    IVF w/ PGD

    Any success stories? I've had two mc, 1 live birth (2006), and 2 more mc. I recently found out I'm a balanced translocation carrier and should try IVF w/ PGD.

    m/c's mentioned

    Hi--I don't have a success story (yet), but hopefully will soon! Today I started my first IVF w/ PGD cycle. I'm 34, have no children, but got pregnant twice in 2008 (once via injectibles/IUI and once naturally). We have a male factor for infertility. Both pregnancies ended in miscarriages. Both fetuses were tested after my D&C's and both were chromosomally abnormal. So, now we're on to IVF w/ PGD. The IVF clinic I go to has a lot of information about IVF w/ PGD for balanced translocations on their website (sbivf.com) and I've heard a lot of success stories from other patients there who did PGD for blanaced translocations. Good luck to you!!!!!

    Thanks!

    Thank you so much for responding! I will check out that website. Good luck to you as well. I'm in California, but working with a genetic lab in New Jersey if that isn't a crazy thing! I should get the green light from the PGD lab to start IVF next month.

    Is it Reprogenetics? That's a big one around here.

    lab

    Yes, it is Reprogenetics. Is that the lab you'll be using? How is your cycle going so far?

    The guy who created PGD and Reprogenetics started the clinic that I go to, so they have in-house PGD service, rather than sending the embryos out for testing. However, when I needed genetics counseling because I have premutation for Fragile X, I met with a counselor from Reprogenetics and she was fabulous. I've heard such good things about them. I think they also have a West Coast location in San Francisco too. Good luck with the PGD!

    My IVF cycle start on 1/21 with Lupron. However, I ended up in the emergency room with terrible neurological side effects (I lost sensation in my hand and feet) after starting Lupron, so I had to discontinue it. My RE changed my protocol and had substituted Ganirelix for Lurpon, so I should be able to start stimming when AF arrives. I'm excited, but nervous, given the bumpy start I've had to this cycle! When do you think your cycle will start?

    Oh my goodness...you really did have a rough start. I hope the next cycle is better for you with the change in medication.

    I can't start until we get the green light from Reprogenetics when the probes are complete. I sent all information and blood samples to them last Wednesday. It would be awesome to start stimulation in February, but it's more than likely going to be March.

    Good luck and keep me posted!

    pinkbabe: YES! I am 30 weeks pregnant from a successful IVF w/ PGD cycle. I have no children and all my other pregnancies ended in miscarriage due to chromosomal abnormalities, so IVF w/ PGD was exactly what I needed in order to have a successful pregnancy. GOOD LUCK TO YOU!!!!!
