Dr. Rosen took the time to really learn my body, how it worked and what course of action we should take. He always made my health a priority and never proceeded with a cycle of things weren't 100%.

Describe the protocols Gregory Rosen used in your cycles at Reproductive Partners Medical Group and their degree of success.
After 3 failed IUIs, we proceeded with having a hysteroscopic polypectomy to ensure my uterus was ideal for egg implantation. We used an antagonist protocol to suppress ovulation and stim: gonal F, Lupron and then a trigger shot. He had me on a low dose of aspirin and Synthroid to lower my thyroid level to enhance our chances. I ovulated naturally, had a good number of follicles and was "young" by fertility standards. Through our monitoring of my cycles for months prior to beginning IVF, he learned how my body responded to meds. We found that my body was not absorbing the progesterone suppositories well enough to sustain a pregnancy, so we changed to PIO injections.

Describe Gregory Rosen's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Reproductive Partners Medical Group.
Dr. Rosen constantly explained that he wanted us to have a healthy pregnancy and baby-this meant he was comfortable with transferring one embryo at a time. I felt the same way, and being a premature twin myself, I understood his reservations about transferring more than one. Especially given that our primary reason for needing IVF was male factor infertility.
What specific things went wrong at Reproductive Partners Medical Group?
- Failed to call with results
Describe the specific things that went wrong at Reproductive Partners Medical Group.
During our last transfer, in hopes of having a second child, our nurse forgot to call us with our negative pregnancy results. I already knew I wasn't pregnant, but I reached out to our doctor to let him know the nurse didn't call and it was after hours. He called us back himself with the results and was apologetic.
