Who is not a suitable candidate for zygote intrafallopian transfer?

Dr. Sy Le Dr. Le
3 doctors agreed:

ZIFT candidate: Embryos live best in the environment of the tubes which act as natural incubators. For women older than 42, ivf may not offer much advantage over the natural cycle. Some studies had shown that placing embryos (zift) or the sperm and eggs (gift) into the distal tubes could yield higher live birth rates than ivf. For most patients, however, ivf is more cost effective than zift or gift. ...Read more

Where do I go to get a zygote intra fallopian transfer done?

You Don't: No reputable program would offer this technique unless perhaps you were born without a vagina. This was once an option for clinics that demonstrated poor ivf results, but as knowledge improved this is simply a great way to experience ectopic pregnancies and multiple births for twice the cost of normal ivf. ...Read more

Could a 5 day frozen blastocyst be divided into identical twins after transfer?

Yes: Actually this is slightly more common after day five transfer ~1%. Since the embryo is in nearly hatching or hatching, the transfer "pressure" can cause the embryo to split into identical twins. This is one of the disadvantages of day 5 transfer. Good luck. ...Read more

Is there any benefit to using hCG after frozen embryo transfer?

Dr. Amr Azim Dr. Azim
1 doctor agreed:
Is there any benefit to using hCG after frozen embryo transfer?

Unlikely: You mean natural cycle frozen embryo transfer with HCG used to trigger ovulation. There is no evidence that using HCG has additional benefits compared to awaiting natural lh surge and spontaneous ovulation. Hcg injection though may help with timing of frozen embryo transfer as compared to awaiting lh surge which may be missed or happen in an inconvenient day. ...Read more

Can ftm transgenders on testosterone without bottom surgery use their eggs with a sperm donor and fertilize another woman's egg?

Sperm from one women vagina can transfer to the other female vagina through uncover transvignal probe?If sperm can transfer it can cause pregnancy?

Very unlikely.: Transvaginal ultrasound probes should be sterilized in between patients. In addition, a condom should be placed over it. Even if this didn't occur, the chance of becoming pregnant because of sperm being transferred on the probe would be very very unlikely. ...Read more

Do consecutive failed zygote implantation affect fertility? My uterus lining will be recovering from a marina coil removal(which thins the u wall out)

Do consecutive failed zygote implantation affect fertility? My uterus lining will be recovering from a marina coil removal(which thins the u wall out)

Fertility recovers: The Mirena (levonorgestrel) releases progestin which thins your uterine lining and makes it unfavorable for implantation. Once the Mirena (levonorgestrel) is removed your lining recovers and your fertility should be back to normal very rapidly. Not getting pregnant the first 2 months after Mirena (levonorgestrel) removal does not affect your future chances, but at 32 you should get pregnant in the first year of trying. See your doctor if not. ...Read more

Can a xy female with small uterus and no ovaries get pregnant by donated egg through ivf. What's the procedure ? Please help

Can a xy female with small uterus and no ovaries get pregnant by donated egg through ivf.  What's the procedure ? Please help

Maybe: The likelihood is probalby small, but depends on the cause of the dsd (disorder of sex development). T-fem usually doesn't have a functional uterus. If it is xy gonadal dysgenesis, maybe. You need an evaluation of the inside of the uterus (if there is a vagina and cervix to get there). If the uterine cavity is normal, substantial hormone treatment may allow ivf to work. Good luck. ...Read more
