I understand that the nurses [at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates] see dozens of patients every day but some could be a little more compassionate. Some days I felt like I was on an assembly like. Also, I don’t understand why they didn’t do a guided IUI to make sure the sperm was being injected at a good spot in my uterus...The cost is the frozen transfer was not clear and a lot more than I expected. After 4 IUIs, 2 IVF retrievals and 3 transfers, you’d think that some discounted rates would be offered.

Describe your experience with Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates.
I think that the dr staff is very qualified and knowledgeable. I think my biggest concern was the cost. There were no discounts for multiple treatments. Also the billing staff took very long to get back to us. I don’t like how they don’t refund credits on the accounts automatically when you aren’t in a cycle. I also think they overbook. Patients’ time is valuable also.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Paul Brezina at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates?
I felt like a human because Dr Brezina seemed genuinely concerned about our care. Sometimes I felt like a number with his staff and with him not giving us his true opinion of what we should do. He let us make the decision but I felt like maybe it wasn’t always the right decision. Almost like he wanted us to do a cycle just for the money.

How was your experience with Paul Brezina at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates?
We felt like he was a very compassionate doctor. Like he truly wanted to help. He could see that we really wanted to conceive. And think this may have been the down side. Him knowing how we really wanted this, I think maybe we shouldn’t have done some of the cycles but he did them anyway.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Paul Brezina at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates?
Just make sure to ask him for his honest opinion even if it is against your desires.
Describe the protocols Paul Brezina used in your cycles at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates and their degree of success.
If I remember correctly the first cycle was a luteal lupron protocol and the second was antagonist. Some of the medicines I took were birth control, ganirelex, menopur, clomid, crinone, prednisone, and pregnyl, along with fertility vitamins and estradiol.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates.
It was a cattle-call, but it was early in the morning and more convenient for me. Even being open on weekends was helpful.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Paul Brezina at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates.
There was no specific breakdown of what each procedure costs. That’s one thing I didn’t like. It was like a packaged deal. The cost is the frozen transfer was not clear and a lot more than I expected. After 4 IUIs, 2 IVF retrievals and 3 transfers, you’d think that some discounted rates would be offered. I know for a fact that some patients are given discounted package prices because a couple I know was given a 50% discount after the first cycle failed. We were never given such a huge discount. The cost is so expensive it seems that there is more the doctors could do financially to help patients
Describe Paul Brezina's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates.
Each transfer except the last was multiple embryo transfers. On the second transfer I think we should have transferred all three embryos instead of two and then coming back and transferring a single embryo. This is because the first cycle was unsuccessful and the doctor was already concerned about the egg quality. So why not just transfer all three on the second transfer instead of doing a third transfer that costs us more money.

We have had mixed experiences with Dr. Brezina's nursing staff [at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates]. Some have been organized, kind, and competent, and others have been quite the opposite. We caught a number of errors in several of the nurses' instructions to us (e.g., doses, protocols for administration of medications, when to schedule visits, etc), which resulted in fracturing of our trust in the overall nursing staff. However, I will say that, when we shared these experiences with Dr. Brezina, he was incredibly receptive to constructive feedback and he took it very seriously. Our comments were discussed with all of the physicians and nurses in the clinic, with policies implemented in an effort to improve the system. So I give Dr. Brezina a lot of credit for his proactive efforts to identify issues and improve the overall care provided by the practice.

Describe your experience with Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates.
I think the clinic itself is lovely, in terms of its aesthetics. It runs relatively smoothly, and we rarely wait for long periods of time. The layout is convenient, so that you can easily go from clinic room to US room to labs, which are all close together in the same space. The front desk staff are hit or miss - some are terrific, and some come across as disorganized and disengaged.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Paul Brezina at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates?
Dr. Brezina is an extraordinary physician, and an even better person. He has treated my husband and myself as if we were his family. He makes us feel like he cares genuinely about us, and he spends as much time as we need to help us understand and process difficult information and make difficult decisions. He personally calls us to explain complicated test results, and he has corresponded with us over email to ensure optimal transfer of information. We had a very complicated situation with our last cycle, in which we transferred our last remaining embryo, and it actually split on its own and we had identical twins implant. We were ecstatic, but then I had an intrauterine hemorrhage and one of the twins died, and we were devastated. Dr. Brezina suffered along with us, and his compassion and bedside manner were outstanding. In the spirit of full disclosure, my husband and I are both physicians, and I do research in the field of physician-patient communication - so for us, communication is a very important aspect of medical care. Dr. Brezina has exceeded our expectations in this area, and for this we are very grateful to him.

How was your experience with Paul Brezina at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates?
In my prior response, I have already shared details with regards to our high estimation of Dr. Brezina as an outstanding communicator. We have faced a number of sad situations, including the loss of one of our babies, and Dr. Brezina has always responded with deep and genuine empathy and presence. I think it is also important to share how much we respect and admire Dr. Brezina's fund of knowledge and his clinical acumen. Since I and my husband are both physicians, we have high expectations for the physicians in whom we entrust our medical care. Dr. Brezina trained at Johns Hopkins, and his knowledge and clinical judgment are outstanding. He never appears to be following an algorithm by rote; rather, he takes the time to familiarize himself with the details of each case, thinks outside of the box, and is willing to share his honest reflections and recommendations with you. He has mastered the art of active listening, and he remains self-confident while also humble and open about what he knows and what he does not know. I could not admire Dr. Brezina more; he is the best physician with whom I have ever entrusted my own medical care, and one of the best physicians whom I have ever known.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Paul Brezina at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates?
Trust him.
Describe the protocols Paul Brezina used in your cycles at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates and their degree of success.
I am embarrassed that I know few details; I made an intentional choice to remove myself from these details, because I worried that I would try to micromanage my own medical care in the context of my medical degree, while having zero actual expertise in RI. But this is what I remember. We had a failed IVF with a prior doctor, which was a truly horrific experience. When we switched to Dr. Brezina, we decided to start with an IUI. However, when my husband gave the sperm sample right before the procedure, we learned that his sperm had no motility, which was attributed to cross-linking of the tails secondary to an anti-sperm antibody (based on gross microscopy assessment). We went ahead and did the IUI procedure anyway, since we had already paid for it and I had already done the whole hormonal prep - but it was a failure, unsurprisingly. We then did an IVF (ICSI), and we opted to do a frozen cycle, because this would allow for higher doses of hormones in an effort to get more embryos to freeze (this decision was based off the fact that we had fewer eggs than expected retrieved during the first IVF cycle). They had expected to retrieve 15-20 eggs, but we ended up only with 9. We had 5 that fertilized, and only 2 that matured to 5-day embryos and were frozen. Dr. Brezina strongly advises using 5-day embryos, and we agree with his rationale for a variety of reasons. The first frozen transfer resulted in a chemical miscarriage. The second frozen transfer ended up splitting into 2 embryos (seriously, what are the odds?! Actually, I know that the odds are &lt;&lt;1%...it was an extremely rare event). I had an intrauterine hemorrhage at around 6 weeks, and we lost 1 of the twins, which was heartbreaking. But we were so blessed with the birth of our daughter in 2016, after years of trying to conceive. We are now hoping to do another IVF cycle next month. Unfortunately, my repeat labs show decreasing ovarian reserve, so there is urgency to proceed with this cycle, as well as poorer odds of success projected...but we are still trying to be hopeful. We are planning to do another frozen cycle, followed by transfer.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Paul Brezina at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates.
This is a painful topic...I have tried to block it out. When we did our first IVF cycle, although it was a horrible experience, it was largely paid for by insurance because we lived in a state in which IVF was mandated for coverage. In our current state, however, IVF is not covered at all by insurance. So we have done IUI, a frozen IVF cycle (retrieval), ICSI x5 embryos, storing 2 embryos, and 2 frozen transfers, all out of pocket. I honestly don't know exactly how much that all cost...probably $25,000. Possibly more. And are about to do it all again, which is a huge financial burden that we cannot afford, since we have a total of ~$500,000 in student loans between my and my husband's medical training. Thankfully, my parents are so kind and are helping us, otherwise it wouldn't be possible.
Describe Paul Brezina's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates.
Dr. Brezina is supportive of single or double embryo transfer, but he recommends eSET. I am a pediatrician, and I have years of experience caring for preterm infants in the NICU, which has significantly informed my preference for eSET. As much as I would so so love to have twins, I do not think I could live with a decision that increases the risk of premature delivery and its associated morbidity and mortality risks.

Describe your experience with Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates.
The clinic will call ahead most of the time to let you know how much you owe at your next appointment. You will set up everything else through your nurse or at your appointment. You will have to wait to see the doctor for a while, but if you’re just there to get bloodwork or an ultrasound, then they will get you in and out quickly.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with William Kutteh at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates?
Dr. Kutteh, his nurse, and the ultrasound techs knew our case, our concerns, and were very thorough in making sure we felt heard and were informed about each decision we made.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates. (Assigned nurse: Michelle)
My nurse ALWAYS called me back within an hour if I called her. She also always called to inform me of my next steps at every stage of our treatments.
How was your experience with William Kutteh at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates?
Dr. Kutteh is very knowledgeable and experienced. I appreciated his candidness at each stage of our fertility treatments. He was also willing to give us options and let us decide what treatment we wanted to do next. While he did not have the most comforting bedside manner, he was compassionate and understanding of my fears and feelings. I always appreciated his expertise in the field of recurrent pregnancy loss and infertility, so I felt like I was in good hands simply because of his vast knowledge.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of William Kutteh at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates?
He is very factual and will thoroughly review your file at every visit. If there is anything that concerns you, just bring it up and he’ll listen and address it.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with William Kutteh at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates?
I believe in looking at numbers and sometimes myself I get caught up in the numbers because I am a nurse and you do spend so much time using numbers to help determine a plan of care but I also believe that doctors and nurses should be an advocate for your patient. I have a low amh and slightly high fsh and I believe they want to push donor eggs on me more than me trying to use my own eggs. I want a doctor who will tell me not to give up on having a baby with my own eggs until we exhausted all options. I am learning through this journey I have to be my own advocate.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates. (Assigned nurse: Michelle )
My nurse is nice and I have spoken to one other nurse when mine was gone already and she was very nice too.
How was your experience with William Kutteh at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates?
I believe Dr. Kutteh is very smart and compassionate about his work and helping patients achieve their goal of getting pregnant. I was disappointed that when my 1st ivf cycle was canceled and changed to an IUI that he didn’t want to meet with myself and my husband to discuss a new plan and protocol. He did call me on the phone and we discussed it but I think that is something that needs to be done in person.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of William Kutteh at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates?
You have to be your own advocate. Do your own research as well.
Describe the protocols William Kutteh used in your cycles at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates and their degree of success.
My first ivf cycle I did 75 or menopur and 275 of gonol f. I made it to day 6 of stims when my cycle was changed to an IUI. They only found one follicle on my right ovary and the ultrasound tech said she couldn’t find my left ovary. (Which I have, it had never been removed). On day 6 my estrogen dropped and the said my progesterone was over one so they knew I would ovulate that follicle. I took the trigger shot at 5pm that night and the next day we went in for the IUI. When I finally talked to Dr. Kutteh over a week later he said he knew this was a possibility because of my numbers. We all knew going in to this I might not respond well. So this time we will be doing the Schoolcraft protocol with Lupron.

I think we paid them close to 10,000 for our first cycle not including meds or what we would have paid for the retrieval or transfer since we didn’t get that far. The money we didnt use we have as a credit for our next cycle.
Describe William Kutteh's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates.
We haven’t made it to an egg retrieval yet but I do believe if the patient wants you to transfer two embryos then they should. The patient should be able to have a say in that decision.

The clinic is very welcoming in general and the equipment and furniture is not warm. I am not aware of any weaknesses. The facility is in a well maintained building and the clinic is clean.

The entire support staff was great including the phlebotomist. They were patient and empathetic as well.
How was your experience with William Kutteh at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates?
Dr. Kutteh performed two procedures on me including a myomectomy prior to beginning my reproductive attempts. I felt confident with him as a doctor because of his years of experience as well as his knowledge. He was very blunt in providing information to both my husband and I so that we would be aware of a best course of action to take.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of William Kutteh at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates?
I would advise the prospective patient that they are in good hands with him and to remain positive throughout their treatment.
Describe the protocols William Kutteh used in your cycles at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates and their degree of success.
During treatment I think that I was on protocol 5 whereas I would take 2.5mg of Letrozole of cycle days 3, 5, and 7. In addition I took 75 mg of Follistim on cycle days 5, 7, and 9. Ultrasound was on day 10 and the nurse called me the same day as the ultrasound with instructions on when to take the trigger shot and the appointment time for IUI.
Describe the costs associated with your care under William Kutteh at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates.
I do not recall the exact cost of each IUI cycle because I used donor sperm so additional fees were required to store it and count the sperm.

Describe your experience with Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates.
They have a long waiting list because they are popular and very good at what they do, but they do return phone calls in a timely manner, even after hour phone calls on the weekend if you have an emergency. No question is too dumb for any of the staff, I really love their supportive manner. I would not go anywhere else.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Paul Brezina at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates?
He is fair but thorough, and does not give you false hope. If something doesn't work the first time, he moves on to the next best option in order to get the results you want. Because my IUI failed, we will be pursuing IVF as it is unlikely that IUI will ever be successful because of endometriosis/unexplained infertility.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates. (Assigned nurse: Dawn)
During my IUI cycle, Dawn could not have been more compassionate and encouraging or hopeful. She also made sure to go over specific numbers or values and what they mean in relation to your reproductive health as well as your partner's reproductive health. That really helps me to understand a large part of this process and have a calmer head on my shoulders.
How was your experience with Paul Brezina at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates?
I was referred by a friend to see Dr. Brezina and couldn't be happier. After years of depression and sadness from infertility, I feel like I am finally on my way to getting some answers and possibly adding to my family. I wouldn't use any other doctor.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Paul Brezina at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates?
He is fair, but he doesn't sugarcoat things. He is honest and wants to ultimately make there that you thoroughly understand everything going on with your treatment.
Describe the protocols Paul Brezina used in your cycles at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates and their degree of success.
Because of unexplained infertility and suspected and endometriosis, first we proceed with caution, but with a sense of reality because we knew that there were other underlying an unknown causes accompanying the infertility. If the IUI did not work, we thoroughly discussed other options which included birth-control leading up to IVF and possible removal of endometriomas if indicated after three months of birth control. I am so glad that there is a specific plan lined up for me, he seems to be a great ally in getting the results that you want.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Paul Brezina at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates.
My IUI cycle was about $600, but now because we know IUI will be unsuccessful and we are pursuing IVF, there is no telling how much that will cost, and I do not want to be hit with sticker shock.

The front clerks [Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates] were always very friendly, but nurses and people in the lab weren’t so great. One ultrasound tech was great, but the other was so rude and cold.... We had one of Dr. Bailey’s nurses give us false hope on our first IVF cycle. I also had someone else be very insensitive on the phone when it was confirmed to be a failed IVF cycle.... IUIs were about $1,000 each, egg retrieval was about $15K and each transfer was about $3K. Not to mention all of the medication.

Describe your experience with Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates.
There are not many options in Memphis, so you have to deal with the clinic. Dr. Bailey is worth dealing with the staff. The front clerks were always very friendly, but nurses and people in the lab weren’t so great. One ultrasound tech was great, but the other was so rude and cold.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Amelia Bailey at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates?
Dr. Bailey always took the time to answer our questions and made us feel at ease. I really felt her compassion for our situation.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
I did not have very good experiences with her nurses. She had several in the two years that I received treatment. They seemed inexperienced or not very compassionate - almost robotic. This was a very sensitive and stressful situtation and they at times seemed too robotic. I complained to her directly several times.
What specific things went wrong at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates?
  • Provided conflicting information
How was your experience with Amelia Bailey at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates?
She was amazing. I hope we don’t have trouble conceiving another child, but if we do, I feel comforted knowing that we could go back to her. She followed up with her with personal phone calls, had a great sense of humor and explained everything so we could understand it.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Amelia Bailey at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates?
Trust what she tells you. She is the doctor with experience. Don’t listen to “Dr. Google”.
Describe the protocols Amelia Bailey used in your cycles at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates and their degree of success.
We ended up doing 4 IUIs and then moved on to IVF. We had two frozen transfers. The first transfer resulted in a chemical pregnancy. The second resulted with out beautiful daughter. We had typical protocols - we did have a break in between one of our IUI cycles due to my uterine lining not thickening up enough, but she adjusted the medication. Every IUI cycle always looked “text book”, but we didn’t get pregnant. With PCOS, I think “typical” protocols were used.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Amelia Bailey at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates.
IUIs were about $1,000 each, egg retrieval was about $15K and each transfer was about $3K. Not to mention all of the medication.
Describe Amelia Bailey's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates.
Dr. Bailey said that due to my age and diagnosis she recommended single embryo transfer. I wish I would have pushed to transfer multiples, but I trust her and would have listened to her again.

They [the staff at Kutteh Ke Fertility] are so welcoming! Willing to work and communicate well! One incident comes to mind-my husband and I live over an hour away from the clinic (yes, they are good enough that we drive over and hour each way for each visit!) and we were traveling in one morning for my 4th ( I think it was 4th...) IUI. We had to be there around 9:30--well, unfortunately due to Memphis traffic we were running late--stuck in non moving traffic for a bit of time! Well, I was hormonal and freaking out-already worried that this IUI wouldn't work again and I was bawling my eyes out. They say that if you are late for your appointment that you might miss it all together...needless to say I was a mess! So we got to a point where I knew I had to call...Talked with the front desk ladies who were SOOOO understanding and nice to a bawling lady on the phone. They told us to be safe and get there when we could and not to worry about the time! Every person I have worked with in this clinic is AMAZING!

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Paul Brezina at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates?
Dr. Brezina was so nice. I felt like I was family. He never rushed me through anything, he always made sure we understood everything that was going to be happening and went over it in detail. He was kind and understanding to any of my concerns and even once when I mentioned adoption he told me to go home and pray about it before we started our journey. It was very comforting to know he would support us whichever road we choose. He also personally called to check on me during my treatments, which I did not expect.

Describe the protocols Paul Brezina used in your cycles at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates and their degree of success.
I did IVF. I used menopur (75 units) in the morning follistim 225 units at night. I later added ganirellix. I triggered with pregnyl and lupron. We never changed any of my protocol, they said I was exactly where I was expected to be. I took a total of 26 shots, not too bad! I produced only half the amount of eggs (like 10ish) of a person my age should (I am 27) so he tried to be aggressive with the treatment and get as many eggs as possible. They were very happy with my results as they far exceeded what they thought. They retrieved 9 eggs and I have 4 embryos that wre frozen right now. My embryos are all a grade except 1 is b. I was very pleased with my results, I am just now awaiting my FET cycle to start where I will take estradiol and crinone
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates.
You had to go in for monitoring appointments at the beginning of each morning, at 730. I live 2 hours away so this was sometimes inconvenient but the clinic was great about it. They didn't rush you through, you were saw within a timely manner and if you wanted to take a little longer during your ultrasound and ask questions then you definitely could. I would recommend this clinic and its abilities to anyone.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Paul Brezina at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Amelia Bailey at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates?
Dr. Bailey sat down at the start of treatment and really paid attention to my medical history. Then she explained how we were going to do a round of testing and the types of tests they would do. She was incredibly reassuring and saw me as a person, not just a set of data. Really gave me confidence that we would solve this problem.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
They are friendly and organized.
How was your experience with Amelia Bailey at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates?
Dr. Bailey was friendly and approachable. She was experienced but not jaded in a "been there, seen that" way. She made me feel like she had all the time in the world for me even though it was just an initial appointment. I feel incredibly comfortable with her as my doctor.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Amelia Bailey at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates?
Don't be nervous if this is your first experience with a fertility doc or the process because Dr. Bailey will help you through it (while making it seem simple to understand).
Describe the protocols Amelia Bailey used in your cycles at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates and their degree of success.
Dr Bailey suspected I have PCOS and devised a testing protocol that will detect PCOS and any other issue that's affecting my fertility. I had lots of blood drawn to begin the process and took medroxyprogesterone to to start my cycle (because it won't start on its own). At day three of my cycle, it was back for more bloodwork and a transvaginal ultrasound. I got back between days 6 and ten for a hysterosalpingogram (they insert dye into the uterus which backs into the fallopian tubes to check for blockages) and a sonohysterogram (they insert saline into the uterus to check the uterus for problems. Finally my husband has to produce a "sample" to make sure his sperm are good. I'm not sure where the treatment goes from here as the tests are not all done yet so we don't have a complete picture of the problem.

Describe the protocols Paul Brezina used in your cycles at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates and their degree of success.
We tried clomid and femara with IUIs. I had no response with femara and had to cancel that cycle. With IVF the first time, I did Follistim and Ganirelix. Hyper stimulated so froze the embryos and did 3 FETs total. My first resulted in an unexplained missed miscarriage of twins, boy and girl, both chromosomally normal. 2nd resulted in my daughter and a twin lost at 8 weeks. 3rd resulted in a chemical. We went through egg retrieval again, did PGS, and transferred one and I miscarried at 9 weeks.

I can not say enough good things about Dr. Brezina. We have recommended him to 4 different friends who were seeing other doctors that they weren’t happy with and each and everyone of them has gone to him and come away with the same feelings as us. He’s super smart and has a full understanding of everything on the medical side but he also knows what it’s like on the personal so he understands the emotions, the heartache, the breakdowns in a way that can’t be taught from a book. He gets it and it’s obvious.

Then he explainrd what it was, what I should expect and how to deal with it. Every appointment is important to him. Every patient is important to him. He helped me get my life back when i felt like the whole world was caving in on me.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Raymond Ke at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates?
Always go in with an open mind. And ask questions. Doesn't matter if you think they are silly or not ask them.

So far he had put me on metformin tp hekp control tbe pcos and it has worked amazingly. I went from 204 pounds to 160 and I feel so much better. Of course with pcos it's a day to day deal bit it helped. We tried Clomid for several months and that is when he told me that since my tube was blocked as well there was only one option. And that was IVF. He helped me understand, gave me tissues while I cried and gave my husband a very understanding look like I know bit I'm here for you all.
Describe Raymond Ke's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates.
He will only transfer 1 egg for me. And that I am grateful for. I don't want to put my self or my possible child at risk because there are too many.
