6 Weeks Pregnant No Symptoms Ivf
Hi my sister did IVF and she is 6 weeks pregnant. Her doctor told her the Yolk Sac is bigger than Gestational Sac. Is that usually normal? Source: H
Some confusion: I think something got lost in translation somewhere: the yolk sac is contained inside the gestational sac, so it's not possible for the thing inside to be bigger than the thing outside. The doctor may mean "bigger than expected" or "smaller than expected." I hope this helps. ...Read more
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
Mostly like natural: I'm not certain I understand what you're asking, but pregnancy symptoms are related to the pregnancy not how you got that way. In other words, if you account for possible multiples, and for the fact that ovaries are stimulated in ivf, the symptoms are the same as in a natural pregnancy. ...Read more
None: Usually at 5 weeks of pregnancy or 3 weeks after your egg retrieval you may not have any symptoms at all from the pregnancy itself. Most symptoms at this time, if any, are due to the ivf. The range of symptoms can vary widely for reasons that are not well understood. So no symptoms to lots of symptoms can all be normal. If you have any concerns please let your doctor know. Good luck! ...Read more
IVF pregnancy: If you mean 4 weeks after embryo transfer: fatigue, occasional pressure and cramping, and mild spotting are all very common. You should've had a positive pregnancy test, serial HCG should be rising appropriately. Transvaginal ultrasound can show gestational sac (s), and you can usually see/measure a fetal pole and fetal heartbeat. ...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

Nausea most common: 2 weeks after ivf would make you 4 weeks pregnant. So nausea is the most common symptom. In general you should not feel anything still from the ivf with 2 exceptions. Some women can still have enlarged ovaries which can cause discomfort. And some women can be overstimulated which can cause bloating. But in general you should feel like a normal early pregnant women with some aches and pains. ...Read more

Hi 5 weeks pregnant after IVF no any symptoms except constipation and getting more hungrier is that normal please help me I'm so nervous.
Ultrasound: It seems it would really be helpful for you to get an ultrsound in 2 weeks. At that point, you might start to see something, a little gestational sac, for instance. It's hard, and nervewracking, but so long as you are eating healthy, getting rest, decreasing stress and exercising, then all you can do at this point is wait. It's normal to have no symptoms at this point in pregnancy. ...Read more

I'm 5 weeks pregnant by ivf. My breasts were tender, but now they are normal. Do symptoms come and go? Are ivfers more prone to miscarry?
Yes and Maybe: Pregnancy symptoms like breast tenderness or nausea can change over time, and symptoms can decrease but the pregnancy is still healthy. Miscarriage risk may be increased depending on your age (higher risk in older women) and the reason for ivf. Diminished ovarian reserve (low egg supply) increases the risk of miscarriage at any age, compared with tubal problems/ male factor. Follow up with your md. ...Read more
I'm 5 weeks and 2 days pregnat by IVF and have no symptoms. Is this normal? When should I start feeling symptoms?
Congratulations!!!: I am sure it has been a long, anxiety-provoking period to get the ivf-pregnancy and you probably want to feel that. Some people feel the effect as early as 1-2 wks, others may not have any symptoms at all beside missing the period and the belly getting bigger etc. I am sure you have regular follow up with the specialist and you should be fine.

I have had tv u/s after IVF pregnancy at 6 w 5 days (h/r 110), 7 w 4 days (h/r 130) and 8 w 4 days (h/r 140). The h/r seem slow. Is this a concern?
6w4 pregnant (from ivf) with a hCG 4532. The u/s showed a gest sac measuring for correctly for dates and hb 110. Is that reasonable for this stage?
I was told that the embryo implanted low and not by ivf. What does that mean? Is my pregnancy in danger? I'm only 6 wks.
Probably not bad: The implanation location can be concerning, but we are not so hot at telling if it is going to be a problem at 6 weeks unless it is really low (like nearly in the vagina). Get an ultrasound in a few weeks to see where the fetus is and be sure there is a heartbeat. Most of the time, the pregnancy will be fine. If it is truly too low, there will be bleeding and often a miscarriage. ...Read more
I had a failed IVF with a biochemical pregnancy after I got 9 fertilized eggs and 6 4aa blastocyst. I put only 1. I am 33y. Why it could happen?
See below: You should talk to your doctor as they know the details but not all good quality embryos are genetically normal and this could have been one of those. Good news is you have 3 other embryos and you are young! Good luck! ...Read more
