Hey! A few of us hijacked another thread to chat about our experience at TCART now TRIO. I thought I would start it up here.
I'm starting a funded round of IVF at TRIO in June of this year. I've been with the clinic since November 2015. So far it has been a positive experience and while I'm nervous/stressed about what my outcome will be I feel like I'm at the right place.
Schlepp, thanks for starting this thread. I am glad you are receiving the funding this year and June really isn't that far away now. It's nice you have some notice as well. Since you will be going through everything before me, I hope you don't mind if I bug you with questions when it's my turn
We are hoping to receive the funding this year too. If not, we may pay out of pocket.... we are saving up for it just incase as I've heard other clinics are already running out of the funding and I was told by the TRIO it may not happen for us this year as they don't know how many patients will get a funded cycle this year and we are no where near the top of the list. Our next appointment is with Dr. Bentov a week from Thursday and hopefully we will know more then.
We are waiting to see if we will have to do Micro-TESE along side IVF, as my DH has had 4 SA done and two came back with zero sperm and the other two were less than 0.1 of a million (24,000 was the number on the one). We are trying to see if we can freeze some from the ejaculate rather than having to do the operation. As soon as we have enough sperm (Dr. Bentov says he likes to see 1 million before doing IVF).
Once we know for sure we are able to do IVF I would like to get a book on the topic. Has anyone read any good books on IVF that they would recommend?
