I think in some instances they can be put down to chromosomal issues @pingc383 is was from my BO we started doing the pgd testing. The chromosomal issue in my case was probably just located in the inner cell mass (which makes the baby) so it failed to develop. My body or the sac failed to identity the issue though so continued to grow. There may be other reasons also.
I got your PM about your clinic and they were the first clinic I was with and I hated them! I too felt exactly the same way as you do and that they refused to do 5 day transfers.
I headed to our new clinic IVFA and they have been fantastic. They do 5 day transfers, high magnification of DH sperm, and if I hadn't gone there I probably wouldn't know I have an egg issue and am now going down the donor path.
when I was at your current clinic I felt that they didn't listen and they just poo pooed everything I said.
i think everyone's experiences are unique to each clinic. Good luck with your next round xx
@jeb8303 no offense but any clinic would seem better then fertility first as they are a low cost clinic. Yes every clinic is different and some may be better than others for certain people.
We did 2 fresh & 1 frozen there. Yes she does have a bit of a mean streak. It was actually out of our way to go there and I was always angry that they wouldn't do a 5 day transfer.
good on you looking at changing clinics. I've heard good things about Genea. IVFA is the best for us as they are the easiest (next suburb over from my work) and hey also do digital high magnification of DH sperm which is important as they have motility and morphology issues).
Unfortunately they're not allowed to transfer more than 2 due to the laws set down by the Government.
When I was with FF they were not that as cheap as they are now and I didn't pick them as they were low cost. Maybe now they've turned into a low cost clinic. Although compared to my approx $13k plus $3k for frozen for this donor cycle they seem massively low cost..
Best of luck and I hope your emby's keep growing. xx
Yes they have unfortunately PCOS appearing ovaries and we have tried different protocols and same result (poor quality embryos). You'd be surprised the number of women under 40 who need donor eggs (one of my friends went through 13 rounds with her own and had her beautiful little boy in May with a DE and has 5 still frozen). I have a lot of egg reserve but sadly they are not good quality I blame being on the pill for 10 years.
My gorgeous cousin (29 who has 4 of her own kids) is due to get her period on Sunday so starting her meds as early as next week.. I'm more nervous and oversensitive than for any of my own cycles
Ive always gotten insane amounts (15-16 except last cycle we changed protocol I had what appeared to be 20+ follies and did a freeze all for suspected OHSS but only 8 eggs but first ever A grade but was unsuccessful)
No we will freeze after her cycle and then do a frozen transfer towards the end of the year. Both of us would have had to be on the pill to coordinate our cycles and she actually has reactions to the pill... They'll just stim her as per a normal cycle and her trigger will be like the one they give when you have suspected OHSS (your period comes after about 5 days) and at EPU they'll do ICSI and then it's cross fingers and hope they are fantastic quality to pass the freeze test
