    I had stem cells taken while I was going through chemo. In my case it was to hold onto incase the cancer came back & then they would transfer it back it me. I'm not sure why they do it for ivf though. But basically what they do is hook you up to a machine that drains your blood & it goes through a machine that spins the blood & takes the stem cells out & then the blood is put back into your body. It's a long procedure depending on what count they get. Mine took two days which I was very lucky as they say usually 3 to 4 days. But of course this is for cancer & I'm sure ivf is different. I hope this helps.

    Yes I am cancer free & very lucky to be expecting a baby. I lost one due to the cancer & I wasn't given a high chance of being able to have another after going through chemo but I have been blessed.
