Response to ISO Hispanic embies in DC metro area?


The only reason the clinic storing the embies makes any money is from your cycle there. I actually lived in DC and found the donor embie prospects there disheartening. Thanks to a rec from this board, I ended up on a waiting list at Center for Reproductive Medicine of New Mexico It took just four months to reach the top. They had maybe 10 profiles, of which 3 were non hispanic caucasian and 7 were hispanic. There were a few great choices (imho).

For my cycle, the profile I chose had 5 blasts in 2 straws - I struggled with how many to thaw but ended up thawing all and transferring the 3 best (3 because they were 13.4 yrs old and had been frozen, thawed, cultured to blast and refrozen before my time), and I got pregnant with twins.

Just a thought. happy.gif My total cycle costs including local monitoring via Shady Grove, two plane trips (one for mock cycle), hotel, meds and everything ran right at $8000 so not bad and not much more than GIVF would have cost if I ever reached the top of their list. There is a local clinic here too in DFW which I understand has minimal wait time but I don't know how many hispanic choices. I'd imagine a fair number though.

Good luck!!
