    Default Is there a decreased chance with an FET?

    Silly question I know, but I'm curious...

    My first IVF attempt resulted in an early m/c, and I guess I'm just a little concerned that an FET won't be as 'good'.

    I guess what I'm trying to say is, because your embies are frozen and need to be thawed, does it affect their quality and implantation chances at all? I just figured that when it is all fresh, then the chances are higher.

    I'm not sure what the quality of my 3 frosties are, but I remember after EPU, my FS told me that I had 4 great eggs, and I'm pretty sure the embryologist told me that I had 4 great embryos aswell. My first was an 8 cell 3 day transfer.

    Just looking for some hope

    Hi Disney: I believe the opposite in fact, with FET your body hasnt just gone through the trauma of stimulation and egg collection, therefore you have an increased chance of success. Also re the frosties, they wont freeze unless they are of good quality and the thaw process is very successful although there is still a chance of the emby not surviving the thaw which is quite nerve racking but unlikely.

    Good luck, l hope this helps.

    Our first fresh transfer was bfn, our second fet was Bfp resulting in ds1. Our second cycle we got Bfp fresh transfer resulting in ds2. Our 2 remaining frosties didn't survive the thaw from our first cycle but the technique of freezing and thawing has improved since then.

    If I call my clinic tomorrow, will they be able to tell me if I will be having a medicated FET? I am seeing my new FS (by no choice of my own) on the 21st, but if I end up having a medicated cycle, I will need to wait ANOTHER month as it will be too late in my cycle to start.

    I'm so angry at my FS for screwing us around!!!
