ISO Fertility Specialist Recommendation in the Raleigh-Durham Area

Hello All,

My husband and I are TTC. After having difficulty conceiving naturally, we were referred to the Duke Fertility Center in Durham. However, we have had some issues with them and are searching for a new doctor in the Raleigh/Durham area. Since we are very new to all of this, I was wondering if anyone has a recommendation for a fertility specialist or office in the Raleigh/Durham area. Any suggestions are appreciated.

Thank you.

  • Hi Lisa, we were at Carolina Conceptions a few years ago when TTC #1 and had a great experience. We ended up getting pregnant without assistance (total surprise) but still recommend CC. 
  • We go to UNC Fertility in Brier Creek and have been pleased so far. 

    Me: 31   H:32
    TTC #1 Since 5/17
    BFP 7/14/17 - CP
    RE Dx: MFI, Unilateral Tubal Blockage
    12/17 - Clomid + TI
    BFP 12/22/17 - EDD 9/3/18
    BFP 9/5/20 - EDD 5/17/21

  • I highly recommend Atlantic Reproductive Medicine in Brier Creek - Dr Copland and Dr Walmer are simply the best. They offer compassionate care and are SO knowledgeable. Dr Copland was so patient with me - I didn't understand ANYTHING about infertility, etc. and she explained everything in such a calm and easy to understand manner. I felt completely comfortable. Even during the times we were not successful, Dr Copland was such a wonderful resource of info, love, and hope! It was with ARM that I discovered my diminished ovarian reserve and multiple fibroids. I later went on to have fibroid removal surgery and then got pregnant naturally. I still went to see Dr Copland for my first 'confirmation' ultrasound and she was so thrilled for us! She is great, and everyone of the nurses and staff at that clinic is wonderful too!
    Me: 35 DOR, low AMH = 0.694, and fibroids
    DH: 41 
    Married 10/25/2014 / TTC since 05/2015
    1st IUI 05/05/16 Letrozole 7.5 mg CD 3-11 + Ovidrel = BFN
    2nd cycle on Letrozole 7.5 mg CD 3-11 + TI = BFN
    3rd cycle on Letrozole but did our 2nd IUI on 07/01/16. 10 mg CD 3-11 + Ovidrel = BFN
    Onto IVF! Started Lupron on 09/24. Added Gonal F and hcg injections 09/26...... Trigger 10/07. EggRetrieval 10/09. Starting PIO, Estrace, and Medrol 10/10/16. Transferred 2 "strong/beautiful" embryos 10/14/16. Beta 10/28/16 = 998 mIU/mL = BFP with one baby, but miscarried at 9w5d.
    D&C on 12/06/17 and started taking BCPs 01/10/17 for the next IVF Cycle, which officially began stims on 02/18/17.
    Fast Forward: we got 4 fertilized embryos from that cycle. Transferred one fresh, but it did not stick, so we have 3 frozen embryos currently. Went in to the fertility clinic in July to talk about a FET of one of those three frozen embryos, but a new fibroid was discovered, and I was not cleared to do the transfer until I had fibroid removal surgery.
    08/11/17 had a mini-laparotomy / myomectomy to remove 6 fibroids, largest sized were the size of golf-balls! Once we were cleared to go about our normal lives (sex!) I got pregnant NATURALLY but it was a chemical pregnancy. The very next month we had another BFP and here we are now with a baby on the way! A TOTAL AND COMPLETE MIRACLE!

  • Carolina Fertility Institute has offices in Greensboro, Charlotte, & Winston-Salem.  I saw Dr. Y there for a bit.. Might be a bit of a drive for you but I did have a good experience with them & their nurses.
