6 Cell Embryo Transfer Success
Is it possible on the day 5 of embryo transfer to have one embryo with only 2 cells and one with 6 cells?! thank you
Definitely!: You don't give much about your et, but if they are from the same egg-retrieval, embryos definitely grow at different rates. A 2-cell is likely lagging behind if the 6-cell is developing normally. Are these from a frozen transfer? Normal embryos can lose cells from freezing and thawing in some cases. Good luck. ...Read more

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

Very early: It is good that you have a positive pregnancy test. Not many other conclusions can be made form this limited information.

If my embryos were frozen on day 5, and then thawed for an embryo transfer, are they considered day 5 or day 6? They were graded 4ab and 4bb. Thanks!
Day 5: If they were frozen on d5, then thawed and transferred without spending additi90nal time in media they are considered d5. You should always consult your ivf doctor for specifics, since he/she knows your case better than we do. Embryos are sometimes graded 1, 2, 3..., sometimes a, b, c, but sounds like you have a great bunch...Best of luck! ...Read more

Respectfully disagree: In our experience, by doing pgs, or checking each embryo to make sure it is chromosomal normal not only improves pregnancy rates but decreases the risk of a miscarriage. Although some clinics disagree with this, our data definitely supports the increase pregnancy rates and decrease miscarriage rates with chromosome testing. Also, emotionally, you know that you transferred normal embryos; and if abnormal, at least you did not do an et and were hopeful and spend the money on a transfer. ...Read more
