Has anyone here had Dr. Keith Jarvi do sperm aspiration?


He is supposed to come to TRIO on the day of my egg retreival to also do DH's sperm aspiration. Just wondering if TRIO sets this up or are we supposed to call Jarvi's office to let him know of this?


Also, I know the procedure costs $1000 according to Jarvi, but when do we pay him this? Are we charged after the procedure?

Me: 39

DH: 34


DH has obstructive azoospermia due to Cystic Fibrosis.


Started BCP November 14th

Take my last BCP November 23rd

Begin stims November 26th


Anticipated retrieval date: December 8th.


DH had his sperm aspirated via PESA day of retrieval.


24 eggs retrieved

7 blasts (day 5/6) sent off for PGS

2 genetically normal embryos

Anticipated transfer - February 2017

We did. I think if you do it at the clinic, TRIO will pay him. You pay the clinic. I could be wrong. You can call Dr Jarvi's secretary and ask though as she deals with the billing. I also throught it was $1500 to get it done at TRIO. Like a call out fee. We did ours at Mt Sinai and it was $1000 but we had to do it on a specific day when they already had other procedures booked. We used frozen. Which I believe in the end was a huge mistake and negatively impacted our results. If we do another round we will do fresh.

See my 'about me' page for treatment history.
