We started with ultrasounds to confirm if i was ovulating on my own or not. This is how we found my PCOS as I have an abnormal amount of cysts on my ovaries. From there we did an hsg exam which confirmed my tubes are clear so we stated 6 months of Femara with timed intercourse. After my 6 months had passed with no pregnancy we are now into the next step of Femara with trigger shot and IUI

Just as wonderful as Dr. Redding

He [Dr. Redding] always answered my questions. He really cared and explained everything. His staff was awesome and very helpful. He explained all e risks as well. He always explained and did a great job with my surgery. He has a calm relaxed, but straight forward approach. I think you have to understand being a military facility he is limited in options but felt he did a good job with what tools he has to work with... One doctor that was covering recommend 6 iuis, but Dr Redding said 4 was better.

Everyone in the office was kind and caring. Even though I saw allot of people everyone made a effort to hear my questions and concerns as well as answer them to the best of thier knowledge. I do wish there were more care options like injectables but those are not offered due to it being a military hospital.

Letrazole 2.5 mg day 3 through 7 one iui day after trigger. I did for if these cycles. I produced follicles but never got pregnant

Not good on answering questions after hours but you can go to the hospital if needed. Staff is knowledgeable and kind. Very helpful and encouraging. Wish they did ivf. They can do iui but not with injectables. I would say major con is the limited options or adjustments they can offer, but major pro is the service is covered all by Tricare except semen wash, which was $240.00
