Describe the protocols Rani Fritz used in your cycles at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York and their degree of success.
We did a lot of tests to make sure we have a full picture of my reproductive situation as well as my husbands, including an HSG test, a fully updated genetic battery, a sperm test, and others I can't recall. We tried monitored planned natural intercourse, IUI cycles alone, and IUI with Femera. My situation was tricky as I have only one Fallopian tube and the doctor repeated all of our options including just being patient as my situation was going to make it just that much more challenging naturally. He helped me keep my wits and not get quite so anxious considering my circumstances. When a genetic marker did come up he really pushed us speaking with the experts in that field in order to make a fully informed decision as we moved forward. Finally, he clearly laid our our options and the pros and cons every single time so that we could make the decision that we were comfortable with - for instance we were more comfortable doing IUI without medication at first because the medication increases chances of multiples and it was fully our decision when we decided to use medication to increase the odds with my single fallopian tube situation. We discussed IVF but he was comfortable with us continuing IUI as the genetic counselors were supportive and with the understanding that my single fallopian tube might be a delay in itself. He just really laid out all the options and considered every angle with us every single month so we could come up with the best solution which made my husband and I the most comfortable.
