Dear Trudy:
There are two types of PGD/IVF. One is PGD for aneuploidy. Aneuploidy is the presence of an abnormal number of chromosomes. If you have recurrent pregnancy loss that is unexplained, or recurrent loss due to aneuploidy, you should be able to start as soon as your preliminary testing is done, and your cycle and our schedule allows - usually within 3 months.
If you have recurrent pregnancy loss due to a rearrangement of your chromosomes or your husband's chromosomes, called a balanced translocation, this can take 6-8 weeks longer.
If your appointment is in August, I would not attempt pregnancy at this time. We look forward to meeting you in person!

: Dr. Chen:

: I'm scheduled for a first consult for PGD/IVF at the beginning of August. Roughly how long does it take from first consult to moving along to an attempt.

: (I'm trying to determine at what point I should stop trying naturally in case of miscarriage w/o it impacting going forward with IVF).
