male perspective on hannam clinic
Posted 29 April 2009 - 01:17 PM
We've seen a lot of different fertility doctors, but DH really likes the Hannam Fertility Centre (in Toronto) for the following reasons:
1) Hannam spoke to both of us and not just to me, the female partner. He was concerned that DH understood what we were talking about, and went to great lengths to explain terms, procedures, etc., yet he was never condescending. Questions were encouraged.
2) He didn't hesitate to order any male factor tests he thought might tell us something. (All previous doctors refused to order male factor testing for us.)
3) DH was encouraged to stay with me throughout the egg retrieval (which he was not allowed to do for another IVF at a different clinic). This was important to him.
So he says to all other male partners out there that though Hannam is pricey, he is worth it, and that the other doctor there is great, too.
Treatments: Clomid, IUI/injects, IVF/ICSI (1st BFP ever, then m/c), FET/AH.

TTC since 12/04 - PCOS, mild MF - Five rounds of clomid - Four cycles cancelled because of cysts - Three failed IUI's (one with injectables) - Two fertility clinics - And an IVF/ICSI partridge in a pear tree
IVF/ICSI #1 cancelled - IVF/ICSI #2 ER Sept 18 - 15 eggs!!! 14 mature, 10 fertilized.
ET Sept 23 - transferred two beautiful high grade blasts! 5 blast kidsicles on ice.
October 1 - Early beta due to spotting - 7. Low progesterone, had to switch to PIO.
October 3- PIO working. Progesterone increases from 8 to 74, and beta of 27.
October 7 -(original beta date) 151 . Low positive.
October 9 - 273. Not doubling but still 'within standards'
October 14 - 1482. 97% doubling rate! Good news!
October 20 - u/s not great. Baby measuring a week behind, no hb.

Apparently I make crap eggs. Taking 800mgs/day of Co-Q10 since October 2009, then will do high dose IUI sometime in June/July.
