Posted 02 October 2014 - 07:57 AM

Hi, My husband and I have our initial consultation at Conceptia next week and I am just wondering how long a process it typically is to get started for a cycle? We had success with ivf/icsi at AART just about 4 years ago now and are ready to try for #2 (we have a beautiful almost 4 year old girl). I was going to go back to AART but with the funding announcement for NB we thought it was more financially responsible to proceed here. I am really hoping not to have to have another HSG dye test done because it is a long wait for that here and we really want to start this cycle asap.

 

Any experiences with this clinic?

 

Thanks,

 

Lisa

Hi Lisa,

 

I'm currently cycling at Conceptia.  Our IVF consult was July 24th and my baseline is Saturday, most of the hold up was just waiting for the blood work results to come in.  I'm happy with the way things are moving along.  I can't say whether they'll make you do a HSG, it's been about 1.5 years since I had mine and they didn't make me redo it.

 

I'm happy with my experience so far but I also have nothing else to compare it to.  I will be interested to hear your opinion/comparison between the two clinics.

 

Good luck,

Charissa

Wishing you the best of luck Charissa...happy to hear you are happy with Conceptia so far. Keep me updated on your status...Sounds like we have similar situations. I will keep fingers and toes crossed for you. The worst part is the two week wait for sure. Did they say if they prefer 3 or 5 day transfer of embryos? I did a 5 day transfer when we did ivf/icsi. I wish Thursday would just hurry up and get here so I could know how quickly we can get started.

Hi Lisa, I am currently cycling at Conceptia as well. This is my first IVF cycle. We had the initial consultation in July but we had to wait 2 months for the bloodwork results to arrive. Stated BCP at the end of September. Hopefully, retrieval and transfer will be around mid-November.

 

Did you do a Mock Transfer at AART? I did that around 2 weeks ago where they mapped out the uterus and checked the circulation. Mine was a bit on the low side and I have been adviced to get my heart rate above 100 3 times a week.

 

If I remember correctly, the nurse at Conceptia said that the decision on a day3 or day5 transfer is based on their quality.

Hi gals,

 

I'm also cycling at Conceptia. This is my first IVF cycle and am at the end of down regulation now, hoping to start stimming in a couple of days. The timelines for us was from July go-ahead for IVF and a bit of bloodwork, then late August for the mock, so not too long. They prefer day 5 transfers, but it depends on quality as Hopeful_1 said.

 

We've been going there since January and Dr. Robichaud did a surgery on me in May and I have nothing but great things to say about him and the team at Conceptia.

 

Best of luck!

Hello CharRho, im still in the BCP mode so you are probably around 10 days ahead of me in the cycle. On Friday, we're doing the Teaching Visit.

 

Yesterday I was feeling really grouchy and I wondered if that was a side-effect of the BCP. I had no reason to feel like that but I couldn`t shake it off, even after I baked a cake (and ate some). Did you have any side effects like that on Apri21?

 

Wishing you the best of luck.

I definitely had side effects on the pill, moody and really did not feel like myself. Also, I'm prone to headaches and have been suffering with them while on the pill and Suprefact. I had my baseline visit today and all systems are a go! I start stimming tomorrow :)

I don't remember going on the BCP last time...Do you have to be on the bcp before starting a cycle? I am on day 4 of my period today. I really hope they let me start right way. They didn't do a mock transfer at AART...I am surprisingly nervous for our visit tomorrow even though we've been through it before. Did your partners have to do a semen analysis with Conceptia as well? We had one done already through our family doctor...I remember AART required us to do one at their clinic as well. I did find out good news today that I have coverage for most of the drugs used during a cycle :)

 

Looking forward to at least having a plan after tomorrow. Good luck to all of you and thanks so much for replying. This site is so helpful!

I was told at Conceptia that the reason you are put on BCP is for them to take full control of the cycle. The administration of BCP will regulate when the next AF shows up and that helps them plan out retrievals and transfers, not having too many women retrieving/transferring on the same day.  Also, I read somewhere on Google that BCP helps with the lining as well (forgot exactly what it said).

My husband did a semen analysis through the family doctor (but that does not cover motility and some other aspects) so he had to redo it at Conceptia.

You are lucky re. med coverage. That's pretty awesome that you are covered.

 

I am very glad re. this website, finding so much information. It is also a support system for me, the first time doing IVF.

Great first visit today. There is certainly much more focus on supplements, vitamins etc than at AART. I picked up a bunch of stuff they recommended today (let the bank account draining begin!). We are planning another IVF with ICSI cycle hopefully by January. I already did all the cycle bloodwork but still have to do the fasting stuff and DH has to do the detailed sperm analysis. They said we can do a mock transfer as soon as those tests are reviewed. They use different drugs than AART as well...I apparently was on a pretty high dose of FSH my last round (I didn't realize this) so he isn't sure about what dosage to start me on with the drugs they use or how I will respond.

 

Hopefully all of you will already have your bfp's when I start cycling :)

Glad you are happy so far Lisa.  Wow January seems so far away but I do know this time of year tends to go very quick so it will be here before you know it.  I was there yesterday too (early AM) and I noticed that they had a sign at reception that said they were closed on the 25th/26th of December so I'm guessing they are not scheduling anyone around that time.  Everyone deserves a break at Christmas :-)

Yesterday was the only day my hubby couldn't make it to a monitoring appointment so I took my little sister and I thought it was pretty neat that when they were talking about my follicles that they took the time to explain to her that the eggs were inside of there etc.

How are you feeling Charissa? That is great that they took the time to explain things to your little sister. I really was impressed with how much they seemed to care. I asked them about cycling in December and they said that they typically don't schedule anything for a 2 week period in December (unless necessary) because success rates for IVF are shown to go down in December likely because it is such a busy time of year for people. January does seem soooo far away but I think I'll think of it as good luck because that is right around the time we did our first IVF/ICSI 4 years ago ;)

Wishing you tons of luck with your retrieval...hoping you get lots of big healthy eggs.

 

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!

Hi Lisa, the doctor maps out the uterus during a mock test to determine the exact coordinates where to place the embroyos during transfer. S/he also checks the lining, ovaries and also the uterine blood circulation.

Does anyone know if Conceptia will do cycles over the month of December? It was mentioned that I may be able to start bcp after my mock transfer Dec. 8th...but I never thought about the fact that this will likely mean monitoring follicles over Christmas.

Not sure which protocol you will be doing but usually BCP lasts at least 21 days, then approx another 10days of suprefact after which the stimming starts. So if you start BCP, let's say, in mid-December, you will be stimming around third week of January.

Hi MelgarC,

This thread was from my last cycle which unfortunately was unsuccessful.

Tomorrow is my transfer for ivf #2.

My only advice is try to relax and go with the flow. Also try to get lots of rest and relax as much as you can and get lots of sleep.

Good luck to you and hopefully you'll see a BFP in April :-)

Hi girls.

Any updates from your cycles?
How are you all doing?

After three cycles in Hfx, we are considering trying treatment at Conceptia. I've had a look at a few threads on the forums here and see some positive "reviews". I'd love to hear how you guys feel about the Conceptia clinic in as much or as little detail as you'd like to share. PM me if you like. :)
