too bad SG FET success was so low in '09...

Response to NPR story on IVF & Twins Today


I found the eSet article on the SG web site over the weekend.

Another issue to consider, unless I'm missing something?

If you do a shared cycle, you've got fewer frozen embryos. Say you are lucky enough to be successful on your first eSet. Some time later, you'd like a sibling. Your chances of that with SG are very low -- in the low 20s. I've seen other clinics with far higher FET success.

I don't have insurance coverage of any sort, so someone offering me a free FET wouldn't help. Likewise, a free FET with such low probability of success isn't really worth too much.

So while carrying twins is higher risk, I certainly understand why many of us wouldn't fight hard to avoid a 2-embryo transfer.

Did I get that right? Does anyone know if SG had better FET success in '10?
