Trouble TTC

Yearly GYN Appointments

So I have been working with a RE since January.  I realized its time to get my yearly exam and pap from my GYN.  I am doing IUI cycles.  Do you usually go during the beginning of your cycle to your GYN while in an IUI cycle?  Just trying to figure out how this works.  Or does it not matter?  I was hoping to be pregnant by now and not have to schedule a yearly appointment but clearly we have no luck.  Just wanna make sure the PAP doesn't effect the IUI.  Thanks.  
***SIGGY WARNING***

DX: Unexplained
6 Failed IUIs (Clomid and Gonal F).  
IVF #1 began August 2013- BC, 4 days of Estrace, stimmed with Gonal F and Menopur, Ganirelix, 9R 5M 5F, Medrol and Doxycycline, 5 day transfer of 2 early blastocysts- good quality, Progesterone, Estrace, and baby aspirin, BETA on 9/20 BFN,   IVF #2 began September 2013, stimming with Gonal F (higher dose) and Menopur, Ganirelix, 18R 14M 9F with ICSI, 5 day transfer of 2 BBs one was starting to hatch, 2 frosties: 1  BB and 1 AC, BETA on 10/21, BFN BETA was a 5- chemical 
Getting some more testing and trying to figure out what the issue is before FET in December, started acupuncture on 11/10, RLP and some other BW nothing major to report except slightly high Prolactin. Prolactin was slightly high when I started with my RE and I already had an MRI which was Neg.  Endo biopsy=negative.  WTF is wrong with us???

Re: Yearly GYN Appointments

  • I don't know the answer. But the WTO time should be fine. Call your doctors and ask them if no one else has any advice.

    I just had my IVF consult and I hadn't had a pap in almost 2 years.  Anything under 2 yrs is what they like to see for IVF. 

    I am not sure if a pap would effect your IUI. I would personally not chance it. 

    Ask your RE what they would recommend.

  • I would call and ask, but you should be fine to do a pap during an IUI cycle. If you are worried at all, can you just schedule it before you trigger?

  • Yeah, like pp said, I would call your RE. I have actually heard of RE's doing the pap while you are in there being monitored so you don't have to go to the GYN too. Worth a call!

    I was told that since PG women can have paps, that it doesn't matter when you get it done.  But personally I'd try to do it during the first half (before IUI) part of a cycle.  I personally went 18 months or so without getting it done because we'd been in treatment and people were all up in my business then.  But like PP, you have to have a pap on file that is current (ie less than 18 months) in order to do an IUI with my RE so he informed me I'd need to do one again before cycling this past January.  

    After going to an RE and having so many treatments, you forget how quick and easy a pap is in comparison.

    i agree with PPs. Might be worth a call to your RE to see what they say.

  • Thanks everyone.  I'm going in to my RE on CD 3 on Tuesday so I'll ask him then.  I got a PAP last May so its only been a year and I never had any issues.  I'll probably try to make my next appointment for the beginning of next cycle.  Thanks again.
