I too have poor quality eggs although my FSH is around 7. Other than that, we have no known problems. I have been trying to find a good TCM Dr. for a whil...

Any success stories with a single blast?

I am on my 3rd IVF cycle now after 2 failed IVF and 3 failed IUI cycles. We did PGD this time to eliminate abnormalities although I have no known issues other than my age factor (35). Out of 8 eggs, 6 were PGDd and only 1 was found normal. Transferred it on day 5; now on 2ww. Has anybody had any suc...

Tony, I totally understand your situation. My dh and I have been ttc for 2.5 years with no success, ever after 2 IVFs. Did every possible test and most came out fine, but... just to eliminate any chromosome abnormalities, we did a blood karyotype test and mine came back with some minor(?) abnormalit...

Girls, can I also join you? I am to start my 3rd fresh cycle in January (can't believe I am on my 3rd cycle, I thought I would get lucky within 2 cycles :( ) No issues with me or DH (well, I have my left tube partially blocked). We don't know if there are any blood/egg/sperm chromosome abnormality i...

cornybaby, I go to Coastal Fertility. They have an inhouse lab, some times I use Quest Diagnostics also. FISH (fluorescent in situ hybridization) test is done on sperm to rule out any chromosome abnormality in sperm. Not sure if there is another name for this test. Looks like it is not done in most ...

FISH Test on sperm

Has anybody got a sperm FISH Test done? My doctor's office ordered this test for us, but the lab they suggested will not do it until mid January next year due to their schedule. I searched for other labs, but couldn't find any. I live in Orange County, CA. We are due to start our 3rd IVF cycle in Ja...

Michele, Thank you for your kind words. Your situation sounds very similar to mine. My RE has suggested a new protocol for my 3rd attempt where he will use lupron only 3 days and then he will use another medicine to prevent ovulation. Hopefully, I will produce more quality/quantity eggs then. I am a...

BFN for me :( Cried my heart out... Worst part is that I had some bleeding in the early part of 2ww, so I had a little bit of hope this time. May be it wasn't my time. My thoughts are with all BFNers; hang in there... our time will come. Will see you in a future thread if you decide to continue this...

Implantation bleeding

Thought I will post this on this forum also for some help. I had ET on Nov 12th. 4 days later, I had some bleeding(more than just spotting), red in color, happened once that day and that was it. I had some minor cramping after that but no bleeding. I hoped it was implantation bleeding. Today, 9dp3dt...
