Hi There,

I just had a FET transfer done with assisted hatching. I had a 9 cell 4b transfered and a 6 cell 3b . It was a three day transfer. I am not sure what the grading means. I know the 6 cell embryo was originally frozen at 8 cells. Is it common for the integrity of the embryo to decline after thaw?

I am also wondering if the 6 cell has a chance at implanting as I know they like to see them at 8 cell on day 3.

Thanks in advance :)

I'd be curious to know that too. As I have 2 embryos leftover and wonder what my chances will be like.
married since 1996. '98 went to first ob and given clomid and written off at the door. '99 went to second ob and he did a lap and said if we weren't pg in 6 months referral to RFP. '00 went to RFP and re said she couldn't explain why we couldn't get pg but didn't investigate ether. '03 natural bfp and had m/c at 12 weeks. '04 went to another ob who was an re. he did iui, testing. '05 iui with letrazole-bfn. '06 iui and clomid and cancelled cycle and went in for surgery. Lap and hysteroscopy. did iui and injections and bfn. Referred to RFP again because re got us as far as he could and re said I had high fsh, lh and pof and pcos and endo, also suggested egg donation. If it weren't for him, we wouldn't have dd. went to RFP and were told ivf was not a good idea because I respond poorly to meds. ok, let's move onto d/e. Couldn't do d/e until we had a failed cycle under out belts with my eggs. '07 did ivf with my eggs, retrived 3 and 1 made it to transfer- chemical. So moved onto d/e. '09 went back to RFP again for the orientation and consult for d/e and cycled in April '09- 13 eggs retrieved and 4 made it to day 3. Two transferred and bgp with dd. Dd born on 01/01/10!!!! Were crown the New Years Baby!!!! '14 came back for consult and did fet in Nov which was a bfn sad.png we're out of embies and options. Meet re/ob in '15 to discuss options. Considering adoption.

yes, it is common for embryos to lose some viability post-thaw. Nothing to worry about.

I am also wondering if the 6 cell has a chance at implanting as I know they like to see them at 8 cell on day 3.

yes, a very good chance!

Good luck!

Peter

Thanks in advance :)
