1) Where did you cycle? Would you recommend it? Why/why not? If not, where would you have gone instead?
cycle 1: IVF1.com do i recommend may be no. The nurse were ok. Byt the Dr was really really busy. he did not even wanted to talk to his patients for 1 min. .
Cycle 2: HRC - do i recommend NO WAY - my second cycle was complete crap cycle. Dr P learned nothing from my first cycle. lori was sweet, very prompt at replying emails... but that will not get u success.....
1a) Was there a local-ish site you didn't go to? Why not?
i did one cycle locally. Now i am ready to travel any where in the world. but first i need to trust that RE (which is very difficult) I think there is no RE who cares for there patients personally. IVF is just a money making methord.
2) How many cycles did you do? How much was each one? Was there a money-back program you used?
I did not look in to money back programme. as i was over confident. as i am 28. Now i am not eligiable for money back programmes as i have 2 failed cycles. BOOOO.. I spent around 35 K both the cycles & my insurance did cover few things.
3) From the time of your first consult, how long before you went forward with your first cycle?
i did consult in june 2010 then cycled in Dec 2010. Due to change of insurance.
4) Anything you wish you would have known before you started this process?
I wish i had know that most of the RE dont be the same as how they were during the initial consult appointment & i wish i had not trusted there false assurance. I wish i would have know that non of the RE gives you personal care though i paid them a fortune.
I dont mean to discourage any one. But just sharing my HT experience.
