As I mentioned in my previous post, 22 eggs were recovered from my egg donor. Of those 22, 18 were mature and fertilized. The embryo transfer took place this past Monday. I received the treatment summary and it looks like everyting went well. The summary says that there was easy access, no complications, and the transfer procedure was generally described as easy. It also says that 4 Grade I embryos (8 cells each) were transferred to my surrogate. One one of them, it looks like it says "Grade I.5" I'm not sure what that means (perhaps halfway to a grade II) but i'm hoping that it is good. From looking at the treatment summary, it looks like everything went well and I am keeping my fingers crossed that one of them attach and grow! Welcome to the 2WW. I hope these next two weeks fly by. I should know something on 12/24/12 - maybe i'll have an early Christmas present.

  4. To be completely honest with you, IVF success rates aren't good. Although I can tell you that we did fall pregnant in our first cycle, this isn't the case for the majority of couples. The older you are, the less likely it is that you will conceive. With regard to women under thirty five the average rate of success is just under 30%. This goes straight down from there to just under one percent for women over 44 years of age. These are harsh statistics. Effectively, what this means is that more than sixty-six per cent of you will not be successful and in the scenario in which you don't have any more embryos you will be requested to withstand the expense and stress of another hormone injection cycle.

  5. I agree with you, but I'm curious: The most common objection I hear from people I know who are pro-life is that an impotent couple who wants a child can get the embryo implanted in herself. I maintain that it's wrong, but the recourse I fall back into is natural law theory when asked to explain (which is perfectly fine, but in my experience not that convincing). So are there any more concrete reasons to explain why that's wrong? Here i suggest peoples to go INDIA for IVF surrogacy, then you must search for Surrogacy India, Surrogate mother India, IVF India, IVF clinic India & IVF cost india. I found Go Surrogacy for this treatment in India. Hope you also like these.
