Is herpes testing required for ivf?

Is herpes testing required for ivf?

Generally not: Some clinics will test herpes 1 and 2 prior to doing ivf. We do not because it does not effect the procedure or outcome of ivf. It does however effect the mode of delivery and if you have an active genital herpes infection then delivery would need to be by c/s. Hope this helps. ...Read more

I had IVF 16 days before today i gave blood for testing i will get my report 3 days later meanwhile can I do home urine test?

Yes: If you had an embryo transfer (et) 16 days ago then a home pregnancy test should be positive by now. To be safe, do not stop any of your medications until your dr has given you the results of the blood test - some healthy pregnancies have low HCG levels at the start, which can give you a positive blood pregnancy test with a negative urine pregnancy test. ...Read more

Can comprehensive chromosome screening (CCS) in IVF screen for (1) partial  trisomy, (2) unbalanced translocation, and (3) balanced translocation? Does testing parental karyotyping before CCS help?

Test for Aneuploidy: Aneuploidy is the term used to describe any embryo with either too many or too few chromosomes. It is the cause of greater than 60% of miscarriages, as well as the most likely reason that patients do not get pregnant from an IVF cycle. The purpose of CCS is to analyze, select and transfer only embryos that do not have abnormalities in their number of chromosomes. A genetic consult is needed; ...Read more

Talk to the prenatal: Genetic counselor at the fertility clinic.

Have an evaluation: Often the stress of an ivf cycle or any fertility treatment can effect normal hormone production, resulting in delayed ovulation, and a late or missed period. An ultrasound would re-assure you that this is the case. Cramps may represent an impending menstrual flow. The gas is a red- herring that far from your ivf cycle. ...Read more

I just had blood tests for before I start IVF that tested for HIV hepatitis, rubella, diabetes etc what if I was positive?

It depends: Some illnesses dramatically increase the risk of a miscarriage or a deformed baby. Some illness can be managed by avoiding a vaginal delivery. If you are going to spend a small fortune on ivf and the doc is going to spend a lot of time getting your pregnant, i think you both would like to have as much info as possible before you start. ...Read more
