Describe the protocols Doreen Hock used in your cycles at RMA of New Jersey and their degree of success.
We tried to use the embryos that were generated when I was with a previous doctor. However, after two failed transfers, we did a retreival with RMANJ and Dr. Hock believes that the egg quality will be better. I have also adjusted my diet for several months, which should help egg quality and will hopefully result in a successful transfer.

What specific things went wrong at RMA of New Jersey?
Describe the specific things that went wrong at RMA of New Jersey.
We did have to call multiple times to have them realize that paperwork had been provided by our previous doctor, but I think that was a miscommunication about how the paperwork from the previous doctor was laid out. They weren't familiar with the format of the information, so they didn't realize that they had it. It was a bit of a headache and required calls between both our previous doctor and RMANJ to get it sorted out with who had our information.
