Clinics in Vancouver
Posted 01 January 2022 - 11:35 AM
I have been with PCRM Burnaby for about a year and I dont think I had the best care so far. I have DOR and not sure what other clinics are like or if there is anyone that specializes in DOR. What is your experience and who would you recommend?

We were quite happy with our experience with Olive. My wife didn't have DOR, but was a poor responder, but we were able to retrieve one PGS-normal embryo per cycle (3 cycles total). First transfer failed (ERA test after showed needed 1 more day of progesterone). Second transfer gave us our DD. Third transfer successful, wife currently in second trimester.
They are a larger clinic and are quite busy. However, whenever we e-mailed our doctor with questions, we received replies in a timely fashion. I felt our doctor did make changes to our protocols to accommodate our concerns.

Your result of one euployd embryo per cycle is great. If you dont mind, what was your wife's age.
I am 41 and have banked 5 embryos so far. I hope to have another 4-5 and hopefully out of all, 1 or 2 may be good. But I have no idea if that is possible as I hear that after 40 its not very promissing.
Thanks again and hope all goes well!
