Embryo Glue?? — The Bump

Embryo Glue??

So, I'm getting ready to meet with my Dr next week to talk about my cycle and how we can make changes for the next one and I have really been thinking about trying to see if we could do embryo glue. Has anyone used it and found success? Both transfers ended in BFN so I'm thinking we are having implantation failure and would love thoughts.

  • I used it with one of my cycles (not sure which one- they blur) and it didn't work for me. BUT I have heard great results from it! 
    What they told me, it won't force a bad pregnancy to stick, but will help a good one succeed!

  • It's an amino acid that they put the embryo in before placing it into the uterus. It's supposed to help the embryo adhere to the lining better.

  • I am glad to see that it has worked for some! I am just really ready to try just about anything at this point!! This is one article that I read on it. I am still not 100% sure of the exact process but if my clinic will allow I think I definately want to try this on this try.
