For anyone that had hormone testing done!! Katie & Clay's Mommy! TTC since Jan 2012; 18 kids; Louisiana 2847 posts

Please tell me if this sounds right or not. I got an order in March to do some testing on my hormones. One set to be done between CD1 and CD 7 and the other is my CD21 test. Well I lost the original lab sheet. I got another yesterday for both orders but the one I did yesterday (I was on CD 3) only had things like HIV, rubella, and some other type of diseases. I am concerned that the nurse did not read my chart correctly since if that was the ones they wanted they could have done that at any time. I wouldn't have had to wait until my period started. Does it sound right or should I call and ask about it? I know when I first looked at the lab sheet in March they had things marked off like TSH and stuff. It wasn't on this one.

I would call just t double check. Better than having to wait a whole cycle because they put the wrong tests down.

I called earlier and she said she'll have a nurse call me before 4pm. I go work for 1:30 which will not help me since they don't do bloodwork on weekends and I'm on CD 4 right now. CD 7 is on Monday which I will be working all day and the lab will be closed when I get off so I'll have no choice but to wait. I'm more sure now after thinking about it that they did put me down for the wrong lab work. I remember looking at the original papers and seeing the different hormone testing they would be done. One of them included my egg reserve cuz I remember telling my husband I was glad they're doing all that plus testing my thyroid. I had none of those tests on yesterday's sheet and I looked on my Cd21 one and it's just my progesterone on that one. She made a mistake i'm sure of it.

They did the wrong tests. Usually your E2, LH, FSH, AHM and Prolactin are tested on CD 3.



I'm sorry that you have to wait another cycle for the testing :(

Well I talked to them and they said this round of testing was not hormone testing aside from my progesterone on CD 21. They said that when a woman goes to them wanting to get pregnant the first thing they test is for std's. Like seriously you think if I had an std I'd be trying to get pregnant and possibly pass it on to my child and have that child be sick or die! Really! That's what I wanted to tell her. I guess they'll do the test that makes a difference next time.
