What is the success rate for 1st IVF with the best possible embryo?  We did a day 5 blastocyst transfer.  My wife is 35 years old.  6 failed IUIs

It depends: It depends on the University Center or MD's office at which the IVF was done. Most results are reported as 3 or 6 month cycles for conception. Some Centers have even reported conception rates when no viable products can be obtained rather than live baby rates. So, this was a question that you should have asked your provider BEFORE embarking on IVF. ...Read more

I am 11days post 5 day blastocyst transfer and have been experiencing period like cramping on and off for five days, is this normal?

IVF, 7 weeks pregnant but scan shows 6 weeks, 1 five day blastocyst, I have 2 gesational sacs, one has a fetal pole and yolk sac and 2nd has nothing???

IVF, 7 weeks pregnant but scan shows 6 weeks, 1 five day blastocyst, I have 2 gesational sacs, one has a fetal pole and yolk sac and 2nd has nothing???

Repeat Ultrasound: After IVF, one can see several scenarios. It is best to wait and repeat the ultrasound. Do not feel anything is wrong till a repeat ultrasound is done. Early ultrasounds can be confusing. Sometimes, twin pregnancies happen even with 1 blastocyst transfer as the blastocyst can divide. However, growth discrepancy can happen and one may survive and the other may not. Good Luck! ...Read more

I am 7 Days past 5 day 2 perfect blastocyst transfer and test this morning showed very faint positive. Is this a good sign?

Too early: The possibility of pregnancy is there but still too early to tell remember spontaneous abortion can take place up to 16 weeks therefore is quite early to tell, if this is going to be a viable pregnancy. Reason why you doctor sees you every 3 to 4 weeks during your pregnacy and follows intra uterine growth with sonograms. ...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

Blastocyst: Spotting is extremely common in the weeks following et, I tell my patients to expect a little — so do not be alarmed. Have you called your own ivf doctor? If you are worried you should let him/her know, they'll help you. ...Read more

Hi, I had day 5 embryo at blastocyst stage grid bc transfer and today is 5 days pass the transfer I don't any symptoms does this mean negative.

Hi, I had day 5 embryo at blastocyst stage grid bc transfer and today is 5 days pass the transfer I don't any symptoms does this mean negative.

Embryo transfer: We presume implantation takes place within 48 – 72 hours of the transfer but you won't detect any pregnancy hormones until 7 – 12 days after the transfer. Therefore, you could still be pregnant even if you don't have any symptoms. ...Read more

Could a 5 day frozen blastocyst be divided into identical twins after transfer?

Yes: Actually this is slightly more common after day five transfer ~1%. Since the embryo is in nearly hatching or hatching, the transfer "pressure" can cause the embryo to split into identical twins. This is one of the disadvantages of day 5 transfer. Good luck. ...Read more

Is it possible to use embryos which are between 2-8 cells on day 5. In other words they haven't developed to morula or blastocyst stage. I am finding?

Possible but.....: Unfortunately, it sounds like the embryos have not developed well. A day three embryo typically has between 6-10 cells. By the time day 5 or 6 is reached, the blastocyst should have hundreds of cells. The embryos you are describing have basically stopped growing around day 2 or 3. They have a very low chance for a successful pregnancy. Sorry about that. ...Read more

Can implantation of a blastocyst occur a day or so after an abortion?

3 days of spotting and 1 day with a loss of a brown stringy clot, 10 days past 5day blastocyst transfer, is it all over for my icsi?

3 days of spotting and 1 day with a loss of a brown stringy clot, 10 days past 5day blastocyst transfer, is it all over for my icsi?

Patience: Today's home pregnancy tests are very accurate, but if done too early, a negative result may be due to testing too soon. One can do a test in a few days. The result will be reliable by then. Avoid thinking anything about eggs, sperm, pregnancies, or babies, etc., until after doing the pregnancy test. ...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

I got negative result on hpt on day 5 post blastocyst frozen transfer. No symptoms at all
Did I test too early?

Maybe: The low end of positive for some hpt's is as low as 15 and others 25. Check the insert on your test to find out which one. However, with such an expensive procedure, I would be asking for a serum (blood) pregnancy test. You can have false negative urines. ...Read more

Is a 6 cell embryo on Day 3 an option to make it to a viable blastocyst for IVF transfer on Day 5? I know ideally it should be an 8 cell on Day 3.

Would be concerned a: Bout how it got to be 6 celled. The fertilized egg should split into two and each of the cells then consequently double so should be 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, etc. 6 is not part of that so was there some sort of problem during 4-to-8 split such that half the slcells didn't split? ...Read more
