I am a patient of this hospital and recently had a failed FET cycle in the department of Reproductive Medicine. The failure is not a problem since I am a patient with so many failed IVFs at different hospitals.Everything at this hospital was quite great. I had this cycle as a fee paying patient. The staff is very Courteous and helpful. The problem is that this hospital offers you an option of Natural FET but at the same time they will tell you that if your expected day of transfer of embryo falls on Saturday or Sunday they are not going to do it and the whole cycle will be useless. I have this query why cannot such a big hospital with all the facilities arrange staff for the transfer on weekends. Its very bad, this way Patient looses an option and is loaded with unnecessary medicine that too the notorious hormones when these can be avoided. The duration of treatment is also extended as such since two cycles are needed, one to downregulate and another to control the cycle. I wanted to go for Natural FET but could not avail it just because they told me that if your endometrium is ready on weekends then the transfer cannot be made. I had no option than to go with the painful medication. Kindly make me understand what do you mean by Natural Cycle (Provision) in your hospital?
