In Her Words: Infertility Patient Offers Advice for Others- The Fertility Center of Charleston
When it comes to infertility, scheduling an initial consult can be the first step towards starting a family.
This is exactly what Savannah patient Lynn Strickland learned after her first appointment. She and her husband had been trying to start a family for years. After their consult and testing, they learned that Lynn had a lower than normal follicle count and her husband's sperm count was on the lower side. As a result, the treatment plan included IUI. Explains Dr. Singleton, "Intrauterine insemination, (IUI), frequently referred to as artificial insemination, is a procedure in which sperm are placed directly into the uterine cavity through a catheter near the time of ovulation."
It was after this procedure that the Strickland's received a phone call they will never forget. She states, "Dr. Singleton called me with all of her staff in the room. They congratulated me and told me it was successful and we were expecting a baby. It felt great. They were all so excited for us."
Due in the beginning of August, Lynn is looking forward to her gender reveal party! This Savannah patient says the team now feels like family and has advice for others who are struggling with what could be infertility. She says, "If you are questioning any ideas you may have when it comes to a fertility problem, reach out to Dr. Singleton and her staff. The office was warm and welcoming and always got back to us when we had questions. We had done the apps and the at home ovulation kits before meeting her, but we became pregnant thanks to The Fertility Center of Charleston."
