Hi DeeDee

I'm also at Cornell, and think I'd be more inclined to consider St. B's for DE. Their waiting list seems to be shorter -- 5 months -- they will also let you use agencies to find a donor which can make it quicker and gives more info about donor (neither NYU nor Cornell allow this). I've heard rates of up to 70-75% using blastocysts. I don't think it as simple as going on the waiting list -- you have to be put on medications for a month so they can take measurements to match with donor. I also think it is a different process which you have to emotionally adjust to, though I am sure initial consultations are a good idea ahead of time. I completely sympathise with time pressure - who wants to be changing nappies when our peers are planning to retirement ... not that this is a situation that any of us has chosen. Good luck with everything -- did you go to any of the AI DE workshops?

: Dear Dr.Barad,

: I cannot believe that I have read a post from you from 6:30 this morning!!!! I thought I was the only loony waking up like clockwork.. and on a weekend yet! YOU ARE TRULY AN AMAZING INDIVIDUAL!

: Now then, I do have questions.. this wasn't just patting on the back..

: I'd like to ask a hypothetical question
: Regarding FSH numbers, if FSH is done 1 month and it's high, so an IVF is skipped, then the next mo. it's lower.. does the lower number indicate that there will be more success for producing more eggs in that month where the FSH was lower?

: I have a few other questions (please excuse me)
: OK, DE is in the back of my mind and I'm definitely going on with that if my next IVF fails. My dillema to find the clinic that's right for me (I'm currently at Cornell but have heard that St.Barnabus is much better for DE). Can I put myself on a waiting list right away even if I'm not sure at St.Barnabus?

: I'm 43, absolutely don't want to wait till next year to have a baby so I am looking for your expert opinion..

: Now, go have yourself a wonderful Saturday and HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY weekend to you!
