[Dr. Cardenas Palecek] treated us like family and walked us through each step...She is very straight forward and direct. Gave us the information we were looking for and were able to move forward with the process as a whole. Guided us but my no means lead us towards things we didn't want or need. Understood our situation and made us feel like this is normal and plenty of women and LGBTQ couples go through what we were also going through.
We started off with a baseline and all test were preformed to make sure our numbers were good [at Mayo Clinic]. Started with clomid cycles which produced a sufficient amount of eggs and also the HCG shot to active ovulation. IUI performed with donor sperm...They [nurses] were the best to work with! Could not have chosen a better team that made us feel like family...For 6 IUIs plus meds, donor sperm, testing roughly $20000

Describe the protocols Gabriela Cardenas Palecek used in your cycles at Mayo Clinic and their degree of success.
We started off with a baseline and all test were preformed to make sure our numbers were good. Started with clomid cycles which produced a sufficient amount of eggs and also the HCG shot to active ovulation. IUI performed with donor sperm. Moved to Letrozole instead of clomid to help thicken lining. Did an HSG test, tubes were open. Final IUI were placed on hormone injections. Out of all 6 cycles, all were negative pregnancies except one false positive chemical pregnancy.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Mayo Clinic. (Assigned nurse: Rhiannon Riley)
They were the best to work with! Could not have chosen a better team that made us feel like family. They prayed for us each and every time and were always uplifting. Any and all questions were answered. They were patient with us when we had tons of questions. It was also a learning experience for them as well as we were one of the few same-sex couples to be doing IUI.
Describe your experience with Mayo Clinic.
Make sure to check your billing. Systems have errors but they were able to fix ours and were glad that we brought them to their attention. Make sure to bring all your insurance information as they will need that. Also, know what your insurance covers before doing any procedures. I would definitely get pre-treatment estimates.
