Good afternoon - Wow, it's been a while since someone posted on this thread. This is my FIRST post on ivf.ca !!

DH and I will be going to Repromed on April 28 - - anxious to get IVF underway.

How long should we expect it'll be before we can have E.T. ? How long is this process ? (assuming everything else goes okay... )

Hi Sydney,
I imagine that repromed will (at least SHOULD) do initial screening of your fertility even though you ahve male factor it is also important to make sure that all is well with you (standard screening is day 3 blood work/ultra sounds and a sonohystogram to make sure that all is well with the uterus) So that will take the month of may. Then, depending on the results and your age I would hope that you would be able to start your cycling in June, depending on the protocol you may have to have lupron for a period of time before doing the stimulation phase and then transfer.

Dr. D was a very nice doctor, super kind and the nurses were also fantastic (just expect to wait for an extended period of time!). We waited for a few hours, but, Dr. D was with us for over an hour!
Best of luck!

Diagnosed with endometrosis at age 19

5 pelvic surgeries

2 IVF, numerous FETs

2 different gestational carriers

Now mother of 2 year old twins.

I have been TTC for over 10yrs now and finally I have found someone (Dr.D) who tells it like it is- honest and aggressive, I feel like I am finally in good hands. This is my 4th and final try, previous cycles were doomed from the start because no one ever told me that without surgery, implantation was virtually impossible due to bilateral hydrosalpinx. My ex husband and I were literally "conned." (previous clinic was START now known as Lifequest) I am now undergoing a donor cycle after a 6 yr break from IVF, transfer is in 2 1/2 wks! November 22, 2010. All in all Repromed is a great clinic and i am happy with their services...soooooo excited!

Dr D and Dr S are both professional...but their staff are disorganized and apathetic.

They consistently did not check my chart, and were clueless about where I was in the process (for home insemination). They misinformed me about the next steps I needed to do (things I had already done), and then set me back in time a few months by neglecting to tell me what I actually needed to do to move forward.

Overall, I was left with a bad impression, despite the fact the doctors are good.

I am at another centre now (for unrelated reasons), but am actually grateful I ended up somewhere else given the incompetence of some of the support staff, RNs etc

If you do go to Repromed, check in with DrsD and S regularly to make sure staff are on the right track!

I should say "some of the staff" - obviously I am not talking about everyone there
