WWIFVD? Fresh IVF vs FET

Assuming IVF #2 is a BFN WWIFVD?

We have 1 frosty from this cycle stored @ my RE's old practice (she moved in the midst of this IVF).  While I'm tempted to just use it & then assuming that also doesn't work move on to follow my RE to her new practice all I can hear in my head is "save it for later".  I'm 33, so not AMA but given we're past the 4 year TTC mark & my issues likely being egg related I'm thinking saving an embryo from when I was younger should God forbid we're still here in a year TTC.  Regardless of whether we do IVF or FET we'd be waiting a cycle or 2 to recoup financially.

Any & all feedback is appreciated.

Re: WWIFVD? Fresh IVF vs FET

  • for me it would depend on the quality of the embryo.  We are doing a sFET today with our last remaining embryo, but it has the highest grade my clinic gives.  If it were mediocre, I'd probably do a fresh cycle and save it for now.

    I hope it's just too early for you, though

  • I hope you are just too early but if not, I would do a fresh cycle if you would like more than one kid. If you used the you have and it works, great but you'd be that much older trying again later for a second. Hang in there!!

    That's where my concern comes in.  If this IVF works I'll be 34 when I'm due & if we tried for more kids (unsure @ this point) I'd be @ least 35 when that happened (if we only waited not even a year).

  • I would probably go for it and use it, but we are OOP and I would do anything to avoid another full fresh cycle if I can. 

    GL with whatever you guys decide!

  • I agree with Gregermis. If it is great quality, I would use it now. If it is so-so, I would move on to another fresh cycle. I also have a tendency to think about the long-term future, but in general, I think it is best to base decisions on the present since the first and immediate goal is a healthy baby now.
    IUIs #1-3 (1x unmedicated, 2x Clomid) = 2 BFNs, 1 m/c at 7w3d
    IUIs #4-6 (injects) = 3 BFNs
    IVF #1 = BFN
    FET #1 = BFN
    FET #2 = BFN
    IVF #2 = BFP, b/g twins lost at 20w due to partial abruption/PPROM
    IVF #3 = c/p 5w2d
    Long-shot Clomid/Prednisone cycle before next IVF = BFP, our beautiful, healthy girl born 6/26/13!
