Zakmick I'm sorry to hear your results were a little disappointing. Will you do PGD? Do Monash do the PGD on day 3 or Day 5? I've read its not as damaging on a Blastocyst? How long did your Karyotype Tests take to come back?

Di if you feel like you get nothing from your FS don't hand around, it really takes an emotional toll on you if you cannot talk to your FS.

We are not with monash yet, we are still with city fertility. I made an apt with Lynn Burmeister for July at monash but I'm going to cancel it for now and revisit making an apt down the track if it's needed.
I haven't looked that far into the pgd about what day they do it on yet at monash or cfc will see how the next transfer goes and then maybe reconsider our options.
Our initial individual karotype tests took about a 3-4 wks and then the karotype completed on the product of conception was 5 wks. The tests are sent firstly to the pathology lab and to RCH so it can take awhile.
Di- have you had a full blood work up? There are standard tests completed for recurrent miscarriages/ unexplained infertility and one of the tests is a karotype test completed individually on both of you. The gp who I suggested will arrange for a lot of the blood tests for you- not sure about the karotype though that could be just a specialist test.
Afm: renovations all completed finally moved back into our newly renovated bedroom - only took 2.5 mths! Absolutely love it!! My new walk in pantry and robe are amazing too!! Booking in tomorrow for the arthroscope on my knee, would like it done over the school holidays so I can rest and be on the road to recovery before school starts back- so I can get back to work and earn some money for the next FET. Night x
Yay on getting the reno finished! sounds lovely. Hope the arthroscope goes well and rest up, hopefully you get a lot of work in term 3. Im currently waiting for my second last interview to come, my throat is sore and I'm sick of talking! Can't wait for tomorrow 2 pm!
Di it would be hard to be working with a FS that has no emotion or it's like pulling teeth to get anything out of them- as it's such an emotional journey. However your not with him for his personality your with him for his skill and expertise and as you said you know two women who have had success with him. X
Hope u dont mind me popping in. I've been off BH for a while, well i've been stalking a little but no postings.
Zakmick, i'm glad u were able to get some conclusive results from those tests you had, much better than not knowing why it happened. its horrible what you've been thru and I have been thinking about u a lot and hope u get your sticky bfp sooner rather than later.
di - i was with MIVF too and switched to Monash. I am quite anti-MIVF for personal reasons, i think they rush too quickly into ivf without fully investigating all the issues. If our FS at MIVF had bothered to investigate DH further he would have realised that the treatment he offered was never gonna work
Having said that I realised this when we still had two embies left, and i didnt want to abandon them so we went thru with our last fet at MIVF (only 1 ET as 1 didnt survive thaw). Anyway what i'm trying to say is, trust your gut instinct and dont worry about being loyal or owing anything to ur current FS. Put yourself first! I hope u get a bfp for your next fet and dont have to worry about changing FS!!
hehe i could easily rant on more about why i dont like MIVF. I just think Monash are more thorough with their investigations and they are genuinely interested in researching infertility and not just making money from vulnerable people. Now i'm in my 2nd trimester i will be writing to the directors of MIVF to give my full opinion on the treatment i received from them and it wont be pretty!
