I am just coming out after a year of recovering from my 2nd failed IVF/IVF chemical pregnancy. I needed the time to indulge in other areas of my life, as the cycle takes over all of my heart and soul when I am in the thick of it. Soooo…I am ready to start again, but think I will try a new clinic this time. I was at RMA, which has a great rep and stats, but something never really felt right. I felt like a head of cattle, actually, and never found the coordinator we had to be very communicative or nice. My doc was very nice, but I barely ever saw him. And I always wished I had chosen the female doctor there, as I met her once, mid-cycle and thought she was awesome, and perhaps more sensitive to my feelings.
So, I figure that since there are such great clinics elsewhere in NYC, where I live, I should try somewhere else. We are thinking NYU or Cornell, but we’re open minded. I live in Brooklyn, so NJ is just too far/expensive to get to on a regular basis, as are other places outside the city.
Our problem is male factor. We have very low sperm counts, though with very good motility. My levels are still great, although I am 38 almost 39. Both my cycles produced very few eggs. In fact, I did have one cancelation due to low response. I have since lost 30 pounds, and so has my DH, so we are slim and trim, and hopefully that’ll help a little.
Finally, I have Oxford Freedom and need someone who will take that.
Anyway, I am trying to get into this last cycle with a level head, and welcome your recommendations for both a clinic and specific doctors there, as I really want to find the best doctor so at least I knew I tried my best.
