Describe the protocols Thomas Wincek used in your cycles at Baylor Scott & White and their degree of success.
Round 1- Femara and Clomid 50mg. I only had 2 follicles. Did a trigger shot and we had sex. Did not work. I didn’t feel many side effects except night sweats on meds.
Round 2 - Femara and Clomid 100mg. 5 follicles, trigger shot and then IUI #1. On meds, more night sweats, and a rollercoaster of emotions.
Round 3- Femara and Clomid 100mg. 4 follicles. Trigger shot and IUI #2. Lots of crying with meds and headaches. Waiting for results. 9 more days. If no go, we will be doing IVF.

They are very sweet and kind. I most commonly communicate with one named Kim. I do not know her last name, but she seems very knowledgeable.
Describe your experience with Baylor Scott & White.
The clinics strengths are they are very nice, routinely on time and will answer any questions I have. The only weakness I see... the waiting room is the same waiting area for all pregnant women and newborns. On particularly bad days, it seems like a sick joke. That is what I want so terribly bad.
