Disadvantages Of Embryo Transfer
Embryo transfer (also et, set. Fet, etc) refers to placing one or more human embryo (s) (multi-cell or blastocyst) into the uterus of a woman trying to become pregnant.

Embryo transfer: Embryo transfer (also et, set. Fet, etc) refers to placing one or more human embryo (s) (multi-cell or blastocyst) into the uterus of a woman trying to become pregnant. 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 often differ on specifics.
Ask your doctor: I let my patients go as soon as they feel they want to; you really should ask your ivf doctor what he/she wants you to do.
Several things: You could be hyperstimlated or have cysts or an infection. It is important to let your doctor know.
How high?: Over 100.4 maybe cause for concern, under no. You should ask your ivf doc if you are worried though.
1-2 wk: By bloodwork would be pretty reliable. Otherwise, while 1-2 wk possible with the OTC tests... more reliable by 3-4 wk to believe a negative.
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.See 2 more doctor answers
Embryo transfer: You simply need to eat a healthy diet
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.
12 days after 4 day embryo transfer. Will it be ok to test now. Will I get a true result? Or should I wait for the 14th day for the true result.
Wait: Wait for the 14th day...Get a more detailed answer ›
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!
Any: Generally, fluid is used to cleanse the cervix reducing bacteria and increasing the chances of pregnancy. The fluid can be left after the transfer and is experienced by the patient as leaking fluid. We tell patients that the embryos can no fall out after the transfer. The cervix is making much more mucous under the stimulation of estrogen which can mimic loss of fluid vaginally. Mwww. Jcrm. Org
Of course: There should be no reason that you can not eat chocolate post an embryo transfer. Enjoy and good luck.
PLease call your inf: Infertility doc who did the transfer that doc should have told u in advance what to expect and what to look out for so call that doc tonight, part of that doc's payment is to tell u what to expect and answer any? S or concerns u may have about the procedure.

Walking: I let my patients do it, so long as it is not too long or vigorous; but, your doctor's opinion is the only one that matters for you - call and ask if you haven't done so yet.
Probably not: Generally you would like an embryo transfer to go without any bleeding, cramping or discomfort; however, a few twinges should not generally effect the success of the transfer and subsequent implantation rates. I would suggest that you be on intramuscular Progesterone injections to quiet your uterus and to give you the maximum chance for implantation and a successful pregnancy. Good luck.
After 1 normal cycle: Most doctors will make you wait one or two menstrual cycles after surgery so your lining is fully healed before transferring the embryo. Good luck!
