The Enemy


Google is not your friend. Google has done quite a bit of research for me and it turns out donor embryo transfer success rates come in around 15-20%. This is a sad stat…that I am not at all comfortable with. I much prefer the optimism of Dr. Sohn who gave us a 50/50…but why?? Is Google being conservative to protect my feelings? I can’t imagine that as half of the info Google provided me was from agencies who MUST want to lure prospective customers with their alarmingly high success rates. Sigh…20%?? I wouldn’t even be comfortable with 70%, never mind 20%.

Anyhoo…its Friday morning and I refuse to let this bring me down. It’s going to work and that’s that. How can it not? They are good quality embryos and my uterus is pink and fluffy. IT’S GOING TO WORK.

Lj-I've heard much better stats than that. Not sure what the source is that you found, but you should check out sart.org. Donor embryos usually have BETTER success rates than other fresh cycles.

Suz - that was really helpful. UCSF's donor FRESH embryo transfers (live births) is 59%...FROZEN is 50% - that's not too shab!!!

of course its going to work - Google can get things wrong - 50% is not too bad you know and I think all professionals probably put a conservative figure on it anyway just to cover themselves. Don't go fretting over Google!
