Thanks again - regarding waiting lists and choosing clinics, it sounds like it's prudent to be simultaneously signed up with several clinics that have donor embryo programs... Am I understanding correctly that I'd have to travel to the clinic for the FET? I couldn't have the embies shipped locally? I ask bc I read that you cannot "buy" embies, so any money a clinic makes would be from performing the actual FET. Is this true?
And if so, would they accept our workup from local sources? Are there usually no large amounts of money exchanged until you actually start a cycle?
