Df and I have had 3 lots of private ivf in the past 2yrs, getting up to £20k ouch, but would gladly pay any amount if had worked but as we all know there is now guarantee sad

sadly all 3 failed, tho 3rd attempt we managed to freeze 5 embroys which didnt happen in 1&2

Financially, emotionally and mentally we are at our limit sad but also know we have 5 chances still and have to take them

depending what you read some say frozen arent as a good and others say better

obv the cost is less then a normal cycle plus less drugs, no injections - whoop smile and clinic says it takes about 20 days starting from your period

who has had a successful pregnancy out of a frozen cycle

Thank you xx

I visited a baby last week who was at one point a frozen embryo - parents 'fresh' cycle wasn't a success, frozen worked perfectly.

He's a cutie, making me all broody!

I remember this article from a few years ago: www.telegraph.co.uk/news/science/science-news/9509641/Frozen-embryos-better-for-IVF-treatment.html

Good luck if you do decide to go for it.

I am currently 35 weeks pregnant with twins from 2 frozen embryos. At our clinic there was very little difference in pregnancy rates from fresh or frozen. I found the process pretty easy and is definitely much quicker. Good luck

My Dsis has a beautiful DD thanks to a frozen embryo.
Her first cycle which was fresh worked but sadly she miscarried at 6 weeks then they used the frozen and 9 months later my D Niece arrived after a very easy pregnancy smile

thanks again flowers

spoke to my clinic today, he said frosties are looking good and tho 5/10% chnace of one defrosting and not being ok, it is rare but then would defrost another

apparently take about 30 mins ..........

we are going to try a fet x

joleyn Wed 20-Jan-16 21:57:37

It's amazing how quick they can defrost! One of mine did nothing til literally 10 mins before transfer but it obviously was okay. One of our consultants said there is a school of thought now that freezing embryos is another way of checking for quality as only good ones survive. They did say both of ours looked worse than they did when fresh but they still both worked. Good luck again Xx

Blond Good luck. Just to let you know my fresh round of IVF failed, first FET is a lovely toddler, and I'm 24 weeks pregnant after a second FET now.

Blondeshavemorefun Thu 28-Jan-16 14:44:09

Congrats drizzle smile

Did you have 2 put back in each time

I love twins and look after them lots but if I had twins I wouldn't be able to work

But also know 2 put back in is a better chance

Ahhhhhhhh

Dannygirl Fri 29-Jan-16 21:59:51

I had success with a little frostie, he was frozen for about 3 years and transferred between clinics on a courier! He is now a gorgeous nearly 2 year old. Go for it! And very best of luck xxxx

Blondeshavemorefun Sat 30-Jan-16 10:46:36

Unusual to change clinics/transfer

Can I ask why?

Did you have doubts about clinic?

And yah for 2yr

So seems Frosties are capable of attaching as well as fresh?

Dannygirl Sun 31-Jan-16 09:24:52

Hi there, the first clinic said they couldn't help me any more after several failed attempts but I wasn't ready to give up so I found a clinic with better success rates who pioneered new treatments (ARGC). Apparently moving clinics is more common that we might think! Even internationally. All the best of luck X

Blondeshavemorefun Sun 31-Jan-16 10:06:50

Never heard of a clinic saying they can't help you anymore - but obv going to a different one worked for you smile

Chintaria Sun 31-Jan-16 17:56:19

My two year old dd was a frozen embryo. I really didn't think a FET would work but it did!

Good luck smile

Blonds no both my FET were SET. They were nice blasts though... I couldn't have dealt with twins and since I was "young" (34 at the time) and we made so many good embies (1 fresh transfer and 6 frosties) they strongly adviced only to do SET at the first few attempts.

Blondeshavemorefun Mon 01-Feb-16 08:51:30

I had one fresh and have 5 good Frosties

They've given me a chance to have 2 back now where as fresh they said only one

I'm really dithering as I'm 42.5 so will be 43.5 if successful when born and tho I love twins (I'm a nanny and maternity nurse) and have twins at moment for work - if I had twins I would struggle to work - plus would I be worn out....,,,,,,,

Tho if they put two back then double chance least one will take

Blondeshavemorefun Mon 01-Feb-16 08:51:54

Meant to say thanks lemon

lucieloos Mon 01-Feb-16 22:43:03

It's not actually double the chance that one will take if you put 2 back. It only increases the chance of success by a small amount but greatly increases the likelihood of twins.

RNBrie Mon 01-Feb-16 22:49:42

I donated eggs. The fresh cycle failed but they had a daughter from a frozen cycle a year later. Best of luck smile

waitingimpatient Thu 04-Feb-16 18:38:24

Can I ask whether people's embryos were day 2/3/5 embryos ?

I had a FeT in October with a top grade day 3 embryo but it failed. We have 2 day 2 embryos frozen and I'm worried there's very little chance of success with a day 2 embryo so would love to hear of any success stories

Blondeshavemorefun Thu 04-Feb-16 20:31:23

Tbh I've never heard of 2 days embryos - I was under the impression if they didn't last 3 days they were useless ?

But apologies if that's not right

Why didn't they leave for 3 days then freeze or let alone blast them then leave to 5 and freeze

My last fresh was a 5day AAA basically the best you can get - it failed sad

My friend years ago had 3day grade c x2 transferred and told poor quality and not to get hopes up - and my godson and twin is 11 now !!!!

Seems makes no diff on grade iyswim

Rnbrie. That's a lovely thing you did. A real gift to a childless couple
