I'm going in for my frozen embryo transfer? Any difference from fresh et?

I'm going in for my frozen embryo transfer? Any difference from fresh et?

Maybe: At our clinic, we have seen better success rates with a frozen embryo transfer, as opposed to a fresh transfer, because you do not want to put embryos back in a physiologically overstimulated cycle that you got them from. We are seeing up to a 30% higher pregnancy rate in FET over fresh transfers. Hope this helps. Good luck. ...Read more

Embryo Transfer (Definition)

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 ...Read more

Yes: It is a little too soon to tell. If it were positive this early it would likely be multiple pregnancy. You really need 2 more days to know

5 day blastocyst fresh embryo transfer and estrogen is elevated around 3000 and progesterone around 240 with no supplementation. What are it effects?

5 day blastocyst fresh embryo transfer and estrogen is elevated around 3000 and progesterone around 240 with no supplementation. What are it effects?

Could be several: An estrogen that high means you responded quite well to infertility meds. You will need to be careful of hyperstimulation syndrome where you can get:
1. Excessive bloating
2. Nausea
3. Emesis
4. Weight gain
be on the look out for rapid weight gain! The Progesterone that high is a value not routinely obtained. Values above 20 are considered normal. ...Read more

What is pgd? How does it help improve chances in an embryo transfer?

What is pgd? How does it help improve chances in an embryo transfer?

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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!

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! ...Read more

Whit fluid after embryo transfer normal?

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 ...Read more

Twinges after embryo transfer, should I be concerned?

Twinges after embryo transfer, should I be concerned?

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. ...Read more
