We start our IVF cycle soon but I have started priming with BCP and testosterone gel -- the gel is due to my low AMH. We'll be using Cetrotide, Menopur, Gonal-F, HCG, Dexamethasone, and Lupron trigger. No results, yet.

What specific things went wrong at Atlantic Reproductive Medicine Specialists?
Describe the specific things that went wrong at Atlantic Reproductive Medicine Specialists.
I was asked to go in for bloodwork on CD3, which I did. Later, I was told some bloodwork was missing so they drew blood again. When those results came in, I saw that it was a REPEAT of the labs done a week prior. I contacted asking them why, because I will be charged twice. They admitted the mistake and worked to remove the bill for the 2nd round.
