I agree at our age its about seeing the best fs you can to get you over the line.
@skye76 I agree with the others. It sounds like you've done just about all you can and the PGD is all that's left. I've never had PGD done and that's probably why I've transferred 17 embies and still trying. Frankly I never thought I'd need to with the donor eggs, yet here I still am !
@skye76 I agree with the others too. I haven't gotten to the PGD testing yet, but have thought about it. I've currently got one 5 day emby on ice, and my clinic doesn't offer the testing. I guess our next step would be to think about that too. You will get plenty of great advice here from the ladies, and lots of support 😊
So my FS only gave me enough antibiotics for a short period - 20x500mg cephalexin. He didn't really give me any instruction on when to use, probably because he thinks it's not needed anyway, and the box says every 6 hours so not even 4 days worth. For those of you who've taken antibiotics, when should I start it do you think, and how many. I know Chiefs only took two a day but she was also on another one prior to that so I don't know..... Maybe I need to try getting more from my gp? Or just a few days before FET and just until these ones run out?
@skye76 Just wanted to say welcome to the thread Luv Totally agree with the other Lovelies advice about doing PGD. You need 2 things for a healthy pregnancy to occur..a chromosomally normal embryo and the right environment to put it into.
You've made sure the environment (i.e your oven) is as right as it can possibly be through all the testing, Lap etc, now you need to make sure the embryo is healthy if you can. The only issue is getting them to Day 5 and the embryo(s) then being suitable to be biopsied.
I know PGD/PGS testing can be done on Day 3 embryo's but my understanding is it's more risky to the embryo to do it on Day 3 rather than on Day 5. Maybe something to discuss with your FS?? As the other Girls have pointed out, it would be better to know that any embryo's your transfer are chromosomally normal from the start instead of always having to transfer "blind" and hope for the best like we did.
Anyhoo Luv...I hope you get your sticky BFP asap!!!
