[Dr Zamah was]...very intelligent, honest and compassionate. Always open to explaining, considering my input or revisiting issues...Don't be afraid ask all the questions on your mind. Tell him to give you straight answers and he will....First cycle attempted natural IUI -- negative Second utilized u/s and trigger shot (ovidrel) -- negative Third medicated cycle (clomid and ovidrel) -- positive with m/c at 6 weeks Next 2 IUIs with clomid and ovidrel were negative. First IVF -- antagonist protocol ganirelix, menopur and follistim -- 11 eggs retrieved 5 fertilized, 2 6 cell transferred -- negative beta Second IVF -- agonist long Lupron protocol menopur and follistim with FSH co trigger -- 12 eggs retrieved, 11 fertilized but poor quality on day 3 but for one 8 cell grade 2 embryo. 3 day transfer with 2 embryos -- awaiting test results. I've been constantly told I "look good on paper" -- relatively young age, normal lab values, good egg counts noted, but seem to have an egg quality issue. Dr. Zamah was receptive to my concerns about over stimulating with menopur and adjusted dosage throughout second cycle.
