Our IVF journey started in March of 2016. I have PCOS which compromised my egg quality greatly.
After two retrievals totaling more than 30 eggs, a chemical pregnancy, and a miscarriage, we decided that if we had any embryos that made it to day five, they would need to be tested at this point.
I changed my life for six months to build egg quality. We knew that would be the trick - - if anything would work. At my third retrieval, we retrieved 30 eggs, 20 were mature, and 17 fertilized. We knew it was a numbers game. Our embryos never grew how they should. We had three make it to day five (woo hoo! Never had that many) and all three were PGS biopsied. All three came back normal!
We transferred the first embryo in August of 2018 from that batch and had a chemical pregnancy. We knew with all the trauma that my body had in the past year that it was in our best interest to re-do the ERA test.
Sure enough, my window had shifted 17 hours. We prepared for transfer number six with my adjusted window and lucky number six it was! I am now 21 weeks pregnant and expecting a baby boy in July of 2019.
If it weren't for Igenomix, I am not sure this pregnancy would have been possible. It saved us from a lot of heartache of knowing the chromosome outcome along with my adjusted window. I preach these two tests so much. It's a game-changer.
When you work so hard for something, you want to make sure everything in your control is perfect - this allowed me to feel I gave it my all. I am so appreciative of this process and the gift it has given us.
