Symptoms Of Embryo Implantation After Ivf
I know there's issues with embryo implantation due to endometriosis. Is there something to take to improve chances of implantation with ivf?
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
I have endometriosis w/ 1 failed IVF and 3 frozen embryos left. Would another laparoscopy to remove endo help implantation with an fet? Last lap 2/13
Not likely: I think for years we were more concerned about things like that. Now we known in the absence of specific problems with the uterus lining or cavity, that most ivf cycles fail because the embryos were genetically abnormal. So at age 31 likely half of all good day 5 embryos are genetically abnormal. Hopefully on of the frozen ones is good quality and genetically normal! ...Read more

Be optimistic: It is neither one, it is an "occupational hazard;" in other words it happens all the time. It doe snot predict at all whether the ET was successful. Think positive, please follow all your doctor's instructions, and good luck with your pregnancy test. ...Read more
I am through my IVF cycle. And I am now 5 days after emberyo transfer. What pregnancy symptom ahould I expect?
Maybe none: The symptoms of pregnancy vary from woman to woman. Some have many symptoms and others have none. Nausea, vomiting, bloating, tiredness, urinary frequency are some common symptoms. Ivf can have exactly the same symptoms. Important: if you have no symptoms, you can still have a very normal pregnancy. Do not stop medication until your pg test is negative and your doc stops them! Best wishes. ...Read more
Hello, intense cramps from Constipation after an IVF embryo transfer, (I am 5dp5dt) can it prevent implantation or kill the embryo?
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

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

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
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

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
