Ughhhhh!! I've posted about this RE and my dislike.

We are just trying to get initial testing done before we move on to someone like Check. He refused to send DH's Sample for frag test because "we'll get the best ones in the lab anyway". Yeah...AFTER we potentially do a failed cycle and discover then we need ICSI. I feel like paying for a failed cycle, how about you? He also refuses antibody tests, says motility will tell us that answer

Am I nuts? I think he just wants to upsell ICSI instead of getting an answer with the obviously cheaper test. We've had obvious signs that these tests are needed and he's the one that still thinks I dont need RPL workup either. I'm gointo find an ObGyn for that one
