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

Does medications during IVF cycles push the thyroid levels up ?

Does medications during IVF cycles push the thyroid levels up ?

No: Need to know how to interpret labs when someone is on hormones. It's a test tube issue (lab altercation) not a human thyroid change. ...Read more

Progesterone and hCG levels early pregnancy after ivf?

Progesterone and hCG levels early pregnancy after ivf?

Ok: Most ivf clinics only measure HCG levels approximately 9 days after a day 5 embryo transfer. However, some clinics feel that the combination of HCG levels and Progesterone levels have a more predictive value of a good pregnancy than HCG levels alone. Personally, we only measure hcg. Hope this helps and good luck. ...Read more

What should be the e2 and progesterone levels after 4 days post 2 day embryo transplant?

What should be the e2 and progesterone levels after 4 days post 2 day embryo transplant?

Not relevant: Progesterone(p4) levels do not reflect the hormone in the uterus. For example, vaginal p4 gives low blood levels but high endometrial tissue levels. Intramuscular p4 gives great blood levels but lower tissue levels. Both work fine. Most of us do not measure the levels though some docs track them and change the hormone supplements. Talk to your doc for advise. Best wishes. ...Read more

What is success of IVF with amh .45, fsh 7.8, LH 5.6, and 7-9 follicles total at age 28?

What is success of IVF with amh .45, 
fsh 7.8, LH 5.6, and 7-9 follicles total at age 28?

Pregnancy: It is difficult to put a number for what your success may be. These tests also are not predictive of pregnancy rather your response to fertility treatment medications during ivf. Your chances may not be as high as someone your same age with normal ovarian reserve. However, your age places you at a high chance in general. Good luck. ...Read more

Lh 16; FSH 11; progesterone 5.5; prolactine 22
comment annovatory : low progesterone level. I have taken progesterone injection feb, no result yet.

Your question is???: This is a good laboratory snapshot of anovulation, which could be from pcos, obesity, adrenal gland dysfunction, among others. As your Progesterone level falls from the Progesterone shot you just received, you can expect a withdrawal bleed (a period). ...Read more

Can hormone levels rise during puberty?

Can hormone levels rise during puberty?

Yes : There is an elevation of hormone levels during puberty that originate from brain stimulation and end organ response. A new set point in the circulating levels is created from a meager baseline production during childhood. ...Read more

I am 44 with FSH levels of 51.4 and LH levels of 51.9. Can I still undergo IVF treatment?

I am 44 with FSH  levels of 51.4 and LH levels of 51.9. Can I still undergo IVF treatment?

High FSH/LH: These levels indicate very low ovarian function and are usually seen only in menopause. This would indicate that the fertility specialists would have a difficult or impossible time in retrieving any eggs from your ovaries. Donor eggs are a possibility, but this requires exceptional efforts to ready your uterine lining for implantation. Consult an IVF specialist. They will have the answers. ...Read more

Are my hormone levels ok? Lh serum-9.7; fsh-7.1; estradiol-991; progesterone-1.9. All done on 12 day of cycle. Thyroid is hyper 3-4 months every year

Depends: The doctor that ordered these tests had a plan in mind with what to do with the information they provide as they were ordered based on your history and symptoms that you discussed with your doctor. You should schedule an appointment to sit down with your provider to go over the results and how they affect your health issues. ...Read more

What hormones are used during IVF (in-vitro fertilization)?

What hormones are used during IVF (in-vitro fertilization)?

IVF: An unusual question at your age. Surely if you are seeing an obstetrician for IVF, that doctor would be explaining that to you? If you are asking on behalf of someone else, she too must discuss this with her obstetrician. There should be little, if anything, to be concerned about. ...Read more

Fsh level 7.5, LH level 11, progesterone level 2.5, and thyroid level 1.8. Are all these normal? 16th day of cycle. Irregular periods.

Fsh level 7.5, LH level 11, progesterone level 2.5, and thyroid level 1.8. Are all these normal? 16th day of cycle. Irregular periods.

Sounds like PCOS: These levels show you have not ovulated by day 16 due to the lower progesterone. Typically throughout the month the fsh is higher than the lh. The lh goes up just before ovulation to trigger the release of the egg. This is what on ovulation predictor kit is checking for. You could be seeing the lh surge just before ovulation which could happen as late as day 20, or it could be high b/c of pcos. ...Read more

At this point: you do not need a trigger shot: the progesterone of 8 indicates you already ovulated a few days ago, so the trigger will not do anything useful at this point. Congratulations. ...Read more

Did stopping one lupronshot and 4 cyclogest (progesterone) resulted in my chemical pregnancy during 2ww in my icsi cycle?

No: Miscarriages occur due to genetic issues during fertilization not because of something the mother does. On your next round of ivf though I do recommend you follow your doctors advice exactly as directed to increase your chances of success. ...Read more
