Still debating CGH or no CGH

Ladies,

Here I am again/still with the same darned question. Thank you for your collective patience in helping with this decision. We have to decide by Monday. DH and I are like pendulums on this issue. One day yes, one day no. Sometimes we back and forth in the same conversation.

Please correct me if I'm mistaken or missing anything, but I think the pros and cons break down like this:

Cons:
* risk of damaging the embryo
* risk of a false-positive or false-negative if the cell they happen to biopsy is abnormal in a way the other cells are not

Pros:
* increase our chances of identifying the healthiest candidates, recognizing that it is not 100% certain, only 90%

We are with SIRM, where they do a Day 3 biopsy for a Day 5 transfer. They vitrify remaining embryos. We are planning on a single embryo transfer, whether or not we do CGH.

Also, what is mosaicism and how does that correlate with CGH? I've read up on it, but frankly, still do not understand.

Thanks
