I did my fresh day three transfer 11 days ago. I'm suppose to go tomorrow for my blood but I see I am spotting. Does that mean the IVF didn't work?

I did my fresh day three transfer 11 days ago. I'm suppose to go tomorrow for my blood but I see I am spotting. Does that mean the IVF didn't work?

Be patient: Please be patient and wait for your pregnancy test tomorrow. Small spotting is extremely common and does not tell you 'yes' or 'no.' keep the test tomorrow, try not to worry, and good luck.

Ivf (Definition)

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

A test is reliable: 11 days after d3 et, but you should really test when your ivf doctor instructs you. Don't stay up at night looking for symptoms, there aren't any this early.

Please call your IVF: Doctor, your ivf doc should have told u that exact answr right after the transfer and u should have a follow up exam scheduled with the ivf doc so u should call them now and ask this exact question. I am sure his nurse can answer that if the doc is tied up.

Depends: Many factors play into success with embryo transfer - age, condition of the embryo, length of time in cold storage for embryo before implant, technique, the specific center you are being treated at, the list goes on. Your RE, the doctor that is doing the procedure should have age-related numbers for the center you are being treated at. Discuss this with your doctor there for a more accurate answer

Today is 8th day for my IVF transfer what symptoms can I get now?

Wait and see: One would expect no symptoms since it too early. You you simply wait to take a pregnancy test until the day your doctor instructed.

Are there any symptoms I can look for 4 days post 5 day IVF transfer?

Not really.: As anxious a time as this is, symptoms are an unreliable indicator of good or bad outcome. Have to just hang in there.

My wife tested today for HCG after our IVF 2.8 was her beat on day 13 past 3 day transfer.......is it even possible for this to end well?

Probably not...: Given that it's essentially 31 days after "LMP" (15+3+13), bhcg should be detectable by urine pregnancy test (which usually has threshold of 25) so if the HCG is 2.8, this cycle may not have been successful. You should discuss with your REI doc - see if there's any other reason and also planning for future cycle (s)

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.

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.

Can a day 5 blastocyst be transferred in day 7 of my natural cycle through ivf?

Can a day 5 blastocyst be transferred in day 7 of my natural cycle through ivf?

No: The window of implantation appears to close at about noon on day 6 post-retrieval. While there may be occasional pregnancies, the success rate drops significantly. I am not sure why you or your doc would want to transfer on day 7, but it is almost certainly a poor idea.

Call your IVF clinic: If you're doing an ivf treatment cycle you should talk to your clinic about any symptoms you're worried about, including pain or bleeding.

Success rate of day 3 versus day 5 embryo transfer for IVF. Is one method more successful than the other?

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.

What is the difference between hCG level and bata level for a 3 day IVF transfer? My numbers are 1508 hCG and my bata #is 24.19

Hormone: The pregnancy test commonly referred to as HCG is actually a measure of the beta subunit of the HCG molecule, so you may hear it referred to as beta hcg, hcg, or beta and they are the same test. I think you may be mistaken on the second test-- the result seems more consistent with a Progesterone level.

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?

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.

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.

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?

What day after IVF transfer is there bleeding and cramping?

What day after IVF transfer is there bleeding and cramping?

Depends: Usually bleeding will start 14-5 days after your retrieval. If you have a day 3 transfer that is 11-12 days later or 9-10 days after a day 5 blastocyst transfer. If you are taking Progesterone supplementation it may supress bleeding even if you are not pregnant. The period will usually start 1-2 days after stopping progesterone.

My first round of IVF failed- 14 fertilized only 1 made it to day 5 transfer- what causes bad embryos (I'm 29, pcos)??

My first round of IVF failed- 14 fertilized only 1 made it to day 5 transfer- what causes bad embryos (I'm 29, pcos)??

Genetic issues: The combination of the 46 chromosomes in the embryo are the cause of the "bad" embryos that do not go on to fruition.

Brown discharge 4 days after day 5 transfer ivf, is this normal?

Brown discharge 4 days after day 5 transfer ivf, is this normal?

Don't worry: 1. This could be a sign of implantation as the embryo is hatching and trying to imbed into your uterine cavity 2. The spotting could be residual from either the egg retrieval or some cervical irritation from the embryo transfer- was it a difficult embryo transfer? Make sure you stay on your Progesterone post-transfer- good luck!
