I have 11mm endometrium & FET is after 7days. It will grow further. What is the maximum endometrium thickness for frozen embryo transfer in IVF?

Perfect lining: I assume you will start Progesterone replacement soon as part of your protocol before your fet. Once Progesterone begins you will not see much growth (and possibly some thining) of the endometrial lining. Ideally you want the lining above 8 mm and triple line in appearance before start of the progesterone. There is no hard data on maximum thickness but some feel its around 18 mm. ...Read more

How to manage colds during IVF cycle? I have embryo transfer tomorrow and I coming down with a cold.

Cold and IVF: If you are having, mild flu like symptoms, there may not be any need to worry about transfer.

Success rate of day 3 versus day 5 embryo transfer for IVF. Is one method more successful than the other?

Day 5 allows transfer of fewer embryos (less risk of multiples) while keeping rates at the sam level.

I am 41 and just had my embryo transfer on sunday 12/05/13. This is my first IVF cycle. I had 4 embryos transferred on day 3. What are my chances?

Reasonable: The number one predictor of success with ivf is age. The u.S national average is 20% pregnancy & 12% creating a live born baby. The 8% difference is mostly due to miscarriages. You specific odds of achieving pregnancy and ultimately a live born baby depends on many factors, including your fsh level, the cause of infertility, the skill and experience of your physician, skill of embryologist. ...Read more

I have done IVF and I'm in day 12 after embryo transfer. I 'm bleeding and pains comes and goes. How can I know the embryo is falling out? Thank u

Always a possibility: Honestly, by day 12 after et, you should have already done a pregnancy test and know whether ivf was successful or not. If the test was positive, that is a good sign and sometimes the bleeding is do to losing a twin or a tear in a small cervical or uterine vessel. Unfortunately, these are less likely and ivf probably did not work. The pg test is the key. Good luck and I hope this helps. ...Read more

If chances of conception increase in 2 embryo transfer IVF Why doc recomend single embryo? What are risks of 2 embryo apart from twins?

If chances of conception increase in 2 embryo transfer IVF Why doc recomend single embryo? What are risks of 2 embryo apart from twins?

It's all about twins: Twins are a little bit trickier pregnancy. Twinning with 2 embryos is as high as 20-30%. In the US the ASRM allows 1 or 2 embryos in a 29 year old woman, but recommends only one. Personally I believe this is patient's choice and do NOT recommend 1 vs. 2, but that's me. Your info says you are 29 and in the UK? I do not know the UK standard of care but the science is the same. Best wishes! ...Read more
