Are all fertility centers in Perth overly optimistic? I'd love a realist..
What did they tell u this time, sleepydude?
Just that every time we go in the embryo looks great, but ask for the grade and do our own research and it's not as great as they make out.
Also the doc goes, you've got two frozen so if you only want two more kids then you could be done... When realistically the transfer of the best embryo failed so why would she suggest the next two will take.
Maybe most patients like that level of optimism. I just prefer some honesty. Also could be that I'm in a ****ty mood today... Haha.
Also she said FET has a better success rate then fresh but wouldn't expand on her basis for that comment.
Sleepydude honestly they wouldn't freeze unless they were decent embryos... But saying that there are plenty of babies out there that started as 'dodgy embies' And yes FET can be more successful (there is research both ways) I have a friend that refuses to do fresh transfers as she knows her body will only take FET, they say this is because there is less stress on the body than a full stim. So much depends on the individual.
Don't give up hope you never know if the next embie will be the baby you are waiting for XX
Oh I totally agree, I have been told that this is the best embryo the doctor has ever seen, next time that I wouldnt be coming back again as I would definitely be pregnant! All BFN's. Sleepydude which clinic are you with? My FS also told me that FET has the same if not a slightly better success rate because your body is under less stress.
ps. The only time I have had a BFP was with a lower grade embryo. It did unfortunately end in a M/C though. All the perfect ones have been BFNs so I am not sure how great a guide it really is?!
Sleepydude: any grade of embryo can resulted in a baby. As you knew, my beautiful, perfect grade A, hatching blastocyst ended in chemical pregnancy. My FS in syd is realistic. She told me straight out the possibility of not finding sperms during my first consult (also in the letter to my GP). She wanted me to consider freezing my eggs in case nothing was found on hubby by the urologist. I was told that first IVF success rate isnt high and we are extremely lucky. She was also gutted about my miscarriage and wanted to do everything to help since this is our last chance. Hubby gave up at this point. I was told that 1 in 6 frozen embies wont survive a thaw in the lab on a given day during my follow up. I am glad that she has such enthusiastic about her work and are willing to explore new things. She is a young fellow on her way up. I initially quite worried that she might not have enough experience but from what i heard, old prof and FS won't even try the stuff that she suggested until 3 or 4 unsuccessful cycles. The new plan is also a realistic approach for me and the best we can do.
I personally think that fresh is best because you dont have to go the possibility of not having it survives the thaw. On the other hand, It is likely that your body is in a better shape without a bunch of fertility drugs. I was so sure that my FS would want me to do a medicated FET because easier to pin down a date to syd but she actually prefers me to go with the natural cycle.
It is a lot of luck for this IVF journey. FX everything goes well for you this cycle.
Very true bbhope...
On another note who takes HPT before their blood tests? How many days after a 3dt do you think it would work?
