Ivf (Definition)

In vitro fertilization is an assisted reproductive technology. Ivf is a procedure used to treat fertility problems and assist with the conception of a child.

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

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

Need more space: to give the full answer. Short answer: they're the same, it depends on the embryo number and embryo quality. Day 5 allows transfer of fewer embryos (less risk of multiples) while keeping rates at the sam level. Could write a book about this, please consult with your MD or could do an online consult full details. Your doc is always first choice! Good wishes. ...Read more

Not necessarily : Check with your ivf doctor, and make sure you're taking your medicines (progesterone ?) correctly. Do nothing anyone else says before checking with him/her. ...Read more

Ivf stimulation going on. Day 2 of period follicles 22, estrogen 103. Day 3 estrogen 202 (after 150 menopur 150 gonal f). Is this average, good, low?

Ivf stimulation going on. Day 2 of period follicles 22, estrogen 103. Day 3 estrogen 202 (after 150 menopur 150 gonal f). Is this average, good, low?

Good: Are you saying they measured 22 different follicles? That's a lot. You're very early on in the process so it's hard to predict. At the very least though you're average to above average. They will need to watch for ovarian hyperstimulation if you have that many follicles. They may need to decrease your dose in the near future. Most women use stimulation meds for 10-12 days. ...Read more

I am using 2 donors this cycle, inseminating each every other day, staggering days with each one. IE Donor 1 on days 1,3, 5, etc. Is this alright?

I am using 2 donors this cycle, inseminating each every other day, staggering days with each one. IE Donor 1 on days 1,3, 5, etc. Is this alright?

No! Not really: I'm sorry, this "sounds like" a good idea but it is not - this actually increases the chance of polyspermy (egg fertilized by more than one sperm) - which will not be a viable pregnancy. It might work but NOT a good idea. A fertility specialist can help you sort this thru, it would be worth talking with an expert. Good wishes! ...Read more

What is the IUI success rate with 2 follicles and donor sperm? 2 IUIs performed, one Sat. right before eggs released and one Sun. after eggs released

What is the IUI success rate with 2 follicles and donor sperm? 2 IUIs performed, one Sat. right before eggs released and one Sun. after eggs released

Lots of factors: There are a lot of factors that go into IUI success. The sperm quality, the egg quality, the age of the patient, the lining of the uterus, medical issues and others. Your doctor must have felt you were a good candidate. In about 10-14 days you are likely scheduled for a pregnancy test to determine if it was successful. Until then you have the challenge of waiting patiently. ...Read more

On buserelin 18 aug , menopur stimulation .Egg collection 7th oct blastocyst transfer on 13th oct when would period be due?

IVF cycles: Due to the nature of ivf the menstrual cycle is anything but regular. Following egg collection women are put on Progesterone to force the body to "think" it is pregnant. The Progesterone can prevent a period even if implantation is not successful. Ivf doctors generally do a pregnancy test ~1.5 weeks after blastocyst transfer. ...Read more

Today is day 10 after day 3 embryo transfer one 6 & 7 cell. I am 31. Tuck an early hpt 10 miu and is negative. Does that mean i'm not pregnant?

No!: You are testing too early with a d3 transfer, very rarely will you get a reliable positive if you test early. Keep the pregnancy test your ivf doc scheduled you for, do not change any medicines you are on, and good luck! ...Read more

Did a 4 day FET with 2 embryos. Hcg 13 days after transfer was 1389 e2 - 2302 progesterone-17.4. I've been on endomentrin since before fet. Too low?

Did a 4 day FET with 2 embryos. Hcg 13 days after transfer was 1389 e2 - 2302 progesterone-17.4. I've been on endomentrin  since before fet. Too low?

No: Why did you do a day 4 transfer? That is very odd. Progesterone levels are not very good to predict pregnancy outcome and should not be monitored. Any level above 2.5 ng/ml is normal. Endometrium will give more than enough progesterone. ...Read more
