I was just wondering if anyone has actually gotten any frosties at MFC since they are notoriously strict, and if so, when did they call to let you know?

 

I went into this IVF cycle with 10 fertilized eggs, 6 of which were grade 1s, and a transfer of 1 blastocyst on Day 5, but no one would tell me anything on how the other embryos were doing. 

 

One of the nurses said I might get a call within a week if there's anything...

 I believe that Lucretia and LisaR33 both had frozen embies at the MFC.  I'm not sure if Lisa will chime in but I recall that she had actually never gotten a call and found out later.  When I had my 2nd IVF treatment at the MFC, I didn't find them very transparent about my embryos and that annoyed me.  I went into the ET not knowing how many embryos had made it to Day 5 and was told that only one would be transfered and that I would get a call later if any of them could be frozen.  Both at the OFC and Ovo, this info was communicated very early before ET which I appreciated.  At Ovo, I even got a call from the embryologist everyday (up until day 3 as we opted for a day 3 transfer) giving me an update on embryo quality etc.  Ovo uses the latest technology for embryo freezing (vitrification) and so they offer freezing of day 3 embryos which we did.  I believe the MFC still uses old cryo techniques which is why they are more strict.

 

Good luck with everything!!! Hopefully you will not need any frosties :)

Wow! A call every day as they were progressing? That would have been amazing!

 

It's too bad because I really like everything else about MFC.

 

I wrote to one of the nurses today to ask her to look into the status of my embryos, but she basically just told me that if there was anything frozen I would get a call. So frustrating!!

I am at RFP in Calgary and we get a call everyday as well plus they called me the day after our 5 day transfer to let us know they had froze 2 more that had caught up. Strange they don't let you know what is going on.

I can't remember the grade of all the embryos (I know there were a few grade 1s) but we had 9 embryos on Day 3 and only one made it to blast.  It seems like most women that cycle at the MFC only end up with one blast....strange....This is why we choose a Day 3 cycle for our last treatment at Ovo.  We ended up having two 8 cells grade 1, one 7 cells grade 1 and one 8 cells grade 2 embryos on Day 3 and transferred the two 8 cells grade 1 (froze the other two). Both embryos stuck and we now have 9 month old twin girls :).  I didn't want to risk pushing to Day 5 again and had a feeling that my embryos would do better inside the uterus than in the lab...I also wondered whether or not the lab conditions at the MFC were optimal...

Summer can you call them and talk with the embryology department? I did that at McGill. They call everyday until the day before ET but will only call on day 6 or 7 if you have something that was "freezeable." I decided to call anyway just to double check.

I say call 'em :)

I also got calls during stimming on days I didn't go to clinic...they were checking up on me to see how I'm feeling with the meds...  and calls everyday from ER to ET from nurses from my clinic every morning (report on embroyes).  I'm so happy with my choice of clinic and my doctor. doing research on clinics before starting IVF is a big benefit.

 

Good Luck to all the ladies

Hi ladies,

Went for my ER Sept 10th and had my transfer Sept 13th. 16 of my 22 eggs fertilized and 15 made it to day 2. I was told on day 2 that I had to go for a 3dt and was given a picture of my embryo when they did ET but no further info (grade, how many cells, etc!!!). Since day 2, I have NO information at all on how the other embries are doing. Did anyone else have that problem. I had a great experience at MFC but this is ruining it for me. I feel like they are not accessible at all (called 3 times and call was not returned) when it comes to that.

Liliana - From what I understand MFC does not give nanny reports other than the fertility report and the day 2 report when they tell you if you are a day 3 or 5 transfer.  They did call me on day 6 to tell me I had a frozen embryo though. As for the grades, they will tell you if you ask.  I always asked. I do find it odd that they have not called you back, that is not acceptable.   Did you try emailing Dr Mahutte directly? I always got an answer from him when I emailed him.
