Is it possible to use embryos which are between 2-8 cells on day 5. In other words they haven't developed to morula or blastocyst stage. I am finding?

Is it possible to use embryos which are between 2-8 cells on day 5. In other words they haven't developed to morula or blastocyst stage. I am finding?

Possible but.....: Unfortunately, it sounds like the embryos have not developed well. A day three embryo typically has between 6-10 cells. By the time day 5 or 6 is reached, the blastocyst should have hundreds of cells. The embryos you are describing have basically stopped growing around day 2 or 3. They have a very low chance for a successful pregnancy. Sorry about that. ...Read more

What is the morula?

An embryo stage: A fertilized egg is a zygote. Then it grows (by the third day after fertilization) to the embryo stage. On day 4 of growth it's called a morula, and on the fifth day it's called a blastocyst. Hope this helps! ...Read more

Had IVF 2 day transfer of 3 embryos: a 2 cell, a 4 cell, and a 1 cell. The 2 & 4 cell were the highest grade. What is my chance of success? I'm 41.

Had IVF 2 day transfer of 3 embryos: a 2 cell, a 4 cell, and a 1 cell. The 2 & 4 cell were the highest grade. What is my chance of success? I'm 41.

Ask your doc: Each clinic determines their own success rates. Pregnancy rates vary considerably from clinic to clinic. For example, we always transfer on day 3 and day 5, so I would have trouble giving you a comparable success rate. However, in general, embryos should be 4 cells on day 2 and the smaller embryos are likely of lower quality. The us national average for 41 yo = 12%. Best wishes. ...Read more

Success rate of day 3 versus day 5 embryo transfer for IVF. Is one method more successful than the other?

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

What is the success rate for 1st IVF with the best possible embryo? We did a day 5 blastocyst transfer. My wife is 35 years old. 6 failed IUIs

What is the success rate for 1st IVF with the best possible embryo? We did a day 5 blastocyst transfer. My wife is 35 years old. 6 failed IUIs

It depends: It depends on the University Center or MD's office at which the IVF was done. Most results are reported as 3 or 6 month cycles for conception. Some Centers have even reported conception rates when no viable products can be obtained rather than live baby rates. So, this was a question that you should have asked your provider BEFORE embarking on IVF. ...Read more

I have BV & its recurring. I've been trying to get pregnant for the last five months with know success. Why can't I get pregnant?

I have BV & its recurring. I've been trying to get pregnant for the last five months with know success. Why can't I get pregnant?

Fertility expert: Your recurrent BV may be due to your partner recolonizing your vagina with organisms resident on his penis. Have him treated topically to reduce this. You are not likely to have a significant reason to be evaluated by a fertility expert until you have tried without results for one year. Would start counting once your BV has cleared. ...Read more

I have pcos and I will be going for ovarian drilling soon after five cycles of clomid (clomiphene). What is the success rate for pregnancy with this procedure?

I have pcos and I will be going for ovarian drilling soon after five cycles of clomid (clomiphene). What is the success rate for pregnancy with this procedure?

Drilling: In your situation, your two options are ovarian drilling or gonadotropin therapy (somewhat similar to ivf therapies). These two have similar pregnancy rates - about 55% success over 6 months, although some studies show success rates as low as 20%. Gonadotropin therapy is more time intensive and more expensive, but does not require surgery. Drilling might hasten menopause- but not definitely proven. ...Read more

Is cumulus aided transfer a proven technique to increase implantation success in IVF procedures? Which clinic in the us utilizes this technique?

No: This technique, which adds cumulus cells from inside ovarian follicles to the ivf mixture, has not been shown to improve ivf success whatsoever. As ivf centers strive to improve pregnancy rates, if this was shown to help, this simple technique would be widely employed (but it's not). If you're doing ivf, find a center with the highest ongoing success rates you can afford. See us at www. Ivfmd. Com. ...Read more

Ovulation = day #11: Ovulation normally occurs 14 days prior to the next period. Recommend starting to have intercourse a few days prior to ovulation & at ovulation (possibly a couple of days after).

What's success rate of a SET of a day 6 blast in a 37 yr old. I've had 3 SET, only one took with miscarriage at 8 weeks. Deciding between SET or 2?

Specific case: This is a highly specific question where the answer will depend on a number of variables unique to an individual. Each case would need to be analyzed by an infertility doctor. The age, egg quality, embryo status and other factors would go into the decision. It will be important to meet with your specialist and go over all of these details ...Read more

Anti arrhythmic j: Consider time released magnesium. I use a twice plus dosage. Monitor in blood with potassium levels. Few accurate blood tests are available since nearly all magnesium in body is inside the cells.

Relatively very safe with nerve stabilizing effects noted in the entire body i.e. Antiseizure effects, cardiac effects to stabilize any form of irregular heart beats, a major cause of sudden death. ...Read more

Is 8 a low number for the result of a day-21 progesterone test if I'm trying to conceive w/o success

Is 8 a low number for the result of a day-21 progesterone test if I'm trying to conceive w/o success

Progesterone varies: Progesterone levels bounce around throughout the day, depending on day of the cycle and pituitary stimulating hormones.

While a Progesterone level of 8 is on the low side, it is usually enough to support a pregnancy, and might well have been higher if retested a few hours later.

We don't find Progesterone levels to be very helpful in planning fertility treatment. ...Read more

I am on Clomid (clomiphene) 50mg (day 3-7). Age 29. What are the chances of success in first month of clomid (clomiphene). Is there any chance of twins?

I am on Clomid (clomiphene) 50mg (day 3-7). Age 29. What are the chances of success in first month of clomid (clomiphene). Is there any chance of twins?

Depends: Chance of preg depends on many factors. Is your partner's sperm count normal? Are your tubes open? What is your amh level? With unexplained infertility (ie tests show no problems) the preg rate is 2% per cycle for Clomid (clomiphene) with intercourse and 10%+ for Clomid (clomiphene) with insemination. Your chance of achieving twins is 5-8%. If you do not ovulate regularly then chance of success is about 2o%. ...Read more

What is the percentage of success for ericson method using IUI for having a boy. Sperm sorted using ericson method was inserted second day of ovulatio?

Not accurate: The method claims about a 70% success but it is not a reliable method. An experimental technique, microsort, is no longer available. The only reliable method of gender selection is ivf/pgs to genetically identify the embryos of the desired gender. Virtually 100% accurate if you get pregnant. Many practices will not offer the technique. Iui works best when performed before/during ovulation. Best. ...Read more

7 mos prego, wedding is 2 weeks and have major social anxiety. NO meds while pregnant, but have used Valerian (past) with success. Safe for one day?

Not recommended: While Valerian root is generally considered safe to use for anxiety and insomnia, it's uncertain whether or not it's any better than placebo (the suggestiveness effect). Most OB's will tell you NOT to take it during pregnancy. Herbal products aren't regulated & you never know what or how much you're getting. Why not talk with your OB about alternative ways to have a wonderful wedding? ...Read more
