I'm so grateful that in 2006, I was advised to go to Georgia Reproductive Specialists! The staff is amazing and made a complicated process into a less overwhelming plan of action. Dr. Perloe was my fantastic doctor, as I'm sure all the doctors are excellent there, and he made excellent judgment calls to make the dream of being a mother a reality for me in 2007. The staff was supportive and I'll never forget the call from the office to tell me that I was pregnant (the nurse and I were screaming together on the phone with excitement). I was so well cared for! Could not be more grateful to have my little angel because of the expertise of GRS!
Frederick, MD USA - [Apr 22, 2014 - 10:10:26]
GRS is awesome! Dr. Perloe and staff are wonderful. After two failed attempts with another physician, I conceived on the 3rd try. I never gave up and kept the faith that I would be a mother. My son is 4 yrs now and I am thankful for GRS!

Yippee!! We delivered twin girls on 1/7/2014! A huge THANK YOU goes out to Dr. Kaplan and her team! From our first appointment they made us feel welcome and truly supported. Because of her trusted staff we never felt lost or alone throughout the entire procedure. It was a blessing that we were successful our very first cycle. Dr. Kaplan and her team made our dreams come true!

Thanks to the entire staff at GRS I have a beautiful daughter that will be two in February. I came to GRS after completing several cycles with another practice. I immediately knew that GRS was different, they said they would do everything they could to make our dreams come true! 1st cycle worked like a charm!!!

Dr. Perloe is a miracle worker! My husband and I came to him when we were about to give up all hope of having children. We had been told that donor eggs were a possibility, but Dr. Perloe and his miraculous team of nurses were determined not to leave any stone un-turned. Now, we are proud to say, their efforts have paid off in a big way. We are expecting our twins in the fall. Thank you Dr. Perloe, Sheila, Yolanda, Tracey, and all of the GRS staff!

We love to share our positive and great experience with GRS. We are married for 6 years now and never conceived. We
have a male factor infertility and have ICSI as the only option to concieve. We tried ICSI in Other Place for the first time last year without success. This year we found Dr. Susan Conway in Alpharetta, GA and visited her.
Immediately looking at our previous reports and just looking at me, she told us the last ICSI failure might be because of my insulin resistance and PCOS that caused poor quality eggs and subsequently poor qaulity embryos. She immediately prescribed medications to control insulin resistance and we soon moved to second IVF round with my next menstrul cycle. She also came up with perfect plan for regulating my body to produce high quality eggs. I love what she did with her tremendous experience, as we got some very good quality embryos this time. The best two embryos that were transferred on day 3 made me pregnant with twins now. Expecting the babies in August 2011. This is our first ever pregnancy and me and my husband are very greatful to Dr Conway and her team. Joyce Ball, the IVF coordinator in Dr.Conway team is so caring and spent a lot of time with me and shared my emotional stress, that I specially want to mention her name here. Thank you GRS and Dr. Conway and her team is the best. I highly recommend Dr. Conway and I hope my experience can help other couples who are seeking help with infertility. I highly recommend GRS and Dr.Conway.

We have been trying for the last 3 years with no luck. We visisted Dr Susan Conway in August at IVF center in alpharetta.
The doctor and the staff are very caring and helpful. Dr Susan Conway suggested us to start with IUI. We are very lucky to have our second IUI successful. A very big Thanks to Dr Susan Conway and her team.
Alpharetta, GA 30004 - [Nov 07, 2010 - 07:08:15]
Fantastic service and support. The staff was very nice and took their time in explaining every step in the process. We would highly recommend Georgia Reproductive Specialists to anyone who is looking for a friendly, experienced, knowledgeable, and supportive staff in the IVF field.

Dr. Singleton, is the best doctor, she is kind and thoughtful, we had our first IUI and we got pregnant. what a great doctor, i encourage people to call GRS at once and ask for dr. singleton, she great!
WOODSTOCK, GA USA - [Aug 23, 2010 - 16:45:31]
Dear Dr. Perloe,
Thank you...we appreciate all you did for us during our IVF treatment at GRS. Even though we are lay people, your knowledge and expertise were obvious to us from our first meeting, we immediately felt confident we had chosen the right doctor. Your support staff is top notch...
Atlanta, GA - [Aug 04, 2010 - 14:49:33]
I have had such a positive experience with GRS, that I would love to share it with anyone is in seeking fertility help.
I came to Dr. Conway a few months ago to talk about my struggles with infertility. Like most women who have been in my shoes, Dr. Conway was not the first Doctor I had seen, I had shared my story and over and over again with a handful of Doctors. All who couldn't find a reason why I wasn't getting pregnant , and who left me with the famous words " your young, don't worry".
I was so relieved to meet with Dr. Conway, although clinically she agreed with my previous doctors, the difference was she offered me a PLAN!!! This was what I had been looking for, my husband and I knew we couldn't be left to keep trying unsuccessfully on our own. We then went through a round of IUI, which was planned out and totally stressfree, thanks to Dr. Conway"s caring staff. Then finally, even after having a disappointing 18 months of trying and failing on our own, my husband and I felt like the luckiest couple to have our IUI treatment work the FIRST ROUND! We owe a huge thanks to Dr. Conway and her team!!!
new baby October 2010!

I can't thank Dr. Perloe and his staff enough for all they did for me and my husband. Their compassion, determination, and thoroughness made it possible for us to have our beautiful daughter, who will be six years old on Sunday.
Senoia, Georgia USA - [Jan 06, 2009 - 17:37:55]
I wanted to let everyone know that I was a patient of GRS in 2005 and 2006. My experience with Dr. Perloe and his staff was amazing. I went to several other facilities prior to coming to GRS and found that the care I received at GRS was always done with the goal of making sure I was healthy and could deliver a healthy baby. Needless to say my husband are so blessed that we trusted GRS, and are now proud parents of 2 beautiful and intelligent little boys. We have a few frozen embryos left and are looking forward to vacationing in GA this summer and starting treatment for FIT. Hopefully we will be blessed with another little miracle.
I would highly recommend Dr. Perloe and his staff. They are wonderful people who care and will tell you if they can make your dreams a reality, they were a blessing for me and my family.
Thank you Dr. Perloe and GRS for our little blessings.

I am 21 years old and my husband is 25. We have been married for 2 years and have been trying to conceive every since. This october I was pregant with an ectopic. I had my right tube removed and found out that my left tube was partially blocked. This month my husband and I are starting IVF. Just remember that God is on your side and never give up! I ask that your prayers are with me.
Lake Mary, Fl - [Mar 10, 2007 - 06:50:49]
My husband and I know that IVF is our only chance for our own children. We have been married almost six years and know that we are ready to take this step. The only thing holding us back is the cost. We are your average couple living on the average income. IVF is a very expensive process. Can anyone give us suggestions on how we can afford and how to begin treatment?

I'm 42 and am scheduled for IVF in April 2007. However my fertility specialist is very negative and it's affecting me. Our problem is male infertility, everything with my reporductive system is fine.

pittsburgh, pa usa - [Feb 22, 2007 - 09:45:07]
I am 28 and my husband and I have been trying to conceive for almost a year. I been on Clomid (50mg) for 5 cylces with no luck. My husband has been tested and everything was fine. I just had laparoscopy last week to check for endometriosis and no signs of endomet was found. My doc ran dye through my tubes and they were wide open. He did find a blood filled cyst on my left ovary (2nd cyst removed off left ovary and I had 1 rupture on my right ovary). The only thing my doc told me was since he removed the cyst I should ovulate better. I have heard that flushing out the tubes sometimes works???? I look forward to hearing stories and advice. Good luck to all!!!

I am really glad I found this site. It answered a few questions I had. I was told a year ago that I had endometroisois, had surgery to help it. A few days ago I went to a different GYN and while reviewing my records found that I have a few more problems than just endo. The other doc never told me anything. My fallopian tubes and overies are attached to my colon and my tubes are enlarged. Me and my husband have been trying to get pregnant for 7 months now. I wasn't sure if this was normal or not. That is my story. Thank you guys for posting things it helps other people.
Every Lady trying to get pregnant you are in my prayers.

Thanks to this IVF.com I had all the information I need. I once had a "CHOCOLATE CYST" (8.4x8.4 in size)in my right ovary and Fallopian tube. My daughter "Mary Barbie" and I were just lucky enough to have such a great & experienced OBGYN. It was a great miracle to survive and enjoy life.
For those women with Endometriosis, I know you can survive it, too.
God Bless and More Power!

Hello all. I am glad that I have found this site. I found out that I have PCOS, 2 weeks ago. What they can not figure out is that I have been pregnant 3 times and one of those times has resulted in my son Ethan who is 1 1/2. He really is our angel. I then after having him became regular with my period that had never happened. Then I got pregnant again and loss the baby 4 months in. I have not had a regular period since then. It has been about a year. We are now going into trying metamorfin, now that they have diagnosed me. I hope that this works. I am not about to accept that I will not have any more children. I have beaten the odds once and will do it again.
Good Luck to everyone.

My husband and I separated and a few years after I met someone and we've been living together for almost 7 years now.Im happy and I feel lucky to have met him because he loves my kids too, but I could feel his longing to have a child of his own. We learned about IVF but we cant afford the cost. If anyone with a kind and a good heart would help us with the cost of one cycle,please don't hesitate to e-mail us. It will be such a blessing...I need to keep this family, a family I haven't had since my childhood.Thank you and GOD BLESS US ALL...

I would be very interested to hear anyone's stories with Ovarian Drilling, if it worked, how long it took to conceive, etc. We are trying to decide which option to do. Thanks and best of luck to all of you as well.

Hello all, My husband Peter and I both have fertility problems. I was dianosed with PCOS earlier this year and was put on Clomid while we were waiting for Peters tests to come back, I only had a level of 5, I needed to have a level of 30, so I was devastated then the blow that Peter has a blockage and cysts..we get his results on August 1st and we're hoping there is sperm behind the blockage, we then see my specialist on August 10th where hopefully, we find out if we can be treated.. Please pray for us both and good luck to everyone who are trying for a baby... I will pray for you all.

My prayers are out to all of us! God Bless.

Hey my name is Amber. I am 16 yrs. old and I was diagnosed with PCOS almost one month ago! Everyday I wake up nowing that I am not going to be able to have kids and it just doesn't let me know that I am going to be able, too!
My doctor is doing hardly nothing about it and seems like he doesn't care! All he did was give me birth control pills and they are not working!
I don't know what to do anymore!

Hell--my name is Janet. I am 25 years old, soon to be 26 in Feb this coming year. I was diagnosed with endometriosis last July. Since then I have had two laperscopies.
My husband I were going to continue to push on but it is very costly. However, I was just awarded the honor of being the new "Mrs. Virginia International". With this new title I am using Endometriosis as my platform. I want to raise awareness of this disease in the medical and social communities. I feel very passionate about my cause.
And my question is--does any one know how I could go about doing a funrasier for the cause of Endometriosis? Would any one be willing to sponsor me? Please let me know!

Hello. I am 23 years old. In this january, I will have been married for six years. I noticed when I got married, I was having abdominal pains to where my husband had to rush me to the ER. They didn't find out what was wrong with me, just sent me home when the pains went away a couple of hours later with pain medication. I had went to a couple of doctors, and none of them could find out what was wrong with me. I had a cyst in my right ovary which was causing all that pain, and I had been diagnosed with Endometreosis. For six years, I have been hoping to have my family. So my husband and I are going to give this IVF a try. Wish me luck!!!

I bought one of those ovulation kits along time before that, And It never showed a peak fertility, only a High. I dont think I have Ever ovulated. If This is true. How can I get pregnant?? Is IVF my only option??? Please email me if you have anything to add to this or if there is something you can help me with. Thanks

I am 32y old and I have 3 children. I had my tubes tied 1 year after having my son. We now really want to have another child, but can not afford to go through IVF. If any one would want to cover the cost of one cycle with all the expences, I would donate unused embreos or eggs which ever is chosen. I am sure with me have 2 of my children 14 months apart that we would not have a problem producing planty to share. Just email me.

Hello, my name is Stephanie and I am 32 yrs old. I have tried 3 cycles of IVF and all have failed. I just have visited Dr. Perloe here in Atlanta to see what his thoughts were. He wants to try a different protocol on me he said the one my previous docs used is what he uses on women who are 38 yrs and older. In the past there has been some questions on my egg quality. I recently did the clomis challenge test and everything was fine or it did not show that I was in pre mature ovarian failure. I guess I am wondering if anyone out there has had simalar problems and what should I do. I really want to try another cycle with Dr.Perloe but I almost want to go ahead with a donor egg or maybe even saragotte mother. Any thoughts???

Dr. Perloe is awesome! and his staff too! He took exceptional care of my daughter that has a reproductive birth defect. He was very respectful of her young and tender age. I would highly recommend him.

I have been dealing with chronic pelvic pain since I was 12 (9 yrs). All the females on my moms side have been diagnosed with endometriosis and have all had hysterectomy's because of it. My GYN P.A. put me on oral contraceptives, which helped but the pain was still sometimes too much to bare.I have tried for years to have a simple laparoscopy done to see if I also have endometriosis, but was turned away and told to just stay on birth control.Even though this will ease my mind,I am still so very worried about the rate of infertility with this disease.I am just hoping there is somebody who understands what I am going through and will have some answers and hope for me

When I met my husband he'd already had 3 girls. I have the honor to help raise the two younger ones with him. However I long for a child of my own. We have been through one surgery. My tubes had lots of scar tissue. I was going to go through with the rest of the IVF, however our health-care did change and no longer would pay as much. Ladies remember there is no price on life. If you want it bad enough go find away. I have been having dreams of having my very own and they come often. I believe this is a sign from God to start my IVF again and try once more. These doctors are God's gift to us. Thank them often. Best wishes to all...~smiles~
Carrollton, GA USA - [Aug 16, 2005 - 10:48:55]
I'm 25 yrs old and they think I have endometriosis. When I was 20 and was in the military, I had the laparoscopy surgery and they discover that both of my tubes were blocked with scar tissue and adhesions. Five years later and now they come at me with this endometriosis. The one thing in life that women should be able to do naturally has been taken away from me and I don't understand. I've always vision myself as a mother.[ I know I would be a great mom. I don't know how to deal with my situation, I am going crazy. I find myself asking the same question day after day "Why Me?". I just don't understand. And once again I ask this question "Why Me?".

Hi, My name is Jane. My husband and I have been married for 5 years.I'm on Follistim shot, I produced 11 eggs. On the 16, 17 of July,an IUI procedure was done,everything was in our favor. On July 28th I started bleeding. Physically I am fine, but I am not emotinally. I am starting with fertility shots all over again.It's such an emotional roll-a-coaster.Some of my friends say that I can always adopt,but they don't seemed to understand that I want "My own baby" that my husband and I created together.I want to experience the miracle.For everybody that is going through this painful journey. Just keep on trying...Please feel free to e-mail me at:firstname.lastname@example.org

I am a 32 teacher and have been trying to get pregnant for over 10 years. I just had surgery to remove endometriosis and BOTH of my tubes. My only hope of getting pregnant is IVF and my husband and I are having a hard time finding the money to fund it. My heart breaks every month when my period comes and every time a new teacher at my school gets pregnant. It is so hard to face women who are pregnant when all I want is a baby. May God Bless everyone else who wants a baby like I do and those who are fortunate enough to have one.

I have had 8 miscarriages in 8 years. I finally found out the I had a genetic disorder and was told that I won't be able to have children. I was devistated. After finally giving up hope, my husband and I got preganant again. After having 32 sonograms, my little boy was born healthy and happy. I am 36 and he is now 6 1/2 months old and he is my life. This is the first web site I have found that actually gives support. I have decided to write a book on woman and there husbands experiences to help other woman. Please email me your story with permission to put it in my book. People need to know what we go through loosing a baby. DO NOT GIVE UP.
Richardson, TX USA - [Jun 15, 2005 - 09:16:08]
I am only 24 and I had to have a Hysterectomy at age 22 because I was suffering with Endometriosis. I still have one tube and one ovary, but am experiencing the early stages of menopause. I would love nothing more than to have another child. I am checking into IVF and hoping for the best. I almost think I could have been okay without the surgery, but I still have problems today with the Endometriosis, the pain never fully goes away.
Winchester, VA USA - [Jun 03, 2005 - 06:02:03]
I have Endometriosis, I have had both tubes removed, I've had 5 surgeries to drain cysts from both ovaries. I am 32 years old, me and my husband are doing IVF because we really desire to be parents. It has been really hard to get pregnant. My husband and I have gone through so much. Well I am now on meds to try for the third time to get pregnant. I have 8 frozen embryos, they are going to put 4 this time. Well I am praying to God that he can give me that wish of being a mother. Do not give up on your dreams.
