@mrsparso I'm doing ok today thank, struggling to eat but at least it has stayed down. I hope you can rest up and all will be fine for you xxxx thinking of you xx
@newbeginnings284 I know how you feel it's so disheartening. I was on 300 gonal f and managed to get 6 eggs collected 1 frozen and the one transfered was bfp. As all these lovely ladies explained to me it only takes 1 golden egg xxx
@newbeginnings284 - Great news on your egg collection hun. I think Warren tells you to have intercourse incase he misses an egg, it gives you the extra chance of pregnancy. He usually tells you also to either have intercourse after egg collection or use other methods to get the sperm inside. My clinic used to say to abstain also but Warren thinks slightly differently that most he takes the risk. Don't be too disheartened with 6 eggs hun, @Rosie888 is right all we need is one golden egg. Yes hun I was there this morning I would have seen you its strange speaking on here isnt it and not knowing who is who in Warren's room.
@Rosie8888 - You sound like you are really suffering with the sickness hun hope it improves soon x

LittleDove the results take a few weeks, although one time we got them back in less than a fortnight - maybe just over a week, but they say three weeks I think.
We did 3-day PGD one time due to pickup day. It is a lot more expensive. If I remember correctly it was about $3,000 even if only 1 embryo (compared to $700 for 5-day PGD per embryo). With 3 day they also only extract one cell and it is less accurate - with 5-day they take a few cells from what will become the placenta. A few times I've talked to the PGD scientists and they are good at explaining it all.
Good luck with your cycle.
@newbeginnngs284 definitely don't use protection. As the others have said DTD is in case an egg is missed, but also the more often you DTD the higher your fertility will be. Sperm has protein which helps prepare the uterus and I think also helps with eggs maturing. My DH investigated this when we were cycling and he and Wazza had great chats about it . Ask the nurses for some specimen jars and syringes if you're not up to it.
Good luck with EPU.
