I started to bleed red & heavy on day 5 post my egg transfer of x2 5 day compacting morula's. Is this likely to be my period? Isn't it too early?
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
I am on my day five after embryo transfer. My hormone levels are normal.I wonder what and what not should I eat to make my pregnancy a success?
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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
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
