Day 2 Testing - what is it for?
Posted 29 July 2008 - 07:43 PM
If anyone knows anything about this I would appreciate it. I think they want to get a baseline for the follicles maybe?? I'm not sure how this would vary one day after taking follistim. I also don't know what they are looking for in the blood. I will eventually ask my doctor, but they are getting tired of me calling with questions so I thought I'd throw it out here to see if anyone knew.

At my clinic, you could go to see the doctor for cycle monitoring when starting an IUI on day 2, 3 or 4. For IVF they always wanted to see us on day 2.
You're probably best asking your clinic as I'm not sure if different clinics have different procedures. I don't think starting stimulation 1 day late would make a difference, but to be sure, I think you should speak to your clinic.
