    @Sue77 ive been thinking again... i think that maybe there may be some issue that medicine and science just isnt developed enough yet to identify or diagnose. Perhaps there is no way, yet, of knowing what the issue is and even if you did all the protocols and eveything they do try, it might not address the issue. Sometimes i try to think of my previous cycles as one big expensive experiment to help diagnose that something is not right, even if it didnt identify exactly what it was that was going wrong. I dont think the fs drs will ever be able to tell me if all of my eggs are definately 'defective' or if and when more oe cycles would have worked. The unknown factors really make it hard to make rational decisions. I do think that if you do try to use reasoning and rational decision making (over emotions), it would make sense to choose the option that is most likely to work (not that thats an easy thing to do but it would be rational). And thank you, for helping me too. Ukraine surrogacy is now an option i didnt know about so your post and @ECM1981 posts have given me options and choices too. xox

    You getting excited?!!!!

    @Lastchance75 just out of curiosity, did you tend to get about 50/50 boy girl ratio with the embies from the cycle?

    As Lleyton hewitt would say: C'mon!
    Go little tuxcat's go! (I know it's DE but they are tuxcat's follies... all 15 of them!)
    @gorgeousgeorge do you get any hint of how it's going with your DE cycle?

    Yeah, if it was anything, it would be that the problem was with that x chromosome i think and therefore a problem with xx embryos being homozygous, not so much your ability to carry them as such, i reckon.
