Age 35 – IVF Conception

This is the cervix of a 35 year old woman who has had 4 previous vaginal births.  She typically has a regular 28 day cycle.  She has had a pap smear with an ‘abnormal cell count’ result and has had non cancerous polyps removed from her cervix in the past.

She is now pregnant with her 5th child, who she conceived using IVF.  These photos are taken the month she conceived with IVF.  She ovulated on day 15 and they transferred an embryo on day 20, and got pregnant!

Day 9

This is four days before ovulation.  You can see some milky fertile fluid at her os.

Day 22

The embryo was transferred two days ago using IVF.

Day 25

Day 29

The embryo has successfully implanted and she is now pregnant!  She did a home pregnancy test on day 26 and got a positive result, which was confirmed by a blood test in the clinic a week later.
