Hi just wondering what the success rates are for defrosting embies, we have 2 left and I just wondered if anyone knew what the chances might be of any of them making it through process to get to ET?

Thanks CJ x

Hi Lisa, I'm not having it done yet, hopfully in Nov (have consultants appointment in sept) but I have no idea if we will even get to ET :-\, I really hope you are lucky I will look out for your posts with great interest.

I have had FET before which resulted in my twin boys but I feel I have had my luck now and I can't see how we could ever be that lucky again (or even deserve to be) it's like winning the lottery it can't happen twice, but I have to try as now I have the boys I really see those embies a little babies and I really want to give them a chance.

We defrosted 5 last time and they all survived that but only 2 were alive (or what ever the right word is) the next day so that makes me think we won't even get to ET.
It's something I didn't think about before because we had 7 but with only 2 now I just really wanted to hear what our chance might be..or any positive stories.

I wish you all the luck in the world that they make it through :) xxx

Hello CJ and Lisa,

Lisa, it can happen twice! I have a 3 year old daughter from my 1st IVF and am 16 weeks pregnant with my 2nd baby. I know what you mean about feeling like you don't deserve to be so lucky. I feel very guilty because my treatments both worked first time and even feel like I've been greedy.
As for thawing, I had 8 embys but the first 2 thawed with no problems.

love chloe xxxxxx

Hi Chloe, (I think that post was for me although it was address to Lisa ??:))

Wow that's amazing both first time, although mine failed the first time I also consider my self very very lucky to have got their on my 2nd go because you read about so many on their 5th and 6th goes and it's heartbreaking.
Thats exactly how I felt writing this question "greedy" and a bit  :-[, I having been thinking about posting this for days because I was so worried about offending people who have yet to have a child.

It's really great to read your story though, and huge congrats  on your PG.
Was it those first two you defrosted that gave you your PG now? I feel we have made these embies and are very lucky to have them ( as so many don't have any to freeze)  and it's only right that we should give them a chance especially as it would make us so happy :)

Love CJ x

Hi Scrappy

I'm sorry to hear of your failed IVF cycle  :(.  My clinic defrosts 2 at a time if the first two defrost ok and are good quality then they leave the other embryos frozen, if however the first two don't survive the thawing etc then they will defrost the other two and so on.  Your not stupid to ask the question its a good question.  Its good that you have got 6 frosties.  Good luck with you FET hope you get a  ^BFP^
