Hello Dr. Peter Hollands,

I was just curious; What percentage of frozen embryo's, that make it to a blastocyst, survive the thawing process?

We have one frozen blast from our current cycle and I just wanted to know it's chances of survival when it is thawed for an future FET. On day 3, it was a 4 cell, B grade and on day 6 was a frozen since it made developed into a blastocyst.

Thanks so much for taking the time to answer everyones questions,
LMC

Hello Dr. Peter Hollands,

The best clinics have a 70-80% successful blastocyst thawing rate

We have one frozen blast from our current cycle and I just wanted to know it's chances of survival when it is thawed for an future FET. On day 3, it was a 4 cell, B grade and on day 6 was a frozen since it made developed into a blastocyst.

This sounds like a good embryo and it should do well.

Good luck!

Peter

Hi doctor I also have two embryo's in Argentina, one on day 3 was a 8 cell and the other was 13 cells and both made it to blastocyst so they were frozen. Do you think it would be a good bet to go back and make another try ?
The first time I had two very good 8 cell on day three implanted and none took, I had got a flu of sorts and didnt even get pregnant.

Also do you think its possible to have them sent here in Quebec ?
I did ask the doctor about them and he said I might as well do another fresh cycle instead !!! yet the donor was 22 and the embryo's looked good.

Please advise,

Thank You,

I too have a question too, I did a donar cycle in 2009 with 13 eggs, then they went to fertilize then 7 arrested, then 2 more. We transferred 2 and I got pregnant and have a healthy baby girl. We're looking to do an fet and wondered if they embryos will make it to thaw and what our chances of sucess since it was from a donar cycle? Any insigt would be much appreciated.
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.
