My doctors were very proactive with all sorts of testing.  About 6 months after I stopped BC, I had my regular check up with my primary care.  I told her that my first cycle off BC was 90 days, followed by a normal one, and I was on like day 30 something and still hadn’t ovulated.  She ordered blood work and a U/S to just make sure everything looked normal.  After that I went to an OB and more and more bloodwork.  She wanted to schedule an HSG (since all blood work on various days had some back normal) and SA for my hsuband right away.  I think I finally did the HSG almost a year from when we started TTC.  I would have done it earlier, but the timing juts didnt work out with my travels.  A few months after that I started seeing an RE and with all the diagnostic results already in hand (though we’re just unexplained) I’m glad we have all the checks and info in hand already and don’t have to wait to do those.  I think getting all the testing you can do, including an HSG, up front is not a bad idea…. unless cost is an issue.  I mean, you can try anything you want, drugs to make you ovulate, progesterone to lengthen LP, but if your tubes are blocked (which an HSG would show), then nothing you do would matter.
