Hello. I was a trial patient in the Conventional arm and then ended up doing the mini as a paying patient at New Hope. I'm happy to share my experience with you. What types of questions do you have? Feel free to ask away

Also, if you haven't already, you should check out this thread - New Hope Fertility Center Clinical Trial - FertilityCommunity.com. There is a TON of information and lots of helpful ladies there.

I am really a believer in the mini. I was very happy with it and think that it is a good option for many people. If you don't mind me asking -do you know why you are having trouble conceiving or is it unexplained? Just wondering since you mentioned the quality of your eggs.
