It [Specialists in Reproductive Medicine & Surgery] was an outpatient clinic. Not too fancy but just right...What Dr. Sweet may lack in bedside manner at times, his main nurse Whitley makes up for it. She is great!...I did not have any eggs and was single do I needed speed too. I chose embryos I wanted. Continued on birth control pills until 20 days prior to transfer, then started Lupron injections, then closer I started taking Estradial several times a day along with progesterone injections and vaginal suppositories.
