    Jenni.... yes, there's absolutely no problem doing back-to-back FETs, if you are doing non-medicated FETs - it's kind of just like regular people DTD each month!! When I say, non-medicated, there's usually still some medication, but nothing like a full stim cycle. Some ladies, who have irregular cycles, do medicated FETs, but if your period is fairly regular then that's what they'll probably do. My clinic makes us ring on day 1 of AF to book everything in, so just check.

    @Jenniwithanl: If i remember correctly, PGD testing is done on day 3 embryo. I'm not sure if they can do day 5. The procedure requires taking out cells. Blastocyst has expanded without distinct cell so I don't know how this works. I would be curious to know.

    Bertie what sort of meds do they put you on for FET? Is it the sort of thing I could do next month or would it be suggested to wait through another natural period cycle before going again after this miscarriage?

    BB - really? Oh that's a shame about the testing being 3 day. All my 8 are 5 day. Do you know how they pick the best one to go with next??

    Oh well I will ask tomorrow when I see my FS.

    Default Azoospermia

    I think so. They do it at day 3 so let the normal ones grow to day 5 for transfer. In Perth, it would be a freeze all cycle without transfer as we don't have a lab that does it!!! I heard terrible story about embies got destroyed during transit. That's why I flew to syd for my last transfer instead of shipping it back here.

    Anyhow, they will thaw one good grade and then if that doesnt survive, they thaw another one....

    I was on a natural FET. Like it. It supposes to be more natural for your body. I don't see a problem of doig it back to back. It wasn't a choice for me as I wanted to get to the bottom of te problem before giving my last embie the best shot.

    Jenni.... I've only done non-medicated FETs, as my period is always 28-29 days. You could easily do it straight away, but normally would wait one month after an IVF cycle. Then you can do FETs every month until you run out of embryos.

    Hi, azoo gals,

    we have been struggling with the donor selection process. Lesson learned. If the clinic has a waiting list, you should make sure that they are likely to have the type you are looking for or else you would have disappointment and feel like those precious time has been wasted.

    We really are not that picky. Physical characteristics, similar education and health. If no physical characteristics match, at least the other two. It turns out to be pretty hard to just have the last two selection criteria. At the moment, we are desperate enough to just randomly select someone as long as the donor is healthy. And we did. So will this turn into "buyer remorse" scenario? I guess if we don't have a comparison, we won't have been so worked out about not having a choice here. We have found few donors who have all the above selection criteria but only if we go oversea. US sperm bank is happy to ship the vials to Asia. And it turns out that this option is unrealistic for low success rate on IUI.

    Perhaps those who now have the bub can tell me that it is OK for choosing someone who doesn't have any similarity to DH but the nurture is a much important process.

    Hello bbhope!

    I do read these emails whenever I get time and think of you all so often. This journey is so close to me and I am always here cheering for you all! I'm sorry I don't reply - things get a bit hectic.

    I do understand what you are saying with regards to doubting your donor selection. I think that is a big concern for all of us. I worried about that when I was pregnant. I can assure you that is a thought I have not had once since bubba was born. We did use sperm from America and had 6 to choose from. Even then we didn't find everything we were looking for initially. Regardless of this I truly believe our daughter was meant to be and her donor was meant for us. I hope that helps you a little!

    Thinking of you all xxx

    @bbhope I guess finding a DS that will match closely is always going to be hard with Australian DS. Are you able to use DS in other states where they get sperm from overseas?

    I was wondering if anyone has considered FNA mapping? I have been thinking about this recently and was wondering if you get the mapping done do you then give the results to the specialist in Australia who will do the mTESE to tell them where the sperm is? I also read on the website that liklihood of finding sperm increases each time you do a biopsy. I thought that was interesting.

    @Malak: the clinic which I am with supposes to have US donors so you could imagine how disappointed we were to find out after months of waitng and worse when there wasn't a single donor with matched physical characteristics at all on the list. Yes, we are presented a huge list but it is the quality not the quantity that matter. For the Oz donors, they just update the list whenever there is one. And we learn that if there is any healthy one, he is gone within hrs. There is no time to process all the information!! We feel like we are just being presented one profile at a time. It is take it or leave it. There is no few to compare which makes the entire process hard if you know what i mean. The team has been very nice to us so I have nothing against them. I just wish we could have choices for once -- it is so darn hard enough for being on this journey without a choice.

    I posted on the donor sperms thread few days ago. I have been calling around clinics in VIC and QLD and even the US sperm bank directly. The problem is that the clinics here in Oz are so secret about their donor list. The best lead I've is in Gold Coast. The clinic which @Femmefatal recommended me in VIC is very good except police check and child protection stuff sort of put us off as we really want to get on the process as quickly as possible. Unfortunately, the gold coast clinic wasn't willing to reveal more about their donor list other than saying few donors match our physical characteristics. It is a huge gamble. Dr appt, counsellings (they are the only clinic which doesn't allow us to transfer our counselling sessions!), and then see the list. There is no guarantee that we will find what we like other than the physical characteristics. If we are lucky to find a donor, the counselor will want us to make a special trip out there meeting face-to-face before commencing the cycle. To make things a bit complicated, there is no direct flight from perth to gold coast. DH isn't keen to do that and he is in fact willing to wait it out for another 6 months to find a good match. It is me so wanting to move on and who knows how many cycles I need to get that BFP. Touch wood! So we can continue wasting time for that perfect match to come along or take a donor who is close enough.

    Well, after the whole weekend to rethink many times about it. DH has convinced me that we have made the right choice. It is exactly a year ago that DH did the mTESE so maybe it is the sign that it is meant to be.
