Anyone PG after FET?

Post by caz1 » Tue May 31, 2005 4:23 pm

HI - we have a beautiful daughter through ICSI (VERY severe male factor)
We have 4 embies in the freezer and was looking for any inspirational stories?! We are so lucky to havea child at all that I dont want to seemgreedy but I'd be lying if I said I wasnt thinking a bit about another one sometime.
I understand that pregnancy rates through FET arent great -anyone know more than me?!

All the best

the rates do not differ that much from fresh ivf/icsi.

the biggest danger is the defreezing... (about 40/50% does not survive)

(I had 5 cryo's but non of them survived).

once they survived the procedure of defreezing... your chances are only slightly less than from fresh ivf/icsi.

but go for it!

6 is an good amount!!

Hi caz

FET they do have a slighty lower sucess rate but there have been a few stories on here of them working

i am 33weeks PG with twins from having a medicated FET before the embies were frozen they were both 4 cell and when they thawed they were 3 cell and now they are growing nicely and doing well

i felt less stressed having a fet plus they are cheaper and they can work so really are worth a go

GOOD LUCK

Caz,

I have two beautiful 8 month old identical twin girls from a FET. I call them my snow babies. This was successful after a failed fresh ICSI cycle in Dec. of 2003.

Just to give you some hope.....Four frozen embryos were transferred, two took, and one split. We had triplets until about 8 weeks into the pregnancy. We have been blessed with two baby girls.

Good luck,
Denise

I did a medicated cyle FET and am happy to tell you
that Iam pregnant. And its a first cycle as well .
Once they survive thawing they are as good as fresh ones.


GOOD LUCK AND LOTS OF PMA AND BABY DUST TO YOU.

Hi all

I have never posted on this side before! I am preparing for my second FET in the next couple of weeks. We had a -ve frostie cycle in March.

I have been feeling really quite down about the stats. and it has been lovely to hear success stories. We had 12 frozen, and thawed 4 last time (although really only 1 divided to 4 cell. It was 'average' according to the embryologist)

I have started to think that probably all my frosties will not make the grade - at least I can thaw a good amount.

Anyway, lovely to hear nice things :D Hope I will be over more often next month!

LUMI

You have a good number and dont worry. I too thot i was going to loose my embies when thawing but only two were thawed and they survived. I transfered 2 embies , 4-cell and 5-cell grade 1. Rested for the whole two weeks, it was hard but it has paid well. I just didnt want taking any chances, also had to stopeating and doing a lot of things , HOW I LIKE CHEESE, but I had to go for 2wks without it. Dont worry like I said as long as they thaw your chances are just the same as the fresh cycle one.

GOOD LUCK AND REST ENOUGH BEFORE AND AFTER ET.
