Stages Of Embryo Development Ivf
I just had a not viable pregnancy after IVF treatment. What can I do to get a better result , since i'll be using my frozen embryos.
A matter of chance: Most non viable pregnancies are the result of an embryo that is genetically abnormal. The majority of embryos are abnormal and most of these will declare themselves by not growing or not implanting. This is particularly pronounced as you get older. Other than using an egg donor, your best bet is try again with frozen or with fresh embryos. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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.

Estrogen level high at 1094 in wk 6 of IVF pregnancy. Does this affect gender development of brain and sex organs of fetus? Should I decrease estrogen
Probably not: You could always donate your embryos to another couple anonymously or it can even be a known situation.

Sthe uterus makes a big difference so proper evaluation is very important. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
