Poll for successful IVFers- # embies vs # babies

Postby gadzooks » Tue Nov 02, 2010 12:21 pm

I'm curious to see the numbers for successful IVF cycles! I've made up a little poll to see what the successful outcomes were. I accounted for natural splitting, and "other" for any combos (or high orders of multiples!) I didn't put down.

Thanks!

I did IVF 2 years ago, and have a happy healthy 15 month old son to show for it. I started with somewhat high betas, and had 2 implant but only one grew. We put 2 embies back in.

I am now doing a donor egg IVF cycle, and if we have enough we plan to put 2 embies back in.

Twins here. Although I put back 3 embies. However, I knew one of the three wasn't the greatest quality. Beta's were indicative of a singleton too.

I wonder how many of the "embryos" were blasts? I voted as 3 embryos but I really had 3 day 5 blastocysts. 2 implanted and out of the 2, one wasn't making it. It made for some very strange beta results. They never doubled. Some in the poll may even be day 6 blasts if they were FET.

It would be interesting to know how many were embryos versus blasts. Or I could have put "how many in versus how many out" and kept it generic! Sorry, I didn't mean to exclude blasts!!! It's interesting that most the people who have answered got singletons, though!
