Hi landi

They normally do all the blood tests to test your hormones, this can also tell them where you are in your cycle as well as if you have or will be ovulating soon. As you go through the IVF program you will still be doing a lot of blood tests, to test your E2, Progesterone and other things.

Hope this helps

Take care
