Testing Recap

Posted by auntiem10 on May 20, 2010

I thought it might be helpful to recap of all the testing we have done since our One-Day Work-Up on April 7th.

1. Hubby’s Testing (at CCRM):

  • Semen Analysis = normal but motility is a little low, so we will use ICSI
  • Sperm Chromatin Assay = normal

2. My Doppler Ultrasound (at CCRM):

  • Antral Follicle Count (AFC) = 19-21 follicles counted
  • Blood Flow to Uterus = Normal (2.4 on one side, 2.17 on other)
  • Uterine Outline = Normal

3. Hysteroscopy (at CCRM):

  • Hysteroscopy = Normal

4. Bloodwork (drawn at CCRM):

  • Communicables = Negative

5. Endometrial Biopsy (locally):

  • Endo Biopsy = Canceled due to scheduling error by local RE. Decided “better safe than sorry” and decided to do Depot Lupron treatment prior to transfer.

6. Annual Exam (locally with OB/GYN):

  • General Physical Exam = Normal
  • Pap = Normal
  • General Bloodwork = Normal
  • Thyroid Panel = High TSH, low T4, very high TPO antibody level; Dr. Surrey recommended I see an endocrinologist.

7. Endocrinologist Appointment (locally):

  • Diagnosis = Hashimoto’s hypothyroidism
  • Treatment = 50 mcg Synthroid per day; will recheck bloodwork during the week of June 21st

8. Cycle Day 3 Bloodwork (drawn locally and shipped to CCRM):

  • FSH = 5.5
  • Estradiol = 37
  • LH = 2.5
  • AMH = 3.2

That is a lot of poking and prodding! : )
