How do they do egg retrieval for ivf, do you need to be cut open?

Ivf: My wife had this done. Egg retrieval is intravaginal. You take a bunch of meds like braville and menopur. Then you get a shot of Pregnyl for maturation on of the follices.

What are possible side effects of IVF egg retrieval?

What are possible side effects of IVF egg retrieval?

Do you mean: Side effects or risks? An egg retrieval is a procedure so there really are not 'side effects, ' there are results: belly soreness, feeling tired, crampy feeling, brief nausea are all possible and common. Do you mean risks? Risks are very low but can include bleeding, infection, and failure to recover eggs; discuss these with your own ivf doctor and good luck.

What drug is given in the gluteus muscle before egg retrieval for ivf?

What drug is given in the gluteus muscle before egg retrieval for ivf?

Likely hCG: Sounds like a purified (non-recombinant) form of hcg: sometimes trade name pregnyl, profasi in the us. If this doesn't sound right you'd do best to ask your ivf doc.

I have started estrogen patches today 9 days after an egg retrieval and 6 days after a egg transfer IVF I am experiencing spotting is this a normal si?

Yes: It is not uncommon for a patient to have spotting when straying hormonal treatment. Usually this will resolve with time. If you are cramping and spotting then something else could be occurring. Please see your doctor.

I am undergo egg retrieval (mini-ivf).FET vl schedule after 3 month but I will get only one period before FET. Is it ok? How will be my Implantion?

Confirm protocol: It sounds like you have seen a fertility physician already and that a individualized care plan has already been created. I would schedule a follow up visit with that doctor to go over the details of the plan and make sure you are comfortable.

I am 25.i am undergo Mini -ivf traetment. Today cd6 the u/s and blood work says growing slowing. Is everything ok? Will doctor do egg retrieval on cd 14

Mini IVF: CD 6 is too early to say whether your cycle will be successful, but don't be discouraged if things ar not login "fast" - what's important is the quality of the egg when it is retrieved. Impossible to say whether you "will" or "won't" be retrieved on CD 14, but if the follicle grows normally it will likely be close dot then. Good wishes.

I was in the process of IVF and after egg retrieval my eggs did not fertilize. When should my period start? I was not on progesterone.

I was in the process of IVF and after egg retrieval my eggs did not fertilize. When should my period start? I was not on progesterone.

Sooner: Usually the menstrual cycle may start sooner after an egg retrieval without Progesterone support. If you don't start then do a pregnancy test. Especially if you had intercourse prior to the egg retrieval.

I'm told that lupron (leuprolide) trigger prevents ohss. Why am I still in sharp pains 60hrs post IVF egg retrieval? Is it pms? Trigger e2 4200, 32 eggs retrieved.

PLEASE: Call your ivf doc about this, do not spend time online. Complications following egg retrieval are uncommon but can be serious; and nothing absolutely predicts ohss but peak e2 of 4200 is definitely risky. Your ivf doctor wants to hear from you!

Was under sedation with propofol for IVF egg retrieval. Was given antibiotic cefuroxime and novalgin for pain. Started to cough. They said it was like an asthma attack. Antibiotic allergic reaction?

Was under sedation with propofol for IVF egg retrieval. Was given antibiotic cefuroxime and novalgin for pain. Started to cough. They said it was like an asthma attack. Antibiotic allergic reaction?

Novalgin (Metamizole): Metamizole was banned in usa in 1977 due to risk of agranulocytosis and you are in california. It may be reaction to anesthesia or novalgin wherever you were given this drug (metamizole) it is unlikely a reaction to antibiotics. If it ever happens again check with your doctor. Do not take novalgin while you are pregnant.

Tip: Unfortunately, I can't answer the question for you. However, I do have a suggestion. If you lab values in your inquiry, it's always helpful to also include normal ranges, whenever possible and relevant.

What if positive result after 15 days of egg transfer through ivf?

Pregnant: If you have a positive pregnancy test 15 days after embryo transfer it means you are pregnant. Your ivf doctor will probably follow beta HCG levels to make sure they are rising properly and then later check ultrasounds.

After how many days of egg transfer through IVF result is confirmed?

After how many days of egg transfer through IVF result is confirmed?

About 11-14: Your doctor should have you scheduled for a pregnancy test. Generally we test about 14-16 days after egg retrieval, which may be 11-15 days after transfer depending on what day the transfer occurs.

When bleeding occurs, can 1 of the 2 eggs survive in IVF after transfer?

Rare: As you get older, IVF success rates are much lower. Risk of miscarriage and birth defects increase. Maybe you can try again and if it doe snot work consider, donor egg or adoption. Good Luck.
