Cycle 1 – all embryos arrested overnight on day 2, nothing to transfer

Cycle 2 and 3 – 2 embryos on day 3, both transferred, BFN

Cycle 4 – 3 blast, not tested, 2 transferred – BFP with singleton.  m/c 8 weeks

Cycle 5 – 2 blasts (both tested normal), 2 transfered (1 from cycle 4, one from cycle 5).  BFP… TBD.  4w5d today, still in beta hell week since my numbers didn’t double.

My best friend did IVF.  She is 38 (pregnant at 38, baby born 2 days ago!).  This was her third transfer, with transferring one embryo each time.

Prettysmile40 :  I have heard from personal stories (and even fertility specialists) that for many people, the 3rd IVF cycle results in a live birth. Also I heard from a doctor say that twins results in about 20% of pregnancies but considering the people I know who had IVF, it seems much higher than that. Nearly half of the people I know who had confirmed IVF had twins (about 7 or 8 couples). Not sure if those were just isolated events. I don’t have any statiscal proof to enter a link here but just simply word of mouth, personal observation and wanted to share them on your thread.

My SIL had 4 frozen embryos. She transferred 2 and is currently pregnant with 1.  This was the first try.  The two remain embryos were tested and one is abnormal so she has one frozen embryo left.

Prettysmile40 :  Our third transfer was successful, second full IVF cycle. We did a fresh and frozen transfer from our first cycle and neither we’re successful. Then we did a frozen transfer from our second cycle with PGS testing and that was suscessful. We only ever transferred one embryo because we did not want the risks of a twin pregnancy.

Prettysmile40 :  Thanks! I’m 18 weeks pregnant now. That is smart to just do one at a time – not just because two babies are extra work, but there are a lot of scary complications with twin pregnancies that you might as well just try to avoid. And actually, success rates are higher transferring one at a time over two cycles vs two at once. Good luck!!

I am currently 14 weeks pregnant from a fresh single transfer from our first cycle. We also have one in the freezer. So far, so good. I’m 38 for what it’s worth.

Clinic #1: Cycle #1 IVF with ICSI resulted in 7 untested freeze-all blasts. Had 3 frozen transfers that all resulted in BFN’s.

Moved onto Clinic #2: Cycle #2 IVF with ICSI resulted in 10 freeze-all blasts. 8 out of 10 blasts were PGS normal. Transferred singleton= BFP! Currently, 18 weeks pregnant. Both DH and I are 34.

Good luck!

We had 2 retrievals and then 1 FET following that before a successful cycle. We implanted 2 and we have twins on the way. Our situation was a bit unique though and I’d say odds are you’ll end up with only 1 retrieval, assuming you end up with some good quality embryos! If you don’t want twins definitley just do one, although there is also the (small) chance of one embryo splitting resulting in identical twins! Our IVF doctor warned us that we could end up with triplets if one egg split, but luckily that didn’t happen.
