    Welcome @greenlady sorry that your results came back abnormal. I only did the one round of pgd and all of my embies came back abnormal. I did 4 atom cycles to get 9 embies though, as I just didn't produce a lot of eggs. A couple were a grade looking, but on testing abnormal, it just goes to show, they can look good and be bad, so the opposite might hold true - they can look bad/ok but ultimately be good.
    @leyshoja aspirin thins the blood and clexane stops it clotting so do different things. The reason immune dr's put you on clexane is to help the blood flow through the placenta to bub, as nk/immune issues can affect the placenta.

    Yes there is a risk if you cut yourself. It is only something you can decide whether you are comfortable taking it. I bleed everyday with my progesterone in oil injection, but it stops quickly. I know that's just a pin prick compared to a cut though. I just make sure I pay attention when cutting things!

    In regards to intralipids, dr m says to do 7-14 days before transfer, on bfp then every 4 weeks till 14 weeks. I'm doing them more regularly due to my bt results.

    As you aren't consulting with a reproductive immunogist and your fs doesn't believe in it, it's such a hard time for you trying to work out what to do. Go with your gut, that is the only thing I can suggest. That and ask yourself if you would have any what ifs, if it doesn't work will you say what if I had done this, done that? If I think I will say that then I always go with the treatment suggested. But that is me, and I was super tired of doing all the stims and getting nowhere.

    Good luck with your decisions xxx

    Thanks @Chiefsgirl - I actually AM booked in to see an immune specialist just after I get back from CT. I'll be going regardless of a BFP or a BFN result.

    I am surprised that your FS said that about your frozen embryo. If they've frozen it, it means they think its viable. They would have no idea if its good or not until they put it back in.
    I think its a good idea to go for another stim though and keep it a a back up. Having said that there is a lady on the egg donor forum I am on who had her son after he had been in storage for 3 years. The first few 'better' embryos didn't work and she decided to take a break.
    Completely agree @Green lady- anything we do at this age we need to do as quickly as possible. If you are going to do any more stims, do them now and keep the frostie as plan B.

    That is really good, it'll help make your decisions easier!

    You can shelve the intralipids question I guess then till you see them.

    I was thinking about the clexane, dr m prescribes 40mg per day, but I know some fs only prescribe 20mg. So maybe you could think about using the lower dose? And if you are super uncomfortable about it, do it every other day?

    Fwiw I dosed DH up with a 20mg injection prior to our flights to help with prevention of dvt's as he never moves on a flight! My boss got a dvt on a flight back from Spain last year and was put on clexane injections for 3 months while it rectified, and was told to take an injection now before every long haul flight he does as a preventative.

    Default IVF over 40 #16

    So went for BT this morning & have my results already. Super fast! A nice 3110, so numbers doubling roughly every 1 1/5 days. ☺️

    @Bongley yes I had some hope about the frozen one which was dashed by the FS saying it was probably no good. But then again on the morning of day 6 the embryologist/ scientist ( not sure of correct terminology) told me it couldn't be biopsied and I then asked if it coukd be frozen and she said ' I will get one of the other scientists to look at it and see what they think'. She then rang me back an hour later and said it was suitable to freeze - does the fact she had to get a second opinion mean it looked dodgy? I just don't know.

    Next cycle I am actually going to ask that I be given no information about the embryos or any of their technical problems - because they can't give you any clear explanations just information that tortures you. I had 3. X 8 cell on day 3 which I thought was good but evidently it wasn't in my case. for example for my one emby biopsy they told me the cells were hard to pull off - I asked if that was bad and the answer was 'not necessarily'. I mean why even tell me that if you don't know what it means ? That just removed all hope that I had in the 4 week wait for the result. I think everyone needs to be left with a little hope in IVF to keep going - I know success stats are not good for over 40s but it's a bit of hope that keeps you going.

    Thanks@chiefsgirl for your comments. It's really good to get other experiences - from people on the receiving end and not just your FS.

    Yeah, I figure there is no point torturing myself with the grading for example, I've never asked for details. Mind you, I've never had a choice of which one to put back as there was only ever one contender left. All I know is my clinic has said that it has to be expanding by day 6 or it doesn't get frozen.

    Hi Girls....Sorry, just a quick one as I am in the middle of cooking cakes and shiz for dd's b'day party tomorrow.

    Just wanted to say "Welcome" to @Green lady , give a to @Petal 40...that's great to see Luv and must be a relief for you plus ask @leyshoja if she can go to her GP for a clexane script??? I was on 30mg's on Cycle 4 and 40 mg's on Cycle 5 but agree with @Chiefsgirl's suggestion

    Hello to all the other Lovelies as well.........
