I am 32 years old. I had first IVF cycle in nov last year which failed.
Second in may this year. Which again failed
I have a medical hostory due to which I only have one overy.
The number of eggs extracted are 3-4 max.
And transfer first time was 4 and second time 3, all grade A

I have been trying to read up on the care to be taken during and after embryo transfer and havent found anything on the net on this topic

I hear from other patients in the clinic different opinions on keeping the leg up immediately after transfer, not passing urnine atleast for 4 hrs after ultra sound guided transfer and bed rest for atlest a week.

I havent done any of the above and would want some expert opinion on these points.

I would like to do things right this time around

Hello,
Welcome to ehealthforum.
The suggestions as mentioned by you do help in giving you a positive result. Discuss with your infertility specialist/gynecologist about getting you started on Clomid or progesterone supplements post embryo transfer to help you continue the pregnancy safely.
All the best.

I experienced 1 failed ivf cycle with own eggs 2 years ago.I know that's hard. My ER results - 4 follies & one egg only!! ET - 1 nice embie but it failed to make home inside unfortunately. Our dr told us my eggs were not going to work with the next round. So we went straight to egg donation. Put all my hopes into the procedure!

There definitely are the requirements to meet to apply for surrogacy. 1. A woman had a hysterectomy which removed her uterus. 2. She suffers some life threatening disease. 3. She has genetic disease.4. She's been through at least 5 failed ivf rounds. In any case, a woman must have dr's certificate where it's said she cannot carry pregnancy herself. Then one should be aware of surrogacy law in the chosen country. Some allow it commercial, others altruistic only. Some countries allow it for married heterosexual couples only, others --for homosexual and single. In most of the countries where surrogacy is not banned, the surro is considered to be the legal mother of the baby. One should keep in mind the cases when the surros changed their mind and wanted to keep the baby after delivery. Or that fact that in the US for ex., you'll have to go to the court and adopt your baby..and there's plenty of other things to be aware of when considering this option. Moreover, it's not the cheapest option. and may be longer procedure than expected..That's why I wouldn't push the former poster to surrogacy. I truly hope there's still hope with ivf cycles.

The current figures show that over the last couple of years the number of IVF cycles where fresh own eggs/ donated eggs are used is up by more than 50%. Among women over 45, more now use donated eggs than their own when using medical assistance to get pregnant. What’s happening at the moment is that more and more women are delaying motherhood until later in their lives. But the fact is that as you get older the quality of your eggs diminishes. Using donated eggs from a younger woman pushes the success rate right up for older women. It can be the difference between 3 or 4% using their own eggs, right up to as high as a 60% success rate using donated eggs. The thing is that the womb doesn’t age in the way eggs do. So a woman can carry a child at almost any age. I have also appreciated what egg donors/surrogates are doing for us. Seems they allow themselves the pleasure of feeling good about having made such an extraordinary difference to the lives of strangers... I know a woman who've shared her eggs once. She told when she was at the clinic in the waiting room and saw couples there waiting for their appointment, and could see how hard it all was for them. At the end of the day, the bit she did was the easy part..
