Lots of hugs stinas. Were you able to get an appointment?
Jchic, those are amazing numbers.
Jersey, it totally depend on what kind of protocol your doctor likes to use. My current dic at RMA NY likes a long down reg protocol, with 3 weeks of bcp to start.
But it's seems that others, especially at RMA nj, do shorter protocols. The shorter ones seem to yield less total eggs retrieved (just my observation), but the short protocol seems to yield a higher percent of mature eggs and eggs that fertilize. It seems like the total number of eggs that make it to blast seem about the same. I'm really not sure why doctors prefer one protocol over the other.
Wow those are some great numbers for RMA NJ! Daisy that sounds like a good plan you have. Maybe a good idea to make the consult since sometimes it can take a while and then you can always cancel if you decide to stay in NY.
Welcome Stinas I'm sorry to hear about your DH's problem but I'm sure you will get it squared away, hopefully a blockage like you said.
Jchic - Great numbers for your IUI's!! You will be getting your BFP in no time
I never understood the differnce btwn short and long and why some use long and some use short. I guess it will just remain a mystery. I wish I could do short and get things moving faster
Thanks blue. I'm going ask about long vs. short at my next appointment and will report back. I'm going to set up an initial consult at RMA nj and see how it goes. If I can get my current doctor to let me do injectables next cycle, I could be doing IVF as soon as may, if it's a short protocol.
Thanks Jchic. We dtd on cd 10, because I was assuming iuis would be cd 12 & 13. I was soooo tired on cd 11 so we didn't that night, and we didnt last night either. I was considering doing it tonight if his count is high today.
I have a question as far as IVF after IUI goes, if any of you ladies know...are you always prescribed BC pills and have to wait a month or so to regulate your cycle?
I thought i could go right to ivf after iui but they put me on bcp for a month. He explained its only purpose is to make scheduling easier. For example, they gave me a date to start stimming AF or no AF so i would be on track. If you don't go on bcp, the scheduling would be harder on them. Some clinics just have you call when AF comes & make your appts then.
So the most recent data is from 2010 (because pregnancy data from 2011 is not all in yet, since those getting pregnant in late 2011 are still pregnant). I'm just going to give the data for if you are under 35, to keep it simple. If you want the data for an older age range I'm happy to provide it - let me know.
- percentage of cycles resulting in pregnancies: 54.7%
- percentage of cycles resulting in live births: 47.9 %
- percentage of twins: 36.5%
- percentage of trips or more: 1.7%
- percentage of FET resulting in live births: 22%
- percentage of cycles resulting in pregnancies: 68.3%
- percentage of cycles resulting in live births: 60.9%
- percentage of twins: 38.3%
- percentage of trips or more: 0.3%
- percentage of FET resulting in live births: 62.6%
The # that concerns me most is the FET rate. I don't know how that could vary that much. I would ask about that. Sounds like nj has ny beat there. Also, i wonder what % of embies get frozen. Some places will only freeze perfect blasts and discard the rests & perfect blasts are rare.
Hi! Dr. Morris wont really discuss my IVF until my IUI is done with but during my consult, she mentioned that the AF before starting IVF protocol you are on BCP or something else for about 2 weeks, then you start IVF stuff. So about 6 weeks total from start to prego test. I think this is standard for RMA NJ
