Describe the protocols William Burns used in your cycles at Cabell Huntington Hospital and their degree of success.
We did 2-3 IUIs that were not successful, as our issue is male factor only. We did IVF with ICSI and we're successful with our fresh transfer of 2 embryos. We had a singleton pregnancy and she's 2 years old now. We transferred the last frozen embryo 2019 and it didn't take. Dr Burns said we could have a good chance with another egg retrieval before I turn 40.

I loved the embryologist and the clinic. They are available 24/7 and we're always prompt to answer questions and always treated me well both in the clinic and on the phone.

There were some billing hiccups, but they were resolved quickly.
