What questions to ask/MC mentioned

  1. We are next in line for a clinic donor who just had her first donation. Couple got pregnant but sadly miscarried.

    The RE reviewed the record and approved the donor to cycle again. clearly the conclusion is that it is something on the IPs end vs the donor.

    The information was relayed to me via the IVF nurse. I do want to follow up with the RE -just not sure what to ask which will help us make our decision as to whether or not to move forward with this donor.


  2. Bella-Coming from an IP who m/c on fresh DE cycle, I would ask how your donor's cycle went:

    how many eggs retrieved, how many mature, how did they stimulate her, how many eggs fertilized, ICSI or not, how many embryos became blasts, how many blasts did they freeze, what were the qualities of all of the embryos, etc. That will give you an idea of how your donor did.

    Our donor did great, and there was nothing wrong on our end either- sometimes embryos that appear to be "normal" are not and cause an unforseen m/c.

    Good luck!

  3. I agree with mariofreitas, seeing a m/c is not the whole story. It could be something on the recipient's end or it could have been bad embies. I would want to know how many eggs, how many mature and how many frozen embies they had. I had an early loss on my fresh cycle, but we had 11 frozen blasts and had a beautiful girl from the first FET. So I consider our cycle a complete success. But if there were only a few embies, with a m/c and no frozens, I would consider that a failed cycle and might look elsewhere.

  4. Hi!

    I'm in the process of m/cing from a DE/DS fresh transfer and I would ask detailed questions too. My baby had chromsomal errors, determine from the sac size, slow development and early death.

    Chromosome errors can happen at any age, so it is a risk with any cycle---though fortunately, does not happen often. which is no comfort to those of us it does.

    Good luck with your decision. Reviewing all the facts, then going with your gut is the best any of us can do.
