How was your experience with Rani Fritz at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York?
After two years of TTC, my husband and I decided to seek a new fertility clinic. To our discovery we found NYU Langone in Stony Brook, NY. So, we did some of our own research and we contacted them. We were able to schedule an appointment within days! This came by such a pleasant surprise as our previous clinic we had to wait weeks to be seen but not NYU Langone. My husband and I have been patients at NYU Langone for a year now. Our fertility doctor is Rani B. Fritz PhD, DO and we are incredibly thankful to have the opportunity to work with him to aid in starting our family. We immediately loved how thorough, empathetic, and available Dr. Fritz is and continues to be during this pandemic despite our treatment currently placed on hold. He demonstrates excellent communication with us and ensures we understand any risks thoroughly before committing to treatment. During our time working with Dr. Fritz, he has discover some concerns with myself that were not accessed with our previous clinic. We found out that I have elevated prolactin levels in this discovery it was followed up with a two MRI’s (with and without contrast) which, showed I have a tumor near my pituitary gland. I was always contacted by Dr. Fritz himself to review all our results, very personable. Every apportionment we had, we sat together and discussed what we were going to do next, the time frame, and Dr. Fritz made this stressful, scary, exciting experience become an easy process to follow. These are just a few examples of how thorough and effective Dr. Fritz recommendations are. Additionally, Dr. Fritz addressed all our questions I may even asked the same question on a few occasions and he would simply answer in a manner that made us feel equal. Prior to the cancelation our our treatment, Dr. Fritz contacted me to discuss changes in their policy to ensure the safety and well-being of us and his other patients. When the time came to canceling our upcoming treatment, Dr. Fritz was extremely empathetic and reassuring. At this time we are unfortunately not able to continue our treatment but we are doing our best to remain hopeful and we look forward to continuing our fertility journey with Dr. Fritz.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Rani Fritz at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York?
My advice to future potential patients is to ensure you and your partner attend the appointments together especially the first appointment. This is to ensure that during your appointments both individuals receive treatment in timely manner. For example, the first appointment my husband and I had blood work drawn. If one individual is not present this could delay future treatment and we all know how long we’ve all waited to begin effective treatment also our time valuable!! This also gives couples the perfect opportunity to ask as many questions with Dr. Fritz which can be done during all your appointments but the first is the launch of where you are and what Dr. Fritz recommends.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Rani Fritz at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York?

Describe the protocols Rani Fritz used in your cycles at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York and their degree of success.
During two fasting blood withdrawals it was discovered that I have elicited prolactin levels. As a result, Dr. Fritz recommended two MRI’s (with and without contrast). The results showed that I have a tumor near my pituitary gland and I was prescribed to take half a tablet of .5mg (twice a week) of Caberglone. Taking this has relieved some of my symptoms including head aches and tension. Another medication was also prescribed to me, 5000U/VL of Novarel was delivered by mail along with necessary items such as, alcohol swabs, bio hazard container, and needle. I have not utilized this medication as I wanted to see if the Caberglone medication would aid in conceiving naturally. It has not and I was not told that it would I just held hopes that my cause of infertility were due to my levels.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York.
The nursing staff are warm and welcoming. I appreciate when calling patients inside they ensure to practice HIPPA by calling us last name only. Any time I had a question about when to schedule my next appointment on a specific cycle day they were able to assist and ensured availability.
Describe your experience with NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York.
The strengths of this clinic is everyone effectively communicates and works together in a cohesive manner. The waiting area is warm and welcoming, the rooms and l office areas are clean and well organized. My only concern is the billing room/office is located across from the waiting area/exiting door. Although they have their own door and the waiting area has TVs on I feel the office could benefit from a sound machine in that area.

Dr. Fritz, from our first appointment, was extremely thorough, with what test we would need to do and what our next steps would be. In addition he would explain to my husband and I what the success rates where so we didn’t put additional pressure on ourselves...I felt absolutely comfortable and open to share all of my concerns about each test or procedure. Even when I was unsure of what I wanted to do Dr. Fritz did not pressure us to make a decision...
Dr. Fritz and his entire team [at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of NY] all were on the same page and made every visit more than comfortable. As a new patient I would say come with all of your questions and the entire staff would assist you...Elena was my primary nurse and like Dr. Fritz she was thorough about the plan he had in place.

In addition Laverne was the only nurse within the whole RSNY that made the multiple injections all seem like a pinch
How was your experience with Rani Fritz at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York?
Dr. Fritz always made my husband and I feel comfortable. He explained each procedure and what we needed to do next. In addition he provided a wide variety of options for us to choose. Dr. Fritz was very compassionate and made us feel like he was with us whether it was good or not so good test results. I felt absolutely comfortable and open to share all of my concerns about each test or procedure. Even when I was unsure of what I wanted to do Dr. Fritz did not pressure us to make a decision. During our first transfer we weren’t successful and Dr. Fritz went back to the drawing board and tweaked out a better plan for us. And his plan worked, we are pregnant! My last day with Dr. Fritz was bitter sweet. We are ecstatic about our pregnancy yet sad that it would be our last day coming to his office. In addition Dr. Fritz didn’t just send us off. He sent us with a detailed plan in addition to notes for my ob-gyn.

First we decided to get a few test done and Dr. Fritz suggest we do an ERA and I remember telling him my lining is good. Boy was I wrong after our first transfer failed. I decided to do the ERA which gave Dr. Fritz a more precise day to transfer the embryo. Which worked, we also got the PGA done on all embryos to make sure the embryo we chose to transfer was healthy. Dr. Fritz also suggested we do ICIS I’m not sure of the name of the test but it was a way of obtaining the nest sperm from my husband sample and mixing it in a specific machine.

How was your experience with Rani Fritz at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York?
As many women suffering with fertility issues can relate, my journey to motherhood has been complicated with some major losses and setbacks. As a result, the whole process has been particularly difficult and full of anxieties and a difficult time trusting all health professionals. Before I found Dr. Fritz, we had seen a few other doctors and left their care secondary to either cancelled cycles, negligence, and even rudeness. Meeting Dr Fritz was a breath of fresh air. His knowledge, patience, and kindness are unparalleled. He is extremely thorough and ensures every i is dotted and every t is crossed. He truly cares about our well-being and success. I felt he was always in our corner and cheering us on towards success as well as guiding us there.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Rani Fritz at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York?
Feel comfortable to be yourself to Dr. Fritz. He is kind, humble, and open. I would often apologize because I would ask 100 questions each visit and one visit he looked at me and said, " I would never be offended by your questions. In fact ask away. You have never seen me on the opposite end, I would be asking just as many questions if it were the other way around." This comment in particular stood out to me because it made me feel like we could relate and that he truly understood my fears.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Rani Fritz at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York?
After a long and difficult road to pregnancy, I have become a very OCD and rather "difficult" patient. Dr Fritz always took the time to answer our questions and concerns thoroughly and kindly. Even if he was not in the office at the time of my exam or scans, I could always count on a phone call later that day to discuss the results and questions directly with him. Dr Fritz has given us several ways to contact him to discuss questions or concerns and even replies on his days off. Dr Fritz is one of the most compassionate and knowledgeable doctors out there.
Describe the protocols Rani Fritz used in your cycles at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York and their degree of success.
My case was particularly challenging secondary to diminished ovarian reserve and other complications. Dr Fritz was confident in his choices and because of him we were able to obtain 7 PGS tested embryos with an AMH of .7. Dr Fritz was open to using HGH at my request (which yielded no additional success) but I was happy that he was open to suggestion and input. In addition to the retrievals Dr Fritz performed multiple ERA procedures until the optimal receptivity period was identified. He is precise, thorough, and research based.

Describe your experience with NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York.
The clinic as a whole is good. It is however extremely busy. I believe it is busy because it has physicians like Dr. Fritz that are compassionate and thorough. Be prepared to wait at times but rest assured when you are seen you will get the Dr.'s full attention and care. I can also speak about the really positive experiences I had when dealing with Dr Sung and Dr Saketos. I felt like everyone including the front desk staff, the phelbotomists, Chris the lead US tech (she deserves absolute recognition for her skill, kindess, and expertise), nurses, and egg retrieval teams were fabulous. I was able to form so many nice relationships with this staff that really helped on the "difficult days". Kindness goes a long way.

He [Dr. Fritz] made sure to listen and explain everything every step of the way...he laid out all of our options, the pros and cons, and what steps they entailed.

[Dr. Rani Fritz] spoke to me in a way that made me feel that I was an active participant in my care and treatment course...His demeanor when he walks into a room automatically calms the air and when he counsels you, you automatically feel at ease with the journey that you're about to embark on...clearly explained to me the risks, benefits, and alternatives in a manner that was easy for me to comprehend.
They [Nurses at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York] are THE team that I would want at every doctor's office. Each person had a specific job, but everyone worked together and helped each other when needed. They made their patients feel like a part of a family. I didn't feel like just another patient in the office. Every part of the team knew the name of every patient (without looking). I don't know how they do it-- but they did!
How was your experience with Rani Fritz at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York?
Dr. Fritz was a physician that understood the pains and frustrations of why patients need to see an infertility specialist. His demeanor when he walks into a room automatically calms the air and when he counsels you, you automatically feel at ease with the journey that you're about to embark on. He spoke to me in a way that made me feel that I was an active participant in my care and treatment course. He clearly explained to me the risks, benefits, and alternatives in a manner that was easy for me to comprehend.

I would write down all my questions and not feel afraid to ask them. Don't think that you're wasting all of Dr. Fritz's time with all the frivolous questions-- he is there to answer all of them. He certainly answered ALL of mine. And if there's an answer that I didn't understand, I'd ask my question again.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Rani Fritz at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York?
Dr. Fritz tailored his explanation to the patient and didn't use jargon that was unfamiliar. He took the time to re-explain things that I didn't understand. He understood the frustrations that I was having and he validated them while giving me viable solutions and treatment plans for my husband and I. His treatment plans were understandable and clear.
Describe the protocols Rani Fritz used in your cycles at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York and their degree of success.
I did IUI for several cycles and we spoke and prepared for possible IVF. However, I never started IVF as we were able to achieve our desired result.
Describe your experience with your nurse at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York. (Assigned nurse: Elena Langoria)
Elena, Lishon, and Laverne were phenomenal. They are THE team that I would want at every doctor's office.

We initially had problems with our insurance and paperwork. And the thought of the costs associated with fertility treatments were daunting.

Furthermore, while we were considering IVF, she was able to put me in contact with the financial counselor prior to starting IVF to ensure that we wouldn't have any surprise bills in the future. She really went above and beyond her job title to help put me at ease with such a stressful aspect of infertility care.

Dr. Fritz is kind, compassionate, and took the time to get to know our specific situation before deciding on a treatment plan...He listened to our concerns, made a plan specific to our needs, and was ready to alter that plan as needed throughout our treatment...suggested an ERA to ensure my transfers were done at the proper timing. He also performed a hysteroscopy to remove polyps. I had a history of difficult embryo transfers, so Dr. Fritz did a trial transfer and also decided to have an anesthesiologist on standby, which was not needed during my transfer because he had completed the trial transfer and knew exactly how to avoid previous issues I had had with my other doctors.
They [NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of NY] can sometimes be a bit disorganized (i.e. two different staff members giving different answers to a question) but most issues were minor and this was the most efficiently run clinic of the 3 we had been to...On occasion we got different answers from staff, but each instance was a minor detail. We never had any major issues or anything that interfered with or delayed treatment in any way.
How was your experience with Rani Fritz at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York?
Dr. Fritz is kind, compassionate, and took the time to get to know our specific situation before deciding on a treatment plan. We had seen 2 doctors previously who seemed to just be checking items off a list, without regard to whether it was working for us, and Dr. Fritz was the exact opposite. He listened to our concerns, made a plan specific to our needs, and was ready to alter that plan as needed throughout our treatment.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Rani Fritz at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York?
Express any concerns with him, and he will surely assuage any fears you might have.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Rani Fritz at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York?
Dr. Fritz has the best bedside manner of all doctors we've met in our 4 year fertility journey. He took the time to really understand our specific situation, and built a treatment plan around our needs, never relying on a cookie cutter plan.

How competent was NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York at LGBTQ care?

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 workup, were diagnosed with unexplained infertility. We underwent two cycles of clomid/IUI, which did not work and then we decided to proceed with IVF. We decided to do genetic testing on the embryos and transferred one healthy embryo in an artificial frozen embryo transfer cycle. The doses we used in our IVF cycle were 150 units of Gonal F and 150 units of Menopur with Cetrotide added in the middle of the cycle. The oocyte retrieval went smoothly and the recovery was quick. We retrieved 15 eggs and eventually generated 5 embryos with 4 of them being genetically normal. Our frozen embryo cycle was with oral estrogen 2 times per day and intramuscular injections of progesterone.

Dr Fritz’s extensive knowledge in the field, skill, and work ethic make him a wonderful Reproductive Endocrinologist, but his bedside manner separates him from the rest! I never felt rushed during visits and I was fully heard. He took my suggestions I gathered from research and online support groups into consideration when planning my cycles. He was open to a balanced fertility approach, combining western and eastern medicine for the best possible results. He responded to my emails in a timely fashion and often picked up the phone to call me in lieu of emailing me back. He was attentive, thorough, informative, and professional.
The [NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of NY] clinic is managed well and efficient. Clean facility that adhered to Covid protocols. Early morning hours very convenient for bloodwork and didn’t interfere with my work schedule. I barely ever waited more than 10 min in the waiting room before my scheduled appointments...I had to be vigilant when it came to Patient Portal messages as I found a discrepancy once or twice in terms of specific directives relayed to me through the portal system. Had to ask several times about bloodwork results that was ordered but not released to me

I don't remember the full strategy and doses but some of the drugs used in my cycle were GONAL-F, Menopur, Progesterone in oil, Estrogen patches, Cetrotide, and HCG.

A positive pregnancy was the result of using this rationale.

From the moment we met Dr. Fritz, we felt very comfortable. He explained all our treatments in detail. I never felt rushed or pushed. He always answered his emailed and when needed, would check in by phone to discuss the progress of our treatment. I can recall there was one time when he was on vacation, but we had what we thought was an important question. He called us back despite being on vacation and helped put us at ease. We are very grateful to have found Dr. Fritz to help us grow our family.
After 2 failed cycles and 1 miscarriage, we reconsulted and decided to begin IVF with genetic testing [at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York]...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!...The nursing staff were excellent and efficient. They got to know me well after being a patient for many months. Many times they were a breath of fresh air during this stressful time.

I had two successful egg freezing/retrieval procedures with Dr. Fritz...As an African-American female, I had questions about the success of the procedure and medications used for my specific background and he answered every one with data and clear communication. Sometimes I had appointments when Dr. Fritz was not in a particular office, but he always followed up with me on my tests, scans and next steps.
Dr. Fritz and the office staff [at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York] were very professional, personable and timely with their responses. Directions to take my daily injections were easy and clear to follow. Sometimes it was hard to get in contact with a nurse after my procedure and I had to leave multiple messages with the messaging service. I would have liked to have a direct contact after my retrieval.

Dr. Fritz's strengths are that he is extremely up-to-date in the most evidence-based forms of fertility care but also uses his clinical expertise, observations, and patient's preferences to adjust treatment as needed. He is very patient, compassionate and an excellent educator/communicator. He responds promptly to email and phone calls (even after hours and when he is not on call) and takes his time with the patients during the appointments. He is optimistic but sets reasonable expectations.
NYU of Brooklyn [Langone Reproductive Specialists] is very organized and the doctors and staff are wonderful. It was easy to get an appointment and I almost never waited for more than 10 minutes. They were good at returning calls and emails, even after office hours. One thing to be aware of is that the office is only open five days a week. So, if you need to be seen on a weekend, you must be prepared to travel to Long Island...

Do not be afraid to ask him questions when things seem unclear because he will always take his time to patiently explain everything in a very digestible manner, as long as you ask him to.

You can trust Dr. Fritz without hesitation for your treatment.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Rani Fritz at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York?
I am in my 40s with extremely low ovarian reserve, and have never been pregnant in my life. After 4 egg retrievals prior, Dr. Fritz became our doctor, though our prospects were low we were determined to do all we could to have a child. Dr. Fritz was always kind, sincere encouraging, and most importantly sincerely tried to find the most effective protocol for our situation.
Describe the protocols Rani Fritz used in your cycles at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York and their degree of success.
Before starting treatment with Dr. Fritz he recommended I start taking DHEA and COq10 to improve ovarian reserve. Prior to the cycle start I took estrogen, then during cycle I took Gonol F, and Menopure, over the cycles some amounts of these medication were increased. During my first 4 cycles with another Dr. I had only one follicle, and one egg retrieved each round, the last five cycles with Dr. Fritz, 2-4 eggs were retrieved each round.

Dr Fritz was very personable and I felt comfortable in my visits with him. He explained and communicated very well and would show me what I was looking at on ultrasounds so that I could understand. He knew what was best to help me achieve my result and here I am pregnant on my first IVF!...he actually got to know me and would remember me...I was very nervous about only transferring 1 egg since I only had so many attempts with insurance I wanted to be safe and transfer 2. But Dr Fritz wanted me to stick with one, he felt it would be too risky for me to try 2 at once and I listened to him and got pregnant with just the 1 egg!
They [nurses at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York] were always attentive and helped with my progesterone shots when needed...The clinic was willing to work with me since I had an hour commute they would accommodate and give me later appointments to work with my schedule as well as helped me with FMLA forms so that way I wouldn't be penalized at work for missing chunks of time...

How was your experience with Rani Fritz at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York?
Dr. Fritz is clearly a highly skilled doctor. There is no doubt that his expertise enabled me to freeze a really high number of eggs from one ovary without any serious side effects. He pays attention to and is clear about risks and closely monitored me to ensure there were no adverse side effects. On the basis of my results I would recommend him as a doctor. That said, I would tell anyone I recommend him to that he does not have good bedside manner and is not good at managing patients. He comes across as condescending, belittling and trying to be compassionate—in short, he falls short. But as a cancer patient with a short timeline, he achieved fantastic results and so I would recommend him.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Rani Fritz at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York?
Be prepared going in that he does not have good bedside manner, but don’t let that deter you from using him as a doctor as he is highly skilled.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Rani Fritz at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York?
I don’t know if it’s a lack of experience in managing patients with cancer or it’s the in and out nature of fertility clinics in general, but I felt very rushed and felt like I was talked down to when I had questions. Dr. Fritz and Kevin can be very condescending. I came out of appointments feeling belittled rather than empowered. I felt like the approach was very much we will tell you what to do, you listen, end of story. I also had to wait a long time for certain appointments (upwards of an hour), which I understand happens, but I think care should be given to a patient with a cancer diagnosis who in addition to work, waking up early for fertility appointments, and being on hormone injections, is also managing oncology appointments and the emotional toll of a cancer diagnosis.

Doctor [Dr. Rani Fritz] always showed warm bedside manner, always called back personally when we requested to speak with him directly...He showed compassion during hard news but also always showed continued hope that treatment would work, which was important to us...Started synthroid for borderline high TSH start of treatment. Menopur and follistim pen at first, then add cetrotide and then pregnyl trigger shot for egg retrieval. Husband referred to urologist for MFI. Husband started clomid. Did ERA cycle prior to transfer with estrogen patches and progesterone in oil. Replicated patches and PIO for frozen transfer and it worked!
[Nurses at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York] Kind and caring. Compassionate when it was needed most. Had an SCH early on after transfer and could not be more grateful for the compassion the nurses showed when I was scared...Long wait times for appointments, appointment times not always available when needed. However, I was doing IVF during a pandemic so not sure if this is the norm. Excellent online portal that provides all the information you need and/or forgot to write down when speaking to nurses. Their system is designed to help you not forget the many moving parts of fertility treatment.
How was your experience with Rani Fritz at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York?

Doctor Fritz always took the time to answer all questions, explain the process ,and listen to our concerns. He would present us with all of our options an respect and support the choices we made. He was always available to us even giving his cell phone number to contact and even answered when on vacation. When we had successes he genuinely felt excited and happy for us. He became more than just a doctor but a friend too.
The Mineola [NYU Langone] office was very big so sometimes you would have to wait a long time before being seen. I would go before work and at times it made me late to work because of how long I had to wait. The other offices were smaller and more intimate so I was in and out quicker...Most of the staff was compassionate and cared and would ask questions. Some of the nurses were not...It was more affordable than I expected. Insurance covered a good amount.
How was your experience with Rani Fritz at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York?
There are many things that make Dr Fritz an exceptional doctor. He would always take the time to make sure we understood exactly what we were going through and explain things in a way we understood. We never felt like we we rushed in our visits, he wanted to make sure we felt comfortable with our decisions and understood.

He always made us feel that we would get to our dream of having a child and not to give up. He was always available even when on vacation to support us and answer questions.

Describe the protocols Rani Fritz used in your cycles at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York and their degree of success.
We had been to two fertility doctors before Dr Fritz and they had both misdiagnosed me. I had been going through treatments for over a year and also had one surgery to remove a fibroid and still had no luck getting pregnant so the next step was IUI or IVF and the doctor we were seeing didn’t do those procedures. From the first visit and my first sonogram Dr Fritz correctly diagnosed my reason for infertility. We went through one round of IUI which he said probably wouldn’t help the problem and it didn’t work. He respected that we didn’t want to waste time with it and wanted to go straight to IVF. Before beginning IVF he wanted to do surgery to remove as much of endometriosis as possible and endometrioma, which seemed to help because I got pregnant shortly after. We had one egg retrieval with him which was very successful and gave us 9 healthy embryos. We had one round of IVF which resulted in a pregnancy but I had a miscarriage. The second round we began but didn’t get to the transfer because of Covid it was cancelled. Finally the third round was successful and we now have a baby girl!

Describe your experience with NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York.
The Mineola office was very big so sometimes you would have to wait a long time before being seen. I would go before work and at times it made me late to work because of how long I had to wait. The other offices were smaller and more intimate so I was in and out quicker.

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.
