Ghost, Intralipid infusions

Hi,
What are your thoughts on intralipid infusions in conjunction with a FET of an embryo that is normal based on PGS testing?
Thanks

The doctors I know never use it for any purpose. The centers I know with very high implantation rates do not use it for any purpose.

Richard Scott, a very highly regarded doctor, researcher, authority, and lecturer, described it as “snake oil”, which refers to a placebo sold fraudulently. In fact, intralipid is frequently used as the placebo in clinical trials.

None of that proves it’s worthless, but it does explain my skepticism.

Thank you

Is there a website for statistics on success rates for normal pgs tested embryos by age ?

Here are the success rates of a center that uses PGS in every cycle, or so I’ve heard. Notice all of their transfers are frozen.


https://nccd.cdc.gov/drh_art/rdPage.aspx?rdReport=DRH_ART.ClinicInfo&ClinicId=124&ShowNational=0

https://nccd.cdc.gov/drh_art/rdPage.asp ... National=0

Note: Navigate to the tab for Detailed Data Summary.

These success rates might be used as a rough estimate of what to expect with transfers of single PGS-normal thawed embryos.

I have no affiliation with that center. I have never worked there, I have never been to that center, and I have never met that physician (that I recall).
