One of my favorite patients is a finalist in the Ferring Pharmaceutical Heart to Heart contest ( https://hearttoheartcontest.com ). Although Gena does not name me or Dominion Fertility, I have her permission to share her story and encourage all of you to vote for her by going to the Ferring Website https://hearttoheartcontest.com /.
Gena is an amazing individual. I diagnosed her as having Hypothalamic Amenorrhea and all stimulations were done with Menopur only. Patients with HA sometimes have suboptimal endometrial linings. This was the situation with Gena and we began discussing the use of gestational carrier following the disappointment that she describes in the video.
Ultimately they had a wonderful experience with their gestational carrier who ended up carrying twice for them.
I am so happy for the entire Marino family. They are wonderful people and hung in there with me through thick and thin. I once asked Gena if she had ever thought about jumping ship and switching clinics. She gave me that look and said "no way Dr. Gordon. You were not going to get rid of us!" Glad she hung in there and hope they win the $15,000 scholarship.
Daily voting is allowed. Polls close this weekend! Vote early. Vote often.
