Hi there!

 

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? zjujfjf.gif

 

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!

Hi All,

 

   Hope everyone is doing well during this pandemic.  Hope we will get back to normal soon.

 

   I haven't been online for awhile.  I had a baby boy last Nov. and thinking about trying for a second child next year.  I have one embryo left which had PGT done, graded 5BA.  Anyone has any idea if this grading is a good candidate for transfer?  I spoke to Dr. Garcia and she asked me to consult with the genetic counselor.  I wonder if this has a chance of success.

 

  Also, do I need to do another ERA?  

 

Thanks,

 

Anyfung


TTC for 1.5 years

First IVF at 38, 9 eggs retrieved, 7 matured, 7 fertilized, 5 went to genetic testing at day 5, 3 came back normal (4AA, 3AA, 5BA)

Polyp removed in Aug 2019

First embryo transfer in Dec 2019 -  BNF

Hi Everyone,

 

Is anyone using donor eggs with MFC on here? If so are you using DEB USA?

 

Thanks

Yes - the process is so frustrating.  They missed my appointment date a few times so some of my cycles were pushed out.  I had to call the nurse / hotline / email, etc to make sure that my Day 1's are properly logged and to officially start a cycle.

Anyone moving to immune testing?   I was recently recommended to undergo the immune protocol, but now that Dr. Virro is retiring, I am not sure that any doctor's at MFC really know immunology as much as Dr V. Thoughts on this, anyone? 

 

When I asked my doctor about the immune testing process, I feel that I am not getting a whole lot of information on it, just the high-level basics.
