Thanks so much, Jamie! You have been such a great resource. I didn't want to mention HFI partly b/c of my rant about my in-town RE calling HFI's office to talk to Dr. Gill and I didn't want to name names at the time. I thought about going to Dr. Check but there is no way to monitor in Texas while flying out to NJ on a last minute basis. The IVF cost is $11.8 thousand at HFI and if I monitor in Austin (about $400 per monitoring appt. in Austin due to no insurance coverage 2 weeks prior and 2 week after IVF). So, I am going to do my monitoring in Houston. The second week, I'm staying in Houston as I will prob. have at least 3 monitoring appts. Found a hotel for around $60/night which is a lot cheaper than the gas or the monitoring appts.
Dr. Gill has me on 75mg/day of DHEA. Per your experience, I'm taking CoQ10 (Ubiquinone 200/day). Not sure how I will respond to stims as this is the first medicated injectible cycle ever in my life. Dr. Gill says that we are going to proceed regardless of FSH. He told me about a woman that had FSH in the 50s or 60s and still got pregnant with IVF and I think DHEA helped her. Do you know about that story?
Will definitely keep you posted, most likely after this cycle is over as I will need to try no to think too much into things and just let Dr. Gill dictate what to do. I'm going to try to make it like a resort trip to Houston!
