I chose MGH. Really like them, successful first try. All the nurses are so helpful, quick to respond, details to attention. The financial department is also very easy to work with. They open 7 days a week so you don't need to worry about scheduling. They do have a rotation of doctors though. You will get whoever is on duty that day. But I meant, it's totally fine. You probably talk to the nurse a lot more anyways

Hey! I’m new here and would like some input. I’ve been working in a new position for almost 5 months. In that time I’ve witnessed some unethical and lots of unprofessional behavior. I’ve been yelled at and berated by my coworker 3 separate times because of minor errors. I’m ready to quit. There are so many major issues in this company that I don’t know if I want to subject my mental health to this degree of toxicity. I just don’t know how to move forward from here.

Sorry for the seemingly stupid question, but what if I decided to have the doctor do an FET without any of the medication (PIO, estrace, etc.). I have a PGT-A tested embryo waiting in frozen state, I just can't mentally prep myself for all the injections. Is there a reason this wouldn't work?

I had a FET early this morning of a naturally hatching PGA tested embryo. Throughout the day I have felt absolutely totally normal. In the past 10 minutes (around 11 hours after the transfer), I have started to feel the tiniest pings in my abdomen (almost like the feeling I get when I ovulate and very different from period cramps). Has anyone experienced this? Not sure if I am reading too much into it or if implantation can happen this quickly. Thanks!

Has anyone taken part in sperm sorting at their clinics to give a better chance of choosing X or Y sperm in IVF? My clinic has a study where it can skew girl 60/40% but the working hypothesis is that the abnormal Y sperm will fall down with the heavier X sperm, so there might also be a higher chance of aneuploidy. Wanting other people’s results on this. If not, on IVF genders in general - are you getting more boy or girl normal embryos?

Hi everyone! For those that feel comfortable, would love to see the breakdown AFC > eggs retrieved > fertilized > embryo > genetically normal (please feel free to include other steps, add in more numbers/details).

Hi friends here… how long would you wait between FET cycles? I had a miscarriage (a few weeks only) in May from the FET, and my doctor said I could start a new FET cycle now that I have my period. I’ve been on Thyroid meds but they don’t monitor my TSH (unless I ask it to be checked). The doctor says no need to wait unless I want a mental break. I don’t need a mental break but wonder if I’m rushing when my body is not ready. Just confused… thanks all!
