Describe the protocols Rani Fritz used in your cycles at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York and their degree of success.
After an extensive work up, we fell into the unexplained fertility category. Dr. Fritz recommended trying IUI with Femera. After 2 failed cycles and 1 miscarriage, we reconsulted and decided to begin IVF with genetic testing. For our IVF cycle, we used Gonal F 150 units and Menopur 150 units and Cetrotide. We retrieved 18 eggs, 10 embryos, which resulted in 7 genetically normal embryos. We did a frozen embryo transfer cycle and transferred one embryo. Current, we are pregnant!
