Dear Dr Jacobs,
Just realized that Dr Smith is no longer here. Can you please answer this? I am 36, with 2 IUI's all failed. Fresh IVF cycle in Jan 07 but ended up with etopic in right tube. Had 17 frozen embryos. We tried 2nd IVF in April (short protocol) using FET with Lupron, and progesterone. No HCG. Using Day3 Embros transfer (3 embryos all 6 cells Grade 1,1, and 3). 2 weeks later (now), my HCG is only 1.5 - another fail attempt. How soon can I start a new FET cycle? is the success rate is really much lower? should I start a fresh cycle? We are moving in 2 months and don't know what is best for us.
Thanks.

Success rates with FET will vary from 1 program to another. The success may be a bit lower with FET, because most programs try to pick the best embryos to transfer fresh, and freeze the remaining embryos which look good. As far as when to try again, that is a decision to be made by your RE.
Good luck.
