I have heard of estrogen priming, but not too terribly familiar with what it entails. Hoping that it makes a big difference and you get some really good embryos to work with!!

Do you mind sharing what the protocol was? I wasn't a very strong responder on my first couple of cycles and I am storing up info in case we get lucky enough to try again.

Good Luck!!!

Good luck Lindsay! It sounds like this new protocol is working well for you by the numbers, that's fantastic =) DHEA works so well for some people so hopefully you have great results this time around.

Well... I just got my update a minute ago from the lab and they said they are all doing great! He Said they look beautiful! I'm so happy! This is day 3 which is the day I transferred both times before and by day 3 last two times I only ever had one A and 2 B' and even worse the 2nd time... I will get another update on Tuesday day 6 crazy! So I would say so far a MUCH better response! We are doing Pgd so they biopsy on day 6... We will know much more by then!
My response was not too great the past two IVF's it was ok the first time and even worse the 2nd... This new Dr has done everything different tho so may be its what we needed... I soooo hope so! I have heard they have a really great lab and I think sometimes that makes a big difference in its self. I will keep everyone posted! Lins

That is really great!! Hoping you keep getting good news!

I don't know much about pgd. How long does it take them to get the results back for the pgd? Do you transfer that day?

Sandy, thank you for sharing! I can use all the info! I have been so disappointed so far with this whole process... I am sooo cautious... I have not let myself get even a little excited until just now... And I know it can still turn at any moment! So scary! I know that we will most likely loose some... I'm prepared.. I'm just hoping for a few good ones! Can't be greedy at this point! Thank you, Lins

Ok update:
Got the call Wednesday only 4 made it to biopsy BUT they were 3 day 5 AA and 1 6AA soooo I'm pretty happy with that, they said that from their standpoint they looked as good as they could ever hope for and that if I wasnt doing PGD they would have been super excited to transfer any of those embryos on day 5. So all I really need is one! I feel much better today after going in and speaking with them. I start all the other tiff now... And will have my FET on 3.22 assuming my little embryos come back with good PGD results. I'll know that in about a week! I'll update then :)
