With many of our patients come to us after having unsuccessful cycles elsewhere, Boston IVF — The Albany Center understands that future treatments can be an emotional and stressful process.
We have extensive experience in helping patients conceive, despite histories of unsuccessful fertility treatments, because we know that failed fertility cycles provide clues for the next treatment to be successful.
Many patients who experience an unsuccessful fertility cycle often give up. Not only are they disappointed, they are also upset about the fact that their doctor does not usually give them a clear explanation for why their cycle failed – or what they can do differently the next time to improve their chances of success. While some stop financial reasons, others come to the conclusion that they are destined to never have a baby and admit defeat prematurely.
Our team of experts will help you determine the BEST course of action for you and your partner/spouse.
What We Will Do
1. Review Your Medical Record
Our goal is to go over every detail of a patient’s previous treatment. We are looking for any possible reason for the cause of one’s infertility and the best options for treatment.
2. Schedule an Initial Consultation
During the appointment, your second opinion physician will review your record in detail including discussion about the testing and treatment(s) you have had and medications you have and/or are now taking.
3. Re-examine Previous Testing
Usually tests that have been correctly and recently performed do not need to be repeated. Certain important diagnostic tests, however, will be reviewed by our experts, and ordered, if inconclusive.
4. Review Your Results & Develop a Plan
The second opinion consultation can result in new ideas about additional testing and treatment options that may have been overlooked. A second opinion is not only a fresh look from a different set of eyes, but also physicians have differing professional experience to draw upon in assessing the circumstances associated with a patient’s condition.
