Embryo Donation

Does RPMG offer embryo donation to their patients? After many failed attempts to make chromosomally normal embryos, my husband and I are in the early stages of discussing our adoption options. Curious if this is something your clinics offer? Thanks in advance!

Clomid Days 3-7 vs 5-9

I am curious why some Drs prescribe Clomid on days 3-7 and others prescribe it on days 5-9. Is there a benefit in egg quality or quantity in one or the other? Thanks in advance.

Re: Poor fertilization with ICSI

Thank you for your response Dr. I will be sure to follow up with the information you provided me with. According to the embryology report 7 out of 8 eggs were mature. I am now 38 whereas my last IVF, I was 37 with 100% fertilization of 10 eggs using ICSI. Is it likely that egg quality has declined s...

Poor fertilization with ICSI

What would be a cause of poor fertilization with ICSI especially when ICSI has been used on the same partners eggs in the past with 100% fertilization? ICSI was used due to poor morphology but shouldn't ICSI solve that problem? Is it always strictly an egg quality issue?
Thanks in advance.

Progesterone supplementation after FET

I am just curious if there is a definitive answer as to how long PIO injections are needed after a successful FET? There is so much variation out there from "it doesn't effect pregnancy outcomes at all" to continuing through the entire first trimester. Is there a standard number of weeks progesteron...

Hi Dr. Wisot, My husband and I are about to start an IVF cycle. This will be our first cycle using PGD. I went through IVF in 2012 and was able to conceive our daughter on the first try. However of the 5 blastocysts we were able to freeze, none of those resulted in a pregnancy beyond 10 weeks (1 mis...

Clomid during IVF protocol

Can you explain why clomid would be added to an IVF protocol? My next IVF protocol will include estrogen and testosterone priming along with menopur, clomid and saizen. I had a successful IVF/ICSI pregnancy 3 years ago with a similar protocol but with follistim instead of the clomid. I am 36 years o...

Day 3 vs Day 5 transfer

Hi Dr., Can you explain the difference between a day 3 and a day 5 transfer? I was under the impression that a day 5 transfer yields better results. However, my clinic seems to do many day 2 and day 3 transfers. What is the deciding factor between which day a patient's transfer happens? Thank you in...

Spotting during IVF stims

I started taking follistim and menopur on day 5 of my cycle for IVF. I have been on stimulation meds for 4 days and am still experiencing some light brown discharge like I usually get at the end of my period as well as some minor cramping. I will go in for my first e2 and ultrasound on day 6 of stim...
