SG donor database

Hello
Well, we were approved for the 1:3 program for Shady Grove, and were assigned our username/pw. We were disappointed to see that there were only 12 donors total of all races in this program - surprising because when I was given a temp password there were 40+ - including one who was my exact ethnicity (mixed asian/caucasian) & body-type (5'7", medium build.) Of these, there is only one who could be passable - but I don't want to pick someone just to pick someone. I don't want to sound cruel - but really it looks like these women are not the caliber we had hoped - heavier, shorter, older, less athletic. Did anyone else have this experience with SG? Did waiting a month help? Does anyone have an idea how much the pool increases if we pay the extra $9K?
Thanks

Susan

If we have time we will have to check out the pan/asian sounds yum...


So when you did your transfer you stayed there for 3 days? Or do you live in the area - I had thought about that - for my IVF they told me to lay low for 3 days if I could - I laid around for 2 days then got up - but stayed home from work.


I am sure I shouldnt get on a plane right after... Hmm maybe lay in the back seat LOL

I had the same experience with SG once we started exploring DE options.

Just a note to all who are looking at the database...I DO remember that in the summer their data base really went down because women got busy and didn't sign up OR women don't want to cycle in the summer......my 2nd donor wanted to wait until the end of August to cycle because she had vacations to attend to...............just my 2 cents...

Hi! Good to see you again ! We went to the Frederick office to start off--that's where we met our awesome RE Melissa Esposito---all tests and transfers are done in the Rockville office. Where in NY are you from ? I think someone initially flew the shuttle down to washinton National and took the subway/MARTA to the Rockville station and SG came and picked them up.....good deal if you can get a cheap fare. Good Luck !!!
