2nd FET attempt — The Bump

2nd FET attempt

Hi all..Through 3 egg retrievals we banked 5 embryos that made it through PGD testing.  Our first FET we transferred one, and it was unsuccessful.  Gearing up for the next FET.  Any advice on how many?  Our clinic will only do 1 or 2 because of the PGD results.

    There's good reasoning on both sides of this argument, and it all comes down to your particulars. Talk to your doc and OH--only you can make this decision.

    Good luck!

  • Good Luck!  Only transfer the number you are will to go to full term.  If you are ok with twins, then 2 isn't so bad.  It is a tough decision.

    TTC since May 2012

    IVF prep September 2013 cancelled due to Ovarian Cyst

    All welcome!
  • THank you all for the advice!  Transferred 1..Pregnancy test next Weds....
  • Best of luck!  I prefer to up my chances even if its just a little bit and transfer 2.  We are comfortable with twins.  It really depends what you are comfortable with. 
    ***SIGGY WARNING***

    DX: Unexplained
    6 Failed IUIs (Clomid and Gonal F).  
    IVF #1 began August 2013- BC, 4 days of Estrace, stimmed with Gonal F and Menopur, Ganirelix, 9R 5M 5F, Medrol and Doxycycline, 5 day transfer of 2 early blastocysts- good quality, Progesterone, Estrace, and baby aspirin, BETA on 9/20 BFN,   IVF #2 began September 2013, stimming with Gonal F (higher dose) and Menopur, Ganirelix, 18R 14M 9F with ICSI, 5 day transfer of 2 BBs one was starting to hatch, 2 frosties: 1  BB and 1 AC, BETA on 10/21, BFN BETA was a 5- chemical 
    Getting some more testing and trying to figure out what the issue is before FET in December, started acupuncture on 11/10, RLP and some other BW nothing major to report except slightly high Prolactin. Prolactin was slightly high when I started with my RE and I already had an MRI which was Neg.  Endo biopsy=negative.  WTF is wrong with us???
    12/18/13 FET of 1 BB and 1 AC.  Hoping for a miracle.  Beta 12/26 Low BETA-8 2nd BETA 5- chemical
    After 3 failed transfers IDK where to go from here.  Still no real answers as to why this isn't working.  Getting a second opinion in February and looking into immune testing.  
    2/14- NEW RE- Immune testing showed a partial dq alpha match with DH- On prednisone and did intralipids prior to transfer.  3/14 Lupron, gonal f, menopur, HGH.  ER 15 mature all 15 fertilized!  5dt of an early blast grade 1 and an expanded blast grade 2.  BETA on 4/21.  1 grade 2 embryo frozen

    Hey @meggs51 I just finished my FET with a CGH tested embryo. We only transferred one and he stuck  but didn't stay for long :( My RE is suggesting me transfer 2 next time. I am willing to transfer 2 but I just don't want to loose 2 if it doesn't work! Hope you are feeling good about whichever decsion you are making!
