Beta = Fail

A year ago today, I had a miscarriage.  Now, I also get to remember it as the day my IVF #1 was a BFN!  I'm crushed!  I just don't understand how this happened when everything looked so good.  The embryologist said my two blasts were perfect!.  She even said with my age that my risk of multiples would be really high and I should be prepared for that.  Now I have nothing but a bruised stomach and a depleted savings account.  But I've decided I'm done crying about it.  Crying isn't going to make me pregnant.  We are scheduled to meet with my RE next Thursday and I'm interested to see what he'll have to say.  Then DH and I can plan what to do next.

The light at the end of our tunnel is we have 1 frostie waiting for us.  Which leads me to a question?  The embryologist told me that 50% of all frozen embros survive the thaw.  Has anyone heard of that?  Does the percent sound correct?

Happily married Since May 2008. TTC#1 Since May 2010.

Re: Beta = Fail

  • ((hugs)) BFNs are always so hard.

    We have had a very poor thaw rate, but I know that we are a rare case. I would say 50% is erring on the side of caution. Good luck with your FET. They are much easier than a fresh.

  • I'm so sorry.  It's hard to not have IVF#1 work when you have so much invested.

    I think 50% sounds low for thaw rate.  In recent years, advanced labs began using vitrification for frozen embryos.  The thaw rate for vitrified embryos is closer to 90% so you should see how yours were frozen, if you don't know already.  FWIW, the embryologist told us that our two looked better after thawing than they did in the pics from before they were frozen.

  • Oh ksfrye, I am SO sorry. The only thing worse than bad news is more bad news. Its a terrible day, and I hope you can have a good cry. You deserve that (and OH so much more!) The bruised soul, the bruised savings, the bruised body... its just awful. I hope that your doctor has some ideas for you at you WTF next Thursday. 

    Its great that you have a frostie there. 50% sounds very cautious on his part. I think that the thaw rate is a good bit higher, but I am not so studied on that. I've never had one.

    With such perfect blasts, it still does happen that they are not sound enough to survive. Doctors only know what they can see for the 5 days they have the embryos. Perhaps he will order some karotype testing before FET. I am curious to know what he has to say.

    Sending you lots of strength, and I hope you and your husband can find a way to heal and move ahead. Hugs.

  • I'm so sorry about your BFN and that you found out today of all days. I feel like it's a total crap shoot and that sucks! At my ER I had one egg retrieved that was called "beautiful," but it failed to fertilize. So disappointing to hear positive words then have it turn out poorly. I hope your frostie not only survives the thaw but becomes your take home baby!

  • I'm so sorry.  :(   I do hope that you will move forward with the FET and that things go much better!  I do agree with PPs that 50% thaw survival sounds conservative.  My RE told me 95% make it out of thaw.  But it does depend on method and clinic, so ask more questions at your next visit.  GL and hugs.  

    TTC 10/11. HSG 2/12 normal. DH's SA low normal count. IUI 2/12. BFP 3/8/12. 4/26/12 missed mc. RE consult 5/17/12. IVF #1 ER 7/13/12 53R, 41M ICSIed, 32F, 8 5d, 6 6d blasts - all PGD/frozen. PGD results 1 normal M and 1 normal F, 1 maybe M. FET 9/6, transferred 1 F embie. Beta 9/15 BFN. FET#2 planned for 11/2012 put off until 2013. Surprise BFP 11/21/12!! My son was born on 7/24/13!

  • Nothing to add on the thaw rate - although form readings I did think it was around 90%.

    But HUGE hugs coming your way. So sorry about this bad news. Your strength is admirable.
