    Ladies, I know I'm getting waaaay ahead of myself here but I was just playing out a few scenarios in my head and was wondering.....let's say I get my BFP this cycle and have a few frosties left over.....if I have another m/c do you think I'd still be able to choose to do PGD testing for my follow up FET embryo??

    Hi gals thought I'd come over here, all my Sept buddies are here and lovely to meet all you October ladies. May it be a POSITIVE month for us.

    This thread is huge considering its only 2nd Oct.

    I have read most of the posts and hope you are all travelling well so far in your cycles.

    For those of you that don't know me, I'm 36, low AMH and have servere endo. Have been TTC on and off for the last 3 years and only found out all my fertility issues this year after lap surgery to confirm endo. This is my 2nd IVF cycle, first one being cancelled due to no viable embryos for transfer. I am currently PUPO and had 1 excellent 3 day embie transferred last Sunday so am nearly in the middle of my 2ww and so far so good.
    @jaybu84
    @Bongley hope you are ok today xx sounds rough
    @babygirl7 I have some experience with Hydrosalpinx, I have it in my right tube and had to get my tube clipped before starting my IVF treatment, it is caused in my case by endo but it can get due to infections or other reasons. They do not resolve themselves. I would have a conversation with your FS about this. you will be positive this cycle, moving forward though, it is something you need to address as it interferes with implantation. Your nurse may say not to worry about it and at this stage of the cycle there is nothing you can do but what does your FS say? if your FS says not to worry about it I'd get a 2nd opinion.

    @KayzB not long now xx

    @Ladydee you certainly have a few to spare lucky lady. I am unsure at what stage you have to choose this? chat to your FS and probably there are ladies on this thread who know more about it than I do. I was looking at it on the umm .. price list and I see that there is no rebate for it. I think my clinic thinks there should be 10 frosties before it makes it worth doing. Then I could be wrong - an area yet to be explored.

    @jeb8303 that is rubbish that they are making you wait for progesterone and other hormones besides HCG testing, if you test tomorrow will you even get results tomorrow or on Monday? I had similar concerns this week with heavy spotting and they faxed a referral to my nearest pathology lab (though yours sound like it is your actual fertility centre) and told me to get tested straight away. Tests came back clear but they did not give me any 'oh its normal' spiel and my spotting was not even red. They took it very seriously and acted quickly. I guess it's too late in the day but often if the nurses fob you off ask to speak to your FS direct.

    @jeb8303 sorry to hear things are not looking good. I hope you get some answers soon.
    @jaybu84 hope the blood test went well
    @Gelati glad the jabbing is getting slightly easier

    Welcome @Ladydee and @straycat.
    @Ladydee I am also having a transfer this Saturday. I have had 2 m/c after my previous 2 FET’s. We did speak to our FS about doing PGD on the remaining one. He didn’t advise it but it could have been done, but not worth our while to only get one tested (at our clinic I think it was about $3000 whether you were testing one or 8) and it has to be thawed, cells taken, frozen again and then thawed for transfer. There aren’t a lot of statistics on success rates. We thought it was too much of a risk and have decided to go ahead and see what happens. If we have to cycle again, we will probably do PGD on the next cycle.
    @KayzB good luck for tomorrow Hun. I hope your hunch is wrong.

    @Ladydee
    This is my first time on this thread. By the time I got here it seemed a little long and intimidating but I thought I should reply to your question.
    My first beta for this cycle is on Saturday. My history in regard to ivf/eggs/PGD/ numbers is in my signature.

    Basically, I have been ttc my second baby with ivf/pgd since the first baby was 6 months "just in case it took a while".. It has. My son is now 15 months. This year I've had an FET>missed miscarriage, fresh IVF/PGD>chemical, then I've just done two more fresh cycles of ivf to get enough for another PGD test. I wanted 5 minimum. The first batch from July was frozen with only 4 left in day 3, the second had 7 survived to test day and the first 4 thawed successfully. I had one good from each batch, transferred the fresh as it was higher quality. My clinic does PGD testing in house, allowing for fresh transfers.

    So I think the answer to your question is yes you should be able to ask for PGD on any left overs. While the nurse wasn't keen on the idea of refreezing after thawing, my Dr and the scientists were recommending it as they wanted to transfer the best. If you wanted to NOT thaw/pgd/refreeze/FET, then at my clinic you need to go on birth control to schedule the test foot the right time. Assuming your clinic tests in house, this may be an option.

    It is not covered by Medicare or private insurance. As I had PGD to test for a translocation, it was one cost regardless of number of embryos tested. Other pgd at my clinic (Mivf) I pay a base cost for a number then an extra amount for extra embryos. Your clinic may be different. If not doing PGD for a known issue, I would justify doing it by saying the cost was about the same as an FET for me. But I've saved myself from several failed FETs in the process.

    Good luck with your super batch! Hope they pick the best first time for transfer.

    Well ladies, results are in...

    Confirmed BFP!!!!😆😆😆 my HCG is 315 which they are really happy with and it seems my body might finally be doing it's job and my other levels are great as well - no more crinone for this little puppy!

    I'm so excited, and my mum has already taken me shopping for maternity clothing (that I obviously don't need yet!) She really can't help herself haha it's hilarious. First grandchild so she's crazy excited.

    OMG!!!

    Thanks @straycay

    Ooo yay @Emerald26! I love cycle buddies....specially 2ww buddies So that's you, me, @MissBell......is there anyone else doing a transfer over the next couple of days??
    @Emerald26 - thank you very much for your reply and I'm very sorry for your losses I agree you've made the right choice.... if I had the one frosty, I really don't think I could risk it with the testing and the defrosting/re-freezing ect. Unless anything dramatic happens over the next two nights, I unbelievably look as if I might have quite a few left to freeze which has left me thinking! We were really thinking we'd be getting some hint of an answer to our losses but I guess the problem happens/shows itself later. I think it's about $3000 at my clinic too but I'm not sure if that's for one or several....I'll add that to the list of questions to ask. Two sleeps for us and then it's 'T' day! Fingers and toes crossed its a super lucky day for us both!! Are you getting acupuncture? My poor acupuncturist has to come in to see me at 6:45 am as I'm getting an early transfer at 7:45....I have paid him a small fortune over the last few months so that makes me feel a little less guilty Good luck! Xx

    Also just as an addition - if this kid sticks full term (which I really think it will!!) it's amazing! My cycle was terrible, and I ran to day 20 on my injections because nothing was happening. At the beginning I had one follicle that ended up being a cyst going crazy and then I bled as well. I honestly wrote it off.. When they did send me for retrieval I only harvested one egg.. Which was also disappointing. So I just wanted to share that because it shows that miracles do happen on this crazy ride! Xox
