Does anyone here have Dr. Wais as their primary physician? We are in the process of starting IVF but I don't understand why it takes so long for the nursing co-ordinators to get us set up and scheduled to start cycle monitoring... Plus we hear booking is done 1 month in advance? I could've started cycle monitoring this month but since I haven't heard from them yet post nursing webinar, I have to wait another month (waste another cycle) before getting started?
Can anyone share some insights? I understand IVF can be a time consuming process but this seems like its taking ages...
Hello and welcome!
You are completely right. IVF can be time consuming and slow. When I started with Dr Virro, my first appointment was 2 months after doing the bloodwork and scans. I do feel that once the process begins, you are in the system and the clinic keeps you in motion.
But I hear you about feeling like you are wasting cycles. I was so angry whenever there were delays in the process (waiting for surgery, waiting for a spot in funded IVF).
Good luck in your journey!
