Just to echo Suity - it's good to go for a consultation, or at least have a conversation with, several clinics at the beginning as you'll immediately get a feel for whether they suit you/seem helpful and approachable or not - that was you can start treatment feeling that you're secure in safe hands, and this makes a big difference. I rang round a few clinics and wish I'd gone with my initial gut feeling as it would've saved me several months of being with a clinic which I ended up finding rather unhelpful.
The other thing is, don't be put off by having to order sperm from abroad if your chosen clinic doesn't have a sperm bank. It's easy!
sorry things are so hard at the moment, you deserve a break. I hope 2012 starts looking rosier soon
Matilda congratulations and lots of
as you embark on your cycle.
, sorry to hear of what sounds like a scary and stressful first consultation. Don't worry about the process of ordering sperm, it's simple and as someone (sorry!) has said above, the best donor is simply the one who gets you pregnant! Did the consultant do an antral follicle count? It can provide more reliable estimate of ovarian reserve than amh and they can do it when they do an internal scan. Sorry if you've laready been there done that!
