I went to Fertilty and

I went to Fertilty and Surgical Associates of California. I paid around $13000, but the good thing is that it covers 3 cycles, in case they fail. All you pay for the 2nd and 3rd cycle is lab fees, which is like $2000. I had 35 eggs retrieved and 16 frozen blastocysts, all grade A, which according to them is great.

We don't really know, but in

We don't really know, but in this case, safer is probably better.

After the transfer, a definite time of abstinence to avoid damage to the pre-embryo has not been determined, most experts recommend abstinence for two to three weeks.

Theoretically, the uterine contractions associated with orgasm could interfere with the early stages of implantation. However, intercourse the night before pre-embryo transfer is acceptable.

Some physicians will advise intercourse before transfer as they feel that this will improve the chances of a pregnancy.
