The Bump Baby Registry
Now is the perfect time to start your Baby Registry!START A REGISTRY
Hey all! I promised myself I would try to stay off the bump this cycle since it's a break cycle, but I can't resist. I, of course, have some questions and this is the only place I know to go! So tomorrow (after 4 failed IUIs)I have my IVF consultation. This is new for me, so I'm just wondering what I should ask. I typically have tons of questions, but I don't even know where to start. Any tips for me?

Good luck! Here are a few possible questions:
*Pretests required, if so what and when?
*Any other appointments needed such as shot classes previous to cycle start?
*Timing as to when you can start an IVF cycle, wait list, etc.
*Protocol and medicines used?
*Ask for a mock cycle protocol to see when you would have appointments, when you might have injections etc.
*Chance of success at their clinic according to your age and dx
*Their SART score
*A breakdown of all costs and what is included and not
*Are monitoring and labs included or separate?
*Lab fees for creating and preserving embryos, what are their criteria for freezing?
*How will you get test results
*Whom should you contact during the cycle, nurse, IVF coordinator, lab etc.
*Does a nurse or RE do ultrasounds?
*Hours for monitoring appointments
*Will ER and ET be at clinic or a surgical center
*Will ER be a surgery or a procedure?
Good Luck it seems daunting but once you start and have your protocol it will make sense. Feel free to ask me anything anytime too!!!
Thanks so much! Good questions!
