So in my spare time I've been researching (as always!) and I've run accross some interesting stuff about improved live birth rates with frozen versus fresh embryo transfer.
When we last talked to our RE, he said something that has stuck in my head. He said that in fresh cycles, he has no control of the "environment" that he transfers the eggs into. In frozen OE transfers or fresh DE transfers, our bodies essentially become like a surrogate's. So the RE can prepare our hormone levels and our lining as much as neccesary to create the ideal environment.
So then I also got to thinking about what sort of impact all of the stim meds might have on implantation and m/c. I mean, when I was stimming, my kidneys hurt every night and my body was pretty out of whack until after I'd been off of the meds for a while. Is that really the best environment for an embryo?
Well, anywho...I found several interesting studies, but these are the ones that is really making me think:
Now, of course, there are also studies showing that fresh is better than frozen. But for women who have had numerous m/c's or have a difficult time implanting, I wonder if going with frozen ET could be an option?
