    How many cycles? Why Dr. Potter?

    How many cycles did it take you to be successful? First cycle it yielded One normal mail and one normal female. Transfer the female but it didnít take :-(

    2nd cycle only one normal Mail came back. As we are trying for a female we are considering Third cycle. Does anyone have any help or recommendations to increase normals? I am 40 years old. Conceived our son naturally in 2015

    We live in California but are not cycling with Dr. PotterÖ Does anyone know why he is considered the best? Iím not sure what magic anyone can do with older eggs even with a great reputation?

Why do so many people use Dr. Potter? Is it because he will work with gender selection? When so many other clinics wonít? Thank you for your help in guidance

    How many cycles? Why Dr. Potter?

    Hi Everafter! Sorry to hear that your first two cycles didnít work out, but thatís great that you can cycle again!

    Dr. Potter does see a large number of patients for gender selection, so perhaps that is why a lot of people do go to him. He is considered the best likely because many have had success cycling under him, he is amazing at what he does, the staff are amazing and it is all around a fab clinic! Itís also a very busy clinic, so that says a lot about it being a first top notch choice.

    Is there a reason why you havenít gone to Dr. Potter, especially since you live in California? He obviously wonít be able to tell you what kind of chance you stand without having a consult and without having current pretesting, but it may be worth while to set up a consult with him and see what it might look like for you. You truly wonít know until you do.

    How soon are you looking to cycle again?

    Thanks for writing back. We havenít gone to Dr. Potter just because I feel like there are so many clinics in California that do offer gender selection. So it seems so much more convenient to cycle locally in Marin and San Francisco County.

    Thanks for the information about the supplements. I was using Coq10 but Iím definitely looking into the DHEA. Iím also doing some testing for my ovarian reserve to see whatís going on. It seems like our problem is having not enough ďnormalsĒ we have sent a total of 13 blasts to testing and only three have come back normal unfortunately not female.

    Like everyone here. I just canít shake this dream gender of mine. Iím not sure why I canít be like everybody else and just shrug it off and call it ďnot meant to beď it seems to be my calling I just have to try.

    What I canít understand is I always seem to find ladies talking about having multiple cycle packages especially for gender selection. I havenít heard of any local clinics that will offer multiple cycle packagesÖ Roughly about 15 a cycle hereÖ

    If you have plenty of clinics to choose from that offer GS, then I can understand going with somewhere that is closer to you. What clinic are you considering switching to?

    Hopefully your pretesting gives you a better idea of where you stand with your ovarian reserve and cycling again. Sounds like you can get a decent amount of eggs, just that you need to increase the quality for more normals.

    Interesting! I donít know anything about multi-cycle packages since we never did that, nor were we offered anything like that. But to me, sounds like multiple cycle packages might be offered to patients who do have fertility issues and need some extra help, and extra chances getting pregnant vs. patients who have no trouble getting pregnant and are seeking IVF purely for gender selection. Maybe you wonít need a multiple cycle package next time though because you will get your girl!

    Hi Everafter. I’m so sorry things didn’t work out. I too cycled with Dr Potter for a number of reasons. He’s a strong advocate for gender selection. He makes it’s extremely easy for international patients like myself to go there for GS. He seems to get amazing results for many ladies on this forum and some ladies I know in the Toronto area where I live. I have Diminished Ovarian Reserve. He was very realistic as to what my success rate will be and what my expectations should be. The fact that you live in California it’s totally understandable why you didn’t go there. You have so many options. I did end up being successful with my first cycle and first transfer with Dr Potter. Currently 30wks pregnant. Wish you every luck with you next steps. ❤️
