How long does the process take?

I do not have any centers near me at all that does IVF/ PGD. I am in southeast georgia which is 4 hours from atlanta, and 5 hours from orlando. The closest facility is a 6 hour drive or more that seems like it has good success rates. I was wondering how long it takes to do one cycle. I have heard you have to be on meds and then it also takes days for them to do the genetic testing. I know I wouldn't be able to go on vacation for a long time. I am just wondering for those who are planning to travel or have already how everything goes.

You should be able to do your monitoring locally and then travel to the IVF clinic for a week to do ER and then 5 days later, ET.

I cycled out of town and we had to be in CA for 10 days. You can read about it in my blog. I had my early monitoring appointments at a local clinic. You should check out RBA in Atlanta. They do GS.

 Thanks! I always heard nobody in georgia does GS, so i will have to check that place in atlanta out. We are military so we can only get 10 days of leave at a time.

If it helps, you only need DH for his sperm sample, so most of the days off required will be for you.  If that helps with planning.

If your DH saves up his leave days they'll let him take more than 10, especially if you wait til the summertime for when kids are out of school, you can a least get 3 weeks. Good luck
