Hi Ladies! This is my first ever post so hope I'm doing this right! My story, I've been a patient of MIVF for the last 2 years and have done 8 stim cycles. The first 7 of these were BFN but the last one was a BFP but resulted in a miscarriage when the baby stopped growing at 5.5 weeks. I'm in the process of possibly transferring to Dr Lyn Burmeister at Monash IVF but am having difficulty communicating with her. Before my most recent cycle with MIVF I had made an appointment with Lyn and after waiting a couple of months to get in to see her the apt ended up occurring the day after my last embryo transfer. I was quite optimistic when I walked out as she seemed to have some new ideas etc and put me on melatonin straight away etc. When I got my BPF I tried contacting the nurse by email to ask whether I should cease taking the melatonin because I didn't want to tell my MIVF specialist that I had been "cheating" on him with another specialist. I never heard back from the nurse and ended up seeing a pharmacist and he said to come off the melatonin so I did. Then when I went in for my 6 week scan and we didn't see a heart beat I contacted Lyn via email to let her know the update. Again, no response. A week later I had a follow up scan, again no heart beat and I was subsequently booked in 2 days later for a D&C as it was quite clear on the second scan when the baby had stopped growing. Another email to Lyn and again 5 days later no response, even when I had just said that I had been through a miscarriage. I ended up calling the rooms, which I find really difficult to do during business hours and they said Lyn could call me back after 5pm a few days later. As I have a 1.5 hour commute from 5-6.30pm I asked if the call could be at a specific time or at least after 6.30pm when I get off the train, she said no. She said if I couldn't have a phone call after 5pm I was going to have to have a consultation with Lyn. All I wanted to know was whether I should resume the melatonin, how long she wanted me to wait for my next cycle and to have a bit of contact with my doctor! Perhaps even a bit of sympathy would be nice! I ended up speaking to the receptionist twice, she wasn't aware of my emails, when I said I recently had a miscarriage she didn't even say sorry to hear that! I thought I was coping OK but to not hear any ounce of sympathy was really upsetting, particularly given we hadn't told anyone other than the pharmacist we were pregnant so have been grieving our only BFP loss in private. I really cant be going to Richmond every time I have a little question but can't be waiting weeks to hear back to a simple email either. I love my MIFV specialist, I can call the rooms as early as 7.30am and they will either phone or email me back. I can email my specialist and he will email be back as well. Makes life so much easier not to have to make an appointment for ever little thing, particularly when I have been cycling nearly every 2 months for the last 2 years which has required lots of EPU, ETs and progress scans. I like to keep the actual appointments for the those things, the ones that can't be managed via phone or email. Has anyone ever been treated by Lyn and worked out a good way of communicating with her inbetween appts?
