Will type one diabetes stop me from being allowed ivf?

Will type one diabetes stop me from being allowed ivf?

No, not as long: No, not as long as your diabetes is well controlled. Also, it would be important to know the risks/consequences of undergoing ivf and your doctor would need to have you undergo "preconception counselling" first. Good luck! ...Read more

Diabetes (Definition)

Diabetes is a disease of increased blood glucose levels. Glucose is a type of sugar that comes from the intake of food. Insulin is a type of hormone that removes the glucose from the blood and moves it into the cells to provide them with energy. There are two different types of diabetes: type 1 and type 2. Type 1 diabetes is when the body does not make any insulin. Therefore, glucose stays inside the blood and does not move into the cells. Type 2 diabetes, which is commonly associated with obesity, is when the body is either resistant to the effects of insulin or when the body does not produce enough insulin. Increased levels of glucose in the body causes severe damage to the ...Read more

I just had blood tests for before I start IVF that tested for HIV hepatitis, rubella, diabetes etc what if I was positive?

It depends: Some illnesses dramatically increase the risk of a miscarriage or a deformed baby. Some illness can be managed by avoiding a vaginal delivery. If you are going to spend a small fortune on ivf and the doc is going to spend a lot of time getting your pregnant, i think you both would like to have as much info as possible before you start. ...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

With addisions disease tried one cycle of IVF but negative what could be reason?

With addisions disease tried one cycle of IVF but negative what could be reason?

Cannot be sure.: But certainly your underlying medical problems and their therapy can impact your chance of success per ivf cycle -which is probably no more than 15-20% at your age anyway. Take folic acid, follow the advice of your reproductive endocrinology and infertility specialist and keep your spirits up. Perseverance and optimism get rewarded typically. Best of luck! ...Read more

My wife makes a lot of eggs but we have no luck with IVF so far. When should we stop?

My wife makes a lot of eggs but we have no luck with IVF so far. When should we stop?

It depends: Ivf success varies from center to center. Most of my ivf patients conceive on their first/only ivf cycle. Sometimes it can take more than one attempt, though, for ivf to work. A good, board certified re should be able to guide his/her patient as to when "enough is enough". ...Read more

In failed IVF , how can one determine if it is due to implantation failure ? What causes implantation failure

In failed IVF , how can one determine if it is due to implantation failure ? What causes implantation failure

Negative preg. test: Embryos that implant ('take' in the lining of the uterus) make detectable levels of HCG hormone, so embryos that implant and then fail later cause a 'biochemical pregnancy' or miscarriage. Embryo transfer with negative blood HCG means embryos didn't implant. Possible causes: genetic or metabolic problems in the embryos, polyps or other problems with uterine lining, or issues with embryo transfer. ...Read more

My eggs frozen so I can have a career and go for IVF later. Dont want problems. Will baby be perfect as one from fresh egg?

Probably : Egg freezing is relatively new. Only about 5, 000 babies have been born from frozen eggs while it is estimated that about 5 million babies have been born from ivf using fresh eggs. At this point it appears that the birth defect and miscarriage rate from using frozen eggs is the same as ivf using fresh eggs. The risk of birth defects appears to be low but not zero. ...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.

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

I had amlodopine 5 mg after IVF for 5 day and then stop them.Find info so they danger for babe? Did this 5 day while i take this med will affect babe?

Not likely: There are no safe drugs in pregnancy but the effect of all drugs prior to a positive pregnancy test is minimal. The embryo is barely implanted at that point and has the potential for recovering from small injuries. ...Read more
