I'm not sure how monitoring would work but we didn't have a completely negative experience at RFP. I agree the communication method sucks but not having consistency in doctors didn't really other me. In fact, we didn't see our doctrine, Dr. Greene, at any point in our IVF cycle but I saw lots of the other doctors. That being said, I'm kind of a hands off kind of person and just trusted that they knew what they were doing. I didn't worry a lot during my cycle an just went in for appointments and took meds when they told me to.
The one thing I did find weird though was at our egg transfer we must have been the last patients of the day as they told me to stay there for at least half an hour and then left for the day, leaving me and my husband in the surgical area by ourselves.
They were willing to fit n my cycle even though it started over two weeks earlier than expected and the pharmacy overnighted me my required meds.
I have heard that a lot of ladies ave issues with RFP if they have any complex issues that prevent them from getting pregnant or carrying once pregnant. This clinic isn't as in to experimental procedures for things like immune issues.
That being said, we successfully got pregnant on our first IVF and despite a Bumpy few first months with OHSS
(which the clinic kept uptodate with me from afar) we're now over halfway through.

Something found on adrenal gland at follow up ultrasound, MRI showed what seems to be a benign tumor. Meeting with specialist Jan 8, 2014 - all fertility treatments on hold. :/
Tumour is definitely producing Aldosterone (causes high blood pressure) and Cortisol. Lucky me, only 34 similar cases recorded in the world! Tumour removed May 2014.
Approached about a possible adoption March 2014. Rush through all the paperwork and process.
Charlotte Evangeline born June 27, 2014. We brought her home on July 7 and held our breath for 10 days until she officially became ours.
Surprise BFP October 2014. Due to wonky cycles, ultrasounds convince Doctors I have a blighted ovum but detailed ultrasound reveals heartbeat at 6w3d. On progesterone support and waiting to see if pregnancy is still viable. Holding our breath again.
