Infertility Veterans

Update: Our phone consult with C.CRM

My Update: We had our phone consult yesterday late in the afternoon. It went really well. Our doc, Jennifer Brown, was very on top of things and had reviewed our charts and history. She asked us to talk about how we got to the point we're at and so I gave her our history, in my own words.

She was familiar with things I called out and noted that "she had seen that" several times, which was awesome and made me feel like the trouble of getting all our records was totally worth it.

She thought that we would be very good candidates to do IVF with PICSI with CCS testing, to see if we can find any normal embryos and then move to a FET with 1 or 2 of those embryos (if there are any.)

She wants to really stim me up good, so that we're getting most of the 20 some eggs we've usually see to a mature stage ? she'll do this through a tweak of the antagonist protocol that CCRM uses. She'd also like me to stim longer than my usual 9 days to push it so that this can happen. Since we're doing antagonist and they won't be doing a transfer right away, I'm at less of a risk for OHSS.

She thought that I was probably still "unexplained" as my "light PCOS" doesn't really line up with much medically besides a higher AFC. She thought that my "DOR" also wasn't adequate because of my higher AFC and good response to stims.

As for DH's high fragmentation rate, we'll use PICSI to ferret out the best swimmers and hopefully we'll have a high fertilization rate.

Having repeated losses means having abnormal embryos for some reason(s), so the CCS testing will help us figure out if it's possible for us to have normal embryos. Also they'll run another RPL panel on me.

They'll check for blood flow and do a hysteroscopy (another kind of 'scopy to add to my bucket list!) and I'll have a endometrial biopsy to check for the beta 3 integrin protein.

I'll have to have my first mammogram because I am old (over 35). YAY boob squashing!!! But I can do that here, with my normal doc.

CCRM wants a lot of bloodwork re-run in their lab and all the uterine under the hood kinds of things, which is cool. Much of the testing we've done will "count" and we don't need to redo things again. Thank Jebus.

I asked her straight up if this was a reasonable thing for us to do and she said yes, no doubt.
So?
We have our One Day Work Up (ODWU) scheduled for the 4th of January! From there, depending on what happens with our tests, I'd guess we'd be looking at a mid January cycle start date or more likely, mid-February.

It feels so good to have a plan!

Thanks ladies for being curious about what was going on. It helps to know I've got a good posse lookin' out for me. Big Smile

    We're very very much hoping that we'll have a normal embryo, if not more than one - but I don't know and I want to be positive and optimistic without thinking about this will be the magic bullet. We'll see.

    Yes! Our monitoring will be done here and my doc/RE is totally on board. We'll need to go out to Denver toward the end of stims for monitoring when we're getting close and then for the retrieval. Then, if we have a normal embryo, we'll go back for the transfer at a later date.

  • That sounds great. Well, not great in the sense that you're looking at a few billion trillion tests and such from here on out to January, but great in the sense that it really seems they've got a good handle on your situation and are developing a plan for tackling it.

    I've always been curious why it is that places like CC.RM have such good success rates and other clinics don't. Maybe it's how thorough they are. 

    I'm rooting you on! Yay, Bzeety!
