Today we got this great post on our message board.
Another couple got pregnant in Mexico through IVF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Here is the post:
Since I have been getting a lot of questions about my IVF experience, I wanted to provide a description for those of you thinking of going to Matamoros to get your fertility treatment.
I had an absolutely great experience with Dr. Garza. He is very genuine, warm and soft-spoken. His office is very professional and feels calm even if the waiting room is filled to capacity. His approach towards reproductive medicine is intuitive and he always starts with lower dosages of medications and then increases if response is not optimal. If a couple has good quality embryos, he transfers two first, resorting to the transfer of three embryos in consecutive cycles if necessary. I would recommend his practice without reservation and will be sure to go back to see him for future additions to our family. We just received the good news that we are pregnant so we are keeping our fingers crossed that this pregnancy will result in a healthy live birth. We still have a long way to go but have overcome the first hurdle towards bringing home a baby.
In total, I ended up paying $3799.49 for my IVF cycle (meds, Day 2 bloodwork and sperm freezing included). Talk about an absolutely phenomenal price!
My cycle went like this:
Day 2 - Baseline blood draw and ultrasound, Follistim (In US it's called Gonal) 200 ul once per day
Day 3 - Follistim (In US it's called Gonal) 200 ul once per day
Day 4 - Follistim (In US it's called Gonal) 200 ul once per day
Day 5 - Follistim (In US it's called Gonal) 200 ul once per day
Day 6 - Merional 225 ul once per day and one dose of Ganirelix
Day 7 - Merional 225 ul once per day and one dose of Ganirelix
Day 8 - One dose of Ganirelix and 3 doses of Pregnyl before bed to bring on LH surge
Day 9 - No meds
Day 10 - Egg retrieval
Day 11 - Embryos growing
Day 12 - Embryos growing
Day 13 - Embryo transfer
