So I did some research on SART for a clinic and found NOVA. I called to schedule a consultation and they can get me in "this fall" um no thanks.
My last clinic was Kaiser but I am no longer with Kaiser so I can't go back to Kaiser Santa Clara (probably would have if I could by now).

I wanted to go to a clinic that had good IVF success rates because a) I think it says something about the clinic and b) If we have to go that route I don't want to switch.
Well according to SART the bay area sucks Or maybe I am reading it wrong? My zip code is: 95037 and I am searching 50 miles. I am 36yo.
Where would YOU go?

My temp dropped and I am just discouraged. Went to my sister's prenatal appointment today (called NOVA right after in the parking lot in hopes to make me feel better) and saw the gummy bear wiggling around kicking and such and tried not to think that mine would have looked like that

Best IVF Clinics In San Francisco For Women 35-37

THis one was best according to them...
UCSF Center for Reproductive Health - San Francisco, California - IVF Success Rates

what have you done so far as far as MA? I'm 36 also, I got pregnant with Maiya when I was 1 month from 35, and my RE (I'm in Florida) wouldnt do Clomid or Femera at that point (we tried for a long time with my son, so we got right in with Maiya) - and would only go straight to injectables (I did Follistim) if I wanted to work with him, he said that Clomid/Femera was a waste of time at my age...

I was hoping to stay closer if possible because "the city" is San Jose to me LOL! And it's about 90min to get to SF if we don't hit traffic
Thank you tho!!

We have been doing Femara and IUI. I did clomid too. I am not sure I would be put on inj. since I respond with multiple follicles on both. I have gotten pg but just hasn't stuck
But who knows... Thats why I want to see a real RE.
