Two questions about CNYAugust 16 2011 at 4:46 PM

1. Do you have to have a hysterocopy?
2. I have read that the FET rate is in the range of 20%. Is this really true? Or are these old rates from when they did not vitrify?
My appt. with Dr. Kiltz is not until late Sept. and just trying to get a head-start.

If you have never had a hysterscopy you should or at least a salinsonogram and yes one or the other is needed. When I went to CNY I was after a fresh transfer for a good price cause their FET rates are low, but do know of two gals on here who were successful with FETs at CNY.

for the information about CNY. I appreciate it.
Dr. K did ask me to do hysteroscopy after first cycle failed
|August 16 2011, 8:45 PM |
Current FET is 15%. That's vitrified. They say they freeze everything, but I'm not so sure, b/c when you look at the cycle stats, you see very, very few embies being frozen from cycles. I'd say if you go there, don't bank on FET success. I'm about to try one, but I just can't afford another fresh cycle.
Thanks for your help...anyone else have experience with FET at CNY?

FET success at CNY
|August 17 2011, 7:28 PM |
Our fresh cycle resulted in a chemical. I was not optimistic about an FET because of their stats but we transferred 3 blasts which resulted in a singleton pregnancy and our beautiful 2yr old dd.
I am not sure about the PP's comment about not having many embryo's to freeze after a cycle, perhaps that is because they do a lot of split cycles...... We did not do a split cycle, and still have 9 frozen after our FET.
We had a great experience w/ Dr. K and the staff at CNY and highly recommend them.
that's true, I only looked at splits
|August 17 2011, 8:01 PM |
They do not stim the split donors hard, and that could make a difference in how many embryos are available to freeze. I can't afford single cycles, and even so, with only 15% FET success, I wouldn't invest money and time hoping for FET. Now, there are other clinics where you get 50-60% fresh success and 50% FET success. One of the clinics in SLC, or maybe it's Sandy, Utah, is not terribly expensive and has very good %.

Thanks Emma...Few more ? about CNY if you have the time.

Thanks. This information is so helpful. We would be fully on board with CNY however stats for FET are not great. What made you decide to use them? Did you do any of the guarantee programs? We are leaning toward the 2 cycle guarantee.
Were you an out of town patient?

I was an out of town patient and CNY works very well with out of town patients. Initially, we looked at clinics closer to home but cycles were 25K+, we were paying out of pocket and could not find a donor with the characterictics we were looking for that was able to cycle immediately. Once we looked at CNY and found a donor that was available immediately, we decided that if the fresh cycle and FETs failed, we would still be able to afford another cycle, where we would be done if we failed at a more expensive local clinic.
It was very important to me to have a younger proven donor, with a history of a good response to stims. I don't know if that really is important, but i felt like it might increase our chances of success.
We did not do a guarantee program. I am not sure how it is at CNY now, but when we cycled, the FETs were included in the fresh cycle fee for the first year.
Hope this helps and i would be happy to answer any more questions.
Best of luck!
