How accurate are conception dates given at 7 to 8 weeks gestation??

How accurate are conception dates given at 7 to 8 weeks gestation??

Very: If done by ultrasound and correlated two to three times in subsequent weeks, it is probably within 2days. If it is a single measurement, it would be less accurate but still within a 4-5 day margin. As always, depends on the skill of the ultrasonographer. In a fertility practice, like ours, that scans early pregnancy frequently, we find this level of accuracy. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Preg loss of chromosome normal embryo 2 weeks after cardiac activity detection w/ immunosuppressant, anticoagulant treatments. Chance of future success?

Probably good, but: Impossible to say without tests. Early loss is very common and usually does not increase the risk of happening again. You need to be examined and tested to determine if you have a risk for a second (or more) losses. Good luck. ...Read more

Can patient undergo ovulation induction using gonal f (follitropin alfa) while using HRT mainly femoston 2/10 mg?

Can patient undergo ovulation induction using gonal f (follitropin alfa) while using HRT mainly femoston 2/10 mg?

Doesn't make sense: In most cases this would not make much sense, although it could depend on 'why' and 'how' the hrt was being used. Estrogens such as in hrt are sometimes used in stimulation protocols with gonadotropins (such as gonal f, (follitropin alfa) ) an oral progestin would be an unlikely element of most protocols. ...Read more

Is cumulus aided transfer a proven technique to increase implantation success in IVF procedures ? Which clinic in the us utilizes this technique ?

No: This technique, which adds cumulus cells from inside ovarian follicles to the ivf mixture, has not been shown to improve ivf success whatsoever. As ivf centers strive to improve pregnancy rates, if this was shown to help, this simple technique would be widely employed (but it's not). If you're doing ivf, find a center with the highest ongoing success rates you can afford. See us at www.Ivfmd.Com. ...Read more

How risky is attempting pregnancy at the age of 40, mild lupus, antiphospholipid antibody syndrome currently taking coumadin (warfarin)?

How risky is attempting pregnancy at the age of 40, mild lupus, antiphospholipid antibody syndrome currently taking coumadin (warfarin)?

Risks: The risks as you describe them, are many, but they are not insurmountable. First, having a baby at 40 is more of a health hazard than having a baby at 20. This might be the biggest hurdle. Second, any chronic disease must be well controlled. Lupus should be quiet before attempting pregnancy. Third, any medications should be reviewed - you are likely aware that warfarin causes birth defects. ...Read more
