Describe the protocols Amy Schutt used in your cycles at Baylor / Texas Childrens and their degree of success.
She used 100mg of clomid for the IUIs and the timed intercourse. Then she used 450 of gonal f, 2 vials of menopur, cetrotide and the trigger. She also used HGH to prime. Her rationale (even when I asked her about mini ivf) was that with DOR women, this was the protocol research confirmed worked best. She also mentioned that if it didn’t work out, she would be happy to try something different.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Amy Schutt at Baylor / Texas Childrens.
Each iui was $600 out of pocket, and the clomid as well. Then my husband changed jobs and had a better insurance that covered 10k in fertility meds and 10k in procedures. I still had to pay over 5k out of pocket for medications and I’m still waiting for the procedure bills. The insurance won’t cover a 2nd ivf cycle, and out of pocket costs are around 13k
