yes that's what we're doing although we have a known issue were testing for- balanced chromosome translocation
I've done 3 stim cycles at WFC with a month off in between to bank the embryos then we'll defrosting & test them all in a couple of weeks time.
Haven't experienced the PGD testing side of things yet, we had a appointment with Viafit (the PGD lab) to sign the consent form between the stim cycles, it wasn't particularly useful & didn't tell us anything we didn't already know
Was a bit intense/annoying doing the 3 stim cycles (Jan, mar & may 2016) but hopefully it pays off by getting us a good number to send for testing
Sorry WFC didn't offer pgd while I was there, that is one of the reasons I changed clinics.
I've seen Dr Bradbury, Dr Smith and Dr Fong at some stage and couldn't fault any of them. I suspect Dr Smith would be hard to get into though
Dr Smith was the only doctor I saw at Westmead when I did my IVF
He joked that my only egg looked so good it could bring me quads !
I ended up with identical twins !
I've only seen Dr Fong who was able to get me pregnant first go with all my hormones all over the place after stimming . She was thorough in all her explanations and made me and hubby feel comfortable from day one ...
I only met Dr Smith on transfer day as he was in charge of the transfer and boy was he a nice man . Chatting away to my hubby in the transfer room about the day 5 blast they transferred and making hubby feel he was part of the transfer too .
Hi everyone, so my first cycle went well.
We had 14 eggs and 6 embryos out of them. One transferred on day 5 and pregnancy test is positive. Good news!
I am now trying to figure out what is next? Should we talk to the nurse again or go to the GP so they can take it from here.
Call the nurse she will bring you in for a pregnancy test !
And congrats !
