So, Rachy, let me get this straight, this is the way I always thought it was done: don't you have to do cycle #1 stimming, egg retrieval and ICSI, and then the 4-9 month wait to find the faulty gene through PGD, then you'd do a FET with identified good embryo's? Or do I have it mixed up?
It is great news that FET's don't count as "cycles" and only fresh cycles do!
The probes are made prior to starting an ivf cycle, they have to be done first in order to detect abnormalities or pgd would be pointless if they don't know what they're looking for, this part takes up to 9 months. Once the probes are made, you can begin stimming. They take a few cells out at day 5 blastocyst then freeze the embryos. Next is the pgd part. The probes are used on the extracted cells and results can be available in as little as 24hrs to as long as 2 weeks. Affected embryos will be allowed to perish and they will thaw a single unaffected embryo for transfer in a natural FET. Confusing but amazing
Im not sure, they need my dna and a sample from both my children so they can map out our fault, I have no idea what specifically they do I just know that the probes will help them identify affected from unaffected embryos. I will ask the ins and outs at my first appointment, that wasn't a question I had thought of asking but I will now
Hi Ladies, i am new here and have a few questions.
I have finally persuaded dh to have a reversal, he had the vasectomy about 3 years ago, we had an early baby born at 28 weeks, due to pre eclampsia, dd is now 6 and i really feel i want to have another baby now, well have done for the last two years but dh was not in favour, think i have gotten over the worries we had been feeling of having another early baby which was why my dh had the vasectomy in the first place, but thankfully my bp is under control. I am 35 and dh is 41.
I am in Ireland and there are no surgeons over here that specialise in reversals so think its time to look further a field.
Two places that have been recommended to me are Duncan Harriss clinic and also Dawson Microsurgery, am i missing any?
would love feedback on both, they both seem to be nearly the same cost and £2900. Are most places around this price? (better get saving)
Hi Ladies, just a quick update, i found a surgeon in Dublin that specialises in reversals, so my hubbies consultation is on april 25th, the cost is €1780 which is a good bit cheaper than quotes from the UK, we can pick the date for the procedure at that appointment, at the moment we are looking at end of august, as we have holidays booked etc.
Just wondering how sore will my hubbie be after it? will he need a few days off work etc? i havent mentioned much about pain to him, might put him off!!!
hey! Aw thats fab! with my hubby, we were very surprised at just how quickly it all healed. We followed the after-care plan very strictly to ensure it healed properly. He will need afew days off work, mainly due the area being stitched and swollen. My hubby was bruised really badly and looking at it i was sure it would take weeks to heal but he had 2 days off, hardly any pain relief and we were anle to 'get busy' 13 days after its amazing how quickly it all heals. So to summarise, it looks bad, but the after pain isnt anywhere near as bad as it looks. Hubby didnt even need any pain relief when he woke up, took his first lot the next day and that was mainly because the support underwear they gave him was diggin in where he was swollen. Good luck hunny! Keep us posted on when you get a date sorted
My hubby had the worst of the reversal procedures (the name of his reversal surgery is in my signature) and it was two weeks of "hard" recovery, where he didn't move much and didn't work, and another two weeks of lighter recovery, he was feeling much better 4 weeks out...

Spire Washington Tyne & Wear. We had ours done by Mr Benjamin Jenkins (microsurgical). We had a free 10 min consultation, had a full consult when we decided to go ahead costing £100 and the surgery cost £2595. There were no other costs incurred x
Its private healthcare so unless you can get credit its something you need to arrange payment for x
