It went well, DH's sample was actually BETTER than last time- they transferred 350,000 this time as opposed to 310,000. The other stats were better on the sample, too. Dr. Rivera said it was a great sample.
I asked Microsort for their current stats and she couldn't give me any. She said she would have to get the numbers from their Guadalarja division, too. I also didn't get a purity sort % for this sample yet. She said last time there were not enough cells to get the percentage (???). She said to ask about this sort's purity in 2 weeks.
There was no one else getting Microsort done yesterday except for me, but she said the next couple weeks would be busy. I asked if I was the only person to try twice so far, and she said, there have been others, but when someone comes back a third time they come back to try IVF/MS. She didn't tell me success rates. To be fair, since I started dealing with MS earlier this year, there have been a lot of new employees. Adriana and Paulina are not there anymore, and Paulina was just there in June for my 1st cycle. The two women at the desk seemed to be newer employees, and possibly didn't know the stats.
Dr. Rivera's office is super modern and clean and busy. They are very organized. It is in a newer office skyscraper building, 3rd floor.
They even let me lay down in the room for the egg retrievals after my IUI for as long as I wanted. I had already checked out of the hotel so couldn't go back there to lay down.
Mexico City is very very polluted. I live in LA with some of the worst air in the world, and I was very bothered by the smog. The cabs like to drive with the windows down and usually don't have A/C (unless you take a big Chevy Surburban, which we did on the way to the hotel). The drive from the airport to Dr. Rivera and vice versa takes about an hour to almost an hour and half. My contacts and throat were hurting so bad from the air. It is very very dirty and poor and crowded in general, but like I have said before, the area by Dr. Rivera's and MS is very modern- lots of business people, new construction, largest luxury mall in Latin America, big new skyscrapers, etc. Poverty not as apparent by Dr. Rivera's. High police presence throughout the city. We did not do any sightseeing except go to the very nice mall everyday. We thought of going to the pyramids but didn't want to go north of the city for fear of drug violence. At no time did I feel threatened while I was there in the upscale Sante Fe district where MS and Ingenes/Dr. R are.
I still think it is worth it to go down there for an IUI/MS, considering I am going back in October if this one doesn't work. But I don't want to think about it not working just yet - now for the torture of the two week wait!!
I am on my progesterone supplements starting today. Twice a day. Picked up a 4 week supply at the pharamacy by Dr. Rivera's.
What week in September might you go down there, Jackieshope? Did you talk or email with MS or Dr. Rivera yet?
