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 more
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
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. 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
Embryos don't quit:
Fall out. The embryo will either attach or not attach. Embryos are microscopic and would never be seen "coming out or falling out".
When an embryo attaches it is called implantation. ...Read more
Complicated: First of all grade is only one part of embryo quality. The rate of growth and expansion of the embryo are most important. I transfer almost always a blastocyst embryo. Many grade 1 embryos early on do not look good later. Also pregnancy rates from grade 1 embryos are twice as high as grade 2 on average. Sthe uterus makes a big difference so proper evaluation is very important. ...Read more
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 more
For IVF, what benefits are there for freezing embryos, vs just freezing eggs? 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
Huge NumberVariables: Including: age, person receiving, donors, those helping & their methods, food, emotional issues & the list goes on & on. All meaningful medical rates are after the fact data; not reliable future predictions. Why? The issues are far too complex & beyond everyone's reasonable understanding. Suggest studying: http://goo.

Yes: Check with a legal advisor about "embryo" ownership rights if divorce occurs before implantation. The supreme court just ruled that an embryo implanted pregnancy that develops into a child is not entitled to survivors benefits from social security in the event of the prior death of one of the parents. ...Read more
How to manage colds during IVF cycle? I have embryo transfer tomorrow and I coming down with a cold.
Cold and IVF: If you are having, mild flu like symptoms, there may not be any need to worry about transfer. However, if you are feverish or having severe symptoms, it may be better to freeze the embryos and plan a transfer when you aren't ill. I would talk to your doctor about their recommendations. ...Read more
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
I had 15 embryos made it to day3 biopsy in ivf-PGD Process, 7are 8cells&6are 7cells&2are4cells Could they all make it to day 5?
I am 41 and just had my embryo transfer on sunday 12/05/13. This is my first IVF cycle. I had 4 embryos transferred on day 3. What are my chances?
Reasonable: The number one predictor of success with ivf is age. The u.S national average is 20% pregnancy & 12% creating a live born baby. The 8% difference is mostly due to miscarriages. You specific odds of achieving pregnancy and ultimately a live born baby depends on many factors, including your fsh level, the cause of infertility, the skill and experience of your physician, skill of embryologist. ...Read more
Is a 6 cell embryo on Day 3 an option to make it to a viable blastocyst for IVF transfer on Day 5? I know ideally it should be an 8 cell on Day 3.
Would be concerned a: Bout how it got to be 6 celled. The fertilized egg should split into two and each of the cells then consequently double so should be 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, etc. 6 is not part of that so was there some sort of problem during 4-to-8 split such that half the slcells didn't split? ...Read more
I have abortion IVF. I have 2 frozen embryos left. If abortion was couse by chromozal abnormaliti does that mean that 2 embryo left has same abnormali?
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
I hv a girl from ivf. Nw want a boy, from the 6 frozen embryos tht I had only 3 were normal and they all were girl. Can u manually attach x wid y 4 boy?
In an embryology lab: The eggs go from the body directly into the IVF lab. Today, the lab is specially designed for air handling, lighting and temperature to support embryo growth. The embryos are cultured for 3-6 days before transfer into the uterus. Embryos receive a score for implantation potential. Sometimes checked for the number of chromosomes and even time-lapse photography. # transferred based on age&quality ...Read more
Yes: Bleeding or spotting can occur early in a pregnancy and this can happen after an ivf cycle as well as a natural cycle. Bleeding may be implantation bleeding in nor mal pregnancy but also could be a sign of a bad pregnancy such a a tubal pregnancy or a bad uterine pregnancy that will miscarry. Early bleeding may also be a sign that the period is coming early. ...Read more
Uncertain: It is not clear that embryo glue is definitely helpful. Some studies demonstrate a benefit while others do not. Embryo glue has the downside of being expensive. Please speak with your doctor about the pros and cons of embryo glue in your particular situation. Best of luck! ...Read more
