Sounds like she didn't have any blasts frozen

Response to oh boy advice needed for friend (everything mentioned)


Although PGD can be done on day 3 embies, I would highly highly discourage it. I have been told by more than two REs that PGD actually HURTS the chance of implantation if done on day 3 embryos for our age group. She can't do CGH probably because she has no blasts, and thawing day 3 embryo to culture to blast is a HUGE gamble. My last RE at Stanford actually did a study on PGD, and it has been proven to harm the chance of implantation for older aged women.

I would say, if she is emotionally strong enough, her best chance would actually be transferring without further embryo manipulation at this point. Doing PGD on a thawed day 3 embryo is a bad bad idea.
