How was your experience with Trimble Spitzer at Naval Medical Center Portsmouth?
I don’t think she really know what she’s doing in regards to infertility. When I would explain my issues or concerns she would shrug them off and make it seem like I was wrong or crazy. When I mentioned a particular issue she said they would do anything differently with treatment. My new doctor now says I need to have surgery. They never performed any of my iui’s correctly, didn’t monitor correct or do the necessary bloodwork.

Describe the protocols Trimble Spitzer used in your cycles at Naval Medical Center Portsmouth and their degree of success.
I did several months of just Clomid, then several months of Letrozole for times intercourse. I then tried IUI’s, several on Letrozole with trigger shots. I would either have too many follicles or I would completely miss it and have to cancel the cycle or they would test my estrogen or uterine lining, so many issues. They also always timed my trigger shot & IUI incorrectly. They would do my shot and then within 24hrs sometimes less they would do my IUI...it’s supposed to be 36hrs after the shot!

Describe your experience with Naval Medical Center Portsmouth.
They don’t do the correct testing. Mainly bloodwork, they don’t understand that the uterine lining needs to be thicker which is probably one of the reasons I miscarried. They need to monitor better and time injections much better. Otherwise it’s a complete waste!

Describe the specific things that went wrong at Naval Medical Center Portsmouth.
Their procedures for IUI are all off. They also missed a huge scar tissue mass when they did my saline sonogram. My new doctor found it and now I need surgery to have it removed. I’ve wasted years with this doctor with horrible treatment protocols
