Made it! I am not exaggerating when I say Dr. Luna is great..a genuine, skilled-his experience/qualifications are excellent, and wonderful guy. I am so happy to be working with someone like this. His office is setup in this really cool way with the exam room, bathroom, his office all in it's own suite type setup. Instituto Vida is part of a huge medical building, appears modern-new, but the office itself is nice and quaint which I like the low patient volume feel over high. Really comfortable, he was in no hurry at all.. Answered questions, drew diagrams, asked me questions- we just talked and he did all the exam except his nurse did bp, height, weight. I think I was there 1 1/2 hours? Didn't keep track but maybe..
The microsort office is really small, but again the girl that was there was genuinely sweet and getting really excited for me, saying very hopeful thoughts.. I needed it after first US. When I told her who I was working with she lit up and said what a great doctor he was and how much people love him etc. Dr. Luna told me he couldnt believe he hadn't been over to visit their facility yet so it was nice to hear the comments were based on reputation. The ms office is literally a reception desk, a room for the sample, a room to look at the sample (quality etc), then a room with the fancy machine and she showed me where and how the separation takes place. She said in a lot of ways the end result is better than what you started with for sperm because they discard the not perfect ones(slow swimmers etc).
The place I am staying is about 1/2 hour away but so tranquil with tile, pool, fountains,community kitchen, lots of green and a zen garden area..all is great except for my first US. I had 3 days of gonal-f injections and only 5 follicles developing so far. I'm only 35, my fsh was 8.6, then 9.5 another time and E2 was 18. He has added menopur 150 next two days to two more days of 225 of gonal-f... Anyone have any thoughts with this, he said not to worry that he is surprised I didn't have more, but we are going to look in two days and he's hopeful my body will respond to it. I'm a little sad about it.
