Ok - so my last FET was a miserable failure even after i did the immune treatments. When i talked to my RE about why she think it failed she didn't have any real answers except the usual.... probably chromosomally abnormal. If i decide to move forward with another IVF, she wouldn't do anything differently. THe protocol i was on resulted in 20 eggs, with 13 fertilized and 7 going to blast. she said that is amazing especially for my age. However, she still would not recommend genetic testing for me yet every conversation i have with her about why the IVFs have failed, she mentions probably bad chromosomes. It makes zero sense why i shouldn't do genetic testing..... Anyway - i wanted to get a 2nd opinion and called the clinic to see the lead RE there. The nurse called me back and said the Dr reviewed my chart and decided he didn't have time to take me on as a new patient. SERIOUSLY??? Does my chart look that bad that he'd rather give up the $$$$ he might get from me doing IVF to just forgo me as a patient??? I get that a 40 yr old with failed IVFs, past uterine scarring and immune issues does not look attractive as a patient especially if you are looking to keep your clinic's success rates up but COME ON!!
What the heck do i do now, continue with my current RE who i really do like but don't understand why she doesn't think the genetic testing is useful and/or move on to another clinic?
