Estradiol levels rising too fast during IVF

Hi, is it true that a mature follicle produces about a level of 200 of E2 and estradiol levels should be doubling about every 48 hours during IVF stimulation? If an E2 level is rising too rapidly during stims does this indicate poor egg quality? My E2 level rose from 1500 on Day 8 of stims to 3900 o...

Changing AMH levels

Hi Dr. Wisot,
My AMH levels have been dropping significantly in the past 1.5 years. When I first had it checked in 2014 it was 8.6. I had it rechecked in mid 2015 and it was 5.7. I had it rechecked a month ago and it was down to 1.8.

Is this meaningful and should I be worried?

Re: Menopur and worsened embryo quality

Hi,
What would be an advantage of using a higher dose of Menopur and lower dose of Follistim?

Menopur and worsened embryo quality

Hi, I read that too much Menopur can cause bad embryo quality due to the LH component. I am planning to start IVF number 2 (first cycle resulted in poor embryo quality), but my RE wants to increase the Menopur dose and decrease the FSH med. Can you tell me the rationale? Also, can you explain the di...

Re: Failed IVF with PGD

Hi, thanks for the reply. My current RE clinic got PGS results on Day 6 post retrieval and was planning to do a fresh transfer of any were normal. I'm curious why your clinic has better success with frozen transfer of PGS tested embryos? Do the PGS results not come back in time for a fresh transfer...

Re: Failed IVF with PGD

Also I wanted to clarify what you said about waiting 2 month to try IVF again. Is the 2 months referring to 2 periods post IVF (i.e. Starting OCP with the 3rd period after IVF)?

Re: Failed IVF with PGD

Hi Dr. Wiscot, A follow up question for you. How long would you recommend I wait to try IVF again after the initial failed IVF 10/2015 with all genetically abnormal embryos? I've read that it takes 2-3 months for men to regenerate new sperm and 3 months for women for new eggs to be recruited, so wou...

Re: Failed IVF with PGD

Hi, Thanks for your response! We used ICSI during the cycle and my clinic said they use ICSI in almost all of their cycles, even in cases without significant male factor. I noticed in your clinic's sart reportings, ICSI is only used in about half of the cases. I understand ICSI increases the chance ...

Re: Failed IVF with PGD

Thanks for your response-your answer is hard to hear but exactly what I was thinking. Would you recommend doing another cycle with PGD, or risk it without since the genetic abnormalities we got may be mosaicisms? Is the genetic abnormalities a reflection of egg and/or sperm quality and what suppleme...
