Can you get pregnant naturally after cancelled IVF cycle?

Can you get pregnant naturally after cancelled IVF cycle?

Genrally not: There is always the chance that if you received HCG trigger shot and you released some eggs, there is the possibility that pregnancy could occur. However, that would probably be unlikely since you are doing ivf since you are having trouble conceiving. No harm in trying. Hope this helps. ...Read more

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

When can one try ivf after undergoing Myomectomy?

When can one try ivf after undergoing Myomectomy?

Talk to surgeon: You need to ask your myomectomy surgeon as he/she will know how deeply into the uterine musculature the cuts were done to remove the fibroid(s).

6y no baby: I would say after 6y of trying that you should have IVF. IUI can be tried, but less likely to work. You state you have been pregnant before, but if you can't sustain pregnancy pregnancy due to uterine factors, then your only option may be surrogate. See a fertility specialist regarding all these possibilities. ...Read more

5 failed IUI with letrozole, mild endo removed by laparoscopy, one miscarriage but conceived naturally after 2 yrs. IVF next or Iui with injectables?

No more IUI: Since you've failed 5 IUIs, it is no longer a good option for you, especially for someone with endometriosis. One reason patients with endometriosis not able to conceive naturally, is because the endometriosis will cause pelvic adhesion and tubal dysfunction. IVF is a much better option. If you are afraid of using drugs, you may choose natural cycle IVF or mild stimulation IVF. ...Read more

Does fertilization finish before the conceive date of pregnancy?

Does fertilization finish before the conceive date of pregnancy?

Yes: Fertilization is conception. Therefore, a woman whose egg has finished being fertilized has finished conceiving. She has a one-celled "baby" which is just a fertilized egg. It splits into 2 cells, then 4 cells, then 8 cells, etc... No woman knows exactly when she conceives, in a natural pregnancy. How would she know? She can neither see it or feel it. Conception dates are therefore only estimates. ...Read more

IVF egg removal. 32 follicles only 7 eggs retrieved. Did Lupron (leuprolide) trigger and Hcg. Why so few?

IVF egg removal. 32 follicles only 7 eggs retrieved. Did Lupron (leuprolide) trigger and Hcg. Why so few?

Ask your doc: Many possibilities: incorrect timing (too early OR too late) or administration of hCG, bad batch of hCG, surgeon had difficulty with TVA, maybe only 7 mature follicles and the others were mid-to-small...your doctor and your embryology team are only ones who can answer what happened. Good luck with the 7, sounds good! ...Read more

Went to a fertility spec.he said that he will do a hyestoscopy test to see what's going on and that he dont suggest IVF because he feel like I'm om?

Possible blocked tub: A hysteroscopy tells whether the fallopian tubes which travel from the uterus to the ovaries are open. You have had 3 prior pregnancies. So at least in the past they were open. A sometime consequence of Pelvic Inflammatory Disease is that it can scar the tubes and the eggs cannot travel from the ovary down to the womb and implant and grow. It is OK to check if that is the case. If your tubes ...Read more
