Hi ladies. I just registered after finding this site when I was searching for reviews about Fertility Choices and Cathie Sanchez. I'm grateful for finding this site after reading Sly's messages in this thread and a separate ED thread with Lozby an Petals. I've been in contact with Cathie Sanchez and just like Sly shared, Cathie told me about the Thai donor shortage and the donor reservation fee, as well. However, Cathie didn't tell me about the $500 fee for her answering further questions that Petals mentioned. I'm now expecting Cathie to spring that $500 fee next.
Sly - did Cathie respond in a more timely manner after the Thai new year holiday? Did you have any other concerns about her or her staff? Given what you know now, would you recommend Cathie or Fertility Choices to others? Before I pay the expensive donor reservation fee, I wanted to learn if your experience with her improved. Have you flown to Thailand for your transfer yet? If not, when are you scheduled to do so? Best of luck if you haven't yet!
Lozby - did I read correctly from a separate thread that you're now pregnant from your ED with Fertility Choices/Cathie? If so, much congrats!!! I'm relieved to have read your success on so many levels, but for me selfishly, it gives me hope that it could also happen to me and that Cathie/Fertility Choices aren't frauds/schemers about to steal the expensive reservation fee and never get back to me after it's paid. Do you gave any lessons learned or recommendations for me and others like me who are about to start on our journeys with Cathie? Would you still recommend Cathie?
Petals - you got pregnant from All IVF, didn't you? If so, very much congrats to you, as well!!! Same with you, any lessons learned or tips from going through All IVF?
Thank you, ladies!
