I strongly urge you to get off the web and call your ivf doctor this morning. We always want to hear from our patients, not have them asking anyone else. ...Read more

Hi doc, after my failed ivf, I had my period on 15nov, 2012.Its now 49 days without period and I keep testing neg with hpt. Pls what can I do. I av cramps? Sometimes I feel bloated and full of gas at night
Have an evaluation: Often the stress of an ivf cycle or any fertility treatment can effect normal hormone production, resulting in delayed ovulation, and a late or missed period. An ultrasound would re-assure you that this is the case. Cramps may represent an impending menstrual flow. The gas is a red- herring that far from your ivf cycle. ...Read more
I had failed IVF, tested negative, transfer was 1.5 month ago. I stopped drugs then too. Still had no withdraw bleeding or period. Why? Worried
Disappointing!: Hard to give a clear answer without any information about you (age, menstrual history, any dates or info about IVF cycle) but there can be many reasons for NOT starting after unsuccessful IVF that are not to worry about. Often in a fresh cycle there may be residual ovarian cysts that can delay cycle start. You should contact your IVF doctor for more information, good wishes. ...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
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
My 5 month old still gets up 2-3 times a night. Feel worn down and overwhelmed. No sex with wife since birth. Big impact on sex. Did IVF. Have 2 boys. Any advice for me and relationship?
Sex when baby sleeps: First, work it out to have sex when the baby is asleep; its not spontaneous but it is what it is and better than no sex (and, you and your wife can learn to 'get right to the matter' quickly). Regarding the baby's sleep, its not uncommon. The issue is what is the cause: colic? intolerance of dirty diaper? You and your pediatrician should discuss and explore this issue. ...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
If im gonna do IVF and I donate all my eggs the first time will I still have to pay to donate them and pay again for IVF when im ready the second time?
Hard to say: Best direct this question to your infertility provider. They will retrieve whatever eggs they can after the stimulation cycle. It is difficult to freeze eggs and have them survive. Frozen embryos have a better chance or survival. You might be able to use frozen embryos for a future cycle without having eggs retrieved again. Check with your provider. Good luck! ...Read more
I've had my tubes reversed and they blocked up, I've done IVF and still not prg, what would you suggest?
Other causes: You need to have a thorough evaluation to look for other causes of infertility. Having gone through ivf it is likely that you had a full evaluation prior to treatment. Also keep in mind that pregnancy with ivf is not 100%. Your age plays a role in determining success among other things. As long as you responded well to the meds and have good quality embryos, then you can try again. Best wishes. ...Read more
Is freezing eggs at age 33 still a good idea if considering IVF later? (At age 35-37) or would it be better just to wait?
Day 17 after ivf. Still positive test. How long after bleeding stops will a test show up negative. Been bleeding for 5 days now but no clots.
Pregnant or not?: If you are pregnant from ivf and you are bleeding does not mean that the pregnancy is destined to end. Please see your ivf doctor immediately. Bleeding can be due to lack of Progesterone (can be supplemented), bleeding can be due to cervical bleeding. Bleeding can be due to multiple gestation. There are many causes of bleeding. Unless your doctor confirmed that the pregnancy is not viable. ...Read more

Repeat Blood Test...: You are only a few days pregnant. Urine test frequently won't turn positive until the HCG blood level is > 50. The only way to know what is going on is to repeat the blood level and see if the level is going up or down. It should increase by at least 50% in 48 hours. Its hard to wait but sometimes that is all you can do. Time is one of the best diagnostic tools there is. Best wishes! ...Read more
