I am feeling better being at CCRM because at least I feel as though they are DOING things rather than just telling me "sometimes it is just luck." They put me on levothyroxine, made me do this mock cycle, etc. So the endometrial biopsy is done days 7-11 after ovulation and is looking for beta integrin which is a sticky protein that is important for implantation. iF absent, they treat you with 2 months of Lupron Depot so I just am hoping that I have it because that will be a drag. If I am okay, we will move forward in July or August. It is a little easier because we will use one of their donors who are all screened and ready to go.
Even if you are considering them as a back up, you might want to set up a phone consult because those sometimes are a 2 month waiting list and ours was free. It then allows you to move forward when you are ready but at least you are over the first hurdle. It is pricey but honestly compared to our cycle in Boston where we had to pay for agency donor with NO kind of guarantee, it is not that much more $$. SO far I am feeling more confident but I probably felt this way for our first try in Boston as well....Hope that helps!
