Describe the protocols Michael Sobel used in your cycles at Abington Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
I did medicated cycles with ultrasounds to track the process. They were very structured with how the process went, and gave a complete outline of the process. It was easy to follow.
Medications, ultrasounds, and blood work.
He also did a great workup of exploratory diagnosis of our fertility.
When he found that I had a septum in my uterus, he moved forward with removing the septum before any pregnancy.
I also had the HSG done to check my tubes.
