How did you decide on your fertility specialist/RE? My Ob/Gyn sent me a list of 5 to choose from, and then my friend sent me this website: http://fertilitysuccessrates. com/report/United-States/ women-under-35/data.html.
Should I just pick the one with the best rates from that website? Or anythign else i should look for?
My story is BFP after 4 cycles trying, followed by MMC and D&C. I’m just in the FW of my 3rd cycle now, but since I’m 40 I want to be proactive. Although I’ve already initiated every test under the sun – blood tests, ultrasounds, HSG, and Darling Husband has had two SAs. Everythign is normal. I’m just old. 😛

BiancaBee33: I can’t speak for how to select based on success rates as I was referred to a particular fertility clinic by my family doctor. But in addition to success rates, I would also base my decision on convenience of location (either to home or work) and hours of operation. There may be instances where you may have to go in on a daily basis and it makes a difference when you can fit it in to your daily schedule. My clinic is 10mins from home and opens at 6am so I can easily go for my monitoring appts before I start work. Best of luck to you!

My initial RE was referred to me by my OB/GYN. He was about 8 mile from my house and 50 miles from my work. It was a pain to see him, and I just didn’t like him. He retired the second month of having us as patients.
So when I looked for a new one, I looked for one that was fairly equidistant from work and home so I wouldn’t be driving too far or taking too much time off work. I like them, they seem to have good reviews and the staff is great.
