To PGT or Not PGT

Hi! I have had three natural miscarriages and have gone through two IVF cycles with two failed transfers. My doc is recommending PGT for this next cycle as it provides more information about embryos and eqq quality, therefore, you can hone in on possible causes of infertility. At an older age, chromosomal abnormalities in embryos are much more common, and PGT abnormal embryos will not result in a live birth. We will be pursuing PGT testing for our next cycle as it ultimately could cancel out the costs spent transferring chromosomally abnormal embryos and save even more emotional and physical stress of miscarrying. It will also help us make a better decision on whether or not donor eggs should be the route we pursue. Good luck with your decision and wishing you the best with your cycle.

Beginning 3rd IVF cycle- hopefully 3rd time's a charm!

At 42 I probably would unless there was only 1 or 2 embryos that could both be transferred fresh

There is also some new research that says that where they sample the cells from for analysis may not be fully representative of the entire embryos and that some embryos can self-correct.

I am not sure whether it is the same procedure, but a close friend of my sis who had experienced mcs got pregnant thanks to IVF PGS NGS. It occured genetics was the issue.

I just feel that it is a time saver at our age. I would also recommend an ERA test prior to the transfer of the healthy embryo. I did this and my receptive window was off by 12 hours, so I needed more progesterone than average...just saying what has worked for me.
I had a 7 week miscarriage and a chemical pregnancy followed by 10 years of no pregnancy before trying IVF.
