How was your experience with Christopher Allemand at ART Fertility Program of Alabama?
Dr. Allemand was second opinion for my husband and I. My husband is two years status post a vas reversal. We had another doctor before who never changed our meds or our plan. My husband and I became pregnant with our first doctor and IUI. However we miscarried at eight weeks. We went through two additional IUIs and the doctor stated we needed to move to ivf. We felt pressured and did not have a clear understanding as to why that should be our path if an IUI was successful once already. We then saw Dr. Allemand. He reviewed our records, discussed his opinions, and we all made a plan together. He understood our concerns for not wanting to move forward so abruptly with ivf. We will soon be working on our third IUI with Dr. Allemond but he has changed our meds each cycle to help assure he is doing all he can before fully discussing the possibility of ivf.
