Chance of miscarriage after IVF

Hi ~ I've had two miscarriages while trying to get pregnant without any help. I'm 39 years old and was 38 when they happened.

We did all the testing and tried a cycle of IUI. Now we're doing IVF because I had a great response to Clomid and came up with 5 fertilized eggs. They transfered two embryos - both were "A" quality - or 8 cells. Does this mean I'll be less likely to miscarry because the embryos were good quality? The miscarriages I had were when we were just trying on our own... they could have been not very good quality embryos. I'm also on progesterone supplements too. Shots in the behind.

Just wondering and thanks for your help. :)

Your risk of miscarriage is not increased with IVF. It is increased because you are 39, not 29. After the age of 35, your risk of miscarriage progressively increases.
Good luck.

O.K. so it's pretty much the same risk as before. Thank you for answering that. Much appreciated. :)
