Beginning of February IVF Success Stories

Posted by NHFC

Some updates on pregnant New Hope patients!

1) 42 y/o just updated us that she just had her CVS test (hover over for definition) and it came back chromosomally normal.  She had 4 failed IVF cycles at other clinics and conceived with New Hope after a frozen embryo transfer.  Congrats on your healthy pregnancy thus far!

2) 41 y/o who conceived from blastocyst frozen embryo transfer just confirmed a healthy baby after a an amniocentesis test.  Premature birth may still be an issue, as she as diagnosed with a short cervix.  We're rooting for a healthy full-term delivery!

3) 40 y/o with a history of miscarriages got pregnant from blastocyst frozen embryo transfer from Ultra Mini-IVF™(no injections).  Her healthy baby boy was delivered full-term with no complications.  Congrats to you and your new family!

Frozen Embryo Babies May Be Healthier

Posted by NHFC

Recent research set forth at the British Fertility Society last week suggests babies born from frozen embryo transfers (FET) may be healthier than those born from fresh embryo transfers during IVF treatments.

According the the study, conducted by the Centre for Reproductive and Genetic Health in London, babies born from frozen embryo transfers weighed an average of half a pound more than those babies born from fresh embryo transfers (source: BioNews).  In addition, babies born from fresh embryo transfers were born an average of .65 weeks earlier than those conceived from frozen embryo transfers (source: The Huffington Post UK).

While there remains no clear link to frozen embryo transfers and higher birth weight, Suzanne Cawood, who led the study, suggests the difference may be due to the state of the uterine environment during a frozen embryo transfer, which is less stimulated than that of a woman receiving a fresh embryo transfer.  Fresh embryo transfers are conducted close to the time the eggs are retrieved, which means the embryo is being put into an environment that has been hyperstimulated to produce multiple viable eggs during the IVF process.  Frozen embryos, on the other hand, have been cryopreserved for an amount of time and enter the woman's uterus in a more natural state.

While more research will be needed to understand the major advantages of frozen embryo transfers versus fresh embryo transfers, the application of FET indeed supports the growing trend in single embryo transfers.  In an effort to reduce the complications that arise with multiple pregnancies and premature births, FET offers another way to reduce the risks associated with premature births and lower birth weights, which we at New Hope are all for.  Healthier babies mean happier families.
