I did a quick estimation and there’s a possibility that the egg retrieval day might be in the end of my client project. The difficulty is that you don’t know which day it is until maybe 2or3 days ahead. How do you guys handle this last-minute PTO day? Taking the whole week off doesn’t make sense either since it’s end the of project. Thank you!

For me it helps to think of it as a sick day, not PTO (for us sick, doctors appointments, etc are all classified as sick). What would your project team do if you happened to get sick that least week of the project? They’d figure out how to finish without you.

For both my retrieval cycles, I gave my partner a heads up that I would need to be out a day for a medical procedure, but that the timing was somewhat fluid. Maybe I was just lucky but it was a complete non-issue both times.

I gave the same heads up.

I gave my manager a head’s up and marked a 2-3 period as sick days. I mentioned it was a medical issue and I wouldn’t know the exact timing until the last minute due to the doctor’s schedule. I emphasized I was completely fine and this was routine to minimize any concerns. That was it.

I have done the same..

I give my team a heads up that I would be off for one day in the next week. One day was enough for me. And you just have to prioritize it and let others figure things out on that day

It’s a medical procedure that’s timely and you have to do what you do. I think your project will be fine and people will understand
