choosing a doctor

august 2013
we had to decide.   decide on a doctor for our last ivf.  our hail mary.  the all our eggs in one basket cycle.  the no stone left unturned cycle.

our choices- 

Crazy european doctor in las ve.gas.  says i can't get knocked up and stay knocked up without him and his crazy iv mayonnaise drugs (IViG)


local baby factory doc.  says, "i don't know, maybe we can try?"

(For the record i know that IViG has helped many women with RPL to get pregnant and stay pregnant.  and for that matter helped many with autoimmune issues.
i am not knocking it.  At All.  its just my way.  i mean its got eggs and oil in it....mayonnaise)

hubs was not too keen on an ivf cycle in las ve.gas.  with a doctor we wouldn't meet in person until like 2 days before retrieval.  plus traveling during a cycle sounded like a nightmare.

so we chose the local factory doctor.

he wanted to start right away…..i was on CD1.
he wanted to order meds, have them overnighted, set up PDG with my health insurance, and do the baseline the next morning and get the show on the road. (all in two days)

i was in.  and so was hubs.

and then we left the office….. it was too quick.  i needed a minute.  i wasn't ready.

  1. IVF is such a stressful and emotional process. If you are not ready then don't jump into it until your heart is ready.
