What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Shon Rowan at West Virginia University Center for Reproductive Medicine?
Take a list of questions and even if you think it's a stupid question, it's your body and you have the final say so. For example, during my day 3 scan , I was having horrible cramps and heavy flow so I declined the transvaginal ultrasound even though he said he would prefer to do it for better quality picture of my uterus. I again declined and he respected my wishes and we did a tummy ultrasound. Was fuzzy but we managed. That made me feel good that he actually listened to me and we made it work one way or the other.
