Describe the protocols Anate Aelion Brauer used in your cycles at Greenwich Fertility and IVF Center and their degree of success.
We did 3 IUIs with clomid that were unsuccessful. We move forward with IVF cycle with birth control pill, that resulted in 1 aneuploid embryo, and 1 highly mosaic embryo after PGS test. So, we decide not to proceed with transfer, but did another IVF cycle. For the 2nd IVF cycle, dr. Brauer modified the protocol to Estrogen patch protocol, and this time we got 1 euploid embryo. The embryo was transferred, and I'm currently, 28 weeks pregnant with a baby girl!!
