Thanks for your opinion. I think my husband is thinking like you and I just make more emotional decisions. We were at BIVF and had issues that they would not take the embryos to 5 days despite our very specific request and documented order and in hindsight this was likely because of the quality of the lab.
We started exploring CCRM after our failed fresh cycle because of their high success rates. It has been a great experience so far....better communication, more thorough testing, etc but we will see. All in all other than the travel it will end up costing the same as BIVF since we used an agency donor before and our using an in-house donor in CO. As far as logistics, it is really 2 trips. The initial one day work up and then we will be there for 10 days for transfer/retrieval. They have also started a frozen egg program where the second trip would be shorter if we had used this but could not find a great match. Ironically...they are offering the guarantee for free with the frozen egg program (new donor if your cycle fails) and I guess they have never had to "pay it.") I am not sure if there is a right answer but we figured if we were going to give it another try we might as well give it the best shot. I do have a friend who had DE twins with Dr ?Ashby at B&W.
