I spoke to my current RE. He thinks I have egg quality issues. He said my embryos were "iffy" quality. Technically they were grade 2 and the worst grade is 1, however they would have been better quality had they been more then 5 cells. He said I can do the blood tests I want (like karyotyping) although since he suspects egg quality I don't think he sees a point but he will let me do it.
He wants to ad LH to my protocol and said he will up my dosage to 300 gonal f if I want him to but he doesn't want to risk going any higher because he is afraid I'll stim to fast (which I probably would because my body is stupid).
I am meeting with the RE at the other clinic next week. I don't have the mental energy to search out other clinics since my insurance could change at any moment. As of right now I have it till April 1 2008 but that could change any time.
I'm hesitant to go to a new clinic because they have to get used to how my body works all over again.
anyhow, I don't know what to do. I should switch clinics and I might go with the local clinic if I like the doctor. However I feel guilty switching. This local clinic is MUCH smaller and their success rates are not any better. Boston IVF does over 3k a year and the local one does around 1k.
guess it's all dependent on what this new RE says.
I'm so angry right now. I suspected egg quality after my first IVF fails. Just goes to show that having a PhD doesn't always mean everything. I'm so angry and annoyed. I feel that if I was in charge of my cycle I would have been pregnant a long time ago!
Egg quality only gets worse as you get older and that scares me. I'm angry right now. Very very angry and sad.
