    So my doctor has recommended PDG banking. What this is and IVF cycle with out the Transfer. So i am starting my Extrace on the 6th. I will do 450 unites of folistim and expected ER around march 25th. They then fertilize the eggs using ICSI wait for blastocys stage and the send out for PDG testing to determine the best embies. They will then freeze what is viable. Once the results are in and we are satisfied with the amount frozen we will begin transfer. Anyone have experience with this kinda cycle? I have been on DHEA and CoQ10 for 3 weeks hoping to increase ovary function.

    I look forward to anyones thoughts or experiences.

    I have been reading a lot about PGD because the issue with my first cycle was quality. My RE wouldn't recommend it for me after just one cycle which I can understand but if IVF 2 fails, I may consider a second opinion. From what I read, PGD seems like the way of the future and a good aggressive treatment. Why not analyze the embryos and find the best ones?! I wish you all the luck in the world and am looking forward to taking this crazy journey with you to a happy ending!! Talk soon!!
