I got the embryologist name and researched the heck out of him. I found out where he worked before and checked those clinic's stats. They were both 40% which seems to be the standard. I have been to my clinic the last 6 days out of 7 and I can't image traveling 90 minutes each way to do that. This process is draining enough on me and if I was missing work and having drive time like that on top of everything I don't think I'd be handling it to well.

It can't hurt to go and check it out. If you go and hate it then don't go. You have to go on your gut - remember sometimes that is all we have is our guts and hope that this stuff works. You will know once you go there and have a few appointments or cycles if that is where you want to stay. If you decide the one farther away is where you need to be then you will be at peace with it while you have to drive there. I had to go to both of the clinics in my area and I suppose that is why I have peace about where I decided to stay for this IVF and I will have that peace that we made that right decision if it works or not.
