We're mid way through our first IVF cycle, and we've also done three IUIs at Genesis. I don't have much to compare to, and our situation is challenging being from so far away (Yukon), but we're happy with the staff and service at Genesis. How about you?

We are from the Yukon too!!! Yes it is challenging being so far away. (and expensive) I really have had great experiences with the staff and Dr. Kashyap is very easy to talk too. This is our 2nd round at the clinic.

Hello Y&A,
Thanks for your responses. For some reason I didn't get notified on my email about these postings and only remembered to check today and I am glad I did.

So happy to hear you both have had good experiences with Dr. K. I did my first successful cycle at genesis during the time when Dr K was taking over the clinic. I worked with her and Dr.Nakhuda. Both were great at the time. I found things with the nurses were a bit disorganized but Dr. K was very helpful and carrying. just wanted to make sure that now that Dr.K is on her own things at the clinic are still smooth, professional and friendly, which by the sounds of it they are.

We have a couple of snow babies at Genesis and are considering EFT. I have an appointment next week to start the conversation but we probably won't start anything until the new year.

Thanks again for your responses, I feel like I will stay with Genesis at this point instead of transferring my embryos to Olive which we were considering.



How are your cycles going?

Aurora I can tell in your signature you had your transfer on oct 1st. Sending you positive vibes!
Yukon - hope things are going well for you!

We also had some interactions with Dr. Nakhuda when we were still trying with IUI, it seems be took our break (we took some time to look at options, finances, etc) over the transition period, so it's been smooth sailing for us at Genesis. 

 

I have my transfer tomorrow, I had 16 eggs collected, 8 icsi'd, 6 fertilized and as of day 3 (yesterday) all 6 were looking excellent! I am pretty relieved at the results so far, it's hard to keep the hopes in check of course. 

 

I'd be curious to know how the FET process works and your experience with it at Genesis, as it looks like we will have a few to put "on ice" for future attempts or hopefully, siblings ;) Am I reading your signature right (sorry I am bad at all the forum lingo) were you successful with your first IVF? Congratulations! 

 

Good luck to you both!

Hi Yukon,

That is a great fertilization report. How did the transfer go? Now u got the dreaded 2 week wait, hope you have something to keep you busy.

Yes! You are correct our first IVF was successful and we have a gorgeous baby boy. I cant believe how time flies - he is almost a year.

I will keep you posted about the FET process once we start it next year.

Keeping my fingers crossed for you!

Transfer went well, 1 5ab blast. Unfortunately none of the others were candidates for freezing by day 6.

Yes, tww will be brutal! Luckily I have work to focus on.

That was the grade of my blast! :))) you only need one :)))
I remember I ate lots of pinnaple during the 2ww - I read somewhere it's good for implantation :)
I'll be on the lookout for your updates.
