Have you gotten your CD3 blood work redone? — The Bump
Trouble TTC

Have you gotten your CD3 blood work redone?


It will be a year in October since my last CD3 blood work. Have any of you ladies redone this blood work to see if the numbers have changed? Since it's been almost a year and I am now 33 I'm wondering if my FSH number went down at all. I just moved so I will need to find a new RE so I'm thinking he will want to do a more up to date CD3 check, but wanted to see what you ladies have experienced. I almost don't want to get the blood work done because I'm afraid my numbers have changed for the worse. 

Me: 33, DH: 32

TTC: 2 years
Fertility blood tests all normal
Tilted uterus
3 day ultrasound 17 follicles
HSG: 11/13/13- tubes open
DH SA: SUPER sperm (145 million, 84% motility, 22% morphology)
All infection disease and immunity blood tests NORMAL
FIRST IUI May 2014: 100 mg Clomid days 5-9, third ultrasound CD 13 revealed four follicles 27, 24 and 20 and 13mm. Trigger shot May 28 with IUI May 29 and 30 (fingers crossed) - BFN started spotting 11DPO :(

IUI #2 B2B 6/23 and 6/24, three mature eggs and 130 million sperm! FX this is the month!  BFN 7/8

3rd cycle benched due to cysts - TI with OPK tests -  BFN

3rd mediated cycle: Clomid+Trigger+TI  (three follies left side, one on right as usual....what the hell right ovary get it together and produce some damn follicles!) 7DPO progesterone level 43 with NO suppositories YAY for a natural strong ovulation. Beta canceled started spotting 13DPO - Third time is not a CHARM! 14 day cycle WTF! Everything looks normal - RE wants to start injectables next cycle so this cycle I'm benched

Officially benched until March....but still plan on trying the baking soda douche due to my excessive and thick CM



Love this man....he was so before his time in his thoughts and ideas about the world....been obsessed about him lately bringing it back to the early 90s.


Never thought I would like long hair....


Re: Have you gotten your CD3 blood work redone?

  • Omg, so funny. I had my CD 3 BW redone on Monday after 4 months. I still haven't heard the results, just called the RE to see if they have them yet. I'm also nervous that my numbers have changed for the worse. I normally wouldn't have gotten it retested so soon but I was originally going to rush to do IVF and they wanted it done again for that. So I kinda got it done for nothing, but I also wanted to know if it's changed in the last 4 months. I agree, I think it's better to know.

    I don't even know what he is supposed to be!

  • I got my levels checked last October and I've definitely thought about whether we should recheck when we start cycling again (which won't be til early next year anyway since I'll be getting surgery soon).  But I absolutely think it's beneficial to know what the updated numbers are!  I will be bringing it up to my RE before we start treatment back up again.
