Response to Has anyone done this or heard of this? Question re #2 with DOR.
You can definitely do that BUT it could be costly and time consuming. What I would do is do an IVF cycle, and let all fertilized eggs go to do day 6. If you have at least 4 blastocysts, have a CGH microarray test done on all of them to make sure that the chromosomes are normal. If at least one comes back as normal you have about a 70-80% chance of a live birth in the future. If not, keep going until you do.
Just make sure that you find a place with an excellent lab that can do the genetic testing and does vitrification.
I just did a version of this . . . I have a daughter who will be one tomorrow and two frozen embryos from the IVF that produced her. I had them thawed, tested, and refrozen to see if either is normal. I found that one is, and that made me feel a little better about not trying again right away (I am 40).
