Success rate of day 3 versus day 5 embryo transfer for IVF. Is one method more successful than the other?

Success rate of day 3 versus day 5 embryo transfer for IVF. Is one method more successful than the other?

Need more space: to give the full answer. Short answer: they're the same, it depends on the embryo number and embryo quality. Day 5 allows transfer of fewer embryos (less risk of multiples) while keeping rates at the sam level. Could write a book about this, please consult with your MD or could do an online consult full details. Your doc is always first choice! Good wishes. ...Read more

Ivf (Definition)

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. One cycle of in vitro fertilization ...Read more

Which day of cycle its best to take Clomid (clomiphene) 3 day or 5 day cycle?

Which day of cycle its best to take Clomid (clomiphene) 3 day or 5 day cycle?

No one best day: Several studies going back to the 1980s demonstrated that pregnacy rates were the same whether cc was started on cycle day 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5. Most rei and fertility specialists have preferences for some days over others; it's sometimes a theoretical concern (i prefer cd3) and sometimes a practical matter. ...Read more

I am using 2 donors this cycle, inseminating each every other day, staggering days with each one. IE Donor 1 on days 1,3, 5, etc. Is this alright?

I am using 2 donors this cycle, inseminating each every other day, staggering days with each one. IE Donor 1 on days 1,3, 5, etc. Is this alright?

No! Not really: I'm sorry, this "sounds like" a good idea but it is not - this actually increases the chance of polyspermy (egg fertilized by more than one sperm) - which will not be a viable pregnancy. It might work but NOT a good idea. A fertility specialist can help you sort this thru, it would be worth talking with an expert. Good wishes! ...Read more

Is 67 a low beta hCG 9 days after a 5 day blastocyst tansfer? Ivf.

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

Aborted after 5 weeks, took misotac 3 tablet daily for 5 days, TVUS now endometrial thickness 6mm? Is it ok?

Doctors advice: It sounds as though you just saw a doctor for a follow up visit following your abortion. That doctor is in a better position to evaluate your overall health than we are. A 6 mm endometrial stripe is normal. ...Read more

Ovitrelle 250 is better or Zyhcg 5k i.u? I'm 33 endometriosis patient & underwent laproscopy last yr. Till date 4 IUI failed.... 5 is scheduled!!

Ovitrelle 250 is better or Zyhcg 5k i.u? 
I'm 33 endometriosis patient & underwent laproscopy last yr.  Till date 4 IUI failed.... 5 is scheduled!!

Depends: In order to answer this question, I need a little more information. It sounds like you have undergone ovulation induction and will need the HCG to help with ovulation and luteal phase support alond with the IUI. Work with your doctor on this. Most infertility centers have protocols that they use that have good science behind them. Keep stress down and the New Year may bring you success! ...Read more

Ivf stimulation going on. Day 2 of period follicles 22, estrogen 103. Day 3 estrogen 202 (after 150 menopur 150 gonal f). Is this average, good, low?

Ivf stimulation going on. Day 2 of period follicles 22, estrogen 103. Day 3 estrogen 202 (after 150 menopur 150 gonal f). Is this average, good, low?

Good: Are you saying they measured 22 different follicles? That's a lot. You're very early on in the process so it's hard to predict. At the very least though you're average to above average. They will need to watch for ovarian hyperstimulation if you have that many follicles. They may need to decrease your dose in the near future. Most women use stimulation meds for 10-12 days. ...Read more

What's the chances of getting pregnant if i take Clomid (clomiphene) 100 mg per day from day 2 through 6 & taking one injection of pregnyl 10, 000 i.U at day 13 ?

Maybe: This is too hard to estimate, as there are many more factors involved in conceiving. But one could expect a 10-15% conception rate on average. ...Read more

First IVF cycle, 5 day transfer of 2 embryos both compacting, hadn't reached blasto stage, day 7 started to bleed with cramps, have i lost them?

Not necessarily : Check with your ivf doctor, and make sure you're taking your medicines (progesterone ?) correctly. Do nothing anyone else says before checking with him/her. ...Read more

Can a day 5 blastocyst be transferred in day 7 of my natural cycle through ivf?

Can a day 5 blastocyst be transferred in day 7 of my natural cycle through ivf?

No: The window of implantation appears to close at about noon on day 6 post-retrieval. While there may be occasional pregnancies, the success rate drops significantly. I am not sure why you or your doc would want to transfer on day 7, but it is almost certainly a poor idea. ...Read more

5 failed IUI with letrozole, mild endo removed by laparoscopy, one miscarriage but conceived naturally after 2 yrs. IVF next or Iui with injectables?

No more IUI: Since you've failed 5 IUIs, it is no longer a good option for you, especially for someone with endometriosis. One reason patients with endometriosis not able to conceive naturally, is because the endometriosis will cause pelvic adhesion and tubal dysfunction. IVF is a much better option. If you are afraid of using drugs, you may choose natural cycle IVF or mild stimulation IVF. ...Read more

On 2nd round of Clomid (clomiphene) 100 mg( 3-7) along with injection merional for 5 days ( cd 8-12). Why this injection for 5 days?What are the chances of success

On 2nd round of Clomid (clomiphene) 100 mg( 3-7) along with injection merional for 5 days ( cd 8-12). Why this injection for 5 days?What are the chances of success

Depends: It depends on the causes of your infertility. However, I have concern about your Clomid (clomiphene) dose. It is too high, and it will have detrimental effect on your endometrium. I am afraid that you may ovulate well, but embryo may not able to implant due to thin lining. In terms of5 days injection, it is ok , but i don't think it will change the outcome that much. ...Read more
