Mike and I met Dr. Yalamanchili today for a consultation. She did a quick exam on me and got us started on what we need to do now. These are our instructions:
Mike is going to have a Semen Analysis done this Thursday.
My instructions are more complex:
*As soon as I start my period (should be this week), I will call and make an appointment for when my cycle ends to have a test done (approx. a week later) that is called a Hysterosalpingogram.
*3 days after the start of my period, I will have blood work done. There will be 8 tests done using my blood: CBC, FSH, LH, Prolaction, TSH Reflex, DHEA, DHEAS, Total & Free Testosterone.
*2 days before my appointment for the Hysterosalpingogram, I will start taking a pill called Doxycycline Hyclate. I will take one tablet two times a day for seven days. This pill kills bacteria.
*When my period has ended, I will have the Hysterosalpingogram done.
I am really excited to get the ball rolling (FINALLY).
