Default Advice on PGD?

We thought we would never be able to do this but have recently been given the opportunity (and finally the funding to do this!) but I am a little bit in awe about the process!

For anyone who has been there... what's it like? Thanks .....

Thanks both..and good luck to you in this crappy situation that we find ourselves in!

Appreciate its not everyones cup of tea.... but personally hoping this may be the light at the end of the tunnel. Who knows..don't want to hold out too much hope incase it doesn't work - but where would we all be without hope!
It's been hard on the CVS route...I am non symptomatic HD postive and hoping for some good luck!

Hi!
If you're looking for further details on PGD, I have written quite alot on our experiences over the past few years on my blog (address is below). It did not work out for us, and I found it a very difficult experience overall. We've since left our clinic in London and have gone down the route of egg donation instead.

Good luck with it though! I hope your journey is easier than ours has been.
