The inside view from a reproductive endocrinologist
If you want to listen to information about fertility rather than just read it, please enjoy my fertility podcast at BABY STEPS RADIO . COM
Dear Dr. Lee,
I stumbled across your SND interview providing a link to your blog. I apologize if this is the inappropriate forum to ask my question. I saw through your Facebook page that you teach at Western. I’m a first year DO student at TUN, interested in REI. I was curious about the training process. Do you know if fellowship programs embrace DO applicants? Is it more competitive, because I won’t have an MD degree? Are there only ACGME-accredited REI residencies? Any AOA approved ones?
Your time is much appreciated. Thank you!
Dorothy, I personally can think of at least 4 RE’s who have DO degrees. It starts with doing an OB/Gyn residency and then applying for a fellowship.
Love the podcast – what a great idea – adds a bit of personality – keep it going 🙂
For the past two days I have been reading your blogs which are very interesting. I am 26 yrs old with endometriosis stage 4, my RE started me on Menopur 4 vials on CD 2 which was yesterday 3/28/11 and I go back for my first u/s and bw on 4.1.11. I had surgery to remove a cyst in 2009 and since then I have been trying to get pregnant. This is my first time trying this. Also my first fsh test in february on CD 3 was 9.7 and on Monday it was 9.0. My RE told me i also have Diminished ovarian reserve. What my chances of suffering with the menopur and iui? And is it possible for me to get pregnant doing the iui procedure ? This whole thing is nerve recking and stressful.
Seems as though my iPad changed a word. I meant to say what are my chances of using the menopur and doing iui? Sorry for the mistake above!
Dear Dr Lee
I ‘m 38 yr old with 2 unsuccessful iui. I’m currently in my resting cycle due two cysts (28,24), which has reduced to 24/21. Is this considered big cysts? During this cycle, i have two bad cysts and no follicle. Will I still have LH surge? My husband and I plan for an IVF in the near months, the IVF protocol that was recommend to us is called Luteal E2-Antagonist Protocol. Is this an aggressive protocol? I was told protocol with birth control is not aggressive enough? Thank you Dianna
Dear Dr Le
I forgot to ask for your opinion on accupuncture and herbs during IVF cycles. Could herbs cause more cysts while on other meds for IVF? Thank you Dianna
Dear Dr Le
Does birth control helps to dissolve overian cysts ? thank you dianna
I stumbled onto this site after doing some research on how to become a Reproductive Endocrinologist. I’m nearing the end of my 2nd year of medical school at a midwestern MD school, and will embark on my rotations starting in July. I have the unique perspective of being a non-traditional medical student who has gone through several rounds of Clomid/IUI and eventually a successful IVF. My RE experience was extremely positive and made me start to look at RE as a potential specialty. When I get to my OB/Gyn residency, do you have any advice (other than to go back and do a sub-I in 4th year), while on the rotation? Also, would you consider a blog post or podcast aimed at medical students interested in RE as a specialty?
Thank you so much for any help you can provide!
Forgive me, I meant OB/Gyn rotation, not residency! I must have residency on the brain!
Dear Dr. Lee
I am a 42 year old. I have been trying to conceive for at least 1.5 years. I have checked my FSH last month after I missed my period first time and FSH level was 19. I have contacted 2 different IVF centers and I have been rejected due to my high FSH. Do you think there is a chance to conceive? I missed my period for last 2 months but I just had my period after taking Prover 10mg for 10 days. Am I menopausal? Please respond to my email. Thank you very much.
