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

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

Et is the final step in an ivf cycle, and is done in some other circumstances as well. It is extremely safe, mostly comfortable, and usually not technically difficult. Experts agree on its importance, but ...Read more

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

No!: You are testing too early with a d3 transfer, very rarely will you get a reliable positive if you test early. Keep the pregnancy test your ivf doc scheduled you for, do not change any medicines you are on, and good luck! ...Read more

If the Hcg titre is 78.87, measured 12 days after embryo transfer of 2 embryos, 3day post fertilisation, both are8 cells. Is this level good or low?

Usually the doctors will check the BHCG over a few days to establish a normally rising trend. Eventually ultrasound will be done to verify a normal pregnancy ...Read more

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!

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

What is pgd? How does it help improve chances in an embryo transfer?

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
