    @Summer yes awake for both. Twilight sedation was local anesthetic and fentanyl. Awake but drug sleepy. My epu for today was gas and valium although i sneak in an endone as well. Awake and drug haze. Only uncomfortable really and over in 2mins per egg.

    You are so brave, I don't think I could do it, I might have to change FS again to find one who does EPU under GA, damn it :-(
    @Bongley I'm a real sook so would want to be knocked out for anything - I don't think I could do EPU awake, I am in pain with a Pap smear, so can't imagine what happens in EPU...

    @Summer I would just talk to your FS and tell them how you feel, I too have only ever had the twilight sedation and just tell them you're in pain if it comes to that, which it has only once when they were finding it hard to get to one of my ovaries. Otherwise its just a nice haze and you don't really remember a lot after it. Kind of awake but like you're half asleep.

    Hi Girls, Im having a melt down and love your opinion. Do you think its just a numbers game at our age? Im so confused and challenged by it all...Im running out of money and looking at Bulk Bill or low cost clinics. Theres one 2hrs away from me or a flight to Sydney (I can stay with my mum there).

    We have frozen sperm (extracted by TESE as hubby has had a vasectomy).

    High NK cells and doing intralips (steroids and clexane) - need to do prior to transfer and then after (I think).

    PDG/CGH - is it worth it if I only get one possible embie on Day 5, so either fresh transfer or maybe wait til Day 6 when it can be tested or frozen or it dies??
    Cant get PDG at Bulk Bill so can probably only afford this once or maybe twice.

    I was thinking paying for one more expensive cycle now at Genea as the sperm is there and I don't want to waste more time (have had two months off as lost the plot) and could try for PDG on whatever makes it to Day 5...but could be tempted to wait one more month and try Bulk Bill up here with fresh TESE sperm; or Bulk Bill in Sydney with frozen sperm...

    I feel like my body suffers and don't do well on the fresh transfers but Doctor always thinks I should transfer (and sometimes don't have the choice do we!).

    I know several ladies on here (and one friend) got a BFB after transferring earlier than Day 5 but many FSs don't do this. Can I demand it? I just want to try it.

    can you transfer fresh on Day 3 and grow the others out to Day 5/6 and freeze?

    Am I crazy, I guess I'm hunting for the magic day when I get a perfect healthy babe. Thanks for listening/reading X

    @ange1111 Im not sure how many cycles you've done and your age but I used to think it was a numbers game and that eventually i would get there, however now Im not sure. Perhaps if you had unlimited money and emotional will to keep on going and going maybe it would eventually work but most of us get to the point that we need to move on in some way, whether donor eggs or decide to give up all together.
    Ive done a lot of cycles but like you I only get 1 embryo mostly, a couple of times 2 so the numbers game isn't very easy on us. If you were getting 3 or more embryos per stim cycle then maybe the chances would be better. The advice from my FS about PGD is that she wouldnt touch our embryos as theres simply not enough and you might as well transfer when theres only 1. She works at Genea but I guess its only 1 opinion.

    i know what you mean about being frustrated about not transferring any earlier than day 5 and if you've only got a couple on the go then why not just put them in earlier. I know that my FS and clinic only do single transfers so they will always hold out to day 5 unless you have 1 in which case you get a day 3. I don't know if it makes any difference, as they would all be doing earlier transfers if the stats were there. But I think we just want to try something different to see if it helps. They also don't do double transfers as they don't see multiple pregnancies as a good outcome, its a high risk pregnancy that they try and avoid.

    This is our last cycle with my eggs and then we are moving on to donor eggs. I cant see the point in flogging a dead horse, Im 42 and we had to draw the line somewhere. Everyone's line is different (and the line can move) but Ive been doing IVF now since 2012 and frankly I just want a baby.

    I don't know if thats helps? You could try and freeze your embryos from a stim and then get them to do a FET even without testing it, would that be satisfying that question in your mind?

    @Summer yeah I'd speak to your FS and if they weren't willing to help you then try somewhere else. The first time I did it I was brave but then after that I just knew it wasn't going to hurt and I liked hearing the numbers come in as they got the eggs
    @ange1111 well, I think it IS a numbers game but it's not JUST a numbers game unfortunately. If you're getting one embryo on day 5 then I don't know if PGD is worth the extra cost, do the embryos usually look good? By putting it back you would have found out in a couple of weeks if it had worked anyway. My embryos always looked very shoddy by day 5 so I knew it was probably an egg problem rather than implantation. I only ever had one day 5 embryo per cycle after a usually good haul of 8 to 10 eggs.

    If you run out of money could you do the NK treatment alongside a bulk billed place?

    I went to a public clinic (RPA) and Genea and the difference was NK cells and intralipids treatment, that was about it.

    Have you thought of using the last of your cash for a donor egg cycle? sorry if that's upsetting to suggest
