    That's awesome! Hope it goes well

    Leshoja Congratulations!!

    Good Luck Petal 40! And Faith

    MCG Bertie Sorry to hear about your update. Yes this ivf business is just so unfair , specially for some, even we recently had 2 failures with 2 PGD tested normal embryos and no implantation issues.after a long infertility battle ( earlier with mivf). And apparently these 2 cycles with one of the best doctors in Aus... Lynn burmeister .. And we have absolutely no answers..what else to try, earlier we were always given the reason that u miscarry due to chromosomal abnormalities and all, but now??? I guess u can go and try till the last resort , still luck is the major factor. But u still need to keep trying.. Now we are so confused as to try PGD or not, I mean is all worth it? All I want to say is, please take your time to recoup, I am also in the same boat.. But we again need to be strong and get up to fulfill our dream...

    Just read a paper about the pgd being not improving of pg rates and unnecessary complications. Sucks because I am halfway through pgd banking. Just look for systematic review on cgh on google scholar. I can post it later if anyone is interested

I figured you must have been referring to a recent study though. Anyhoo, will check it out.

    ya, I think for me it's essentially diagnostic more than anything since my uterine fibroids have muddied the waters somewhat. If they all came back reasonable looking I suppose I'd persist with my own eggs at a low cost clinic maybe. I'm thinking that's unlikely though. If they all did turn out rubbish, then we know we were essentially flogging a dead horse. Gah, not sure whether to just biopsy them all now or do another cycle.

    Every single step in ivf seems to be a toss of a coin, doesn't it!? I wish I had a crystal ball. One that works...

    Yeah, the longer I do IVF the more I think it's a game of chance (or maybe fate) rather than skill.

    Yes, I agree. I've had 8 transfers and at least another 7 blastocysts that didn't make the grade to be frozen so were chucked away and yet I had one BFP that made it all the way. If my blasties had been tested and shown to be bad, as they were, I think I would have given up. But there was a good one eventually (a measly grade 2 fragmented blast at that)
