I joined the group today. I’m approaching 39 years old and live in West Sussex, and had 2x 8 cell embryos transferred yesterday on day 3. (04.07.19)
I was not told of any grading etc and the above is all I know about them.
They retrieved 6 eggs (01.07.19) and I was told the following day that 3 had taken.
We got the call yesterday to say that 2 were good and 1 was not so good, and that if we wanted a double transfer they would do that on day 3 (yesterday 04.07.19) but if we wanted 1 transfer it would be day 5 (Saturday 06.07.19)
We were so elated that we actually had embryos make it that far that we immediately decided on 2 and went that morning to have them both transferred. We were told the remaining one would probably not do any good but they would ring me on day 6 (Sunday 07.07.19) to let us know, but probably wouldn’t be good enough to freeze.
In hindsight I would have liked to have known more. What is the grading that others on chat sites talk of? If I had elected for single transfer on Saturday which embryo would they have used? And why did they give the option of 2 to transfer on day 3 but not on day 5? Why only one allowed to transfer on day 5?
Can anyone help give us guidance?
We wanted a double transfer as we wanted to up the possibility of having a multiple birth so that we would not need to do this process again to be honest
