    Rubella Testing - checked - positive, ok
    Cervical cancer test - checked - normal
    D23 Progesteron test - checked - just done today, waiting for results
    HSG test - scheduled on my next cycle, D1
    Prolactin test - scheduled on my next cycle, D2
    FSH, LH, E2 test - scheduled on my next cycle, D2


    Sooo many tests! Not that I mind it, because I would do anything to have a baby, of course! :p
    Just that I find it quite ironic to be undergoing all of these in a hospital because I am not really fond of hospitals and syringes, I've never been hospitalized in my life.
    Also, I don't have visible veins on my arm joints and so getting a blood sample
    from me is always a challenge to the nurses (they always have the senior nurses called in to do it, LOL!).

    I'm psyching myself up to be prepared for more poking here and there since we're on our way to IVF/ICSI.

    Anyone else starting to feel like a pincushion? LOL :laugh2:

    Hey there, I've done all those tests except for the day 21 progesterone.
    Am on 2nd IUI, and have been TTCing since June 2009, so remember we are all in this together:hugs:

    DH's morphology is 1% as well, is improving though, is now 3%:thumbup:
    Good luck:dust:

    thanks! :hugs:

    It's great that your DH's sperm morphology has improved. Is he taking any medications?
    My DH was prescribed Andriol Testocaps and he took it for 3 months but no improvement. His sperm count even went lower :(

    DH is taking multi vitamins, and vitamin E, and has been prescribed Clomid 25mg/day since November.

    Also, for this IUI, he abstained for a week and his count has doubled:thumbup:
    It was 13 million (post wash) for my 1st IUI prior to Clomid, and 28 million (post wash) for my 2nd IUI:happydance:
