    Hi guys,

    Me and my oh are due for our first hospital appointment in a few weeks time. I have had my 21 day bloods done and they were good, I have an 11 yr old fm my marriage. OH has had no children. We had a blighted ovum 2 years ago next month but since then we've had nothing :(

    What can we expect at this first visit?

    Any advice would be great guys, thanks x

    I would think that the doctor would ask you for additional tests like fallopian tube blockage and also ask your OH for sperm analysis.

    at our first appt the dr said hubby needed 2nd semen analysis...I had already done all the blood work with my gyno (and everything was fine), except for a test done within 7 days of my cycle starting to test one of my hormone levels. Once we got back his semen analysis with the same result they started us the right away with IVF...we found out Oct. 4th that we would have to do IVF and I started injections Nov. 16th....but it will all depend on your cycles too...
