Never heard of that and I've been to 4 RE offices - RESOLVE has great support groups locally but especially if you have to pay out of pocket maybe thats not the best clinic. This is all very expensive - they shouldn't make it more expensive!

TTC for 4 years (TTC for 3 years w/ex-husband adopted a now 10 year beautiful little girl from Russia)

1st IVF January 10 negative after 3 perfect blast - one frozen
Feb 10 begged OB/Gyn to do surgery for "pain" to see if tubes blocked from PID back when I was 16 - yep both tubes blocked - unblocked 1 tube
May 10 IVF #2 - 3 eight cell transferred neg again

Hello,



I'm new to the board and we're just starting our IVF process, but we are seeing a psychologist as part of our IVF program. It is included in the price of our IVF plan. We are not required to go, but it is highly recommended and we have scheduled it for the same day as our baseline ultrasound so that we won't have to make more than one trip (we are 2 hours from our treatment site).



Hope this info helps!

TTC #2 since January '09
Jan '10: IUI #1 w/ Clomid, Ovidrel

My RE (HAN IVF in the Philly area) has special IVF packages, but we aren't doing one of those because I have insurance coverage for up to 4 egg retrievals.
