Reprofit basically said they'd do what I wanted, OE, but they were just trying to be honest about my chances. The fact is, they are absolutely correct about my chances with OE. It's 5-7% for a woman my age (43). I don't have unlimited funds to keep trying. I figure I can afford three cycles, max. I have a ridiculous amount of airline miles, so I save a fortune there. I just have to pay for food and lodging, which is very cheap. :-)
The big problem now is that they want to do pgs testing. Any clinic will want to do this because of my age. I've read it everywhere. I have a 90% chance of chromosomal abnormalities. It adds on thousands. But it is really necessarily? If I got pg spontaneously, I would have an amniocentesis, right? So now the big issue is that I really can only afford OE once. If it doesn't take, they say they can immediately implant a donor embryo. Do I get to pick the donor embryo in advance? Does this mean I;m basically having another couple's child? That's weird. I also think that extends my stay by weeks ($$). And what's this about Kryogenetics?
This is all A LOT to get my head around.
I've been reading up on reprogenetics (might have the term wrong) that it says a baby growing in your womb that doesn't have any of your genetic material, can still have it's genes influenced. It's like snowflakes on DNA. But what will I know about this donor embryo? I want the baby to at least resemble me. And, most importantly, have high intelligence. One lady said she finally came to terms with DE because, more than anything, she wanted to be a mom. So do I.
Also, I've read that day 3 transfer is better for older woman - I'm confused bc if you transfer then, you can't do pgs. Right?
