Describe the protocols Mercedes Gondra used in your cycles at Gondra Center for Reproductive Care & Advanced Gynecology and their degree of success.
My diagnosis is new, but I do have endometriosis and Dr. Gondra's first step in treatment was to give me a choice to start IUI right away or go for a surgery to increase my chances. I did my research and endometriosis can be very aggressive, so I picked surgery. Endometriosis runs in my family, so I want to be prepared that I will need IVF right after surgery. It makes me sad that I might not be able to afford IVF like some of my family members After my surgery in a week, i'll know more of what my options are.
