Vicky, 31 - PCOS and need IVF w/PGD
Married (in 2003) to DH, 34
DS - born May 2006, conceived naturally, our little miracle (totally accident, were not even trying at that time and due to PCOS I only found out at the end of first trimester!)
TTC for 2 years:
Clomid 3 times, didn't work
IUI#1 Injectables (gonal-f min dose) - cancelled (2 follicles that were growing, disapeared)
IUI#2 Injectables (gonal-f) - doctor slightly increased medication -> I had too many follicles then. Had a choice to cancel or to have IVF. Ended up with conversion into IVF, had 5 embryos on day 3, put in 2 and froze 2. BFP (1/2010)
There was abnormality with the baby and had M/C with additional problems at 15 weeks. (4/2010)
Found out that I carry a gene that will cause problems. 50% chance of having the baby with that gene.
New plan is to have IVF w/PGD (Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis). The probe that can identify my specific disease in embryos when used with IVF is ready. Next step is to get proper testing and go into IVF #2 w/PGD.
