hello, I did a fresh cycle last year with an egg donar. She was 34 and I was 37. We had 13 embryos, then by transfer day we ended up with 4. We transferred 2 and put the other 2 on ice. We have an adorable 6mos old daughter from that cycle. My question is that if we were sucessful from the fresh cycle, will there be sucess from an fet? I am grateful for the one we have and the amazing gift my friend has given us but I'd like one more.
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.

Well, I have not had the best of luck with FET's. I have done 4-5 FET cycles and ALL were BFN's. I have done 4 fresh cycles and 3 of those were BFP's. However, with my last FET, my RE used some new thawing technology that they recently put into use and he told me that this has helped a lot of women achieve frozen success at his clinic. My hopes still weren't up, but lo and behold, he was right and now I am pregnant with twins from my last FET. I would ask your RE what their success rates are for the last couple of years....that will tell you a lot....and also ask them when the last time they updated their thawing technology is. Good luck!
