I've only just joined so I don't think I have a signature going on with all my basic info/history - I need input from Australians, my usual forum is US based
We've been using a fertility clinic for two years with over a year of natural ttc prior. We've just had our third transfer with a negative result. We've had a large number of IUI and timed cycles before IVF (all neg) as well as a number of failed/cancelled cycles, loss of embryos in thaw etc. Two collections so far and looking to need a third later this year if things don't turn around. I'm 30 so yes, "young".
I feel we need to move beyond SET (single embryo transfer) and onto double. I'm not saying this from a place of "hurry up and get pregnant, I want twins anyway" but a financial one as well as acknowledging my egg quality is sh!t thanks to pcos and extremely high AMH. Let me reiterate this - this is not an uneducated, can't we just throw more embryos in there and take the risk type desire. I've done a crap-ton of research. It's knowing that the liklihood of two of MY embryos taking is ridiculously low. Possible, yes. But realistically it would be miraculous given the dozens of follicles we've managed to stim over the past two years have never eventuated in a single positive beta. eg.Our 2nd IVF cycle collected 24 eggs, 4 made to blast, only two to transfer.
So. I need to argue this with my Dr obviously and have an appt in two weeks. I know the guidelines say no more than two and that's fine with me, I'm not crazy.
Has anyone successfully requested a move from SET to DET? Did you meet a ton of resistance?
