I was at the "advanced age" of 37 when my husband and I started our journey with Shady Grove Fertility. We had been trying to conceive on our own for over a year with no results. We went through the round of initial assessments and tests and found no real cause for our infertility. If I had been younger, I suppose we would have just kept trying. Our doctor, Dr. Jeanne O'Brien, was very realistic in her suggestions for a treatment path and we were never pressured to try anything that we weren't prepared for. The nurses and staff at Shady Grove in Rockville are amazingly friendly and the financial advisers helped us navigate the insurance paperwork. We finished 3 (or maybe 4?) cycles of IUI and were preparing to discuss what came next... and then success!! Our last IUI procedure was done on Mother's Day 2013 and our son Oscar was born in early 2014. Thank you for helping us create our family!
