Hey all, just wondering those of you who had day 21 bloods do you remember what the doctor put on the request form?
on mine it requests: LH, FSH, D21 prolactin, rubella, thyroid function and full blood count. But there's no mention of progesterone which I thought should be tested? Or is it covered in the tests already requested?

I think it should include progesterone as well...
I've never had a full blood count or rubella with a CD21 but have had all the others.

Hmmm I'm wondering if I should call the gp surgery then and ask? Don't want to seem rude though, but I thought progesterone was a pretty important test!
Seems like different gps each do things differently!

I'd probably ring and check! My latest slip for a CD21 test is just for progesterone - none of the others.

Right thanks, I'm gonna ring!x

It also has a lovely note on it for reason of test: 'infertility'. Humph. :-(

:( Mine says 'subfertility', lovely!
I just rang and I'm glad I did as progesterone should be on the form and its not! So going to get it changed at the hospital when I go have the bloods x

Is the 'D21' not meaning day 21 progesterone?

Ah sorry just missed your last update. Glad it's sorted!
07/10/2013 at 12:54
I did think that too but the tests are listed and it says 'd21 prolactin', so I assume that's all it tests for, but anyways yes glad it's sorted! Thanks all x

Mine says infertility on the form too with lots of diff things to test for - glad you got it sorted :)

I have never seen any paperwork or got any forms when Ive had to go for bloods. I just turned up to my GP and the nurse took them and asked me why I was getting them!

I think it depends on whether you have to go somewhere to have them done or if they are done at the surgery madcat :)
