Going with our Gut
[QUOTE=JediBonas]I wanted to wish you good luck. Just one question: do you have a genetic condition or multiple miscarriages that would indicate doing PGS? You seem young to do it without a background/known problem. Of course, if your insurance covers it why not, but if you’re paying out of pocket that’s another thing. Sorry for being nosy![/QUOTE]
Hey JediBonas, not nosy at all! I really appreciate everyone’s insight and feedback. I am young, but since having my Mirena IUD removed four years ago (July 2009) I have only ovulated eight or ten times without intervention. Doc thinks that between the 5 rounds of Clomid, 2 IUI’s, and random natural O’s that I should have had some success by now. Especially since DH and I have dtd every other day to every two days throughout every cycle (totally exhausting, but that’s another story).
Insurance doesn’t pay and it’s crazy $$$, but we’re going all in to try the most advanced technologies out there. During my 2nd IUI I have eight follies above 12, with two 15’s and an 18, so I feel like something should have stuck. I was screened for hereditary conditions a few years ago, but last week drew blood for the Counsyl test, which is supposed to be very thorough and test for many more conditions than the last screening. At the end of the day though, no family history.
I guess I just feel like knowing would be really calming. There’s still a 10% chance that something skips detection, but I like the odds of transferring a really healthy blast after giving my body a few weeks to recover from aggressive stims. Anyway, who knows, right?
Love hearing from all of you. GOOD LUCK!!
