Ok, I looked it up and it says 2011 was 38.4 for thawed frozen embryos under 35. I think I am reading it right. I typed in zip code for 08052. The difference with my practice is the doctor will take EVERYONE and they are known all over the place for their work with women with premature ovarian failure and high FSH using their own eggs. They do NOT factor them out in their stats and make that quite clear that they are not the type of clinic to turn away any case as a lost cause and do not "cancel" procedures to keep their ratings/% "higher."

I just looked up RMA and you are right - it says 19%! Oh boy oh boy oh boy!

Melissa... 70% success? If you don't mind sharing it, can you tell me the name of your clinic? I WILL TRAVEL ANYWHERE!!!

I think I am going off the deep end here!

I did not plan to test until at least Sunday, but somehow I ended up staring at pee sticks this morning...and OMG, I saw lines! They're faint, but real, I swear!! Even my husband saw them! Pics posted on main board

I also had my E2 and P4 tested today. E2 is 303, and P4 is 28. I was told that these were great numbers, but I'm concerned that they've dropped so much since transfer day (1330 and 43). Is this normal?

Ok, here is the update: I had 20 eggs taken out. 16 were mature and of those 16, 15 fertilized with ICSI. I am super happy with these numbers and was told we are on track for a 5 day transfer this Tuesday.

The egg retrieval was super easy. I started my progesterone and estrace today and feel super bloated. Is this normal? Also, the vaginal progesterone (l'vr never taken this before) is sort of gross. I think I will need to wear a panty liner for the next couple of weeks. No fun.

Wish you all luck. Hope Oct and Nov are all our lucky months!

I live in Oregon. For a long time our clinic had the highest success rates in the country, but we also take in ALL cases and never discriminate for the sake of higher success rates.
For FRESH our success rates are around 70% live birth. ( they were 73% last year) and egg donor is 80%.
They JUST changed to a brand new method of freezing which is 99% effective in a positive thaw for FETs.... Mine was 2 years ago, and it's like 88% likely we will have a good thaw.
And the thaw success rates drop 10% around 60%

Jenny!!!!!!! Awesome!!!!!!! Do we get to see pics!????!!!???'mm

Hoping- I'm taking endometrium progesterone suppositories.

How do fertilization rates work? The way my re was explaining it to me this morning was like I had over 90% fertilization: of 16 mature eggs, 15 fertilized. Or do you look at the total # they took out (20....4 of which were not mature), which would be 75%. Any ideas? Not that it really matters, just curious.

Still Waiting-
I was taking Decapeptyl injections (in my arms for 14 days)
And then they gave me a BIG dose... of decapeptyl. For a week, it was silent.
Last night was my 7th injection of Menopur. I am waiting for this appointment.
My DH said that he is going to ask a lot of questions at the doctor because he sees I am worried to death! More to follow! Good Morning All!!!

Wowza Jenny!!!!!!!!!! Those are blaring!!!!!!

Cali- we were talking about live birth rates. Not fertilization rates. Those differ from person to person depending on diagnosis. Where as live birth rates are closely monitored and tracked by the CDC at each clinic.

I am an emotional mess today! I was a lump of tears in my husband's arms just a short while ago. I tried a different brand of hpt this morning & saw nothing while yesterday saw a nice pink line & the day before that saw nothing. This is super confusing. I have another different brand that I could try later this afternoon or could wait until tomorrow. The back & forth of positive & negative day to day is really driving me bananas. What do you all think I should do - wait a day or two to try another or not? My blood test is Wednesday.

67.6 for fresh or frozen? For frozen it would be amazing.
For fresh it would be pretty darn good too! You really want to look at HOW MANY cycles they have done, and how many embryos are transferred on average.

But it sounds like you are lucky and have a great clinic!!!!

Jill, how many days past transfer are you????

When I was pg with the twins, I had a light positive 8dpo ( 3 days past transfer) super crazy then the next day ( 9dpo) it was gone, then I peed again a few hours later and it was back, super faint. Then GONE again!!!!!
It wasn't until (10 dpo/ 5 days past transfer) that I saw a consistent faint line. And that was with TWINS, so if you have one healthy bean then it can take until 11 or 12 dpo to have consistent HCG in your system to be picked up. Also if you are peeing frequently that will contribute.

Still Waiting- I went to the doctor... She says that I have at least 16 eggs. The largest were 14-15mm. So... I will be taking 3 more days of Menopur, She upped my doses to 5 powers/2 waters. (3 power/1 water and 2 powder/1 water)I have to take two injections! I go back on Tuesday! So it looks like maybe my ER will be Thursday or Saturday. (They do not work on Fridays in Kuwait) My DH looked so happy when he saw the eggs on U/S.
I am happy to read that other people are getting Pregnant! It makes all the pain that I am feeling worth it! Also my levels were 2182... I am not sure what they were measuring. Does anyone? (To Google I go!) Good Night Ladies! Kisses from Kuwait!

Amber, that's awesome news! Are you doing am/pm shots or two at one time? That sounds perfect

That was most likely your estrogen level. My clinic never gives that to me lol...so I don't know much about where the levels should be, but I'm sure it's great

YAY...so close now!
