    No haven't ever used this high calcium medium. They had to ask for special permission to us it for us and we were granted. They say it is usually used when fertilities rates are usually less than 25% on a normal cycle so you can't just get it off the bat. Also it is used when the sperm is in question... Is what FS said...

    Ok so the nurse just called, my oestrogen level is going up nicely so I'm starting the cetrotide tomorrow which is the drug that prevents ovulation, then I've got a BT and ultrasound on Saturday morning.

    Hey Precious.... Hope all is well with you... Did you take a couple of months off?

    With regards to the medium from my understanding they have put a higher concentration of calcium in the medium that the egg sits in after collection... I think I remember them saying something like 25 to 30% higher or something like that not sure...

    Now when I spoke to FS about it on collection day before going in, she mentioned that it is usually used when there are sperm issues... Low motility and it's suppose to help with the sperm fertilising the egg I gather...even with icis

    But when I spoke to the embryologist with my last cycle in March/April she gave me the indication that it was also for egg quality as well and for fertilization... So not sure exactly what it's all about but there some articles out there that have a whole bunch of scientific mumbo jumbo that says more calcium = higher fertility rates...

    Now from my understanding not all clinics have this medium... But it might be worth a conversation with your FS or scientist...

    Now Genea wouldn't allow it to be used first time around... I know your a long time ivfer so it maybe the thing that helps you get your bub... Worth a conversation I think...hope that helps some.
