As you may have seen already, if you follow us on Instagram (which I suggest you do!), we create lots of mega useful video content with our fertility experts and those also on the TTC / IVF journey. We also go ‘LIVE’ on Insta a couple of times a week and cover an array of fertility topics and shared community stories.
Here is a Recap of Week Three
Amber’s Personal Journey & Campaigning for IVF
Watch above as we were joined live by the lovely Amber Izzo, who shares her six-year TTC (trying to conceive) journey, starting from feelings following an infertility and PCOS diagnosis, to coping with difficult comments. Amber is also working wonders to bring about change with the IVF postcode lottery.
Watch highly skilled embryologist, Kristen, in Perth Australia, answering multiple questions about Day 3 embryos, Day 5 embryos & Day 6 embryos / success rates. We discuss transferring one or two embryos and extras such as PGT (pre-genetic testing) and embryo glue, as well as awesome tips for pre & post transfer.
Watch above as we spoke with Mila at Cryos International sperm and egg bank, about how people can go about selecting a sperm donor, considerations for how many straws to buy for fertility treatment (IUI and IVF), as well as thinking about future siblings. We also discuss how Covid has affected sperm donation, but the vast number of sperm donors they still have available to people around the world.
Cryos are giving away FREE sperm as part of our current global initiative.
Hear about amazing book resources and support groups for when picking a sperm donor, and also for when talking to your child about donor conception.
Hear all about donor conception considerations (egg, sperm, and embryo donation).
