Fragmentation is not the end of the world. I corresponded with a few women when I only had one 3 cell day 3 embryo to transfer out of 5 eggs. One commented, she transferred a fragmented 3 cell day 3 embryo who was currently playing in the next room. My 3 cell was picture perfect but had no result. This is a far from a perfect science. Hang in there Brooke, you have 3 embryos which is great. You might also consider transferring one of your six cells and the singleton left from your last cycle together. That way you are giving yourself and your current embryos your best shot.
Please don't feel bad about a "poor me" post, it sounds like a tough pick-up experience and you definitely need to get some support at those times.
Re the flare antagonist. It is like a normal antagonist cycle which is basically orgalutran, gonal, ovidrel. With a flare cycle, they prime the oestrogen response first with synarel or something similar. I took synarel for 3 days to prime, then started the gonal as well. The synarel was continued as ovulation prevention instead of orgalutran and then ovidrel as the trigger. I went from 2 follies on a normal antagonist cycle to 5 follies with the flare cycle. It is complicated by the fact that I'd been taking DHEA for 6 months by the time I tried the flare cycle and had, had a couple of months off so I have no idea what impact those things might have had.

Unfortunately they will not let me transfer more than 1 embryo as this is only my 2nd attempt, and they have to be day 5 or 6 blasts, no early transfers. I would love to be able to give them all a chance :-)
Seems silly that I Can't do what I want but there's not much I can do about it at this stage.
Hoping against hope that at least one holds on and grows for transfer on Wednesday. If not i will probably use my spare one and pray to the heavens :-)
I really like my clinic and its convenient to get to, but if this one fails I want to see what they suggest and might change.

Wow Brooke, your clinic is a bit harsh. early transfers are always indicated if embryos aren't doing well. At least it gives you a chance and sometimes embryos do better if put back in. It isn't unusual for an FS not to let you do what you want. One of the reasons I moved on from my last one. If only they took note of things like that. Well I have everything crossed for you! It definitely makes a difference if a clinic is convenient I think, one less thing to stress about.

For the girls at Fert North, do they give you your drugs at your IVF talk appt or do you have to back again at another date to collect? Im getting very confused. Some places say IVF is scheduled then you call back day 1 of your next cycle for your 21 day appt. Others seem to get drugs at the IVF talk appt and then get to start first day of next cycle. ill shoot someone If I have to wait yet another cycle to get drugs and another one after that to start!

Hi wishnhope, it's been such a long time, but when I did my first fresh cycle at Fert north, they gave you the drugs as u needed them. There were a couple of occasions of them not having them, but they always made a plan for us.

I had the dreaded BMI thing today. I have to get a medical form done for an overseas clinic and he has put me down as being contraindicated for being pregnant as I'm 45 and overweight. He spent a large part of the consult telling me I was almost certain to get pre-eclampsia and then said that women my age trying to get pregnant were playing russian roulette and the barrel went off more than we realised. Finally followed up by telling me some people should just accept things and take more holidays instead. And I get to pay for this! I now have to reprint the form and find a friendlier doctor and do it all again. A hell of a day.
