I got my BFP on the transfer that was done by a fellow and supervised by Dr. J so I didn't vote because technically Dr. J didn't do the actual transfer.

http://womenshealtha...ocess_2453.html

The technique of the embryo transfer is one of the most important steps in IVF. I cannot emphasize that enough. It is this technique that usually causes varying pregnancy rates among doctors. This step is important because even if you have the most beautiful and healthy appearing embryos, if the transfer is not done properly and with utmost gentleness, pregnancy will not occur. Many studies have been done comparing transfer techniques among Physicians and even among Physicians in the same group and found wide variations in pregnancy rates. This is attributed to the technique of and gentleness of the embryo transfer. It is absolutely critical that no bleeding is induced, because blood is toxic to the embryo, and that the back of the uterus is not touched, which can cause uterine contractions leading to failure. For this reason, I consider it very important that the Physician doing the transfer knows your uterus because he/she has done the MET before and practiced the transfer, and is not learning your cervical canal and uterine cavity for the first time. This point is especially important if you have a very deviated, curving or abnormal cervical canal. This is a problem with many, if not most, large IVF clinics because you may have the transfer done by a doctor that has never met you due to their cross-coverage schedule.

I also think that this is where experience is very important. You want to choose a doctor that has done a lot of embryo transfers. A recent study in the U.S. found that a Fellow (an Ob/Gyn doctor undergoing specialty training) graduating from an infertility fellowship (advanced training) in the U.S., has only done an average of three embryo transfers. That would be like a new doctor that has only done three cases in a specific surgery. Essentially, they are not yet expert in that technique or surgery and therefore still need to “practice”. I agree that all doctors need to gain experience when they are just starting out, and most fellowship programs are unable to allow an untrained doctor to learn on their cash paying patients, but if you have a choice and since you are spending $10,000 or more for this treatment, just like with surgery, wouldn’t you want the doctor with the most experience so that you have the best chance of success?


So, OFC we don't get a choice of who is doing the transfer.. Other than we have the right to refuse a fellow.. Interesting..

No choice and also no mock ET (for me anyways...perhaps for women who have known cervical difficulties, uterine anomoly...but I've not heard too much about them at OFC)

I have had 2 BFP's with OFC, but could only vote once. Dr. Jackson did my first one when she was a fellow (with Dr. Claman supervising).

I had a fellow attempt it this time and was not doing well (I guess my cervix is funky) so Dr. Kortarba too over.  It made me nervous that they did let the fellow try for as long as she did.  I had read that blood was toxic to embryos so I was fearful that it might screw things up but I am currently 16 weeks pregnant with twins.

Thanks :)
I'm still in hospital, so it won't be until I'm out (another week maybe). They'll do an early scan due to history of ectopic. I'm 4+6 today, so I'm getting close to when you could see the sac(s)!

Dr Corbett did my transfer (FET) as well, with Dr Vause supervising.

Single embryo transfer and I'm now 10wks with identical twins!

I got a negative with Kotarba and a positive with Shmorgon.  I found his technique to be much better.  He was very calm, focused and deliberate and the "cleaning" part was much more comfortable.

 

For retrieval, I think I had Dr. Jackson the first time.  The second time I had Dr. Claman.  I found him much more thorough with retrieval.  He also seemed to take his time more and make sure that he got all the eggs that he could.


Age 40, DH 44 in Oct.

TTC on and off since 2007 before our second IVF, in 2014, brought us our beautiful son and our first FET brought us our second son in 2017.  Our family is complete!
