Prednisone for implantation

Dear Dr Wisot I wanted to ask when you use prednisone for implantation? If at all? I have ANA 1:160 while on baby aspirin. Would this be an indication for prednisone? I read there is risk of cleft lip and cleft pallet but the chance is about 1:700 normally, but with prednisone during 1st trimester i...

Am I over the limit of ivf cycles and now at risk?

Hi Dr Wisot, I have now done 10 cycles and am looking to do another. My early cycles were not producing eggs and embryos of very good quality, using high dose stims due to my diminished reserve, but in my most recent cycles on lower doses I have been getting good looking eggs, good grade embryos and...

Amplification issue PGS

Dear Dr Wisot Our chromosome PGS results from a 3AA grade blastocyst biopsy came back from the lab saying the result was unclear. The PGD result came through ok from the same biopsy. Is it common to get unclear results that have to be retested from a decent looking blastocyst? And on retest is it co...

Multiple ivf cycles with HGH growth hormone

Dear Dr Wisot You mentioned you sometimes use growth hormone HGH with patients. I wanted to ask if these patients use it for multiple cycles? I have had some success with it in one cycle so far but want to bank blastocysts for PGD purposes and am concerned about using it multiple times. Regards Go F...

Growth rate of follicles

Dear Dr Wisot I am a 3 days from trigger and I want to slow down the growth of my follicles because I have found better results when they do not get too big. My clinic does not collect every day so what can I do? Would decreasing FSH dose slow them down? I am currently on 200IU FSH. Or increased cet...

How to stop bleeding

Dear Dr Wisot I am needing to delay my period for a few more days to start my cycle but have started light bleeding. I have been on a progesterone pessary - 500mg per day. Can I just take an extra pessary per day to stop the bleeding? I've been avoiding Progestins (Provera). Or would Provera be the ...

Re: Cancelled cycle

Dear Dr Wisot Does Provera and high Estrogen before a cycle (luteal) impact egg quality? I cancelled a cycle for no response, and now on day two I have a 1.6cm follicle, which must have somehow grown whilst I was on the Provera and (and my e2 went up to 5000 that week). Would the egg in this follicl...

Re: HGH Human Growth Hormone for better egg quality

Dear Dr Wisot We notice that in one of your responses about Growth Hormone you mention that your clinic use it during the last few days of stimulation. We are also aware that some clinics use it for the whole two weeks of stimulation and others even start a week or two before stimulation. We would l...

Re: Cancelled cycle

Dear Dr Wisot Thank you for your response. You suggest the Provera doesn't suppress so perhaps it was the high estrogen. Whatever the cause I was very suppressed and had no follicles respond. When someone has no response, do the typically bounce back ok the next cycle (immediately after the suppress...

Cancelled cycle

Dear Dr Wisot I just cancelled my cycle after no response at all after 10 days of Stims. Leading into the cycle I did 21 days Provera and 7 days of 5mg E2 pessaries. You may recall from an earlier post that my estrogen skyrocketed up to 4800 a few days before I started. I originally thought this hig...
