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

What is the treatment for IVF pregnancy?

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

Im 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?

Im 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

What are the symptoms that can accompany IVF pregnancy?

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. In other words, if you account for possible multiples, and for the fact that ovaries are stimulated in ivf, the symptoms are the same as in a natural pregnancy. ...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 told that the embryo implanted low and not by ivf. What does that mean? Is my pregnancy in danger? I'm only 6 wks.

Probably not bad: The implanation location can be concerning, but we are not so hot at telling if it is going to be a problem at 6 weeks unless it is really low (like nearly in the vagina). Get an ultrasound in a few weeks to see where the fetus is and be sure there is a heartbeat. Most of the time, the pregnancy will be fine. If it is truly too low, there will be bleeding and often a miscarriage. ...Read more

I'd IVF 2 months ago with -ve result.A month after, I got my mens.This current month, I had spotting twice in 1 week gap.Is it pregnancy?

Take a test!: Over the counter pregnancy tests are very accurate. So start there. If your test is negative, then I would see your Fertility Doc for an ultrasound to make sure that you haven't developed a cyst or a polyp. It's probably just your hormones getting normalized, but sometimes the fertility medications can stimulate things to grow that weren't there before. Good luck! ...Read more
