She [Dr. Catha Fischer] called me when things got rough but not before then... takes her time and is thorough. There were some times I did not feel we were talking about the same thing but that was fixed. Everything felt very methodical and I sometimes wished it was more personal along the way...There was no further testing of my husband's sperm or efforts to correct the morphology. We ended up with only one normal embryo to use. They did ICSI and PGS testing. Transferred one embryo during a medicated cycle my lining was over 16.
There was a clinical documentation error [at RMA of New Jersey] that delayed our cycle starting and caused undue stress...It is a machine. Everything is done the same for every person and it's not until something goes awry that a protocol is changed or re examined. Advocate for yourself and make sure all items are checked off the list before proceeding with expensive procedures...The nursing staff does a good job of not instilling hope where there is none.
