In IVF, you have to make decisions about things fertile people may never even think about. Today my husband and I had our follow up appointment with our doctor. We learned the twins were girls and had Turner syndrome- essentially they had only one X chromosome. Miscarriage is common with this condition.
The doctor has presented us with three choices (the last choice I have “rewritten”)
- Test our remaining embryo and if it is viable transfer it
- Transfer our remaining embryo without genetic testing
- Do another egg retrieval and test all embryos. I have rewritten this choice as “Leave fertility treatment behind and embrace being a family of three.”
So there it is. Three choices. One rewritten by me as the only thing I am confident about is that I am not undergoing another egg retrieval.
