I'm 29, have pcos and am planning on doing IVF with my own frozen eggs. What would my success chances be? How many eggs should I thaw for 5-7 embryos?
Depends: The standard therapy is the freezing of embryos (fertilized eggs). Usually 40% of retrieved eggs result in good embryos. Egg freezing is still experimental and thus you would have to expect that the embryo yield is lower than with standard ivf. If your clinic has experience with egg freezing, then ask what their success is to create embryos and most importantly, a live birth from frozen eggs. ...Read moreSee 5 more doctor answers

Fruits and veggies: What is most important are the things to avoid. Absolutely no alcohol, no smoking cigarettes. If you really need some caffeine then tea would be better than coffee. Two cups of tea in a day is reasonable. Other than that, a diet with emphasis on fruits and vegetables is good. If you are vegetarian then try to get some protein in the form of beans/lentils/tofu. ...Read more
Found a good clinic: Your previous history should not be a factor in an ivf cycle. Success will depend on the experience of the clinic, the skill of the embryologist, quality of the ivf lab and to some extend, whether you are "reproductively young or reproductively old". At 30, you should still have good success rates at an experienced and successful ivf clinic. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Had IVF 2 day transfer of 3 embryos: a 2 cell, a 4 cell, and a 1 cell. The 2 & 4 cell were the highest grade. What is my chance of success? I'm 41.
Ask your doc: Each clinic determines their own success rates. Pregnancy rates vary considerably from clinic to clinic. For example, we always transfer on day 3 and day 5, so I would have trouble giving you a comparable success rate. However, in general, embryos should be 4 cells on day 2 and the smaller embryos are likely of lower quality. The us national average for 41 yo = 12%. Best wishes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Iam 34years and amh test is 0.5 n/g its normal and that has affect on ivf success when I do? And what I can do to a rise of amh Value? Thanks
It Matters: So obviously I only have a little information to go on. There is nothing you can do to raise the value. It is definitely abnormal. If the FSH is also high that is a worse sign. It means that you are likely to have more eggs of lower quality. But all you need is one good egg to have a baby. So it requires a little more consideration of tailoring the cycle to your specific needs ...Read more
