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. During ivf mature eggs are retrieved from the ovaries and fertilized by sperm in a lab. A few days later, the fertilized egg (embryo) or eggs are implanted into the uterus. One cycle of in vitro fertilization ...Read more
Nope: No relationship, just a crazy myth.Get a more detailed answer ›
Ihave14,21 balanced translocation, did egg retrieval ystrday in IVF pgd process.16eggs got fertilized.Is it good number for pgd to find normal embryos?
Can sperm be frozen to be used with frozen eggs (w/o fertilizing an egg before egg is frozen)? If so, can frozen sperm be shipped for storage w/ egg?
Can using PESA method retrieve enough sperms to fertilize egg using ivf without going through ICSI?
No but related : Ivf refers to the procedures we use the remove the eggs from your body, fertilize them in a laboratory and transfer them back into the uterus. Pgd refers to testing those embryos for genetic abnormalities before we return them back to your womb. Most ivf is done without pgd but pgd cannot be done without ivf. ...Read more
How many artificial inseminations (IUI) are usually recommended before trying in vitro fertilization?
In an embryology lab: The eggs go from the body directly into the IVF lab. Today, the lab is specially designed for air handling, lighting and temperature to support embryo growth. The embryos are cultured for 3-6 days before transfer into the uterus. Embryos receive a score for implantation potential. Sometimes checked for the number of chromosomes and even time-lapse photography. # transferred based on age&quality ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Unlikely: You mean natural cycle frozen embryo transfer with HCG used to trigger ovulation. There is no evidence that using HCG has additional benefits compared to awaiting natural lh surge and spontaneous ovulation. Hcg injection though may help with timing of frozen embryo transfer as compared to awaiting lh surge which may be missed or happen in an inconvenient day. ...Read more

Frozen sperm. Fresh eggs. Both proven donors. Nulligravid 42 yo woman. Odds of conception after et with 3?
Very good: The odds are excellent as long as all other aspects of your workup have been negative. Pregnancy rate with 2 embryos can give a 70% chance. Replacing 3 embryos in this situation would not be suggested as long as the egg donor was 21-28. Most donors are not accepted over 30. The risk of triplets is quite high and would cause significant obstetrical issues such as prematurity, decreased fetal size.. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
40yrs.Old, pcos, 1st IVF cycle w/genetic testing. Four day 5 embryos - all chromosomally abnormal. Worth another try? 39 eggs were retrieved, 19 fert.
Talk to the prenatal: Genetic counselor at the fertility clinic. Age-related odds are greater than 50% that each of your embryos has aneuploidy, an abnormal number of chromosomes, many of which either won't implant or wion't be carried to term. Age-related risk of having a child with autistic spectrum disorder is also high. Discuss options with your tac doctor to make an informed decision. It's a personal choice. ...Read more
No!: That's too early for a reliable test, ask your ivf doctor when he/she wants the test. ...Read more
Have you ever heard of someone thawing out day 3 frozen embryos, growing them out to blastocyst, doing pgd, re freezing, then unfreezing for transfer?
Healthtap Prime: This is a very specific question requiring a high level of expertise. I recommend using Healthtap Prime to speak with a specialist in this area. I suggest Dr. Colin Smikle in California. https://www.healthtap.com/#experts/11885726-dr-collin-smikle ...Read more

IVF egg removal. 32 follicles only 7 eggs retrieved. Did Lupron (leuprolide) trigger and Hcg. Why so few?
Ask your doc: Many possibilities: incorrect timing (too early OR too late) or administration of hCG, bad batch of hCG, surgeon had difficulty with TVA, maybe only 7 mature follicles and the others were mid-to-small...your doctor and your embryology team are only ones who can answer what happened. Good luck with the 7, sounds good! ...Read more
Probably not: You could always donate your embryos to another couple anonymously or it can even be a known situation. But, honestly, most couples needing donor embryos will choose younger embryos and it would not be in their best interest to pay for half your ivf to get 39+ year old embryos. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Freezing is to mean turning liquid into solid form by lowering the temperature. Water begins to freeze at 32 degree f or 0 degree celsius. Freezing reduces the movement of the substance/object--solid. Also commonly used in daily communication--police says to a perpetraitor "freeze" and hopefully the bad boy/girl stays solid/still (just for fun :-)). Have ...Read more
