Success w/ Doc Too early to know
Dr Lydic is direct and professional but not entirely impersonal. He demonstrated solid understanding of our needs as a queer couple and the options that are available to us. I felt like he was happy to have me as a patient and that he was easy to communicate with in general...suggested proceeding with unmedicated IUI cycles and if after three we weren’t successful...his responses were individualized
this clinic [Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine] is very accessible. I was denied treatment because of my bmi at previous providers, but KU Med actually bothered to get to know me beyond the numbers on my chart and made me feel like I deserved to get pregnant as much as anyone else. The wait time for a consult was a little lengthy...interactions have been through the patient portal, but they are quick to respond and helpful with questions

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Michael Lydic at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine?
It helps to have done a little of your own homework beforehand. The more you know about what route you’re wanting to take or what questions you want to ask, the more you’ll get out of the appointment.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Michael Lydic at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine?
Dr. Lydic did not make assumptions about my health or lifestyle based on the numbers in my chart. I felt like his responses were individualized. He gave my wife and I plenty of time to ask questions in our consultation and it didn’t feel like we were being hurried through the appointment.
Describe the protocols Michael Lydic used in your cycles at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
Since as far as we know, we are only in need of donor sperm and we want to avoid multiple pregnancies, Dr. Lydic suggested proceeding with unmedicated IUI cycles and if after three we weren’t successful, then we would try medication. I do have a congenital blood clotting condition that is a concern for me and he recommended starting a regimen of baby aspirin. We also discussed my current prescriptions and he gave me insight on which ones to continue taking during treatment.

Dr Lydic was actually great as far as treatment and getting us a a successful IUI. We did rarely see him in person only my first appointment and I had a appointment scheduled for IVF...He did communicate after every IUI on the portal . I do wish the communication with him was more...My partner loved him because he said he gave him hope and still let us try the IUI with the low sperm count . He just increased my meds to make sure I produced a lot eggs.
I had different [Kansas U Center] nurses each time I did have to complain once for being in the waiting room to long for an IUI and feeling being of rushed on my second IUI however the issue was corrected IMMEDIATELY...A lot of times we did have to ask about the next steps and what was going on being that we’ve never done it before...Weaknesses is the communication is all thur a portal you barely talk to somebody direct unless you go in for your ultrasounds and IUI/IVF. They don’t hound you on payments .

Dr Lydic was actually great as far as treatment and getting us a a successful IUI. We did rarely see him in person only my first appointment and I had a appointment scheduled for IVF ( if my last IUI cycle was a bust) however I never needed the IVF. He did communicate after every IUI on the portal . I do wish the communication with him was more. He has a demeanor where you can’t read him lol but he was absolutely great with giving us options and not just telling us no way like a previous doctor did at this same clinic. My partner loved him because he said he gave him hope and still let us try the IUI with the low sperm count . He just increased my meds to make sure I produced a lot eggs.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Michael Lydic at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine?
Just be patient . It gets tiresome and upsetting when you want something so bad and it’s not happening. Now I look back those 4 cycles I did was only 4 months but it felt like a year. I didn’t feel like a paying patient with Dr.lydic but I felt like a person who just wanted children he definitely understand his job and does it really well to get the best outcome
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Michael Lydic at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine?
Well the nurses that we saw majority of the time were always so upbeat and positive. It gave me great hope it would happen regardless of the past negative cycles.
Describe the protocols Michael Lydic used in your cycles at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
So each cycle Once ovulation days were near I had a ultrasound to determine the quality of the eggs then I was put on a 4 day Letrozole pill (which he increased dosage amount each cycle ) to produce more eggs . Then another ultrasound for a mature eggs a couple of days then an ovidrel shot which produced ovulation given at home the night of the ultrasound within 48 hours of the shot being taken we had to go in for the IUI
Describe your experience with your nurse at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine. (Assigned nurse: Sara Hagen)

Describe your experience with Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine.
You don’t get to see the doctor a lot you deal with more of the nurses. Some nurses are there for a check and some are pretty good at they do and can tell they love what they do . A lot of times we did have to ask about the next steps and what was going on being that we’ve never done it before . But after the first cycle you pretty much get it . Weaknesses is the communication is all thur a portal you barely talk to somebody direct unless you go in for your ultrasounds and IUI/IVF. They don’t hound you on payments .
Describe the costs associated with your care under Michael Lydic at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine.
About 1600 out of pocket after insurance which my insurance covered fertility once I hit my deductible so most of the cost was hitting my deductible

We loved that he [Dr. Lydic] would draw out diagrams to describe certain processes with us. We did have a couple set backs during our IVF process and needed surgery to remove some scar tissue and he explained the importance of each step. We really only saw him in person twice during our care, a couple times on zoom, but he called us quite a bit during everything our whole process so we never felt like it was hard to communicate with him...
The office [Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine] ran very efficiently for monitoring appointments. Occasionally we have to wait 10-15 minutes to be seen but no longer...The only issue we had was once during an iui the nurse didn’t tell financial office to send in a prior authorization when they made the appointment. Luckily, finance office caught it and took care of it so it was still covered by insurance. The only other issue we ever had was couple times it took them a bit to respond to emails but that rarely was an issue for us...
How was your experience with Michael Lydic at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine?
Dr. Lydic never once tested us like just a number at the clinic to collect money from. He took his time talking to us for 45+ minutes for each consultation and never rushed us. He answered every question we had and put our mi day at ease. We loved that he would draw out diagrams to describe certain processes with us.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Michael Lydic at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine?
Be patient with the process because it can be slow. Ask him any questions you have because he doesn’t kind answering your questions or explaining things more to you. Some people complained that the doctors are hard to get ahold of but anytime we wanted to talk to him, we just emailed the nurse in the portal asking to talk to him and he always called us in a timely manner. Also, don’t forget to advocate for yourself. Dr Lydic was very caring but we really pushed for what we thought was right for us.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Michael Lydic at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine?
Dr. Lydic is a very personable doctor. He took the time to answer any questions I had and go over every scenario with my husband and I. He called frequently during our iui’s and IVF process to check in on us and ask if we had any more questions come up.
Describe the protocols Michael Lydic used in your cycles at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
We started with 4 iui’s. Two were with letrozol and two with clomid (all of which included trigger shots). For IVF, we did an egg retrieval, surgery to remove scar tissue from uterus while embryos were being genetically tested and then 2 frozen embryos transfers because our first failed.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine.
We loved the nurses. Every time we came in they always checked on us to see how we had been, if we were feeling ok and if we had any questions. They were always invested in our process and excited for us and with us.
Describe your experience with Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine.
They were all very nice and compassionate. We really liked how optimistic and hopeful they are. This process can be so draining that’s it’s nice to have them always so positive and reassuring every time we came in. The only issue we had was once during an iui the nurse didn’t tell financial office to send in a prior authorization when they made the appointment. Luckily, finance office caught it and took care of it so it was still covered by insurance. The only other issue we ever had was couple times it took them a bit to respond to emails but that rarely was an issue for us.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine.
The office ran very efficiently for monitoring appointments. Occasionally we have to wait 10-15 minutes to be seen but no longer. For our schedule, we generally chose to come in first thing in the morning or as early as we could and it was no issue. Only once they had an issue finding a lab form in order for me to do my labs for monitoring but it was quickly figured out.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Michael Lydic at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine.
We were lucky when it came to our iui’s that we had some insurance coverage. We paid a little for each medication we took (letrozol and clomid) and about $100/trigger shot. Our ultrasounds and labs were all covered and each iui cost us about $250 total for the procedure and medicine. IVF was all out of pocket for us. Since we chose to do genetic testing, the up front cost was $13,750 at our first appointment, medications were another approximate $3000 (we did apply for compassionate care program through the pharmacy for a small discount and that number was AFTER the discount) and another $3000 for the second transfer and medications.
Describe Michael Lydic's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine.
He really pushed for us to only transfer one embryo at al time initially based on the risks and complications pregnancy and birth can be for multiple. We talked to him though that our goal was to only do 2 frozen transfers and we really wanted to transfer one and then if necessary for a 2nd FET then go transfer 2. He agreed and after egg retrieval we only had 3 genetically normal embryos and it worked out that we transferred one for a failed cycle and then transferred our last 2 ams are currently pregnant with one baby.

In the 3.5 months that I was a patient of Dr Lydic, I only saw him once (and it wasn’t in person but via telehealth). All communication was with the RN or once, the NP...Due to COVID, our initial meeting with the physician was via TH. He had a PowerPoint that seemed generic but provided a baseline understanding of options. I was instructed to come to the clinic for an initial ultrasound and lab work...I received a notification via the app (the primary way the clinic communicates) that an additional lab was ordered...I messaged the nurses (messaging the doctor isn’t an option on the app), and asked for insight. The message I received back from the RN was the plan for another IUI cycle. There was no regard for my request, simply a med plan for a second IUI cycle.

How was your experience with Michael Lydic at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine?
In the 3.5 months that I was a patient of Dr Lydic, I only saw him once (and it wasn’t in person but via telehealth). All communication was with the RN or once, the NP. Thus, it is difficult to rate him however, I was very disappointed with the practice as a whole.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Michael Lydic at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine?
Unfortunately, I would not recommend Dr Lydic because the practice is so poorly managed and communication is terrible.

I only had one encounter with Dr Lydic and it was via telehealth. Given, it is hard to review him. My main concerns were secondary to the practice itself.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine.
Difficult to reach as had to communicate via an app. Often not able to answer my questions.
Describe your experience with Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine.
In the face of “unexplained infertility”, I looked at multiple practices in the KC for guidance. Ultimately, KU was able to get us in the quickest. My husband works for KU so we both felt confident in the institution. Due to COVID, our initial meeting with the physician was via TH. He had a PowerPoint that seemed generic but provided a baseline understanding of options. I was instructed to come to the clinic for an initial ultrasound and lab work. I completed the US and was waiting to get my labs drawn when I received a notification via the app (the primary way the clinic communicates) that an additional lab was ordered. I asked the sonographer and the lab personal as to why but neither were able to provide insight. I was instructed to message the nurses via the app…I WAS SITTING IN THE CLINIC! I should have known then that communication was going to be a challenge but again, my husband works for KU and we think highly of the institution. After a failed medicated cycle and IUI, I messaged the nurses (messaging the doctor isn’t an option on the app), and asked for insight. The message I received back from the RN was the plan for another IUI cycle. There was no regard for my request, simply a med plan for a second IUI cycle. In reviewing the cycle, there was a med I had never heard of added. Because in the initial meeting (which for the record, was the only time we communicated with the physician in the 3.5 months we utilized the practice), the doctor had never mentioned this med, I sent a message and asked if I could get a call to get clarity. I wanted to understand what the med does, why it was ordered, and any side effects I should be aware of. I am a RN so I didn’t think it was too much to ask to receive basic education regarding a medication. When the RN called, she sounded annoyed. I understand it was a Sunday. I too was on-call for my nursing job so, I understand that it can interfere with one’s personal life but, that comes with being on-call. The nurse did explain what the medication does but when I asked why it was prescribed (did you notice something last cycle that indicated this med should be added or, is it is just the next medication in the toolbox), the nurse responded “it’s just what the doctor ordered.” I understand the essence of unexplained infertility, but I think it is a patients prerogative to understand why, even if the answer is “this is just the next shot in the dark.” I completed the cycle as prescribed and when I went in for IUI, this time a NP did the procedure (the first time, it was done but an RN). While there, I asked the NP if we could ask some questions. She was open to answering my questions and I thanked her saying “the communication hasn’t been the best and I just want to make sure that I understand my plan of care.” She became defensive and told me I should have messaged the nurses if I had questions. I told I did and she immediately said, “it is the volume of patients that we have here….years ago, I did everything from the counseling to the ultrasounds to the labs and now there is a sonographer, a lab tech, the nurses and things fall through the cracks because there are so many patients.” She proceed to tell me that she has “been doing this for a long time” and I, “ just need to trust the process because she is reviewing my records all the time.” Mind you, this encounter was the first time I had ever met, let alone communicated with, the NP. My husband equated the clinic to making us feel like cows being cycled through. That was my last straw. KU may be able to get to you in sooner than other practices in KC but, if you are looking for a fertility practice where you are valued as a patient, where discussion regarding your specific plan of care is ongoing, and where your questions are welcomed, I would encourage you to consider alternative options.

Describe the protocols Michael Lydic used in your cycles at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
We started with timed intercourse. I would begin my period and take letrozol for five days then the tenth day would get an Ultrasound. If my eggs were ready, I injected a hormone shot to stimulate ovulation where my husband and I would have timed intercourse for 3 days in a row. I would take a pregnancy test two weeks later and email if I was or was not pregnant. Twice, my eggs did not look ready. I opted to not go in for a second ultrasound and they gave me a later start date for timed intercourse.

Dr. Lydic always made sure we knew that he was thinking of us, and taking care of us. There were multiple times that he would call me personally, after hours, to check in. ... Dr Lydic was compassionate and caring. There were multiple times that a cycle would get cancelled for various reasons and he made sure to call me personally to see how I was dealing with the news. We lost identical twins at almost 20 weeks and he called a few weeks out to discuss what happened and ask how we were holding up. He communicated procedures thoroughly and answered questions with ease.
The nursing staff at KU med is incredible. They were all so kind and were supportive through every process. They communicated quickly and thoroughly, and always showed compassion. There is a huge spot in my heart for a certain ultrasound tech there, I believe her name was Allie. She showed an emotional attachment to our journey and laughed and cried with us. There is literally nothing negative I could say about the nursing team.

We underwent three IUIs, which all resulted in negative pregnancy tests. When we first consulted with Dr Lydic I had expressed that I only wanted to do three IUIs before moving on to IVF and he agreed that that was a good plan. I started a stimulation cycle with global-f but was not responding to medications so we decided to cancel and try again at a higher dosage. This was successful and we had a retrieval resulting in 11 embryos, which we did not PGS test. We started a frozen transfer cycle with estrogen patches but it was canceled due to a small cyst on the lining of my uterus. The second round be switched to estradiol tablets and PIO, which was successful. We transferred one frozen day 5 embryo, which successfully implanted and split into identical twins. We found out at 12 weeks that one of the twins had a bladder outlet obstruction and at 19+4 we found that neither boy had heartbeats. I was induced and they were born the next morning.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine.
The nursing staff at KU med is incredible. They were all so kind and were supportive through every process. They communicated quickly and thoroughly, and always showed compassion. There is a huge spot in my heart for a certain ultrasound tech there, I believe her name was Allie. She showed an emotional attachment to our journey and laughed and cried with us. There is literally nothing negative I could say about the nursing team.
Describe your experience with Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine.
The clinic is well run. Every member of the staff I have met was full of love and empathy, and were there to hold your hand through really tough waters. Something I did not enjoy was that the main form of communication is through an online portal, so urgent matters can sometimes be lost.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Michael Lydic at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine.
For our IUIs and retrieval we had insurance coverage, and everything was a breeze. For our transfer we paid out of pocket and it was a solid 2500, which covered monitoring ultrasounds, transfer, bloodwork and pregnancy ultrasound
Describe Michael Lydic's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine.
Dr Lydic mentioned they preferred to only transfer one embryo unless there were underlying factors like age or recurrent loss.

Describe the protocols Michael Lydic used in your cycles at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
We went straight into IVF I was diagnosed with PCOS and my husband had low sperm count, we had already tried 6 rounds of clomid with my OB at home, with no success so Dr Lydic felt that IVF would be our best option and would save us financially in the long run. We did one round of IVF and our retrieval resulted in 32 eggs with 30 of them fully mature. Out of our 30 eggs we ended with 10 healthy frozen embryos. We just did our first transfer that unfortunately ended in a miscarriage at 6 weeks. But we plan to try another transfer soon.

When I first saw Dr. Lydic, I was referred because of irregular periods and pain. He explained what possible causes were and treatments for each possible cause. I ended up having a 7.5 cm cyst on one ovary and 3.5 cyst on the other. Before we began fertility treatments, he wanted to watch those to make sure they didn’t turn into anything. I ended up with a positive pregnancy test and at my first ultrasound found out it was ectopic. I went in for immediate surgery after speaking with Dr. Lydic, who was very compassionate and informational, and since then have began fertility treatment with Letrozole.
The nurses [at KS University Center for Advanced Reproductive Med] are all very kind and understanding, but they are also very well informed when it comes to questions I have or concerns that have to do with me. They know how to answer questions specific to me.... All clean, friendly staff, easy in and out. They seem just as compassionate as the nurses and Dr. Lydic. I have seen them help out with other patients young children and it is nice to have a staff there who cares.
How was your experience with Michael Lydic at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine?
Dr. Lydic always explains everything that’s going on in my body with the utmost care and intelligence. He provided me with expectations, risks, and hopes as a result of the treatments or process. I loved that he would draw pictures to explain everything, giving me a better visual understanding of what was going on in my body.

Dr. Lydic was so kind and respectful of my faith and my concerns. He always put my comfort first, and reassured my understanding every step of the way. He even drew me a diagram to give me a visual understanding of the process....Dr. Lydic did bloodwork and discovered I needed a thyroid medication. I had been to several other doctors and that was never discovered. He then gave options for IUI with Femera and ovidrel trigger shot, or IVF. We decided on IUI, which we proceeded with 3 times, but with no success.

We did 4 IUIs with Letrozole [with Dr. Michael Lydic] which we unfortunately unsuccessful. My husband has low volume, so the thought was that IUI would help get the sperm where it was needed. After that we decided to go with IVF. We medicated with Gonal-F, Menopur, and Cetrotide. We were able to retrieve 22 eggs, and using ICSI we had 7 embryos make it to day 5. We did a fresh transfer with 1 embryo that was unsuccessful. After that we did a FET with vaginal estrace and progesterone in oil. We transferred 1 embryo that was again unsuccessful. We are now doing an ERA test, and hopefully a second FET.
The clinic [KU Center for Advanced Reproductive Med] was very well organized. In general, you did not have very long waits. Sometimes earlier in the week, you might have a longer wait, due to everyone playing catch up from the weekend. The receptionist and front desk staff were friendly and genuinely caring about what is going on with the patients... The nurses were all very friendly. You could tell that they really wanted the treatments to succeed. They explained things well, and were good about communicating test results, etc.

Dr Lydic is very warm and caring. He spent 45+ minutes with me during our consultations to explain in great depth the process and go over my test results. He also likes to draw out pictures to help explain things which is very helpful. On multiple occasions, Dr. Lydic called me to discuss what was going on in my treatment, and even called after I moved out of state to check on me. He is very knowledgeable and willing to listen to your questions and concerns.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Michael Lydic at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine?
When choosing him you are essentially choosing a clinic where you rarely talk to a person. Pretty much all communication is done through a website app. and you rarely get a phone call about labs/tests. Although he is a great doctor, the circumstances/clinic around him are the drawback.

The first time I met with Dr. Lydic, he sat with us for as long as we needed to discuss moving forward with IVF. I showed up with a typed up list of questions and he took the time to answer every single one. He called me personally on several occasions during the IVF process and had excellent bedside manner.
Describe the protocols Michael Lydic used in your cycles at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
Dr. Lydic had me on Menopur, Gonal F (which I had been on before), and Ganirelix when I had a lead follicle. We planned on a fresh day 5 transfer, but had to switch to a frozen transfer since my progesterone levels were higher than they should’ve been for a transfer. We had a successful FET of a day 5 blastocyst that resulted in our oldest child. And we were back a year and a half later transferring embryo #2, which resulted in our youngest child.

I was concerned that an eSET might not be as successful as transferring 2 embryos, despite knowing that the difference in success rate is small. Dr. Lydic explained that I had a good prognosis for pregnancy and that while he would respect my wishes, he recommended an eSET, especially given my small frame. Im so glad he did! And that we listened.

Dr. Lydic really takes the time to listen to what my goals and expectations are. If he has other thoughts he voices them. He allows me to control the path of my journey.

Prompt return phone calls. When I request an appoint he is always willing and able to listen, even if it's just a bitch session and complaining how expensive this all is. Weakness: telling me what plans B and C are of my plan A doesn't work out.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Michael Lydic at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine?
Don't go in having one plan. Listen to the doctor and come to a course of action you all are comfortable with.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Michael Lydic at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine?
Dr. Lydic really takes the time to listen to what my goals and expectations are. If he has other thoughts he voices them. He allows me to control the path of my journey. I'm ready for IVF and he is very supportive of my decision and desire to have a child.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine.
They were my shoulder to cry on when my IUI cycles failed. And when my insurance changes and my medications were $500.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Michael Lydic at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine.
IUI was $500 each Meds around $1200

Describe Michael Lydic's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine.
He typically elects to only transfer one at a time - which if we’d had more, we would have preferred to transfer more than one at a time. He said he could work with us if we had more than 1 to transfer.

How was your experience with Michael Lydic at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine?
Dr. Lydic was absolutely amazing. He knows what he is doing and he does not provide false expectations. Although I have only seen him twice throughout the process he has never ceased communication with me or my partner, and was always available to answer questions.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Michael Lydic at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine?
Being a healthcare professional myself I only utilize providers that are personable and truly care about their profession. He made sure that my husband and I thoroughly understood our situation and treated us like human beings. Dr. Lydic was extremely kind and understanding that I have had extreme sexual trauma as well. I absolutely loved my experience with this man.
Describe the protocols Michael Lydic used in your cycles at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
The first cycle was letrozole alone and the trigger shot on standby to grow my eggs on my unblocked side. We missed ovulation and had to begin again next cycle. Next cycle letrozole and a vaginal insert. That cycle we did not get viable eggs of a good size on that size, and no IUI. The last cycle we did letrozole, clomid, vaginal inserts and the trigger shot which produce two on my left and one on my right. All viable. then followed up with progesterone vaginal inserts for 10weeks. I completed the IUI and was pregnant that cycle. I am currently 5 months pregnant without issue. I did find out though my first ob/gyn appointment that I got pregnant on the blocked side.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine.
Overall the nursing staff was great and answered all of my questions for the most part. The only thing that I can say is that they sometimes don't pay attention to what the doctor recommends. I missed two potential IUI's due to missed ovulation that I caught.
Describe your experience with Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine.
Overall I liked the clinic. They were always on time and were sensitive to my needs. They did struggle with having a lot of moving parts and there were a few things missed. I did appreciate that they utilized my insurance for what they could and provided pricing up front for the items that were not covered.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Michael Lydic at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine.
Total I spend including the IUI was in the ballpark of $800. Labs, medication, and imaging was included in this price. It is important to note that I had met my deductible for my insurance prior to moving forward with IUI.

I am thankful that I tracked as I am now pregnant. Out of 3 tries to attempt IUI one was successful due to me tracking my own ovulation and asking key questions.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Michael Lydic at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine?
Don't expect to see him very often.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Michael Lydic at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine?
The clinic is set up for efficiency, so they will get you in, get you out, but without any warm, fuzzy bedside manner. The ever-changing rotation of nurses that would see me at visits were friendly, but I learned not to expect consistency in seeing the same faces. In the 2 years I was treated, I saw my actual doctor a handful of times. It wasn't a bad experience, but not the most personal.
Describe the protocols Michael Lydic used in your cycles at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
IVF was our only option because of male factor infertility. I went through one egg retrieval with low doses of gonal-f, centrotide, and lupron as the trigger because of risk for OHSS. My body reacted well and resulted in 27 eggs, 22 mature, and 11 successful embryos. My first FET was successful and I started taking estradiol and PIO before the transfer. I was on a dose of 2mg of estradiol 3x's/day and 1ml of PIO once a day for 10 weeks. My second FET was successful and I followed the same protocol except increasing the PIO to 2ml once a day.

Describe your experience with Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine.
Pros: efficient at getting you scheduled and once you are in the system, it is a very smooth process with appointments and scheduling. Cons: you feel a little bit like a number. You don't see the same nurses every time and you'll talk to your RE maybe a 2-3 times during a cycle. Communication is always through a digital portal which adds to the feeling of distance -- like you can't talk to a real person when you have questions.

While we only saw him [Dr. Michael Lydic] a few times in person, he was always reachable via the portal or would call when necessary to go over risks of something and if there was change of plans and would explain why the change was necessary. He is not the one who does monitoring appointments, but he would review the results and send messages in the portal himself
I never had to wait very long to be seen [at Kansas University Center for ARM] for appointment times at all. Getting lab work done in the clinic was quick and easy as well. I liked that the ER, Transfer, monitoring appointments, and blood work was all in the clinic. Most communication is on the portal, so if you’re a person who likes to call or communicate over the phone, it may be harder to get ahold of them. The ER care was very warm and welcoming! They made sure that I was well taken care of and comfortable.

He is not the one who does monitoring appointments, but he would review the results and send messages in the portal himself or a nurse would based on the appointment.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Michael Lydic at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine?
Your direct contact will be with nurses and that’s who sends messages most of the time, but Dr. Lydic is still available to answer questions if needed and will always call when setbacks or changes occur!
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Michael Lydic at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine?
He made sure to call me himself whenever I was at risk of OHSS and when we had to switch from a fresh transfer to a freeze all cycle. The nursing staff was also very kind and helpful whenever I came in or asked questions on the portal. I felt like they monitored my cycle well and adjustments were made based on my specific body vs some clinics that do batch retrievals and transfers
Describe the protocols Michael Lydic used in your cycles at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
After our consult I did a couple blood draws to test my hormones and to rule out hypothyroidism. Due to my high AMH for my retrieval I did 75 IU Gonal-F and 75 IU Menopur along with ganirelix starting around day 4/5 of stims. My menopur dosage was reduced to 37.5 IU and then before triggering I stopped taking menopur all together. This was because I had a lot of follicles, I could’ve stimmed longer, but due to my risk of OHSS Dr Lydic decided we would only be triggering with Lupron instead of a duo-trigger of HCG and Lupron. He explained the Lupron may not be as effective as doing the duo-trigger but my risk of OHSS was too high to do both. We checked my LH levels before retrieval to confirm my eggs were ready and they were! He explained ahead of time if Lupron didn’t work we would add the HCG. That wasn’t needed. Due to my OHSS risk we had to switch to a freeze all cycle. He explained this could happen at the beginning of my cycle so I was prepared for this. Due to MFI we used ICSI for fertilization. For transfer it was 4 weeks exactly after my egg retrieval. After my period came following ER, I started estrogen 3 times daily, then PIO 1ml 6 days before transfer day. I stayed on these until 10 weeks pregnant. I graduated from the clinic around 8 weeks.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Michael Lydic at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine.
Most costs were covered by insurance. Total cost before insurance coverage was around $13,000. This includes the ultrasounds and monitoring appointments, initial consultation, blood tests, retrieval and 1 FET cost. Retrieval and transfer being around 7,500 of that total.
Describe Michael Lydic's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine.
He prefers to only do SET. We asked about a double embryo transfer in our consult, but due to our age and other factors he would only transfer 1.

Dr. Lydic took time to carefully explain the treatment plan. I'm the kind of person who wants ALL the details, and this immediately made me comfortable choosing him as a doctor. We had many set-backs and failures, and each time I got a personal call from Dr. Lydic to express his sympathy and talk to us about next steps...He was a good guide through this difficult process. We've recently tried a new approach and I'm happy to report that we are pregnant...
The nursing staff [Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine] was very competent and helpful. They were prompt in responding through the clinic messaging system, and I felt confident that they had a good process in place for managing patient care. It felt like a well-oiled machine that you could rely on...appreciated that this clinic was connected to a university research hospital...the fee structure at this clinic. It was all-inclusive and straight-forward...
How was your experience with Michael Lydic at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine?
Dr. Lydic is patient and willing to offer as full of explanations as you want. I wanted a LOT, and never felt like he was rushing to get through with me. When we had failures--and we had a lot--he was kind and compassionate, calling personally to give his condolences and talk to us about next steps. We were very conservative in the sense that if there was a test to try, we wanted to do it, rather than try--and potentially waste--one of our embryos. Dr. Lydic offered us options and informed us about the possible outcomes to help us make informed decisions. He was a good guide through this difficult process. We've recently tried a new approach and I'm happy to report that we are pregnant!

Describe the protocols Michael Lydic used in your cycles at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
We adopted embryos. The treatment was estrace and progesterone to prepare the uterus for transfer and then support the embryo after transfer. After our first failed FET, we did a test to evaluate my optimal transfer window. We discovered that I'm in the small minority of women needing 6 days on progesterone before transfer. After the third failed FET, we did an EMMA/ALICE (which was, at that time, a brand new test on the market, so it didn't exist before this) to test to evaluate the biome in the uterus and see if maybe there was uterine inflammation that was preventing implantation. That test came back healthy and normal. We refused testing of the embryos themselves, but ultimately had success with a new set of embryos from a different couple.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine. (Assigned nurse: Christina, Raquel and Whitney)
The nursing staff was very competent and helpful. They were prompt in responding through the clinic messaging system, and I felt confident that they had a good process in place for managing patient care. It felt like a well-oiled machine that you could rely on. I worked with a few other clinics were I had to hound to get routine things done--like communicate or fax test results. This was never the case with this clinic.
Describe your experience with Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine.
This clinic is "professional" in the best sense. They seem to have clear processes in place that help patients through the treatment process. From in-take through treatment, I felt like they knew what was going on with my care and I didn't need to worry that I might be "falling through the cracks." I also appreciated that this clinic was connected to a university research hospital. That seemed to make a difference for my care as my doctor offered a brand new diagnostic test that hadn't even come to market yet, but that the clinical staff had recently had education on. The impression I got is that the clinic as a whole is dedicated to keeping up with the cutting edge of research and clinic practice, which I really appreciated.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Michael Lydic at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine.
I liked the fee structure at this clinic. It was all-inclusive and straight-forward: $3,000 for all the treatment needed for a complete an FET cycle (ultrasounds, embryology work and transfer). I often had off-site monitoring and the clinic would deduct a certain amount for that work done elsewhere. (Drugs obviously not included in this.)
Describe Michael Lydic's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine.
The doctor offered us good statistics on the comparative success of single embryo vs. multiple embryo transfer. He recommended single embryo, but was also willing to work with us if we wanted to do multiple embryo transfer.

Describe the protocols Michael Lydic used in your cycles at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
We started off testing my thyroid so we could adjust my thyroid medication and switch from a compound medication to levothyroxine. We tried several doses before we got the right level. Our cycle strategy was to take follicle-stimulating pills in my early cycle and then follow-up with ultrasounds starting on day 10. I would inject a dose of Ovidrel when my follicle was large enough for ovulation and go in for IUI in the next couple of days.

Dr. Lydic was very kind in helping us get to where we wanted to be...I loved that he presented us with a powerpoint presentation that helped us to understand the path he hoped to lead us down and was very receptive of our wishes as far as how we wanted to proceed while also letting us know what would be best or easiest for us. I'm sure he has hundreds of patients but he always made us and our concerns feel important...

How was your experience with Michael Lydic at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine?
Dr. Lydic was very kind in helping us get to where we wanted to be. Due to the state of the world we only had virtual or phone visits with the doctor - but I loved that he presented us with a powerpoint presentation that helped us to understand the path he hoped to lead us down and was very receptive of our wishes as far as how we wanted to proceed while also letting us know what would be best or easiest for us. I'm sure he has hundreds of patients but he always made us and our concerns feel important. I never minded that I never got to meet him face to face because I knew he was always one email away if I needed him.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Michael Lydic at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine?
As a female, I was hesitant to go with a male doctor as I think many women are - but he was great. We chose him because we could get in with him the quickest and I'm so glad we did.

Describe the protocols Michael Lydic used in your cycles at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
We did ovulation induction for 8 months with just Ovidrel trigger shots to try to conceive and eventually introducing clomid the last two months to produce more eggs. My first month doing this process we had a chemical pregnancy and Dr. Lydic said we could opt to do IVF if we wanted to speed up the process of hopeful pregnancy, but I opted to continue with ovulation induction instead.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine.
Everyone was so responsive and kind. I enjoyed my time with KUREI. The only issue I ever had was when I would have a positive pregnancy test, they were quick to congratulate and be excited for you but as a patient at a fertility clinic, I always expect the worst and am slow to be get my hopes up about positives without seeing consistent moves in a positive direction so it made it hard to keep my cool with them being so excited from the start. BUT I also understand why they are encouraging so it's not a fault of theirs - just a different perspective.

A larger majority than expected was covered by insurance, but I met my deductible of 2k the one full year I was with them.

How was your experience with Michael Lydic at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine?
Dr. Lydic is great at explaining tests and procedures to patients during appointments. I left each consult with all of my questions answered. When a different on-call doctor cancelled my fresh embryo transfer without an explanation, Dr. Lydic called me on a Sunday evening (without my request) to discuss the change and answer my questions. It made me feel 100x better and I was so grateful to have a doctor who cared about my feelings. My biggest complaint would be that I never met him in person until my FET. This is partly due to Covid, but when going through such an intense procedure it feels odd to not know your doctor.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Michael Lydic at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine?
Speak up about things that are important to you because Dr. Lydic is very willing to listen to his patients wishes. Advocate for yourself every step of the way.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Michael Lydic at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine?
I felt like Dr. Lydic made wonderful decisions to help me conceive and truly cared about me as a patient. However, it’s very easy to feel like a number after several months of trying IUI/TIC without success and no explanation for why things didn’t work. When it came time for us to do IVF, Dr. Lydic was amazing at communicating with me and reaching out when there was a change to my plan of care. My experience with IVF was amazing.
Describe the protocols Michael Lydic used in your cycles at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
My first cycle we did low-dose letrozol. I have a high AMH of 10.96, so low- dose made sense. I only produced 1 follicle and the IUI was unsuccessful. My next cycle he tripled my dose to the max dose and I responded perfectly, although it was unsuccessful. For my third IUI we used the same protocol but it didn’t work. After that cycle I still wasn’t ready to try IVF so I opted to do TIC while we considered our options. For my 2-3 TIC cycles, we added clomid to my protocol to get my follicles. Nothing worked, so we moved on to IVF. My IVF protocol was pretty typical for a PCOS patient and it worked well for me.

Describe Michael Lydic's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine.
Dr. Lydic did not give the option for multiple embryo transfer.

Dr. Lydic called and left a voicemail about a week prior to our first appointment to welcome us to their clinic and let us know they were excited to meet us and help us grow our family. That was such a nice touch!...very clear and explained things very well during our initial virtual consultation...did not hesitate to jump into easy interventions and didn’t make us wait any longer to start our journey to the rainbow baby I’m currently carrying.
The clinic [Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine] is easy to access right off a major highway. They do book out pretty far, so just be aware. They will have the first consult via video just to talk history and a plan of attack. I didn’t even visit the clinic until after we finished our first cycle of meds and were being seen for a sonogram scan to measure follicles. The only time I actually saw or spoke to the Dr was at the initial consult. Every other contact was a nurse or sonographer.
How was your experience with Michael Lydic at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine?
Dr. Lydic was very clear and explained things very well during our initial virtual consultation. He was patient and answered all our questions being a newbie to the fertility treatment world. He did not hesitate to jump into easy interventions and didn’t make us wait any longer to start our journey to the rainbow baby I’m currently carrying.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Michael Lydic at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine?
Track your cycles and come educated about your body and what you’ve tried so you and your doctor can pick the best/most effective course of action. Also highly recommend fertility acupuncture (I’ve been doing that since 6 mo after a miscarriage…about 3 mo before seeing Dr. Lydic for help).

Describe the protocols Michael Lydic used in your cycles at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
We tried one month of letrozole with monitoring sonogram to measure/count follicles and ovidrel trigger shot when follicles were mature for fertilization. We were successful on our first round. I’m currently 15 weeks pregnant with our first child, a rainbow baby.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine.
The nurses were very understanding and compassionate about my history of miscarriage and did everything they could to keep me informed about what they saw and what was happening. Not being left in the dark eased my anxieties so much!

Describe the costs associated with your care under Michael Lydic at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine.
My insurance provided no coverage for fertility treatment. The initial consult was close to $300 out of pocket. The letrozole was cheap (maybe $15) and the trigger shot was $100. So our round of fertility treatment cost us around $415.

Dr. Lydic was warm, thorough and direct. He always took the time to answer our questions and treated us with dignity. I never felt rushed by him and felt like he cared. Whenever there was a setback, he always took the time to look at it from all angles and decide on a new course of action...Dr. Lydic prefers to only transfer one (eset)...We did five timed intercourse cycles with Letrozole / Clomid, one of which ended in miscarriage. When he thought it was time, he kindly but firmly told us when it was time to move onto IUI and IVF. Since our diagnosis was male factor only, I did a small course of Follistim / Menopur before our retrieval.
The nursing staff [at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine] is incredible. They're always reachable through the portal, remember you and care about your case and are direct with expectations. I worked with several nurses through our time, but each one of them had high standards and a lot of empathy...I had to deal with a lot of insurance problems on my own with little help from the clinic. They sent out a sheet of costs before insurance and I was basically on my own when issues came up outside of prior authorization.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Michael Lydic at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine?
Don't be afraid to ask questions, because he's not going to rush you and will answer your questions fully. (Often while drawing diagrams.) He's going to be invested in your journey and truly cares when there's a setback.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Michael Lydic at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine?
Dr. Lydic took the time to personally make calls when a transfer failed or we needed to change our protocol. Whenever I was there, I felt like a person not just a number.

Describe your experience with Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Michael Lydic at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine.
IUI without insurance costs $600. I had insurance coverage for IVF and paid $3,800 out of pocket for stimulation medication.
Describe Michael Lydic's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine.
We didn't have a preference, but Dr. Lydic prefers to only transfer one. That was in-line with our expectations.
What specific things went wrong at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine?
  • Provided conflicting information
  • Failed to consider drug intolerance
Describe the specific things that went wrong at Kansas University Center for Advanced Reproductive Medicine.
Once I got pregnant through IVF, nobody could consistently tell me when to stop meds and when my due date was; I kept getting conflicting dates. I also have a serious allergy to a common medication and had to constantly remind them.
