Second IVF Doctor was WAY better. She listened, explained things in words we could understand. We are happy we made the change. A little compassion goes a long way in a difficult situation. The other worker were maybe not quite as ‘happy’ as you might expect to see first thing walking into see the Doctor. But it is what it is.
So much was done the first day too, explaining the whole process, the cycles you go through, experimentation (not the mad scientist kind), Ultrasounds, and the blood draws…. so much blood.
We saw this Doctor several times, to get a better understanding of what might lay before us. Most we already knew, but got clarification on. Really a second opinion. Which is always good to have in a high cost procedure.
She agreed with the idea of going straight to IVF to increase our chanced. And their clinic actually provides a neat ‘package’ for IVF.
$23000 and you get 3 fresh cycles and 3 frozen cycles. That is 6 tried for less than the cost of 2 normally. And If it does not work out. Then the cost is refundable! Only extra cost is the injections you need. Which can be costly. But this is great information.
Time to take matters into our own hands and start out on the last leg of this process.
