In vitro fertilization is an assisted reproductive technology. Ivf is a procedure used to treat fertility problems and assist with the conception of a child. During ivf mature eggs are retrieved from the ovaries and fertilized by sperm in a lab. A few days later, the fertilized egg (embryo) or eggs are implanted into the uterus.

Today 8 days completed for my IVF 3 embroyes transfer now I am getting pain in lower stumk is that symptoms of pregancy?
Wait and see: I know the waiting can be hard but unfortunately that's what you have to do. The presence or lack of pain is not predictive of outcome. Just wait a few more days and your pregnancy test will tell you the outcome. ...Read more
If you have 5 day IVF transfer & it implants say 2 days later. Would the measurements of gest sac reflect 5dt date or the implant date on u/s scan.
1. This could be a sign of implantation as the embryo is hatching and trying to imbed into your uterine cavity
2. The spotting could be residual from either the egg retrieval or some cervical irritation from the embryo transfer- was it a difficult embryo transfer?
Make sure you stay on your Progesterone post-transfer- good luck! ...Read more
About 11-14: Your doctor should have you scheduled for a pregnancy test. Generally we test about 14-16 days after egg retrieval, which may be 11-15 days after transfer depending on what day the transfer occurs. ...Read more
I did my fresh day three transfer 11 days ago. I'm suppose to go tomorrow for my blood but I see I am spotting. Does that mean the IVF didn't work?
Be patient: Please be patient and wait for your pregnancy test tomorrow. Small spotting is extremely common and does not tell you 'yes' or 'no.' keep the test tomorrow, try not to worry, and good luck. ...Read more
Ivf beta hCG numbers 1st 12 days post 5 day transfer 1st went 61, 48hours later went 95, 48hours later went back 73, 48 later went up 108 isit normal?
Unfortunately not: Your HCG levels do not sound like they can be consistent with a healthy pregnancy, particularly an ivf pregnancy when we know exactly how far along you are. Most likely this is a biochemical pregnancy (very early miscarriage) or there is a small chance of ectopic pregnancy. You'll want your doctor to monitor you closely until the situation is more clear. Sorry, and good luck going forward! ...Read more
12w scan. Baby measuring 12W 6 days. Ivf transfer. Should have been 12W today. Have been diagnosed with GD-very mild & A1C was 4.6. Is it bad baby measuring 6 days ahead? NT scan & blood was GD.
Baby US scan: No. The six day window is within the error of measurement for an US at six weeks. Diagnoses with GD yet A1c at 4.6 is good. Check your sugars as directed by your OB. Watch your diet. Hope you met with a nutritionist and know how to eat properly during this pregnancy. Hope this helps. Best of luck and congratulations. Dr R ...Read more
No: There is no specific initial HCG level that is considered normal. Most reproductive endocrinologists like a level of 50 or more miu/ml. Most importantly HCG repeated 2-3 days latter should double, in your case 130-140miu/ml. Best whishes. ...Read more

I am suffering from high anxiety I have an atarax (hydroxyzine) prescription from my doctor however I am having an IVF transfer in 10 days is it safe to take atarax (hydroxyzine)?
Atarax (hydroxyzine) is ok but:
You can take Atarax if you are scheduled for ivf in ten days. Half life of atarax (hydroxyzine) is 3 hours, so it gets eliminated from the body very quickly, you can stop it 3 days prior to ivf.
But having said that Atarax is not a good drug for anxiety
discuss with your doctor. ...Read more

I am through my IVF cycle. And I am now 5 days after emberyo transfer. What pregnancy symptom ahould I expect?
Maybe none: The symptoms of pregnancy vary from woman to woman. Some have many symptoms and others have none. Nausea, vomiting, bloating, tiredness, urinary frequency are some common symptoms. Ivf can have exactly the same symptoms. Important: if you have no symptoms, you can still have a very normal pregnancy. Do not stop medication until your pg test is negative and your doc stops them! Best wishes. ...Read more
Is 1154 beta test too high, 22 days after hCG shot and 14 days after one 5 day blastocyst transfer through ivf/icsi?
No: Seems about right. Congratulations!Get a more detailed answer ›
Ivf fresh Transfer on 12/15 and 1st beta was 490 on 12/26. I've had brownish spotting on & off with back pain and mild cramps for a few days. Normal?
Repeat the BHCG: Since this was an IVF transfer you are probably already following closely with a doctor. Your doctor will want to repeat the BHCG to confirm a normal rise and then will schedule a sonogram to confirm pregnancy. Right now you will have to wait as it is too early to draw any conclusions ...Read more

I'm 3 days post IVF embryo transfer and after wiping with toilet paper there was some white creamy mucus is this normal?
29 y/o first IVF embryo transfer two days ago. My estrogen today was 2290 and progesterone was greater than 40.. What does this mean?
IVF transfer: It doesn't mean anything other than your hormones are at levels that can support the embryo. Likely your doctors have you on medications to ensure this is true. They will be doing a pregnancy test when the time is right so try to be patient. Good luck! ...Read more
