Preconception Lab Work

Molly had her preconception lab work done, as required by our local LGBT-friendly health care provider where we will be doing the inseminations. The lab work required included:

  • CBC and Comprehensive Metabolic Panel
  • Lipid profile
  • HIV
  • Blood type and RH factor type
  • Syphilis, Chlamydia, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C
  • Measles titer, Mumps IgG, Rubella IgG, Varicella IgG
  • TSH
  • CMV IgM and IgG
  • HPV Pap test

Luckily, all of her lab work was normal. Notably, her CMV status is positive, meaning we can choose a CMV positive or negative donor. If you are CMV negative, then most places will require you to choose a CMV negative donor, thus limiting your choices. But because Molly is positive, we can choose a CMV positive or negative donor.
