GHOST or anyone with stats o BB grade blasts

Postby silntbob » Thu May 17, 2012 8:46 pm

Ghost or anyone else who might know about this,

Do you know of any stats for BB grade blasts? I'm starting an FET cycle and the majority of my frozen blasts are grade BB. I have one 6AB as well. I was curious if the success rate with BB grade blasts is lmuch lower compared to AA blasts.

Thank you.

You should ask your clinic. Embryo grading is somewhat subjective, even with the Gardner/Schoolcraft system your clinic is using, and the grade given by one clinic might not match the grade another would give. More importantly, FET programs vary greatly in technique and performance.

Unfortunately when I asked my clinic all they said were our rates for FET are great and they showed me some paper they are about to publish quoting something like 70% success rates. I tried asking if the quality of my embryos was in line with their average patient and the doctor indicated that they were, but he never went into more detail. I feel like I never get a straight answer from them. I guess the only way I'll know is by doing another cycle and seeing what happens.
