Describe the protocols Julia Johnson used in your cycles at Boston IVF and their degree of success.
We began with testing. We had reoccurring pregnancy loss and we discovered that we also had male factor issues due to low motility and count. We began with IUI because of insurance and we did 3 unsuccessful cycles. Dr. Johnson was honest with one cycle as we had very few quality sperm to use. She then researched our insurance and suggested that we move to the ICSI IVF cycle. The first cycle I began to show signs of OHSS and the meds prescribed to slow it down ended up killing the eggs. The next cycle my meds were adjusted and we went all the way. We had 3 embryos, did a 5 day transfer and froze 2. Two years later we did a frozen transfer with our second son. We are still paying for the one embryo we have frozen.

It’s clean, well run, organized and comfortable. The staff is caring and you know you can count on them. It’s a comfortable place. My partner said he felt happy about the way they ran it, especially with what was required of him while there.

Describe Julia Johnson's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Boston IVF.
They were very clear about doing just one, especially given the quality of the embryos. They were more concerned with the outcome and the resulting pregnancy. They were not about putting in as many as possible just to reach a pregnancy. I felt this was the right approach because it showed they were confident in their care and knowing what a risk multiple pregnancies are.

Describe the protocols Julia Johnson used in your cycles at UMass Memorial and their degree of success.
I have a blocked tube. She did not think unblocking would necessarily solve the problem. Sometimes I wonder if I should have just done the procedure anyway because I felt I lost a few months trying while I waited for new insurance to kick in that would cover IUI. She said I only had a small chance the tube would stay open.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
I have only spoken with them on the phone. They once called and said I was good to go on an IUI only to call back and say there was a mistake bc they didn't see that the egg was on the side that was blocked. That was frustrating as I feel care should always be taken to read the chart first.
Describe your experience with UMass Memorial.
Go for an early morning apt. The lab is kind of hit or miss.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Julia Johnson at UMass Memorial.
I live in mass and have insurance that covers my procedures. I pay for my insurance out of pocket. It is $440/mo.
