Dear Peter

Hope you don`t mind me bombarding you with loads of questions! ...

I had EC on Friday at the Hammersmith Hospital & got 18 eggs. I was also a bit sick when I cam round & there was a little extra fluid round the follicles (think that`s right) & E2 levels of 15,000.

Anyway, upshot is that as they are quite conservative at that clinic they felt that I was at risk of OHSS. Thus, the 11 fertilised embies have been frozen. Is the sucess of pg. with FET much less? Also, how many would they defrost? If it`s just the 2 could they both defrost & then be abnormal? Also how soon could I have the FET? At HH they are talking about 3-4 months!!

I`m asking all these questions as I feel a bit cheated having not had the chance to have ET this cycle.

Thank you for your time & help.

Not at all!

I had EC on Friday at the Hammersmith Hospital & got 18 eggs. I was also a bit sick when I cam round & there was a little extra fluid round the follicles (think that`s right) & E2 levels of 15,000.

It depends on the clinic but on average FET is about 10% lower than the fresh pregnancy rate of the clinic.

Also, how many would they defrost?

It is common practice to thaw until 2 good embryos are obtained, i.e. thaw 2 first and then decide on waht to do from there.

If it`s just the 2 could they both defrost & then be abnormal?

No, see above

Also how soon could I have the FET?

As\soon as the OHSS goes away

At HH they are talking about 3-4 months!!

That might be sensible to allow everything to settle down.

Don't. Your case seems to have been managed well although it is a pity that you got so close to OHSS.

Regards,

Peter
