Describe the protocols Clare Heidtke used in your cycles at Petoskey Gynecology & Infertility and their degree of success.
Started with Clomid, went to letrozole. Did one IUI on letrozole. Took a month off meds, tried the old fashion way. No pregnancies but I was ovulating every month with help from medications. Did round of birth control then started injectable medications and an IUI. Now moving on to IVF. She can do a lot of the lead up for IVF — but I will go see Dr Shamma in Saginaw for egg retrieval and transfer.

Amazing. They don’t have the ability to do everything but what they can do for me is amazing.

I know I’m in the best hands possible.
