2nd FET negative, need advice on 3rd FET attempt

Postby Mbabercrombie » Wed Apr 02, 2014 1:13 am

For the last 8 years I have had 4 miscarriages, one with a fresh IVF cycle. Found out that my husband and I both have a balanced chromosomal translocations. We have had 3 fertility doctors tell us we are their only patients in 20+ years who both have that. So we decided since we couldn't have kids genetically together we would try embryo donation. Found a great doctor and faculty and had a FET 5 day blastocyst transfer in Jan and one done two weeks ago. Both ended up negative. :( We have one more chance in this doctors embryo donation program and I literally am terrified. All my test come back great and I am healthy and should be able to carry. Guess we just chose the wrong donor embryos. Scared to death we will choose wrong again for our cycle in May. We are thinking of choosing 2 day or 3 day old embryos compared to 5 day old ones. Has anyone had a similar experience with FET and if so what did y'all choose and what was your outcomes?

TWO balanced translocations? Wow. Never heard of that.

Donor embryo is a great choice. Generally blast FET works better than earlier stages at most centers, and most have therefore switched to mainly blast freezing. Another good option is to thaw early embryos and let them grow to blast, then transfer them.
