Describe the protocols Marie Werner used in your cycles at RMA of New Jersey and their degree of success.
I went straight to IVF with ICSI given some male infertility issues we had, in addition to my struggles with PCOS. After my first egg retrieval, after genetic testing, I only had 1 viable embryo, so my husband went to a urologist and then we did a second retrieval after he had a tese procedure done. That resulted in two viable embryos. With three embryos, we decided to transfer the strongest one in January 2019. I am currently almost 10 weeks pregnant.
Describe your experience with your nurse at RMA of New Jersey. (Assigned nurse: Samantha Ribaudo)
My nurse was amazing. She was so prompt with emails and calling with results, really took the time to show me how to use some of the medications and spent one morning with me when I was very emotional - she took time out of her schedule to listen to me, give me a shoulder to lean on and acted as a friend when I needed it. She always answered my questions and was very prompt at obtaining information from the doctor when I requested it.

Describe Marie Werner's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at RMA of New Jersey.
My understanding was the SET was a bit more effective, and that is all my insurance would cover, so a multiple embryo transfer was never really discussed. Also, given my age, I don't think I would have elected for a multiple embryo transfer.
