I weigh 255pounds and I had an ectopic preg right tube removed. I'm goin for IVF how much weight do I need to lose minimum?
I would ask yr doc: Ivf can be stressful and there is an inclination to get obsessed with details. I'm not saying that's you and it is important to be informed. It sounds like you need reassurance of your level but there can be some fluctuations and i'm not sure there is a best level. It is likely a range and one reason to check it is so that it isnt too high, pointing to ovarian hyper stimulation. Good luck. ...Read more

My first hCG 697, 580, 2250, 1200, 1750. I know we gonna lose the baby. But don't understand why. I'm six weeks IVF procedure.?
Less healthy embryo: So sorry for you. Your quants aren't encouraging. It's hard to say for sure but the embryo "quality" is very important in their survival. Your age may be a factor :-( as we age our remaining eggs are less "healthy", and your husbands sperm may have an impact, though i don't know all the details.

What's your advice to eat after IVF to garantee better result and do you recommend a normal lifestyle or is it better to relax during this period?
Normal Balanced Life: Just be normal; eat healthy, take breaks at work and rest, take it easy at home and try to have a stress free life. Usually just a day or two rest after the embryo transfer is more than enough. At our center we do not recommend sex or lifting above 20 lbs until after the pregnancy test is performed (there is no medical evidence that this improves pregnancy rates but we recommend anyway). ...Read more
