During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Millie Behera at Bloom Repr Institute?
Dr. Behera listened to all of my concerns. Her treatment prevented a repeat issue of OHSS during our IVF treatment, which had occured with another Dr. during our first ever IVF treatment. They were just as excited as we were when we became pregnant, and were just as upset when we found out our baby had Turner Syndrome, having a 99% chance of miscarriage. When I had bleeding, instead of directing me to a closer Dr., they made time for us to come in and check on our baby. They took ultasounds once a week for 4 weeks. When our baby passed, they were gentle and caring. They were just as devastated as we were. When I was in shock and couldn't believe we had lost her, they let me come in the next day to check...even during the following 2 weeks as I went through my miscarriage naturally. They answered my texts in the middle of the night when I miscarried at home, after midnight, to answer my questions and put me at ease. We had the choice to keep our baby and bury her at home with us. They are extremely encouraging several months later as we are getting ready for our 1st FET with them. The entire staff is warm, welcoming, and truly loving!

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Millie Behera at Bloom Repr Institute?
Get your medical records and make an appointment to see her. We wish we would have come to her much sooner.
Describe the protocols Millie Behera used in your cycles at Bloom Repr Institute and their degree of success.
We qualified for a clinical study which helped us afford our IVF cycle at a cost which was substantially less than typical. She recognized my previous issue of OHSS from my first IVF cycle with another doctor and had me start and continue at a lower dosage of medication to prevent it from happening again. She saw I had a high prolactin level, began treating it, but also sent me for an MRI which helped diagnose me with a benign tumor on my pituitary gland. She also had me take CoQ10 and baby aspirin during my IVF cycle and now our current FET cycle, which we had never even heard of as something I should have taken. I was told to eat a lot of protein and drink lot of Gatorade for hydration on top of water. I became pregnant for the first time after TTC for 5 1/2 years. Unfortunately, our baby had a chromosomal anomaly and we lost her at nearly 10 weeks, but even that experience was handled amazingly. I was able to go through it naturally and lay our baby to rest at home.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at Bloom Repr Institute.
As a teacher, I can't leave during the day, so they worked with me to allow me to head over after work. Wait time was minimal for the most part.
