Describe the protocols Kristina Hawkins used in your cycles at Central Georgia Fertility Navicent and their degree of success.
My first 6 mo the seeing Dr. Hawkins we ran many test to see what our issues were. These test included seman analysis, saline ultrasound and blood work.
My first medicated cycle we did 50
Mg of clomid to see how I would respond. She monitored the whole first cycle. I responded well, but I did not conceive.
My second cycle I did the same medication without monitoring. I conceived. It ended in an ectopic pregnancy that ruptured my left Fallopian tube.
Third cycle we did 50 mg of clomid, monitoring, failed round.
Fourth we bumped up the dosage to 100 mg and monitoring. Another failed round
Fifth round we went to 150 mg and monitoring and plus the trigger shot. Also another failed round.
Each time my follicles grew beautifully and I ovulated I just could not conceive. This is when she offered us a referral to an ivf clinic.

In my honest opinion, her nurses were awful. They never return phone calls. See even made jokes about me only having one tube due to an ectopic pregnancy.
Describe your experience with Central Georgia Fertility Navicent.
I do t have anything good to say about the clinics nurses. That is who patients see 90% of the time. Most of the time when I came in they had no idea what was going on I would have to remind them where I was in my cycle and why I was there.
My biggest advice to new patients would be advocate for yourself. Do not let the nurses push you around.
