Postby steffwannababy » Wed Jul 30, 2008 2:33 am

I have been asking alot of questions but I am getting excited so bare with me please. I am going to the OBGYN next month and I was wondering what to expect I haven't been checked yet I thought I would be pregnant by now (yes after two years) Do they check you then you have another appointment after that for ultra sounds or what. How do they find out if there is something wrong? Im so nerved up PLEASE ANSWER! What do they do put you on med's? Im so scared they are going to tell me I can't ever have another child or that I have Cancer ahhhh lol hope its not all that bad.
Here I am taking all the blame for not getting pregnant it could be my husband. He is on high blood preasure med's as is a bit over weight

i don't know what they do because we didn't have to do much.
they may check your husband sperm as well.

some insurance only cover the investigation for infertility. they don't cover the treatment itself so make sure they cover IUI/IVF/ICSI too as this IS artificial insemination.

Good luck

This is what I read is that good

What’s Covered

For men, hypothalamic disease, pituitary disease, disorders of sperm transport, disorders of sperm motility or function and/or sexual dysfunction may cause infertility. Under your TRICARE Prime benefit, infertility testing and treatment, including correction of the physical cause of infertility, is covered. Diagnostic services may include semen analysis, hormone evaluation, chromosomal studies, immunologic studies, special and sperm function tests and/or bacteriologic investigation. Therapy may include, but is not limited to, hormonal treatment, surgery, antibiotics, administration of HCG and/or radiation therapy, depending upon the cause.

For women, services and supplies required to diagnose and treat illness or injury involving the female genital system are covered. Infertility testing and treatment, including correcting the physical cause of infertility, are included under this provision. This does not include artificial insemination, which is excluded from coverage.

Artificial Reproduction Technologies Are Not Covered

One of the primary things to know is that TRICARE cannot cover any form of artificial reproductive technologies, but can, in general, cover treatment of underlying medical condition. See the chart for some examples of covered and not covered procedures.
