Converting to IVF - success rate???
Wed, 05-21-2003 - 5:51pm
Hi Ladies,

I am new to this board. I started my 1st injectible cycle with the anticipation of doing our an IUI this month. After my b/w and two u/s sounds, I have definately overstimulated. My diagnosis is PCOS, so my dh anticipated this would happen.

We talked it over with our RE and they are hopeful that they will be able to retrieve enough follicles and freeze the remainder. They are only going to fertilze two. Whew!!

I am having a third u/s tomorrow and hope to have my trigger shot soon.

I have just one question at the moment (with many more to come, I am sure of it), what sucess rate has "your" RE's given. Mine has given 50 to 55%. Is that high? I guess it also plays into account your age and what your fertility problems are. Just looking for some insight on this.
