Patient Q&A with Alexandra
Why do you want to share your story?
Going through fertility treatments is hard enough, but with the help and support of FCI, it made my journey a whole lot easier!
What led you to Fertility Centers of Illinois and why did you trust us?
My gynecologist recommended FCI and I'm so happy she did. The first time walking into the office, of course, you are nervous. The friendly staff eased my nerves and made a scary nerve-wracking experience a great one. The first time meeting my doctor my husband recommended we get another opinion. I shut that down right away. The first time meeting Dr. Hobeika I knew I could trust him by his comfort and good character.
What was the infertility diagnosis?
Diminished ovarian reserve

How would you describe your experience with your physician(s)?
The doctor showed me the care and support I needed throughout my journey at FCI. Not only did they show me care and support they made my treatment easy for me to understand and were there to answer any of my questions. They ultimately made my journey as smooth as can be!
What infertility treatment(s) did you undergo?
IVF - stimulation, egg retrieval, and 5-day fresh transfer.
What helped you through treatment physically and/or emotionally?
The support of my husband, family & friends.
Do you have any words of wisdom for others?
Stay as positive and relaxed as you possibly can. It's okay to have bad days. Don't be afraid to seek help and support from family and friends, even blogs or support groups!

The baby is due in June!
