IVF Journey x Blastocyst Accumulation

Accumulating Oocytes or Blastocysts for Low Responders? Age as a Criterion.
Several studies have shown maternal age as a determining factor in IVF treatment. 

Most of our patient are suffered from diminished ovarian reserve and/or advanced maternal age. For women over 38-year-old, with declined ovarian reserve, accumulating blastocysts is the strategy we use. Both the quality and quantity of oocytes are adversely affected by the age. They may experience repeated IVF failure caused by few or no embryos to transfer. In this cohort, accumulating blastocysts could be used to increase the chance of pregnancy.  

What is oocytes accumulation? What is blastocysts accumulation?

Oocytes accumulation aimed at collecting oocytes, and freeze it. After we had collected enough oocytes, we thaw all oocytes and fertilize and culture them in one batch. 

Blastocysts accumulation aimed at creating blastocysts and freeze it. After each oocyte retrieval surgery, we fertilize the eggs and culture till day 5~6 then freeze it. 

The clinical outcomes of different age using different treatment shown. 

The result indicated that in using oocytes accumulation, the pregnancy rate of the patient over 38 y/o is 2-3 times less than the patient below 38 y/o.
But the pregnancy rate of oocytes or blastocyst accumulation did not show a significant difference.

To conclude, for age under 38y/o, the pregnancy rate can be reached around 50~70% regardless of what treatment is used; however, forage over 38y/o, the pregnancy rate will be double using blastocyst instead of oocyte 
the pregnancy rate of age over 38y/o is nearly double that of the ovulation pregnancy rate.

How many blastocysts should I collect?

Without pre-implantation genetic screening(PGS), the basis for embryo implantation can only be judged by the developmental speed and appearance level.
Therefore, the pregnancy rate and live birth rate vary with age.
The estimated fee for both treatments is as follow.

To increase the pregnancy rate and live birth rate furthermore,  we introduce you the Third generation IVF Plus( PGS + ERA) . For further require, please contact us

[Patient Testimonial] Escape from Death Penalty, Born Again with Oocyte Donation

Finally, it's my turn to write my appreciation letter to Stork Fertility Center. My husband and I have been married for 8 years. We tried many ways to have a child for 7 years. It’s not easy for us to pray for our own child. it’s a long journey.

In the beginning, whoever introduced the doctors to me, I would go if they could help me to get the baby. But the Chinese medicine doctor always told me that my body was too cold to be pregnant. The treatment I got was herbal medicine and acupuncture…etc. However, it did not help me become healthier. My endometrial growths got bigger over time instead. Therefore, I did the three-times of Laparoscopic Surgery. After that my AMH level dropped to 0.16, which means I don't have many eggs in my ovary. Even so, I would never give up. I have a wonderful husband and I love him so much. I want to give him a baby. I will keep trying till last minute.

During the treatment, I have been pregnant four times, but none of them have been grown up. I was so sad and disappointed with myself. I started asking why I could not keep my baby. I did everything I could do and what did I do wrong. I did all the medical inspection, but no one could tell me why I couldn’t get pregnant. I even went to see the doctor of immune dysfunction. The doctor told me the report showed all data looked good. But the devil is still hidden in the details.

All the doctors couldn’t find my problem of infertility. I felt like I have been pronounced with death penalty. I really don't want to give up. Fortunately, I saw the commercials of Stork Fertility Center. It rekindled my hope. I would like to give myself another chance. I told myself if it failed again, at least I tried. Since then I started another journey for having baby.

My Attending Doctor of Stork Fertility Center is Dr. Lai. Because I have already (lost) many times in IVF treatment, and I lost my confidence. But Dr. Lai is so confident and gave me a lot of positive vibes. He told me what he wanted was "success rate". Dr. Lai is a very good doctor. I could feel his attentive and aggressive heart when he did inquiry. It was so touching, so I cried in the clinic room. I only did one IVF treatment in Stork, and I have pregnant. Moreover, doctor help me to transfer to another hospital, for checking my immune dysfunction. In order to ensure I won't lose my baby again.
Ten months pregnant period, I am finally holding my baby. Thanks Dr. Lai gave me a healthy child and made me dream come true.  By Looking at my baby, it reminds me the session of Crescent Moon- The Beginningfrom Rabindranath Tagore...

Your tender softness bloomed in my youthful limbs, like a glow in the sky before the sunrise. 
Heaven's first darling, twin-born with the morning light, you have floated down the stream of the world's life, and at last you have stranded on my heart. 
As I gaze on your face, mystery overwhelms me; you who belong to all have become mine. 
For fear of losing you I hold you tight to my breast. What magic has snared the world's treasure in these slender arms of mine?" 
Rabindranath Tagore
Crescent Moon- The Beginning

Thanks Doctor Lai, thanks Stork Fertility Center, and thanks all the miracle.
