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

I am 41 and just had my embryo transfer on sunday 12/05/13. This is my first IVF cycle. I had 4 embryos transferred on day 3. What are my chances?

Reasonable: The number one predictor of success with ivf is age. The u.S national average is 20% pregnancy & 12% creating a live born baby. The 8% difference is mostly due to miscarriages. You specific odds of achieving pregnancy and ultimately a live born baby depends on many factors, including your fsh level, the cause of infertility, the skill and experience of your physician, skill of embryologist. ...Read more

I have done IVF and I'm in day 12 after embryo transfer. I 'm bleeding and pains comes and goes. How can I know the embryo is falling out? Thank u

I have done IVF and I'm in day 12 after embryo transfer. I 'm bleeding and pains comes and goes. How can I know the embryo is falling out? Thank u

Always a possibility: Honestly, by day 12 after et, you should have already done a pregnancy test and know whether ivf was successful or not. If the test was positive, that is a good sign and sometimes the bleeding is do to losing a twin or a tear in a small cervical or uterine vessel. Unfortunately, these are less likely and ivf probably did not work. The pg test is the key. Good luck and I hope this helps. ...Read more

When calculating the gestational age in IVF pregnancy, should we calculate from LMP or from day of embryo transfer?

When calculating the gestational age in IVF pregnancy, should we calculate from LMP or from day of embryo transfer?

Neither: The transferred embryo is already developed to a certain stage which your IVF facility can tell you. Your LMP is very inexact and is just a guideline in non-IVF pregnancies.
the date of conception is actually around day 14 of your cycle in a natural cycle and prior to the date of transfer in IVF. ...Read more

How to manage colds during IVF cycle? I have embryo transfer tomorrow and I coming down with a cold.

Cold and IVF: If you are having, mild flu like symptoms, there may not be any need to worry about transfer. However, if you are feverish or having severe symptoms, it may be better to freeze the embryos and plan a transfer when you aren't ill. I would talk to your doctor about their recommendations. ...Read more

I have 11mm endometrium & FET is after 7days. It will grow further. What is the maximum endometrium thickness for frozen embryo transfer in IVF?

Perfect lining: I assume you will start Progesterone replacement soon as part of your protocol before your fet. Once Progesterone begins you will not see much growth (and possibly some thining) of the endometrial lining. Ideally you want the lining above 8 mm and triple line in appearance before start of the progesterone. There is no hard data on maximum thickness but some feel its around 18 mm. ...Read more
