Thanks @Btae and @newbeginnings284. I didn't realise he calculates it before he gives the go ahead. Ok that's great, I might raise it with his nurse, cos AF is due on a Monday or Tuesday in a few weeks.
Also, he only does PGD on an embryo that's been inseminated, right? Genea told me they can also do PGD on ivf embryos (not injected with icsi).. I always thought that they couldn't do that because a lot of sperm DNA touch the egg...
Sorry to hear you only got 2 x day 3 8 cell embies @gorgeousgeorge, but you're very much still in the game!!! How interesting to hear it may be DH's sperm.. Even though my DH had his sperm tested, I still end up with fragmented embies on day 3.. Sigh.. It's like there's no real conclusive test to tell us whether it's the egg or the sperm! Anyway, my ex FS only transferred 3 day embies and I can tell you right this minute that I have a very positive feeling, because all the girls who had between 8-10 mon fragmented embies got their BFP! So I hope the same happens for you hun!
GG sorry to hear about the dh sperm issue, I totally get the shocking feeling and disappointment. Looking at the positive, two great day 3 embies onboard which have great chances to be two + sticky beans, a caring and fantastic fs who is thinking ahead of the game, and a plan z if things don't work out. Is your dh on warren supplements to boost sperm quality? We face sperm quality issues as most of our embryos dropped from day 4 onwards but I am hoping with dh being on wazza supplements the quality has improved a little over time.
Relax and focus on the moment. Like you said before, you will deal with whatever hurdles that universe throws at you and I have no doubt you will bring home the bub you truly deserve in no time. Hugs dear.
@Btae - is your DH icing his balls? My DH will put cold water on them, but he won't ice them!
I never know if sperm issues are from days 1-3 or from days 4-5... I hear so many conflicting stories...
My DH has done all the sperm tests and he's clear... But ours are still fragmented on day 3 must definitely be my eggs
Did you get any of the bloods/etc results? I'm not having another consult as I'll be starting a cycle shortly.. Not sure if he gives the results out now or whether we go back for the "what do we do now" appointment if we get a bfn...
I'm curious to know if my DH is a cystic fibrosis carrier..
When are you cycling with him hun? We may be cycle buddies I'm starting around 19 Oct!
