Sounds like a lot of hoop jumping but it will all be worth (knock on wood). Whatever happened to the idea of doing a mock cycle and an edo biopsy?

That does sound like an awful lot of testing, especially the infectious disease screening. If the couple tests positive now, how will you know that the embyros were infected then?

And please, do tell. I have read so much about these tisers. What are they? I'm assuming it's a drink of some sort but GoogleU has let me down.

I don't have any advice, but I do wish you good luck and will be crossing my fingers for you!!!!

Ahh...the overzealous testing... I remember it well. Actually, my clinic told me I couldn't use "grandfathered in," embryos (my friend's at the same clinic) because they didn't comply, nor could they comply with the new FDA requirements. If that's the case, I say run with the ball before Dr. Local interprets the rules a different way in the near future. For fun, re-read my archives from August-October 2005 to see my bitching about all the psychologist crap regarding donors and GC's...ugh! If Folgard is the same as Folplex (generic) I take a tablet twice a day. Each tablet is 2.2 mg, so 4.4 mg daily, plus my prenatal with 1000 mcg, so 5.4 daily. Good luck with everything...I'm really pulling for you!

How exciting! Thinking of you on this new stage in your journey.

Are you on Folguard because you have a MTHFR mutation?

Dr. Beer says if you have 1 mutation, take 1.

2 mutations? Take 2.

HTH.

I don't think you are being overly sensitive at all. Not like you haven't been through this 900 times before, it's just crazy. I just wonder what your other options would be, as it sounds like Dr. Local is not willing to negotiate on these tests, the counseling, etc.? I guess he just wants to CYA.

This is a total 'dot the eyes and cross the tees' exercise.
Sometimes I think doctors are robots!
You'll fly through the counselling.

So, I cannot even begin to tell you how annoying all the rigamarole you are getting for a couple of cells. Really really annoys me. But as I always say if you cannot get pregnant in the privacy of your own bedroom then you might as well bend over and take it up the ass..Jim Carrey line in Liar Liar.....because you are screwed financially, emotionally, and possibly no kid will result. Infertility sucks so bad.

Ok enough of my whining...slinking off to my own bitchospere.....

I feel you on the testing and counselling and all the other hoopla as it is the same here in the UK. It is a damn shame that the regs assume that everyone wanders into DE as an innocent abroad whereas most of us know way too much already about all the issues. You know you have to suck it up to move forward but it is nice to bitch about it first, eh?

Good to know you got the Folgard rx. Let me know what other vits I can advise you on hahaha. I recounted all my folic acid accumulations and it looks like I am taking 1.4mg total per day right now (not including food-based) and I will go back on the rx 5mg tablets daily once I get a little nearer to this cycle.

Oh- the testing sounds like a pain! I have no doubt that you would do a great job on the counselling front, too.

It really sounds like a good start, I was pondering on why they would make you and the other couple do infectious desease testing. If they did for them, the only thing that would make since is if they tested today something that was not available 5 years ago and it could have been there all those years, other than that, why would they test infections on them now? As for you two, some infections have nothing to do with external partners and are pernicious and silent. It is never a bad idea to re-test again, I think Dr. Local is being very cautious to discard any potential issues.
I am so happy for you that you are moving forward with donor embryo. Will be praying for you!
