When the surgical pathology comes back, chemo will be planned. ...Read more

Hope this helps. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Frozen sperm. Fresh eggs. Both proven donors. Nulligravid 42 yo woman. Odds of conception after et with 3?

Replacing 3 embryos in this situation would not be suggested as long as the egg donor was 21-28. Most donors are not accepted over 30. The risk of triplets is quite high and would cause significant obstetrical issues such as prematurity, decreased fetal size.. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
