I think sometimes it is just good to get a fresh start. I actually went to two clinics before switching to NYU - Dr. Grifo - and while I know from reading your posts that you seem to have ruled out IVF I have many friends who tried for many years to conceive through IUI and injectibles and failed and then got pg on their first IVF try. The ironic thing about all your dxs is that it gives RE's a definite plan. The bcp high responder down protocol really can make a difference and the way I looked at it (four IVF's before getting pg) once you have an embryo all they have to do is attach. NOw I know from personal experience that that does not always happen but it might help to talk to a different dr. about your options and opinions. The problem with the big clinics is that once you start on any cycle you only see your dr. by luck - the nursing staff at NYU is very responsive and they ahve actually addeda fifth dr. Dr. Kump who seems really great. Anyway good luck with your decision and while going for a second opinion may mean you stick with your current RE I have found that they take asking for records rather personally. But you must do what is best for you. Good luck with whatever you decide

: I actually like my RE..but there is one thing that kind of disturbed me yesterday. I am thinking of going to get a second opinion. When a person gets a second opinion..can it be just that..going to get an opinion..does it necessarily mean that you are changing your doctor? I am so clueless about these things. I am interested in what someone else would have to say, but I am not necessarily interested in changing my doctor. Leslie
