(arghh! I just wrote a long post and lost it b/c I guess the network54 server was down. Here is a pared down version.)
I'm so happy to have found this forum! My DH and I are starting the DE process, after 4 years of TTC, and two MCs. Two questions (for now!) for you all:
1. I'm intrigued by all the talk about which clinic to use. We have a doctor/clinic here in Delaware we are happy with. Even though we haven't had success, we feel we got good care from them and the doctor reconstructed/saved my uterus last year (it was riddled with small and mid-sized fibroids). He feels I'm a good candidate for DE, and I've already had a mock cycle that went well. Am I being naive for not looking into other clinics? His stats are not listed on sart.org
2. Anyone have experience with the donor agency Extraordinary Conceptions? Right out of the box, we have already had a dissapointment with a donor we really liked at the World Egg Bank (recommended by my doctor) who got snatched away by another couple. When we said we'd wait and asked if she would do another cycle with us, she said no (her schedule was too busy to do an out of state cycle). I haven't even told my DH yet, he will be very sad, as she reminded him of me. So I've asked my clinic for other egg banks, and they said to look at West Coast Fertility (Dr. Diaz). Extraordinary Conceptions was listed on Dr. Diaz's web site. I like the feel of the site and have found a donor I like. Any experience or insight about it? Or about The World Egg Bank, for that matter?
Thanks for any insight you can offer, and thanks for being here!
