Be patient: Please be patient and wait for your pregnancy test tomorrow. Small spotting is extremely common and does not tell you 'yes' or 'no.' keep the test tomorrow, try not to worry, and good luck. ...Read more

Repeat Ultrasound: After IVF, one can see several different scenarios. It is best to wait and repeat the ultrasound. Do not feel anything is wrong till a repeat ultrasound is done. Early ultrasounds can be confusing. sometimes, twin pregnancies happen even with 1 blastocyst transfer as the blastocyst can divide. However, growth discrepancy can happen and one may survive and the other may not. Good Luck! ...Read more

Would you recommend an IVF over an tubal ligation three years before I turn 40?

YES!!: Sorry about the caps, but want to be clear. If IVF is available to you, it is still very successful at 37 y.o. Over age 36 tubal reversal is not to be recommended unless IVF is not an option. Good wishes. ...Read more

I have got endometriosis. I have been trying for baby for last three years but no luck. My doctor said that I might need IVF. I just wana know is ther?

Try IUI first: First of all, if your husband has provided a normal sperm analysis, the MD should eradicate as much of the existing endometrial implants as possible before embarking on GnRh agonist suppression medication for up to 6 months. Secondly, IUI (Intra uterine insemination) is less expensive than IVF as long as your Fallopian tubes are open. A Fertility GYN MD can be of immense help in this venture. ...Read more
