Response to Has it been difficult for you to get your own embryo pictures?
I think it's pretty standard protocol for the lab to give you one picture of your embryos. I asked once why they only give you one picture, and not one every day. They said that if you are constantly disturbing the embryos and subjecting them to light, you could damage them or hinder their development.
That said, CCRM never gave me any pictures of my 7 embies, all of which died between day 3 and day 5. So maybe they don't photograph them until right before they transfer and/or implant them and if they don't make it one way or another, there's no pictures. That's my best guess to why you're having a hard time getting a photo.
