Nereid yes, please ask for a double transfer. At our age don't do anything less. I always did a double, apart from once when I thought I'd try something different.
is your clinic one that freezes at day 3?
Monash wont do this, they are only frozen at day 5. I think the chance of them fragmenting or slowing down in growth increase by day 4. So you may be transferring ones that never had a chance in the first place. I don't know how prevalent twins are from ivf at this age, but I would think the chances are low.
When I had my viability scan at my last ivf to check everything was alright with my pregnancy they did find 2 sacs. But one was empty. LB recommended I do double transfers from the get go due to age.
i would be moving through cycles quickly too. (Unless you need to have a break for physical or emotional reasons) Time is of the essence at this stage. My last 2 cycles were back to back.
Kelly as we had exhausted every possible drug and protocol we ended up just doing what we had done before on my last cycle. LB was starting to show some pessimism towards the end with me.
just to answer your questions I did 8 cycles with Lynn. I had a double transfer and 1 took. They were day 5. No pgd as I only had two left on the 5th day and I got a call from the embryologist that morning to race over and have them inplanted. Otherwise yes it was going to be pgd again- not that I had any luck with it the first time. It's not for everyone.
i see your situation is different as your not getting the numbers at transfer. It sounds like LB still has some ideas for you. Sorry, did you do a down reg with her? I remember she told me that often down regs are better for older ladies.
