Hello everyone and happy new year!

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?

Thank you!

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.

 

Good luck!

Thank you so much for the reply and congratulations on the successful pregnancy. I am happy for you and hopefylly we will have your luck too! We are embryo banking but are not genetic testing as we dont get enough to justify the cost, average 2 per cycle. But I am thinking of ERA and your experience helps.

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!
