Just need an opinion please. If my AMH is 3.0 pmol/L and my FSH is still under 10, is it worth trying for an IVF one more tie? I'm 43 and I have tried for two IVFs already, both failed at the implantation stage. I had 2 embryos transferred each time, last time they were defined as good quality (8 cell and 5 cell). Thank you.
I need to know after the embryo transfer procedure in an IVF
Hello, I need to know after the embryo transfer procedure in an IVF treatment, is constant continuous pain an indicator of a failed implantation? I always have pain after the ovulation normally, so wondering if the implantation was successful, then probably the pain should not be there anymore? Thank you.

I have a question please, in an IVF treatment with two
Hi there, I have a question please, in an IVF treatment with two embryos transferred in day 3 (marked as good quality embryos of 5 cell and 8 cell respectively) what could be some causes of failure to implant, generally speaking? Uterus lining was very good, all other tests very good. Thank you.
I'm 5 weeks and 2 days into pregnancy after a frozen embryo
I'm 5 weeks and 2 days into pregnancy after a frozen embryo transfer. Everything seemed to be going fine - beta hcg was increasing and had symptoms of pregnancy. Then Wednesday night - when I was 5 weeks and had just had my second beta and was told all was good earlier that day- I experienced bad cramping and bright red bleeding, including a clot. Went for an internal ultrasound on Thursday morning and the gestational sac was still present and we could even see the yolk sac. I was told it was a threatened miscarriage but at this point it was possible it was still fine.The cramping has stopped and the bleeding has changed to just brownish discharge (still with some small clots). I have another ultrasound scheduled for next week. What is the chance that this pregnancy is still viable?
We have frozen embryos to be implanted into a surrogate.
We have frozen embryos to be implanted into a surrogate. Once we find a surrogate, what is the procedure that she has to go through to implant one of the frozen embryos into her? Is it done surgically or as simple insertion? Does she need any hormone treatments or medications to increase the chances of the embryo taking? Does she need any blood tests to find out when is the best time to implant the embryo?

I had two miscarriages -- first one in Jul 2014 and
Hello,I had two miscarriages -- first one in Jul 2014 and second one in Nov 2014. After these miscarriages I started taking infertility treatment (IVF / PGD).As part of the tests that I was asked to take -- I was diagnosed with elevated Cardiolipin levels in Jan 2015 and my fertility specialist asked me to repeat the test. A repeat test done in Feb 2015 did confirm a diagnosis of ‘Anti-phospholipid antibody' syndrome.My fertility specialist suggested taking Lovenox for at least the first three months of pregnancy. This instruction was given in 2015. However the FET transfer that I did in 2015 failed, and I never got pregnant in 2015.Recently, I had a 5 day blastocyst transferred (FET) on April 1st 2016. The bHCG blood tests done on April 11th and April 13th have confirmed my pregnancy. I am currently 4 weeks 3 days pregnant. I reminded my clinic regarding high Cardiolipin levels and the nurse has advised me to take Lovenox injection daily starting tonight.Does this sound ok to you? Is it safe to start Lovenox now?Also, would the blood test taken last year would be considered valid, or do I have to repeat the blood test before taking Lovenox.Do you have any other thoughts around this?Thanks.
I had a day 5 blastocyst embryo transfer four days ago. Due
Hi Dr,I had a day 5 blastocyst embryo transfer four days ago. Due to the anxiety of this transfer working I have had a very hard time sleeping at night. Because I have been so desperate to sleep, in the last four days I have taken 1 Valium (5mg) and also a 3mg melatonin tablet as well as a couple of paracetamol. I'm starting to worry now that the medication I have taken over the last few nights may impact negatively on the embryo implanting? Is that something to worry about?
I had an embryo transfer this afternoon with one perfect
I had an embryo transfer this afternoon with one perfect hatching blast. Tonight I was feeling cold in my hotel room while watching tv, so for some crazy reason, I put on my down jacket. However, I fell asleep and woke up a couple of hours later sweating. Now I am fearful that I have destroyed the embryo by raising my core temp.
