Is freezing embryos the recommended action vs eggs?

Yes: Freezing embryos is more reliable than freezing eggs. Eggs are more likely to be damaged in the freezing process, however, improvements in freezing techniques have improved egg survival and function after thaw. Despite advancements, embryo freezing remains superior to egg freezing. ...Read more

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.

I am 39 and like to share my frozen embryos in return for ivf?

I am 39 and like to share my frozen embryos in return for ivf?

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 more

Not necessarily : Every person's situation is different so you should sit down and discuss details with your doctor, but from what you are telling me you should have an overall good chance for success. It is very possible that one of your frozen embryos could have normal chromosomes. If not, you still should have a reasonable chance for success with another cycle. Best of luck to you! ...Read more

Hw can asprine affect growth of embryo. I have to take one 100 mg every morning for my memory problem. Should i stop taking it while going for ivf?

Low-dose aspirin is : used by some to slow memory loss in women > 65, but not reversal of memory loss in any age. It is a Class D drug in pregnancy, per the US Federal Drug Administration, as it has known adverse risks in pregnancy. Stop it now unless your Fertility Specialist okays it. Start daily folate (folic acid) supplement at least 3 mos. before conception; have a flu shot at least 2 mos. before conception. ...Read more

Possibly: There are studied top suggest higher pregnancy rates from fet rather than fresh ivf, comparing of course similar quality embryos. This stems from lower hormone levels during fet cycles. You bmi should not have any significant impact. ...Read more

I have 11mm endometrium & FET is after 7days.It will grow further.What is the maximum endometrium thickness for frozen embryo transfer in IVF ?

I have 11mm endometrium & FET is after 7days.It will grow further.What is the maximum endometrium thickness for frozen embryo transfer in IVF ?

Perfect lining: I assume you will start Progesterone replacement soon as part of your protocol before your fet. Once Progesterone begins you will not see much growth (and possibly some thining) of the endometrial lining. Ideally you want the lining above 8 mm and triple line in appearance before start of the progesterone. There is no hard data on maximum thickness but some feel its around 18 mm. ...Read more

Trnasfrd 2 embryos grd 1 ,8 cell.endimitrium  excellent.no health problem except mild anemia(hemglbn10.5).ivf failed.can anemia cause it or othr reasn?

Not likely: I'm sorry the transfer was not successful. Mild anemia is not likely the reason the transfer failed. Unfortunately infertility issues are stressful, and transfers are often unsuccessful for no obvious reason. Talk with your doctor to see what your next options might be. ...Read more
