Shoegal where are you from? I am from the US but I live in Australia. Being that they dont do PGD here for gender selection, I am traveling to Hawaii to do PGD. I am luck enough to have a great Dr here in Oz that supports my wishes to do gender selection. I was worried at first that this process was going to be difficult due to the overseas traveling but so far its not that bad. My HI Dr basicly sent over all their instructions on what they want me to do and meds they want me to take. My Oz Dr was on board and we have just been following the schedule.
I have a history of irregular cycles so I took one cycle of birth control pills to regulate me and to supress (something, sorry I dont remember what it was. It had something to do with dominate follicles.) Today will be my 4th Gonal-F injection and I will be adding Menopur to the mix in the next couple of days. My estimated ER date is the 16th and I know that I will not be awake for it.
I will not be doing PIO, as it is not available in Australia. Being that the meds are soooo much cheaper here in Australia, I have already bought all the meds for this whole cycle and I am just taking them with me to HI. I will be doing vaginal incerts instead of PIO. To me they both sound bad but . . . you do what you've got to do!
So far I haven't had any problems getting monitored. I have already had 2 u/s this cycle to check the thickness of my lining and to get follicle counts. Right now I have 28 follies measuring <10 mm. So I am off to a good start! I leave for HI tomorrow and I will probably have another u/s shortl after I get there.
Shoegal when is your ER? How many eggs did you get out of your other 2 cycles? What is the worst part for you? For me, it's worring about the quality of the eggs and that they will all come back as boys. I wish you the best of luck!!!! Keep me posted on your progress!
