I am seeking some advice on when to get a second opinion.
I am 29 years old and have been TTC for 2 1/2 years. I have PCOS and am active and healthy. My first egg pickup was May last year I had 18 eggs of which 4 were suitable to freeze (none of these embryos were tested). I couldn't do a fresh transfer because I was one of the unlucky 3% who got a mild case of OHSS which was extremely painful. All 4 were transferred all of which were unsuccessful.
In November I had a curette and laprascopy of which my ob couldn't find anything else going on however he did mention that I may have cervical stenosis as it took him 45 mins to get through my cervix.
Last week I had my 2nd egg collection. I was given an antagonist trigger to prevent OHSS and told that due to this all embryos will be frozen. Egg collection was successful with 10 eggs collected and no OHSS symptoms. 8 of the 10 fertilised. This time around I was having my embryos tested (PGD) however only 1 was fit to be tested. This 1 turned out to be abnormal therefore it was not fit for a transfer. I had about 5 other embryos that were a bit slow. I have been told today that these slow embryos have not made it to blastocyst stage therefore I have no embryos from my transfer.
I am extremely upset at the thought of going through it all again. Has this happened to anyone before?
I am not unhappy with my ob and do feel that I am in good hands, however I am seeking advice on when to get a second opinion? Are all clinics the same?
I have also tried acupuncture and been to a naturopath but none of this has seemed to help.
