@tryingfornum1 - I wasn't a fan of Lynn B, I found her rushed and slightly intimidating to be honest - plus the one cycle I did with her was my worst result out of them all (although to be fair, they were all pretty bad in terms of results). I just wasn't sure why she let me continue on in that cycle.. My eggs were fried by the end. Plus I just didn't warm to her or feel a priority.
Get a 2nd opinion, find a new FS for sure. I think it sounds utterly bizarre that her office gave 2 sh1ts about who you put down as your NOK. That has zero to do with your fertility treatment.
Blonde - I POAS today because I love to POAS but at 8 or 9dpo, negative of course. To be honest I doubt it worked this month, I can just tell. I remember @Jem70 (I think!) saying she can tell when hcg enters her system and I reckon I'm the same.
My brother is holding up okay - he has chemo #5 next Friday, plus an interim scan and bone marrow biopsy next week too. He has apt then with the professor on the 26th and I'm guessing we'll have interim results then. Big couple of weeks ahead although I chatted to him today and we avoided talking about it altogether. I think he's blocking it again.
@tryingfornum1 - perhaps try Nick Lolatgis, he is just as, if not more progressive than Lynn (she trained under him apparently) and is part of Monash, I'm not sure what his beside manner is like, but at the end of the day you that's not what you're paying them for I guess? It's a tough one.
tryingfornum1 I saw Lynn too and I have to say I really disliked one of her receptionists in particular as she was so rude. I used to hang up and call back hoping I'd get the other one! It shouldn't be that way so I'd definitely complain as they shouldn't have any need or right to question your NOK. What does it matter to them?????
Lynn herself is very to the point and I found it hard to remember everything I wanted to ask as she rushed through. Sounds like that might be getting worse...
I would get another opinion and agree with emski to try nick longatis.
It's so crap that these dr's are so dismissive and cold as its such an emotional horrid experience to go through!
I had terrible experience with MIVF but my best friend saw Dr Kate Stern there and has had 2 BFP's from 4 cycles with her (2 stims and 2 FET), she has great feedback so she might also be worth considering.
