FET: Sorry for the disappointment! according to asrm guidelines (if your actual age is 34) you could be an appropriate candidate for 2-3 embryos. Rather than insisting on a specific number, why don't you 'insist' that your doctor reach an agreement you are both satified with?

What causes frozen embryo thawing failure?

Why do: Embryos not thaw successfully? Traditionally many sub-standard embryos have been frozen that probably should not have; these often die in thawing. The usual cause of embryo death in the past with traditional slow-freeze techniques is formation and shattering of ice crystals within the embryo.

Depends: The Progesterone level is a little low if you are on Progesterone shots but may be fine on vaginal progesterone. The embryos sound reasonably good but there is not way to know if you are pregnant. It is best to follow your clinic's instructions for testing and not test on your own.

Embryonic freeze: Once the embryos are quickly frozen they will retain the genetic material without degradation. However, once they are thawed for any reason they have to be implanted immediately or they will deteriorate.
