Hi

Getting excited now as things are alll in place, and am expecting to go ahead with my baseline scan on day 2 of my cycle - hope to proceed with DIUI in Denmark. Can anyone tell me what to expect for the baseline scan...is it internal ( and messy??)? . I like to know what to expect!!

Cheers

Hi hunny,

Yes baseline is usually internal. Mine was not messy really, and they give you plenty of tissue  ;) Don't worry though they have seen it all b4 and are completlly used to it  :) And mine was on day 2 of AF as she was late whilst D/R  ::)
Good luck hun  ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^

Hi Josie
As Sam said, baseline scans are internal, as are your follicle scans too
They aren't messy, and are not painful
The baseline scan is to check you are all 'switched off'
which means your ovaries are 'quiet' no follicles or cysts on them, and that your lining has thinned nicely
Some girls find their AF's are sometimes late with tx so end up having their scans whilst on a period
I have had a scan while bleeding, and it is fine, i was dreading it, but it really was nothing to worry about.
Good luck hun, hope you are ready to move onto stimming x x x

Thank you both for your reassurance - I feel much better about it now.

Love Josie x
