Ivf (Definition)

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

Ivf stimulation going on. Day 2 of period follicles 22, estrogen 103. Day 3 estrogen 202 (after 150 menopur 150 gonal f). Is this average, good, low?

Ivf stimulation going on. Day 2 of period follicles 22, estrogen 103. Day 3 estrogen 202 (after 150 menopur 150 gonal f). Is this average, good, low?

Good: Are you saying they measured 22 different follicles? That's a lot. You're very early on in the process so it's hard to predict. At the very least though you're average to above average. They will need to watch for ovarian hyperstimulation if you have that many follicles. They may need to decrease your dose in the near future. Most women use stimulation meds for 10-12 days. ...Read more

During hormones therapy for IVF left ovary produced 5 follicles, only 1 survived, the right ovary did not produce good ones although its healthy. Why?

During hormones therapy for IVF left ovary produced 5 follicles, only 1 survived, the right ovary did not produce good ones although its healthy. Why?

Age: Age is most likely the factor in poor ovarian response to stimulation. The amount of antral follicles decrease as one gets older. No matter how much medication you use the number of follicles that can grow each month is predetermined. This occurs almost a year prior to the stimulated cycle. ...Read more

Can number of follicles double overnight ivf?

Can number of follicles double overnight ivf?

No: The size of the follicles can double...However the number of follicles are a pre-determined event, which you can see within the 1st 5 to 7 days of ivf medication stimulation. ...Read more

I am on day 8 of an IVF cycle and yesterday I had 17 follicles, but today only 9. Is this normal? The ones that are still there are developing.

Could be: Each cycle follicles are recruited and in if several have enough stimuli to reach critical size and could be harvested. Starting out with 17 and now with 8 indicates that the other follicles were never going to reach critical size even with the hormonal stimulation. Good luck to you! ...Read more

What is success of IVF with amh. 45, fsh 7.8, LH 5.6, and 7-9 follicles total at age 28?

Pregnancy: It is difficult to put a number for what your success may be. These tests also are not predictive of pregnancy rather your response to fertility treatment medications during ivf. Your chances may not be as high as someone your same age with normal ovarian reserve. However, your age places you at a high chance in general. Good luck. ...Read more

How many good quality follicles are optimally required for a successful IVF?

4 to 6: It is good to retrieve 4 to 6 follicles of good quality. As fertilization is also usually about 60 to 70% followed by further reduction until blastocyst formation. This way one can be guaranteed to have at least 2 good blastocyst for transfer. Good Luck. ...Read more

My 1st IVF with 1 excellent follicle did not succeed. What are my chances of pregnancy for the next IVF?

My 1st IVF with 1 excellent follicle did not succeed. What are my chances of pregnancy for the next IVF?

Varies: The success rate for IVF cycles is around 50% to 70% and does depend to some extent on a variety of issues including the age of the eggs being used, the woman's anatomy (fibroids, uterine anomalies, etc) and the experience of the reproductive specialist. Good luck. ...Read more

Day 11 from cycle and 8 dys of hormonal therapy for IVF. Today LH 0, 780 E2 350pg/ml, 1 follicle -11mm, 3 folicles 13mm. Is that good?

Day 11 from cycle and 8 dys of hormonal therapy for IVF. Today LH 0, 780 E2 350pg/ml, 1 follicle -11mm, 3 folicles 13mm. Is that good?

IVF is not simple: IVF is a very complex process and requires a very qualified expert to evaluate all the information and your personal information too. While you have much data that appears promising, you must rely on your doctor to guide you. There are many resources out there but they do not take into account your special circumstances as a patient. I recommend you discuss all these details with your IVF doctor. ...Read more

I am cycle day 8 after a failed IVF but still bleeding light. Is this normal. Will my fertile days be the same this month? Can I have mtple follicles

I am cycle day 8 after a failed IVF but still bleeding light. Is this normal. Will my fertile days be the same this month? Can I have mtple follicles

See your RE: You need to see the doctor who did your ivf to evaluate the follicles which remain going into this next cycle. Generally, the number of days of fertility are the same, but the days that they occur may change. If you are going to try to conceive on your own this month, I recommend an ovulation predictor kid. They are quite accurate. You are still high risk and need to see your OB or re. ...Read more

Had failed IVF cycle today, as Dr. Says only 02 eggs were retrieved from 9 follicles grown & those two failed to fertilize with ICSI. Is it possible?

Yes: Normal women have a cycle every month but only a few pregnancies in her life. The careful success of a pregnancy requires a host of issues to successfully line up. Probably 60% of impregantions are still not successful and even in the face of many sperm many eggs are never impregnanted. Much is still a mystery. ...Read more

I'm on ivf Antagonist protocol, after 6 days of stim, my e2 level is 75.3 and of 7 follicles only 2 are growing. My dose is increase. Is there any hope?

Yes, keep going: Your initial E2 level is low but some women just need longer stimulation before their follicles start growing. This is especially true if you were on birth control pills (BCPs) as part of your IVF cycle. BCPs can suppress some women significantly. Try the higher dose for a few days and then reevaluate. Sometimes it's better to stop the cycle and start over at a higher initial dose. ...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

28, don't want children, haven't had ivf, after ultrasound I was found to have an enlarged right ovary, which contained all mature follicles? Cause?

Follicles, one ovary: There could be a number of explanations as to why a sonographer see mature follicles in only one ovary; the most likely is that the other ovary didn't show up well at the time of the procedure, and the follicles couldn't be assessed. ...Read more

36y/o in ivf#1 w/o prior iui. Fsh=7.7, e2=33, amh=4.54, afc=19. Should I be happy about my follicle count or concerned for ohss? What's my success %?

36y/o in ivf#1 w/o prior iui. Fsh=7.7, e2=33, amh=4.54, afc=19. Should I be happy about my follicle count or concerned for ohss? What's my success %?

Why OHSS?: The only risk significantly linked to ohss is peak Estradiol (e2) level at the time of HCG or ovulation. Even this is not a reliable indicator for ohss, but any e2 over 3000 should be considered carefully. None of the numbers you list have any bearing on ohss risk. ...Read more

By mistake nurse injected me HCG injection instead of Fostimone, my follicle was 14mm. Doc said IVF to be canceled. Will I have late period or cyst?

By mistake nurse injected me HCG injection instead of Fostimone, my follicle was 14mm. Doc said IVF to be canceled. Will I have late period or cyst?

Uncertain: There is no real reason to think that either of the two things that you mention would occur. If you have regular periods you will likely have one near your usual time. There is no reason to think that you would develop a cyst unless you already had one. ...Read more
