I had both my tubes removed [by Dr. Samantha Schon]. I can get pregnant just fine, but both tubes were blocked after my first pregnancy...She took the time to really make sure we understood the process, and even went into great detail given our specific circumstances. We didn't feel rushed and were encouraged to ask all the questions we had...She can be pretty blunt, but in a way that still makes you feel human. She has undergone IVF herself, so she knows the process more completely probably more than other doctors. She is very responsive to messages in the portal. She was even able to squeeze us in for a consult on a Friday afternoon at 4:45, when they close at 5, and we didnt even leave her office until almost 6, and she didn't make use feel rushed.
They only transfer 1 embryo at a time at UM. We were hoping to do 2, but the risks are too high with transferring two, and it doesn't increase your chances by very much...once you've had the consult, it seems to be fairly easy to get an appointment in. The entire clinic shutdown for 1 day on October 4, so they didnt do any cycles that started after 9/21...which was incredibly annoying because mine started the day after. But no one was available to do any labs, retrievals, or transfers that day. They offer a 60% discount for IVF if insurance doesn't cover the costs of IVF.

Describe the protocols Samantha Schon used in your cycles at University of Michigan Center for Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
Antagonist protocol. I had both my tubes removed. I can get pregnant just fine, but both tubes were blocked after my first pregnancy. Cold-start cycle. Gonal-f, Menopur, Ganirellix, progesterone suppositories, estrace.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
They are incredibly nice, and responsive. They make sure to get you the correct information and want to make sure all your questions are answered. I really love the nursing staff.
Describe your experience with University of Michigan Center for Reproductive Medicine.
The initial wait time to get in can be quite long. We had to wait 3 months for a consult, which was aggravating. But once you've had the consult, it seems to be fairly easy to get an appointment in. The entire clinic shutdown for 1 day on October 4, so they didnt do any cycles that started after 9/21...which was incredibly annoying because mine started the day after. But no one was available to do any labs, retrievals, or transfers that day. They offer a 60% discount for IVF if insurance doesn't cover the costs of IVF.

Describe Samantha Schon's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at University of Michigan Center for Reproductive Medicine.
