Any Recommendations For Fertility Specialists In The Philadelphia Area?

Any Recommendations For Fertility Specialists In The Philadelphia Area?

My partner and I are currently TTC and started our first round of fertility treatment, but unfortunately, it was unsuccessful. I know patience is key, but going through something like this isn't easy. I'm looking for a provider and team who are compassionate, sensitive, and patient-centered.

Not at all! And I was taking the ovulation induction medication, letrozole for 5 days w/ monitoring starting 3 days after taking the last pill, and timed intercourse was recommended once my ovary produced at least two matured follicles.

Which treatment did you go through if you don’t mind me asking?

Thank you! I am balancing eating healthy, taking supplements, and exercising. I have a reproductive endo. but not too happy with the team there. I am hoping to find a different provider soon.

My husband and I are taking the same fertility routine. We started back in May after losing our little girl at 20 weeks in January. It's been a true journey that's for sure. FS had me on treatments for 2 months and then stopped when ovaries had a few cyst that did not resolve them selves. I had to have laparoscopic surgery recently. The doctor removed the problem cyst and biopsied the tissues. Test came back non cancerous so he has approved to start ovulation inductions again. Since I was still healing we did not do it this cycle, but next cycle is a go. I wish you the best of luck and hope that we both have our little miracles soon.

YES, the trips back and forth to the clinics are almost like pulling teeth I have to go three to 4 times a month it seems like. I didn't have to do that when I got pregnant with her. My OB at the time prescribed Clomid it took 4 rounds of 50mg with 100 mg metformin. On the 5th round he upped my dosage to 100mg Clomid and that was the cycle we got pregnant on.

Since being with this fertility specialist, it's been 3 to 4 trips a month with a hour round trip drive.. Them telling me they can't tell if it's a cyst or follicles with Letrozole at 7.5mg with a trigger shot of Ovidrel, and since I did not conceive those two months he was wanting to get into my ovary. So that's where we are at this point. So yes lots of praying for the rainbow baby and to you as well!
