Describe the protocols Jennifer Brown used in your cycles at Northeastern Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
Started taking birth control on CD2 for 16 days. Had a uterine fibroid removed on day 17. Day 18 started stims taking 225 Gonal F and 150 Menopur mixed. That mixture was taken for 7 days. On day 8 of stims Ganirelix was added for 6 days. On stims day 13 I had to take HCG IM shot and a dose of Lupron. Stims day 14 just Lupron and stims day 16 was egg retreival. They retrieved 16 eggs of which 12 were mature and 8 fertilized with ICSI. After transfer tried Progesterone injection but wasn't able to give myself the shot so switched to suppositories.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The nursing staff had the same positive outlook as did Dr Brown. Made you feel like a human and not a number.

The clinic is up to date with their technology. Very clean and friendly atmosphere. I didn't have anything that I disliked about the clinic just that fact is it didn't work which is not a 100% guarantee anyways.

Describe Jennifer Brown's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Northeastern Reproductive Medicine.
Because of my age she was concerned with transferring multiple embryos but I was still at the age where it fell under their guidelines and I was able to have 2 transferred. She was very helpful in describing the risks of a successful transfer.
