I was wondering if anyone here has had frozen eggs or embryos moved to Originelle (or Montreal Reproductive) from McGill and how was that process?
By the way, how long has this clinic been called Originelle?
Would also love to hear any recent experiences at this clinic.  I was sorry to see that there were a lot of negative posts here, but there were also some positives.  No one has posted in a few months now.  
Thanks for any info.


Dx: Age & Endometriosis & Tubal

There are some past threads about this clinic.  If you search MFC you'll find them  Overall, there wasn't a whole lot of positive feedback!  Maybe thats why the name is  changing?  Fresh start?

May24th: BETA day: BFN. Told to wait out a cycle before pursuing another FET.


June 2013: Hubs did a second DNA fragmentation test with another urologist for a second opinion.  Test came back at 15% abnormal, so... now within the norm... huh??? So happy but wondering how it went from 59% fragmented down to 15% fragmented.  Morphology still low.


July 15 2013: Hysteroscopy, Endo Biopsy done.  They've removed a polyp as well.  Still waiting for full results... darn summer vacations, making test results delayed... so anxious.


August 28th 2013: Green light to start Estrace today for FET

Sept 4: on duty Dr. (not Dr. Tan) gave me a big NO on a double transfer due to me having blasts and my age URGH!

Sept 11th: Transfer day.  surprise! Dr tells me they're transferring 2 hatching blasts.  lower quality though...

Sept 23: Beta: negative.

WTF appointment Sept 26.


5 3 frozen hatching blasts left.

Immune Testing: positive for high CD56 (and other stuff moderate)


December 21 2013: Cycle starts! Immune protocol: Prednisone, Lovenox, Estrace, PIO, Doxy, Medrol, Calcium

Perfect lining (triple stipe, first time the technician is so happy with it!)

Transfer on Jan 7th, Empty Bladder transfer. (so much easier!)
