Has Anyone Done A 6DT Fresh/Frozen Cycle


#1

Hello Ladies,

Has anyone done a 6dt with a fresh or frozen transfer?
If you have, what was the verdict… :bfp: or :bfn: ?
And how many baby’s?

The reason why I ask, I will be doing my first 6dt on August 28, 2013 and wanted to get some feedback. Your help is great appreciated!!!

I had a day 5 and day 6 (frozen) transferred Oct 1st last year, and I’m sitting here feeding my b/g twins that were born 10 days ago! Good luck!!

Thank you…

Hopefaithprayer: Thank you!!! This is hope and praying for me. I have only done a 5dt and have taken everytime on the first shot. Now, I get to do a 6dt and I hope both babies take. I will be putting back 2 embabies at 6d.

I had a combination of fresh and frozen together. Day 5 and day 6 transferred on day 6. Chemical.

Hello Again,

Cosmopolitan4112008: I love the feed back… whether bad or good. I just want to make sure my IF’s have a baby or babies!!! Never did a 6 day transfer, just 5 day. They are going to do genetic testing so that is the reason for the 6 day transfer. Thank you.

I have read that if it is a frozen cycle, it doesnt matter whether the embryos are day 5 or 6, but in a fresh cycle your chances are reduced on day 6, since the lining is ‘too old’. Why would your RE be pushing for a day six transfer?


#7

I regretted that we did that transfer on day 6. As far as I remember, lining was good otherwise they would not have transferred, but I think the body was full of estrogen and those stimmulation drugs. I will never do that again. From now on, only fet.however, maybe the lining was not as “fresh” as it is on day 5.


#8

I had a FET of a 5 day and a 6 day blast. I now have a 12 month old DD from that cycle, but we’ll never know which embryo stuck around. Good luck!


#9

hey, I remember you CTW2011!!! I just did a 6dt of a hatched PGD tested embryo!!! everything looked so good that they only wanted to put in one. and as far as the “lining going bad in one day”…i’m not so sure I agree with that…as surrogates we are sometimes “floated” for weeks due to scheduling. I find it hard to believe a lining goes bad in a day.

I had a day 6 transfer on our first ivf cycle (fresh), but I had poor quality embryos past day 3. 11 retrieved, 9 mature, 8 fertilized, but only 2 made it to day 5 (I think it was), and they were not great quality when they transferred. The nurse assured me I wasn’t the only person with a day 6 transfer, so I’m sure it just depends on each individual situation. Good luck!!!

if I could just clarify - in a frozen cycle or with a surrogate, all you need to do is delay the introduction of progesterone until 5 days before transfer. So, yes…people are “floated” for scheduling reasons, but they are still exposed to progesterone (which is used to ‘prime’ or prepare the lining for implantation) 5 days before a blastocyst transfer. There are actual studies that suggest that in a fresh transfer when the lining has been exposed to progesterone for 6 days, there is decreased success. http://www.fertstert.org/article/S0015-0282%2801%2901771-X/abstract

Hello Ladies,

Well, had my transfer last week (August 28, 2013) and had nothing but cramps for the first 2 or so days… took a HPT on a couple of days shy of my 3dp6dt and got a faint :bfp:!!! My IF’s are soooo excited. I have been taking HPT’s each day… so, I am a peeoholic!!! LOL. My HPT’s are getting darker.

I did do a fresh 6dt and they already hatched completely out of their shells before we did the transfer. We put in two boys and I THINK both took!!! I am very happy tooooo!!! I can admit that I was kind of optimistic on a 6dt because I have always done 5dt, but I see they DO work toooo!!!

As far as your “lining going bad”… I think it is you and your body. Seeing I just had a baby for another couple in April 2013, my RE told me I am very FERTILE MERTILE!!! So, it was just a matter of time, but didn’t know what to think… but went with my RE decision. [B][SIZE=14px]HE IS THE BEST IN THE DALLAS/FT.WORTH AREA, HIS NAME IS DR.

congratulations!!

‘the lining going bad’ is never what I said. As a surro, it wouldn’t apply to you. it would only apply to a fresh cycle where the women doing the IVF ER retrieval also did the transfer 6 days later. the lining would not be ‘bad’, but it could potentially be exposed to progesterone for too long, making the embryo less likely to attach.


#14

thank you for the link! that was insightful.


#15

was your transfer fresh or frozen?

Hello Ladies,

Pamelackaes: My transfer was a FRESH transfer this time with this surrogacy.
