Thank you so much for this @BlondeinBrisvegas! All makes sense to me except the 100mg aspirin that I only did during stim + after transfer.
Were you doing aspirin even between your cycles?

@BlondeinBrisvegas, spot on! My clinic thinks embies are better off in their natural environment, and having only 2 or 3, I admit I'd rather have them put back inside me although it's more a mental thing I reckon.
I think they do it for the psychological factor as well - nothing worse than going through the entire stim and EPU and have nothing to transfer! Been there at my first cycle and that was a tough one.
I'm ok with that because cost-wise, it doesn't change a thing so I might as well give it a go. I'm with Primary IVF in Sydney, bulk bill clinic.
Also FS I think said that the test might damage the embryo which put me off the idea completely. But I'll ask again about it, can't remember the convo well.

Oh Luv, I'm so sorry to hear your Cycle was a BFN It's a real kick in the guts and it hurts your heart every bloody time whether you're expecting it or not
The Embryologists can only grade your eggs on their maturity based on their appearance under the microscope Luv. They can't tell just from looking at them whether the eggs are chromosomally normal or not.
This pdf link explains it:
Unfortunately as we get older (from late 30's onwards but most notable from 40 pluis), a good proportion of our eggs are going to be chromosomally abnormal anyway even if they are mature enough to be used when collected at EPU. That's just the reality of what happens biologically to egg quality as we get older.
For some women, it happens to their ovaries/eggs quality a lot younger and there's not a lot you can do about it either
That's why some people go down the PGD path if they have the embryo numbers, embryo quality and the $. So they know the embryo's are chromosomally normal. Grading's don't tell you that either though to be fair, your chances of getting a BFFP would be higher with a higher grade embryo.
In saying that, all 3 of my embryo's that were transferred on my successful Cycle were graded Average/Above Average...so nowhere near "top drawer".

As I say, one of the Lovelies who have had their embies PGD'd will be able clarify further

Which is the problem with low cost clinics...they often won't implement a more in depth protocol as they're there to obviously cut costs and save money which is understandable
P.S...Yep...I took everything on that list..including the aspirin...for the whole time between Cycles 4 and 5.
