That's a great tip about the stress, thanks for sharing that!
Too bad your first clinic made you feel that way. Is Olive a new clinic in BC? You would think they would care more especially being new, to try and establish a good reputation.
My friend loved Sher/SIRM, though there were a couple of roadbumps I think. Like her first attempt there her eggs didn't produce and they had to cancel the cycle and he didn't know why. But maybe that's just the way it is, not his fault. He adjusted her protocol and it worked the next time. This was after previous IVF failure at a Canadian clinic. Yes it was her first time on intralipids.
That's great your immune tests were only $600... wow. I'm thinking of dealing with preventmiscarriage.com because SIRM will only test people who are going to do treatment there and that's not my situation.
As for me, it's not full IVF because the eggs have already been retrieved. It's not 'just' transfer either as they need to thaw the eggs and then fertilize. I am also interested in getting the embryos tested. Are you doing that?
I just recently changed my signature to talk about my frozen eggs. I kept it so secret for so many years that it was only recently I was able to even share that info with anyone. I used to be very scared of judgement, and the fact that I spent a lot of money doing it, and it's just very personal. But now that it's coming closer to the time of trying them, I am sharing with a few people including here. It has been helping me that it's getting more exposure in the news, not to feel like it was such an "out there" thing to do, while it was still "experimental".
