in advance![/QUOTE]
I would make sure you get thorough bloodwork to include thyroid testing. Ask the RE if he does a hysteroscopy with a biopsy. My RE does the biopsy along with it because he wants to make sure the lining of the uterus is not inflammed or has an infection. It also is a practice run for the doctor to see the direction of your cervix and uterus for your transfer. I have also found out that the biopsy also helps for implantation after your transfer. The biopsied area helps for new tissue to be exposed for the blast to implant.
Try to get a list as well as dosage of the meds at which you will be on for your ivf. This way you can check and see what drugs are covered by your insurance. Not all drugs are covered but some are so check it all out!
Good luck and baby dust to you!
