Good luck for EPU, Winsor
Great fert rate skyler
Skyler yes I think dr gee is a great doctor, I feel very comfortable she has tried everything she can for me.
Sorry, not sure how that happened 😝
Welcome new ladies!
I'll chime in on the pgd discussion. I am doing embryo banking with ivf Australia now to do this. They do both day 3 and day 5 testing. We are going with day 3. Everything so far has been frozen day 3. This current cycle will be frozen to add to the rest. Then with the next cycle they will thaw them out biopsy all of them including the new ones. Everything will grow to day 5 when the results will be back and hopefully we'll have one possibly two normals! Cost is $3800 with no min/max. For me it's all about knowing what we're putting back in. At our age we have to face the reality we might not have any normals, and wd be going through all that heart ache putting back embryo after embryo that didn't have a chance. I guess for me it's my way of ticking off my list of things that cd be wrong. Eg. If the embryo's are normal and it doesn't work then it must be my immune issues etc
@Skyler that's a fantastic fert rate!
Thank god for these forums, I get so much more information from these compared to my FS, I really like my doctor but I guess they only tell you what they think you need to know! I didn't know you test the embryo's, I thought they had to be sent to America for that.
Its great isnt it Missda its also gets you thinking bout other things to ask for etc.
Chiefsgirl - so how long has the process been so far? 3 full months worth of cycles? And how many eggs will you have to test by the end? My Amh is not far from yours so im lucky to get 2 decent eggs. Im undecided if its worth going through that long process or just put the one or two back and hope for the best. Either way I still have to go through each cycle as normal and ok you dont have the disappointment in between when it doesnt work but im not sure I can wait that long for all the testing. I can see the benefits in it, I guess im just impatient. On the other hand if an egg in your first batch was good you wouldnt have to keep doing cycles for nothing.
How is everyone else going today?
