dr appointment

Have my appointment with the RE reporductive endo tomorrow and for the life of me I can't think of too many questions to ask.  So I figured I would ask you girls for any suggestions on some questions I should him.  I know they are doing a semen dna fragmintation test on hubby but I have no clue what additional testing I will have done on me.  

Any suggestions on questions I should ask would be great.

Did you do the HSG (Hystolopingogram)? That is when they shoot the dye in your tubes? Depending on age you will need to have a mamogram.
Ask what your FSH is?
You can also test for clotting disorder which is what I did after my m/c.  Just so you know.

Good Luck.

Definitively ask to be tested for all blood clotting factors/mutations (that should be a set of at 5 tests), that's a simple blood test. Particularly as your main problem is unexplained miscarriages.

Other that that, FSH, amh (ovarian reserve), progesterone tests.Uterus lining that should be seen by ultrasound (at a certain time of your cycle).

HSG is a must to make sure there are no tubal blockages, but also because statistics show that after having the hysterosalpingogram done, a high percentage of women get pregnant that same month.  So, time it right so that you have it done before your ovulation.  :)
Ask about thyroid issues too.  Not only T3 and T4, but also the antibodies.

Thank you all for your suggestions.  Had my 4th hsg done back in Oct 08 and everything came back clean.  Had blood clotting and chromosome disorders tested however the dr did find that there was 4 other blood clotting disorders that the other dr did not test for so I had 10 vials of blood taken.  The last full blood panel I had done was right after my m/c back in Dec 08 so dr wanted to test fsh and all other levels again to get a better check.  Hubby had the semen anaylsis done today along with them testing for the DNA SCSA testing.  His came back great but we are waiting for the SCSA results which will be back in 2 weeks.  Also did a thyroid u/s done which was wierd,.  Never had an ultrasound done on my throat before the tech said that my thyroids looked good and measured normal with no masses so that was good so far.  

He did order a chlomid test to test my ovaries but we can't do that test until my next cycle.  I will get results back and get to talk to him about what he may have seen in my blood test on the 6 April.  I'm hoping that something may stand out and give us some answers.
