One cycle of in vitro fertilization ...Read more

Mostly like natural: I'm not certain I understand what you're asking, but pregnancy symptoms are related to the pregnancy not how you got that way.

What is the treatment for IVF pregnancy?

See below: Not sure what you are asking. In order to get pregnanct by ivf you usually take a series of daily injections to stimulate the ovaries to produce multiple eggs. When the eggs are mature they are removed and placed in a dish with the sperm. 3-5 days later they are put back into the uterus. The pregnancy rate depends most on the woman's age. Pregnancy after is treated like a regular pregnancy. ...Read more

Is Primolut depot safe in early IVF pregnancy to stop brown bleeding. Seems controversial.?

Unusual choice: It would be an odd choice of treatment, at least in the us. Although it's actions are very similar to native progesterone, I agree I would consider its use controversial. Discuss your concern again with your doctor, for sure. ...Read more

I'm 28 with an IVF pregnancy. My blood work came back with a high chance of down syndrome. Someone said it might be from the ivf?

Not from ivf: Down syndrome is a chromosome defect (trisomy or translocation). It is usually sporatic without cause. It can be familial or related to maternal age. The ivf process does not cause this defect, but the ovum and sperm used may already have the defect. Direct evaluation of fetal cell dna will be necessary to confirm the diagnosis. ...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

Early Pregnancy: Is a really difficult time, Esp for IVF patients. Even in general population, spontaneous pregnancy loss is 1 in 5 or even as high as 1 in 4 pregnancies. Once you make it to 8 weeks with a live embryo, the loss rates decline to about 3%

I was do IVF on17/3/2014, the pregnancy test -ve. Till now the cycle will not come. What can I do?

Repeat the test: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. ...Read more

I am finishing up my IVF and I have taking a pregnancy test even though I know it's yo early to tell the pregnancy test was positive. Is this possible?

Trigger shot gave +: The first pregnancy test you took, if too soon after the embryo transfer, was probably positive from the HCG 'trigger shot' that you took before your egg retrieval (hcg is pregnancy hormone). If you had a blastocyst-stage embryo transfer, wait 9 days post transfer before taking a pregnancy test. Talk to your clinic. Best wishes. ...Read more

Can you have negative pregnancy results after IVF and later turned positive?

Yes: If you did a urine pregnancy test, there are a some amount of false negatives, meaning you are pregnant but the test is still shows negative. If you waited some time, then the urine test could then be positive. Because of this, I only do blood pregnancy tests because of "what is at stake" and you "hate" to be wrong. Hope this helps. ...Read more

How do I cope with a failed cycle in ivf? When do I try again? Is it likely pregnancy will be achieved the second time round?

Follow Up Consult: Without knowing the context of your need for ivf and the parameters surrounding its provision, it's hard to tell you anything about likelihood of pregnancy the 2nd time around. I would encourage you to speak to your provider about the prognostics of a 2nd try. It's expensive, time consuming, and sometimes heartbreaking, but you'll otherwise always wonder about this and you need closure. ...Read more
