4th embryo transfer, high blood pressure and overweight

  1. Hello,

    I’m about to go for my #4 embryo transfer but recently I took a test and the result showed high blood pressure… in addition I’m overweight (plus-sized) at 216 lbs, height 5 ft… I’m 41 yrs old, can’t wait to have my baby. How risky is it for me now to go for another FET? fyi I’m using donor eggs – used own eggs before but no implantation happened. #3 attempt resulted in a chemical pregnancy… and I’m devastated, want to have a baby asap. Can you help me take the next step? I already have 2 daughters (12 and 13 years old). I have my tubes tied – done 6 years ago.

    Hello expecting90,

    IVF patients are advised to monitor their blood pressure before the embryo transfer. It helps preventing further complications, and increases the chances of pregnancy.

    Overweight should be controlled as well, not only because it increases a woman’s chances to get pregnant, but her overall state of health.

    Wishing you all the best!
