Hi Maryeliz--thank you for the suggestion. I'm not specifically looking to avoid fertility clinics, so I'll definitely keep looking at Shady Grove. It's great to know that the staff there are nice. The impression I have gotten from looking at their website is that they have very set protocol that they aren't very willing to deviate from--for example, they expect all of their patients to take progesterone supplements after having IUIs, which is something I'm hoping to avoid. Has that been your experience?
Thank you very much for being willing to share so much information!
