Dr. Hansen encouraged one embryo, but left the decision to me. I chose two embryos each time and he did not argue...[he] was just the right balance of warm and professional...He spoke to my husband and myself for over an hour, about IVF My husband had previously been tested and we knew that IVF was our only choice..
I rarely had to wait more than 10 minutes for my appointments at OU...I always received prompt, same-day call backs from the same person [nurse], when I left messages of questions I had, between visits...I spent about $10,000 on IVF, each time, with ICSI for both...you will not see your doctor every time, especially if you start your treatment on the wrong rotation, because they teach classes. You will be something of a group project, however, it is an outstanding group
How was your experience with Karl Hansen at OU Physicians Reproductive Health?
I met Dr. Hansen through a virtual appointment during the Covid-19 lockdown. He spoke to my husband and myself for over an hour, about IVF My husband had previously been tested and we knew that IVF was our only choice, due to his sperm count. Dr. Hansen didn't make us repeat these tests, needlessly, and didn't discuss other things that either weren't possible with my husband's sperm count, like IUI, nor did he broach using donor sperm. He was very clear about our chances of conceiving and I never felt like he'd given us false hope, even after my first cycle failed. He was compassionate and clear that he thought my husband's sperm was the problem. He didn't push us to use donor sperm, but was also clear that he thought it would be more effective. When we began our second treatment, I started on a different rotation and didn't see Dr. Hansen quite as much, because OU is a university facility and all of their doctors teach. The doctors I saw in his place had all of the necessary information needed, however, and I still felt like they thought of me as an individual. Dr. Hansen did almost everything the first cycle and did a wonderful job, at that. The second time, he was not there for the egg retrieval, which I would have appreciated knowing in advance, but I'm not sure who is to blame for that procedural fumble.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Karl Hansen at OU Physicians Reproductive Health?
Dr. Hansen is wonderful, but OU is a university clinic. It's the best in the area, according to all CDC records, but you will likely not see Dr. Hansen, every time, because he teaches classes. He might not do your retrieval and he might not do your transfer. I had experiences with every doctor in the clinic, during my two back-to-back cycles and they were all great, though I'd have preferred to only see Hansen.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Karl Hansen at OU Physicians Reproductive Health?
Dr. Hansen was just the right balance of warm and professional. I felt cared for and like an individual, but I also didn't feel like he was trying overly hard to comfort me or manage my feelings, which I specifically did not want. When my first cycle failed, he called me on a Sunday and spent about 15-20 minutes on the phone with me, discussing why and what we could do differently. He guessed that my husband's sperm was the culprit and while he supported trying again and suggested collecting the sample closer to fertilization, he was very clear that if we used donor sperm, he felt we would have much better odds. I never felt pressured, either way, and my husband and I were able to really consider all of the facts to make an informed decision.
Describe the protocols Karl Hansen used in your cycles at OU Physicians Reproductive Health and their degree of success.
My first cycle was pretty standard. I started with 150 ml of Follistim and 1 unit of menopur. After six days, the Follistim was upped to 225 ml. I took Ganirelix for three days, stopped for one and triggered on day 10. I responded well, with 21 eggs, 16 mature. The second time, I started with 175 ml of Follistim, which was dropped after a few days and then once more. I took Ganirelix for three days, stopped for 1, and triggered on day 9. This produced 22 eggs, 16 mature.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at OU Physicians Reproductive Health.
I honestly don't remember if I had an assigned nurse, in large part because everyone was wearing masks and it was often a different person taking my blood. I think I was, though, because I always received prompt, same-day call backs from the same person, when I left messages of questions I had, between visits. Regardless, I don't remember any nurses being anything less than compassionate and friendly, even when one mentioned that she hadn't had power for nine days, because an ice storm hit during my second cycle. One nurse even comforted me when I finally broke down after my second egg retrieval.
Describe your experience with OU Physicians Reproductive Health.
OU is a university facility, which means that its' innovative and has the best success rates in the area, as a result, according to CDC records. It's also the cheapest in Oklahoma and many of the surrounding states. My actual IVF treatment, without medication, was less than $10,000. This also means, however, that you will not see your doctor every time, especially if you start your treatment on the wrong rotation, because they teach classes. You will be something of a group project, however, it is an outstanding group. I had experiences with every doctor and they were all overwhelmingly positive. I had the option of another nearby clinic, which cost more and would allow me to see the same doctor for every visit, but that clinic's ratings were nowhere near as good as OU's and all that mattered to me was getting a successful pregnancy, which I did, with OU. There were also many times when I was seen with a resident in the room, so be prepared to have two or three people present during ultrasounds and procedures. The doctors will always discreet, so it didn't make much difference to me, since I was completely covered and they were all looking at the ultrasounds. I was even asked if a resident could view my egg retrieval and gave approval, though I don't know whether or not I actually would have been allowed to refuse. My transfers seemed to be done in a room full of people, but by this time, I didn't care who watched, especially if it would train future doctors to help other women get pregnant, because I just wanted a baby.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at OU Physicians Reproductive Health.
I rarely had to wait more than 10 minutes for my appointments at OU. The one time I did was my only Friday appointment and was, unfortunately, just a couple of days after my retrieval, so sitting in the chair was quite painful, as I was on medication to prevent OHSS. However, I probably had over two dozen appointments here, in four months, so I consider that to be pretty good odds, albeit bad timing. If you arrive early, there will be a line at the door and they'll take names in order, so that does help, if you want to get in and out, but you shouldn't have to wait much past your appointment time, either way. A nurse always took me back and promptly did my bloodwork, or I could wait up to five or ten minutes for an ultrasound. I will probably have IVF flashbacks for the rest of my life, when I see HGTV, though, because that's what always played on the TV's.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Karl Hansen at OU Physicians Reproductive Health.
I spent about $10,000 on IVF, each time, with ICSI for both. This is lower than anything I've ever seen online. The medication was around $4,000, likely because the issue was not with me, but my husband, and I responded very well. This clinic uses SandsRX, which operates out of Texas and offers excellent, timely service. One day delivery is an option at no additional charge and extremely reliable, but the clinic has backups, if you're not keeping track and run out. Keep track of your medications, absolutely, becasue that is all on you and I don't think that's unique to this clinic. I used California Cryobank for sperm donation, the second time, and that was an additional $2500, because OU wanted me to order two vials. We only used one and the other is frozen, however I doubt we'll use it, because we're pregnant with twins and froze 6 additional embryos. The cost to freeze was an additional charge, around $1000.
Describe Karl Hansen's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at OU Physicians Reproductive Health.
Dr. Hansen encouraged one embryo, but left the decision to me. I chose two embryos each time and he did not argue.

What specific things went wrong at OU Physicians Reproductive Health?
  • Failed to convey critical information
Describe the specific things that went wrong at OU Physicians Reproductive Health.
I was having a miscarriage and they gave me the options to either take a pill, wait 2 weeksfor it to happen naturally, or have a D&C. I waited the 2 weeks like the my doctor recommended, and it wasn’t happening naturally, so I decided to have a D&C. Then they said they couldn’t get me on the schedule for it for another 6 weeks. I could only discuss this with the nurses and schedulers and could never get ahold of the actual doctor. Once I finally demanded to speak to Dr. Hansen, he got me in for a D&C the next day. Also, during an egg retrieval, Dr. Hansen caused internal bleeding into my uterine cavity by puncturing my uterus during the operation. It was extremely painful, and I felt there wasn’t much empathy for that, if any. He seemed more concerned for himself than for me. The treatment plan going forward from that regarding embryo transfers was then altered, and I believe I could have had a different outcome had it not been for this very painful mistake.

Describe the protocols Karl Hansen used in your cycles at OU Physicians Reproductive Health and their degree of success.
Treatment strategy was after completing timed intercourses and 1 IUI with another physician. He advised that we continue IUIs and gave their statistical chances. He also gave the option of oral meds or injectables. He did explain that there would only be a marginal increase of success with injectables with our diagnosis. We completed 4 cycles and then met again to discuss IVF when we were ready. We then discussed that given that I make a lot of eggs, he expected that we would produce a lot of embryos. He did suggest using ICSI considering we had unexplained infertility. If enough embryos were made, he recommended fertilizing one with ICSI and one with natural fertilization in the Petri dish. We did injectables and like he anticipated, I made a lot. I was concerned about OHSS and he listened. He prescribed cabergoline. Our egg retrieval went as expected and I did not feel anything. He was at the bedside as soon as I woke up. He did this face to face which I appreciate. We did our transfer with one of his colleagues, Dr. Craig. It was wonderful. She played music and it was full of hope. Unfortunately, the cycle failed. Dr. Hansen called me as soon as the results returned. I was bleeding so I knew it wasn’t positive but I appreciated his phone call so very much.

Hansen was instrumental in determining the best way to work closely with urologist given the unknown outcome of the male fertility factor. I already had eggs frozen from years before due to possible chemo treatment that ended up not taking place. Therefore we had to determine whether or not to undergo another fresh cycle or use frozen eggs or do both those options in conjunction with my husband's procedure -weighing the pros and cons of each scenario. Unfortunately, my husband procedure was not successful, therefore I am grateful we did not do a fresh cycle.

I used drugs including Clomid and progesterone shots to prepare for the IUI cycle. I completed one IUI cycle with Dr Hansen, which was unsuccessful, and also did a HSG scan prior to this. I took a one month break before the next IUI and during that time became pregnant with no assistance. I am now 27 weeks pregnant. Dr Hansen was very happy for us! One previous OB mentioned that he had noticed an apparent correlation between patients who had the HSG procedure and subsequently fell naturally pregnant the following month or two. This happened in our case, so we will wonder if maybe it made a difference for us. This other OB theorized that perhaps the HSG dye clbeing flushed through the tubes cleared away congestion in the tubes to increase the likelihood of fertilization.

Describe Karl Hansen's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at OU Physicians Reproductive Health.
We briefly spoke about this when we were choosing our course of treatment and he gave us statistics that would have made us comfortable with either option. It was very helpful and informative because we thought we would automatically want to transfer 2 but that wasn’t the cas after hearing th stats

And 3 IUIs but none resulted in pregnancy...He has incredible bedside manners but you’ve have to be clever to get him to laugh...[he] is warm & calm. He’s very patient and thorough
[nurses of OU Physicians Reproductive Health] are Caring and compassionate...It’s a teaching facility, so there may be students there...[est cost] Femara was under $10 with insurance, trigger shot $100 and IUI I think around $400 give or take.

Describe your experience with OU Physicians Reproductive Health.
The clinic is very streamlined and organized. I would say make sure to have them run your insurance for labs and office visits. The clinic is easy to find, centrally located in OKC, and on IUI day its close enough to many different brunch spots. The nurses will even hold your hands through the IUI if you are like me and need lots of support! I have been with Dr. Hansen since I was 19. He has incredible bedside manners but you’ve have to be clever to get him to laugh. He is very knowledgeable. It’s a teaching facility, so there may be students there. Sometimes the students are hands on but I’ve mostly had good experiences. Be sure to ask for a cost sheet for estimates on different things like semen analysis, IUI and ivf

I'm still early on in treatment, but so far I have loved everything about my interactions with Dr Hansen. He is very knowledgeable and patient. He gives a lot of information when you ask for it. I have a very clear picture of my treatment moving forward.... He did say he recommended IUI first as a general practice, but he did not require it. Because I do not like the low success rate of IUI and my insurance allows me to skip to IVF, he was willing to do that.
The clinic [OU Physicians Reproductive Health] seems well organized and I have not had any issues with them to date. Everyone is compassionate and has been fairly easy to work with so far. There was a little confusion about insurance billing my first appointment, but it seems to have been worked out pretty quickly.... My insurance does cover some of my treatment. The clinic requires a $1000 deposit before getting on the IVF schedule.

He [Dr. Karl Hansen] takes his time to explain everything. He seems to be a doctor very by the book and although he do his research on clinical trials he is very optimistic to try new medicine. It’s the best bed side manner we had and he is very detailed oriented.... Cycle 1- 5mg femara, Trigger, IUI = one follicles, no pregnancy. Cycle 2- 7.5mg femara, Trigger, IUI = 2 follicles, no pregnancy Cycle 3 - 10mg femara, Trigger, IUI = 3 follicles, Chemical pregnancy Cycle 4 - 10mg femara, Trigger, IUI = 4 follicles, no pregnancy
All the nurses at this clinic [OU Physicians Repro Health] is very friendly and I know each by name and voice when I call. They are so supportive and passionate. They really make you feel welcome. The nurses takes their time to explain your medication and even document it for you to take home. Looks like one big family there. I love it!... The main weakness is you cannot access you medical information online. I was very surprised that their is no portal online and we can only use online to pay our bill. The strength, the clinic is pretty new and it kept very clean with lovely gardening.

Dr Hansen is very good at what he does. He allows you as a patient to decide the best course to follow based on your individual situation. While giving you all the information you need to help make the best decision for treatment. He guides you instead of deciding for you. ... I had 4 IUIs. ... I used clomid on my first cycle but knew that was not a good option for me so I went straight to injectables.
The only thing that is somewhat frustrating is the wait times to get an appointment [OU Physicians Reproductive Health] and when you go to your appointment you will usually have to wait as well. ... Great nursing staff. No issues. ... He [Dr. Hansen] suggests a single embryo transfer is the best option because of the risks involved for the mother and unborn fetuses due to the fact that there is such a high likelihood that multiples will result with a multiple transfer, but he still left that decision completely up to us which I like very much.

I had 4 IUIs. Two successful but resulted in miscarriages and two negative outcomes. I used clomid on my first cycle but knew that was not a good option for me so I went straight to injectables. Which I had more success. But I did not get the end result I wanted. A healthy baby. So we plan to move forward using donor eggs. We have not decided if we will use fresh or frozen eggs.

He [Dr. Karl Hansen] is patient, straight forward, and sensitive. He answered every question I had, knew when to push the limit and when to back off, and was keenly aware of the financial burden and exhausted every effort to make sure we had help...We started with 50mg of clomid and timed intercourse.

The process of trying to speak to a human on the phone [at OU Physicians] is a little trying, at times. But they always call back, and their demeanor in person makes up for it.

I was extremely impressed with Dr.Hansen. The appointment did not feel rushed and he answered all my questions, educated me on lab results and discussed next steps. He was sensitive to our journey and performed only necessary tests. He was honest but still had a caring way of delivering information.... Mr.Hansen provided my husband and I with all of our options. He listened to our concerns and educated us on areas we had questions in.
Wait time [at OU Physicians Reproductive Health] has never been longer than 15 minutes and I like that the location of the office is secluded in the office building.
