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

Is adoption better than ovum donor baby?

Is adoption better than ovum donor baby?

Adoption: This is a value judgement, of course, adoption is a wonderufl thing. A baby who is already born and needing parents finds loving parents to live with. While time consuming and at tmes expensive, adoption is not complicated. Having a ovum donor baby is complicated and usually expensive, and carries the inherent risk of failure (much greater than adoption). When it works, it's wonderful too! ...Read more

40yrs.Old, pcos, 1st IVF cycle w/genetic testing. Four day 5 embryos - all chromosomally abnormal. Worth another try? 39 eggs were retrieved, 19 fert.

40yrs.Old, pcos, 1st IVF cycle w/genetic testing. Four day 5 embryos - all chromosomally abnormal. Worth another try? 39 eggs were retrieved, 19 fert.

Talk to the prenatal: Genetic counselor at the fertility clinic. Age-related odds are greater than 50% that each of your embryos has aneuploidy, an abnormal number of chromosomes, many of which either won't implant or wion't be carried to term. Age-related risk of having a child with autistic spectrum disorder is also high. Discuss options with your tac doctor to make an informed decision. It's a personal choice. ...Read more

How many days after fertilization does the fertilized egg become a blastocyst? Then embryo? What implants-the blastocyst or embryo?

How many days after fertilization does the fertilized egg become a blastocyst? Then embryo? What implants-the blastocyst or embryo?

The process: As the fertilized egg divides, it is first known as a morula. Approximately 5 days from first fertilization it forms into a hollow ball known as a blastocyst. This blastocyst implants and begins to sort itself out into different layers--the inner group becomes the embryo and the outer layer will work to nourish and protect. At approximately 6-7 weeks from time of fertilization, an embryo begins. ...Read more

What is the pregnancy success rate for frozen blastocyst embryo transfer in 32 yrs old woman?

Varies: Assuming a good office and a good embryo and a normal uterus, if it is a routine embryo then pregnancy rate is about 40-45% and if it had genetic testing and proven to be normal 50-60% ...Read more

3 failed ivf. Blocked tube. Reports ok. Age factor so donor egg. Et cancelled - poor lining. Suggested cryocautery before FET in same cycle?Is it ok?

Cervical cryo?: In the same cycle as an fet? That would not be acceptable in the United States is all i can say. Or are you asking about another form of cryo? ...Read more

How much time/days are required for paternal genome and blastocyst development after embryo transfer?

What?: I'm not sure what your question is. 1. If you had a day 3 embryo transfer it will be a blastocyst in 2 days. If you had a day 5 transfer it is already a blastocyst. 2. Paternal genome is working from day one of combination of the two genomes. The dominant genes regardless of maternal or paternal origin take the lead. Sex development is initiated near the 9th week. ...Read more

18 days past embryo transfer my hCG is 3665 iu/l what does this mean? (3 embryos transffered)

18 days past embryo transfer my hCG is 3665 iu/l what does this mean? (3 embryos transffered)

Well....: first, it certainly means you are pregnant. I suspect that number seems high and multiple pregnancies raise HCG, so, I suspect multiple pregnancies, while more than 3 is theoretically possible, 2 or 3 is what the result will be BUT, in any conception, the risk of very early embryo loss is quite high, so, successful pregnancy likely, multiple is likely and, you WILL need ultrasound in a few weeks ...Read more

Are pgd and ivf(in vitro fertilization) the same thing?

Are pgd and ivf(in vitro fertilization) the same thing?

No but related : Ivf refers to the procedures we use the remove the eggs from your body, fertilize them in a laboratory and transfer them back into the uterus. Pgd refers to testing those embryos for genetic abnormalities before we return them back to your womb. Most ivf is done without pgd but pgd cannot be done without ivf. ...Read more

I have 11mm endometrium & FET is after 7days.It will grow further.What is the maximum endometrium thickness for frozen embryo transfer in IVF ?

Perfect lining: I assume you will start Progesterone replacement soon as part of your protocol before your fet. Once Progesterone begins you will not see much growth (and possibly some thining) of the endometrial lining. Ideally you want the lining above 8 mm and triple line in appearance before start of the progesterone. There is no hard data on maximum thickness but some feel its around 18 mm. ...Read more
