Just how many test do they need!??!

So I went to the gyn today. Had a brief discussion, pap and pelvic
then she goes on to tell me that she will be testing all of the following:
Metabolic Panel
Lipid panel
CBC w/diff w/pitt
Estradoil
Testotrone-total
thyroxine (t4)
THS - 3RD GEN
and Insulin

Oh and i have to go back for an ultrasound


Now I know that I have pain and irregular cycles, I donít know if I should be worried, or if this is just normal. I have never had a dr. want to test all of this.
I am glad that I found someone willing to go to these lengths, but I am now nervous.

Hi I would say it would be slightly better maybe to be overtested than undertested just as long as the tests done don't happen to be harmful. They might actually turn up some useful information for the future.

I sure hope so, she also picked up the fact that my former dr. diagnosed me with endo on my surgical records, but told me in me followup, that she did not find anything. So, for the past few years, I have been living in pain, but all the while believeing that nothing was found aside form cyst during my lap surgery.

Those are just basic tests they do all the time...or should be at least. Part of a regular check up

I sure would like to think that this is routine, It is just the first time that I had these test done with a GYN aside for pregnancy test or related. I am glad that they are checking , but just a bit nervous thats all
