I'm also undergoing tx art QE at the moment. My DH has a very low sperm count 0.1 million but we were told motility and morphology are fine. I had my 21 day bloods taken at my GP before the referral. Our first appointment was 1st Dec, we had no idea what to expect either but don't worry everyone there is lovely. we took a walk round the hospital at one point and everyone kept asking if we were lost and if they could help, we just kept thinking that wouldn't happen at our local hosital
We were at the hospital for a total of 4hours, (none of the consent forms were sent to our address so we needed to spend time filling them in - but they did provide tea and toast as we were starving by this time).
First we both had blood taken, then the consultant came and explained everything that will happen throughout the tx (although I'd read most of it on-line anyway) Then I was taken for an internal scan - totally wasn't expecting this. Even more surprising after the scan the nurse asked if I would rather do injection or nasal spray (I chose injections) and 5 minutes later she reappeared with our start dates and gave us a bag of needles.
I was expecting to have to attend an open evening as well but it was never mentioned at our appointment so I'm unable to help you on that point. Sorry.
I don't think appointments usually last 4 hours as the nurse said it felt as though we had been there all day when we were on our way out.
Hope this helps you if I can be of any more help just ask.
Good luck with your tx. x x
