Hi everyone :)

 

I have a question, wondering if any of you guys have recently done CCS at olive? how long does it take to get the result back? is it really two weeks? that's such a long wait! and do you know which lab in the U.S they are working with?

I did it last year at Olive. Mine actually took almost 3 weeks but that was due to bad weather but yes, it actually does take 2 weeks th_aggahhh.gif . Feels like the worst wait of your life doesn't it? I believe the lab is in New Jersey they send it to and I think its called reprogenetics.

 

What doctor are you seeing at Olive? Is this your first cycle there?

Hi thisismyyear , thanks for coming :)

Dr. Tallon is super nice but I don't know if it's my case and my situation or not , she doesn't give you much explanation of what is going on . They say my husband and I are healthy and they cant find a reason why we can't have a baby on our own .
I did 4 iui with her they all failed we only met with her in the beginning and for the rest it was just a nurse giving me the prescription for a new iui. Same medications no change

And for ivf I'm waiting for my transfer . We met once after that for each ultra sound it was a different doctor.

Goodthing about her is that she's caring and responds to emails pertty quick .

I was seeing Dr. Hitkari. He is fantastic. I started with Dr. Warriach but transferred to Dr. Hitkari on my second ivf cycle. I had a great experience there. They were really supportive to my husband and I both during our failures and success. I really felt like they were rooting for us.

I was also unexplained like you they didn't know why we weren't getting pregnant but after 3 ivf cycles they assumed poor egg quality. I was 27 when we started ivf, my husband 31 and all our tests were normal so it was really shocking.

I am actually pregnant from a mosaic embryo which is something you may face with your ccs testing. I had no idea a mosaic was even a possibility. I thought it was either normal or not. Well turns out some embryos are both normal and abnormal. I had 2 mosaics on my first cycle no normals. So we froze my mosaics and I did two more retrievals to try and get a normal embryo and I never got one. So they decided to transfer one of my frozen mosaic embryos hoping it would correct in utero. And guess what it did! I am now 29 weeks with a healthy baby boy!

One question, were you on provera after your egg retrieval?

No I took endometrium after my retrieval. I think the reason I did was because they wanted to leave the option for transfer open...I never got a ton of eggs. I think with provera it closes that door or being able to do a fresh transfer.

 

On my successful frozen transfer I used estrace 3x a day and progesterone injections at 2cc a day (double dose). I found on the suppositories I got the worst cramps and spotting. I felt it was preventing the embryos from implanting. I chat to another girl in the US who is actually a doctor who was cycling as well and she found success with using the double dose injections so I asked Dr. Hitakri if I could try that. He agreed, I had no spotting or cramping using the injections and I got a BFP. I felt completely different on the injections...I felt better, like my body was ready to get pregnant. But that could of also been the difference of a fresh or frozen transfer. I would never do a fresh transfer again.
