How was your experience with Diane Woodford at Bloom Repr Institute?
Dr. Woodford has a lot of experience. I had a ton of questions at the initial consult and she answered all of them for over an hour at the end of her day. She was thorough and specific without letting me get overly emotional, she stuck with me on what she felt she could and couldn't do. She recommended 3 more IUI's since we previously had a chemical pregnancy on one of our previous 3 at another clinic. When I explained that I was ready for a more aggressive strategy to do IVF, she explained what the next steps would be. I feel she got our medication protocol right the 1st round (we retrieved 16 eggs,15 mature). She took into account our medical history, age, etc. and then monitored me along the way to alter the dosage as necessary. Both my HSG test and my egg retrieval were great. I thought I would feel pain from these and I didn't have any pain the next day. I was scared to go under anesthesia and she held my hand until I was out, then she came by my bed when I woke up after to tell us we got great numbers from the retrieval. When we had our consult on the embryos, she reviewed in detail her thoughts of what happened (we went from 16 retrieved, to 12 fertilized, to 2 embryos at end Day 7). We lost 10 from day 3-7 and she went through what bad embryo quality tells us. I feel that she gave us very honest advice and support on what to do next. We waited a cycle to give us time to try improving embryo quality, we will try another retrieval soon with an increased medication dosage.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Diane Woodford at Bloom Repr Institute?
Do not let your emotional state get in the way of hearing what advice Dr. Woodford can give you. She is more scientific in her delivery of advice but I found that I could get straight, direct answers from her which helped us make a confident decision. She is very intelligent and cares about her field and patients.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Diane Woodford at Bloom Repr Institute?
Dr. Woodford was thorough during our consultation. She explained in detail what our options were and straight forward about what our expectations could be. When I went in for my retrieval, I was emotional about being under anesthesia, Dr. Woodford held my hand until I was out. I had an HSG and a retrieval done with Dr. Woodford and both I felt little to no pain. I feel she understands her job very well and takes a more scientific approach to understanding your obstacles. That works great for me because I feel she cares and is honest about what to expect. From the beginning she created a medication protocol that took into account our medical information and not a standard "1st time IVF" protocol.
Describe the protocols Diane Woodford used in your cycles at Bloom Repr Institute and their degree of success.
We've done one IVF stimulation so far with Dr. Woodford. Due to my age (37) she started with a larger than normal Menopur and Gonal-f protocol. Day 1-6, Menopur 75iu & Gonal-f 300iu, Day 6-12 Cetrotide 25 added, Menopur increase to 150iu. Day 9 Gonal-f increase to 375iu. I had 17 & 9 follicles to start, this protocol produced 16 eggs, 15 mature, 12 fertilized, 2 embryos sent for PGS testing, 1 normal & 1 abnormal (not mosaic). I really feel she nailed the "drug cocktail" right the first time to retrieve 16 eggs.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Bloom Repr Institute. (Assigned nurse: Nicole)
Nicole is wonderful. She always returns my emails or phone calls promptly. Any questions I ask, she will find the answers from the doctor. She gives me a phone call with test results every time. She works with you to send medications the pharmacy when you need them (I used 2-3 pharms). She has been informative, supportive and a great care coordinator. I am so grateful she is a part of the Bloom team.
Describe your experience with Bloom Repr Institute.
Bloom is a modern clinic with up to date equipment, they slow down in December for a week to have their lab maintenance done. The whole Bloom team really works together well to get you the information and medical assistance you need. IVF is a complicated overwhelming process and they really make it easier here. They are coordinated and caring. I felt I could get help from anyone I spoke with when I was there (even if that wasn't their direct job, they would find someone to answer my question right away). I felt very supported there and that I could go through this very difficult process successfully.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Diane Woodford at Bloom Repr Institute.
Full IVF (stimulation & transfer cycle) w/o medication was $13,900 + $1,800 PGS embryo biopsy. PGS testing at offsite facility $350 per embryo or $1600 for up to 8 embryos. Medications $3,695. Everything else they billed medically and I paid my insurance co-pay or deductible. This saved me $200 per consult, $270 per ultrasound, $50-75 per blood test.
Describe Diane Woodford's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Bloom Repr Institute.
We discussed single vs multiple embryo transfer. Dr. Woodford highly recommends a single transfer of a normal embryo due to the high risk of twins. However she would transfer up to 2 if we decided to due to my age.

Dr Woodford definitely knows what’s she is doing! She is very knowledgeable about treatments and personalized them for her patients. She is also kind and funny which goes a long way when you are in the midst of infertility and doing treatments!... We would do a baseline ultrasound somewhere between CD’s 1-3. Once we were cleared, I would start taking oral femara in CD’s 3-7. I would the. Go in for another ultrasound to see that my eggs responded to the medication.

Describe the protocols Diane Woodford used in your cycles at Bloom Repr Institute and their degree of success.
We would do a baseline ultrasound somewhere between CD’s 1-3. Once we were cleared, I would start taking oral femara in CD’s 3-7. I would the. Go in for another ultrasound to see that my eggs responded to the medication. Once that was confirmed, I was instructed to do my trigger Shot (ovidrel) at home that night at a specific time. I was also scheduled for my IUI 48 hours later. On the day of the IUI, my husband gave his sample in the office. It was processed/washed and we returned 2 hours later for the actual IUI. Once the IUI was done, I was told to lay still for 10-15 minutes and then we were done. I was started on vaginal progesterone cream th day after my IUI. I had a blood progesterone test a week after my IUI and a boood pregnancy test 2 weeks after my IUI. Both IUI’s resulted in a negative result :(

I can’t say enough good things about Tamara! She did my ultrasound and my first IUI! She was so sweet, gentle, compassionate and kind! She made mme feel special and cared for! She was always so encouraging and supportive! I can’t say enough good things about her!!
Describe your experience with Bloom Repr Institute.
They are SO fast! They get you in for appointments so quickly and are still so thorough! I loved everything about them! The only thing that was a little difficult was getting someone on the phone when I would call. I would always have to leave a message and they would call me back-which was fine but it’s hard to wait when you’re doing fertility treatments!
Describe the costs associated with your care under Diane Woodford at Bloom Repr Institute.
Our IUI was 1170.00 with the ultrasounds. We paid additional money for the medications and trigger shot.
