Sonogram (Definition)

An ultraound, also known as a sonogram, is a painless and relatively inexpensive imaging test that utilizes sound waves instead of ionizing radiation. There are no side effects. Ultrasound can give us two-dimensional, and in some applications three-dimensional, images of structures and organs in virtually any part of the body. In addition to diagnostic uses, such as evaluating abnormalities in the abdomen, pelvis, and breast, ultrasounds are commonly used to guide needle and catheter placement in a variety of surgical ...Read more

Ultrasound shows one IVF twin 4 days behind 9 week scan. Both had strong heart beats. When to worry?

Not to worry.: I can tell this is a highly desired and anticipated pregnancy and offer you my congratulation on the success thus far. As you know, things can still go wrong as this is a very high-risk pregnancy, so see a maternal-fetal medicine specialist as soon as possible and get information on twin-to-twin-transfusion syndrome and genetic counseling. Non-invasive prenatal genetic testing is now available. ...Read more

My first hCG 697, 580, 2250, 1200, 1750. I know we gonna lose the baby. But don't understand why. I'm six weeks IVF procedure.?

Genetics: There are 2 main reasons why ivf can fail. One is a problem with the uterus. A fibroid, polyp, scar tissue, or an inadequate thickening of the uterine lining. Assuming that is not the case, the most likely reason is a genetically abnormal egg. At age 39, almost half of all eggs are genetically abnormal. When that occurs and a pregnancy implants there is a 90% chance of a miscarriage. ...Read more

Hi. If my wife and I do IUI or IVF for our first child, will we have to do IUI or IVF if we decide to have a second child? My wife is 32 and i'm 34.

Hi.  If my wife and I do IUI or IVF for our first child, will we have to do IUI or IVF if we decide to have a second child?  My wife is 32 and i'm 34.

It's a choice?: 6 cycles of IUI on injectable medications costs around the same as one cycle of ivf. One takes 6+ months and ivf takes 6 weeks. Here is the "rub". 6 cycles of IUI is not as successful as 1 cycle of ivf. So it is a choice. By doing iui, you "gamble" that it works in 2-3 attempts and save money; but if not, than ultimately it costs more because when IUI does not work, you have to go to ivf. ...Read more
