first ivf was ectopic..

Postby jen32 » Thu Mar 30, 2006 1:13 am

I am new here and would really appreciate some input. I am on the 2ww of my 2nd ivf. we transferred a B7 and a B8 and froze 2 B6's and a C4 that all made it to blastocyst. My first ivf resulted in a tubal and I lost the tube. the ones we had transferred then were a A4 and a C8 (nothing to freeze). So this time the ones we transferred are supposed to be better. My question is, am I likely to have another ectopic and if it is +ive is it likely to be twins since we transferred such good embryos? If the 3 made it to blastocyst, shouldn't these 2 transferred make it for sure?? Help I am so worried about another tubal...

Hi. I am sorry I can't help with your questions. I haven't started treatment yet, so am only a novice.
I did want to say though, that I have had 2 ectopic pregnancies so my thoughts are with you.
Keep your chin up and think positive.
Sorry I wasn't much use.. :?

Hi Jen

We are very alike.
My first ivf last year also ended in an ectopic and I too am in the 2ww of a frozen cycle.
Regarding risk of another ectopic - I worry about this too. We are at increased risk, as is everyone who has ivf and I suppose our risk is a little higher. But we are more likely to have a uterine pregnancy than an ectopic so the odds are on our side :D
As for your high possibility of twins, I don't know. The risk of twins is usually around 25% I think.

Good luck with the rest of the 2ww - when do you test? You should join the April test thread on the General Forum so we can cheer you on :D

Take care

Thanks Lola, it does seem like we are in the same boat. I will join in the Apri test thread in the general forum, thanks for the advice. Best of luck to you, maybe we will both get BFP's!!! :D
