Last Wednesday we had our follow up with Dr C. He thinks that we need to do more tests to try and find out what’s going. He has asked for hubs to give another semen sample which will be sent away to Pretoria to the only place in SA that does a CMA3 test. This test will evaluate the quality of the sperm. He would also like to reevaluate hubs initial sperm test to confirm the numbers. He also mentioned sending it off to Prof S for an independent evaluation.
He says he thinks my egg quality is good based on the eggs retrieved and quality of embryos we got. He would like me to have further blood tests for my uterus. He said they are quite pricey and will cost around R4500.
The next day I trotted off to the lab to do my blood tests. Before we did them I asked for a quotation and nearly dropped dead on the spot. My blood tests will cost R9633 and hubs are R3165. I walked straight out and called the Dr immediately. He has requested I email the quote through and he’ll get back to me.
We wait in anticipation for his call – note the sarcasm. >
