1. Our clinic would like to thaw 15 eggs to be confident in the likelihood of a successful cycle.
I would prefer that they thaw 10 as I only want to transfer one and don't want to lose some in the process, that may not make it to blast for re-freezing.
Legally, is it our decision or the clinic's on how many to thaw?
I feel as we are paying, it's our decision.
The embryologist seemed to think it was his decision.
2. Similarly, if we want them to transfer on Day 3 instead of Day 5, is that our decision or the clinic's? (Apparently it is more work for them to transfer on Day 3 as it requires more monitoring.)
We just signed consent forms and this wasn't mentioned anywhere, though it did ask how many embryos we wanted to transfer.
Would it just be a matter of us writing on the consent form, or adding an addendum about our wishes for these other items?
