Hello,

 

I am an IVF patient at AART for past 6 years. Have 3 failed ICSI cycles. Doctors think it could be my poor embryos.. they are graded between 10-12 every time. I am wondering if we can get donor embryos at AART. Even though we are going to raise this ques in our follow up meeting in a month or two I was hoping to find some answers before. We have been TTCing for 7 years now.

 

Thanks

I asked AART this question last year and at the time was told that donor embryos could be done if someone personally donated embryos to you but they did not have an anonymous donor program in place yet

I think Mt Sinai also has BMI cut off but I don't know what it is.  I believe that the 'reason' they give is that they don't feel that they can safely sedate women over a certain BMI to do egg retrievals and are worried about having complications.
