% Normal Eggs At 43 ?
Posted 23 November 2007 - 12:51 PM
I have a quick question .... The last IVF cycle at SIRM I had 9 embryos on day 3 and based on SIRM's test we were able to choose the best 4 for transfer. I became pg with singleton and now have my son. I was aged 40 (almost 41) at conception.
I turned 43 last week and we are considering one last cycle to try for a sibling. Based on past response I would be on the LA10.
So, at age 43 (oh and we'll be cycling Feb-08 so I'll be 43.3) what % normal embryos would you expect ? I'm not sure that I'll have enough for pgd so we would like some idea ? I heard (not from an RE) that about 90 % of eggs are abnormal at age 43 .... Does this sound accurate ? Not sure what our odds would be or if it's even worth it. Donor egg is not an option for us.
Thanks a lot

Had a nice consult with my RE so I guess that if there is a chance, albeit a long shot, it is worth one last go ...
Thankyou for taking the time to reply :)

I am actually already a SIRM patient (NY office). CGH is something to bring up at the next appt. We had discussed the basics(in terms of cycling again and the best protocol) and hadn't really gone into depth about additional options. I usually don't have a lot of embryos -- the last cycle that worked was unusual for me in terms of response (ie. it was a good one !).
Thankyou again for taking the time :)
