K and I decided that it's time to just get this over with. We've moved the beta to first thing tomorrow.
So, after that is done, we're making decision to move forward with the next transfer. Here are some of the questions she is contemplating. If you've got thoughts on any of these, please feel fee to comment. We're up for ideas/opinions.
1) We're trying to decide whether to do the next transfer here in my home city or fly me back to theirs. (It would be a fraction of the cost to do it at my clinic.) - Either way it's the same protocol for me. Estrogen all cycle to hold off ovulation and progesterone the week before transfer. The success rates at my clinic are a little less than at hers. BUT really all my clinic is doing is monitoring me and doing the transfer. Would you really worry about my clinic's numbers in that case? Placement of the embryo doesn't really affect success rates much does it? My clinic does ultrasound guided, hers doesn't if that makes a difference. Both clinics will do assisted hatching.
2) fresh or frozen cycle? Eggs are already frozen through vitrification. She originally had 10 retrieved and 9 fertilized. All were frozen. Two were thawed last cycle. Both /excellent quality. We used one and re-froze one.
3) 3 day vs. 5 day? They're thawed as 3 day embies. Do you feel we'd have better success if we let them grow another 2 days? Even that possibly means using up more frosties?
Other thoughts? Is there more info you need? I want to help her out in any way possible.
