The short version of my story is I have done two ivf cycles, one funded one not and both were successful. I got 8 and 5 embryos. I was in my early 30s and so at the time pgs testing didnt seem worth it.

First transfer resulted in my daughter, and since then Ive had four transfers all failed and no clinical pregnancy. My doctor blames the embryos. On a level i get it, I know they arent all normal and even the ones that are arent necessarily going to stick .

My uterus apparently looks great and I did a Matris before my last transfer and scored 8.5. My lining is always triple stripped and good. This could be bad luck and I get it, but there also could be an issue and I am having a hard time getting her to agree to more testing like an era. I also had a surgery to repair my c section in Jan and have had chronic utis since my pregnancy.

I decided to call Hannam and ask for a consult. Theres a few month wait but Im really hoping for more testing or at least a change in transfer protocol. I definitely feel like I need a second opinion.

My questions are as follows:

1. Does anyone know how hard/risky it is to transfer embryos between clinics?

2. Can you pgs test frozen embryos?

Right now I am thinking I will do one last try with my current clinic before officially doing this.

Can anyone tell me positive stories about Hannam? I would love to avoid doing another ivf cycle, but if I only have a few normal embryos I will just because Im turning 34 this year and I dont want to wait anymore.

Hey Melissa,

 

Sorry about your results. I know how frustrating it can all be. Don't have much input on the transferring of embryos but I do know it's not recommended to biopsy frozen embryos for PGS and refreeze because they can be damaged. I also ended up at Hannam after two failed cycles and am now about to give birth from a successful cycle with them. There was a recent thread opened with women discussing their experiences there. I'm going to try and link it and hopefully it works :)

IMO it is worth exploring why you have chronic UTIs.

Hi, I am sorry you are going through this. A few friends of mine transferred embryos from Europe to the UK, they used services of cryo shipping agencies. x
