Describe the protocols Bryan Hecht used in your cycles at MetroHealth and their degree of success.
My first month, we didn’t realize how low my AMH levels were, so we were told to just go home and try naturally because all my labs looked fine. After the AMH labs came back, Dr. Hecht became much more proactive and I was placed on 100 mg of Clomid for cycle days 3-7. I showed very little response and was started on Gonal-F for 4 days at 100 iu’s and produced 1 good follicle. I had an Ovidrel trigger shot followed by IUI. 2 weeks later, my beta test showed I was pregnant. I carried our baby for 14 weeks before our pregnancy ended abruptly due to chromosomal abnormalities. This cycle I did 100 mg of Clomid on cycle days 6-10 with no response and began Follistim 150 iu’s on cycle days 16-19 with no response. My dose was increased to 225 iu’s for cycle days 20-22. I find out tomorrow how we will proceed.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Bryan Hecht at MetroHealth.
