I'm super new to The Bump and still figuring out which boards are the right ones to post on, but I think I've finally got it down.
A small intro -
hubby 39 (2 kids prior marriage)
male factor (he just had the fragmention / DNA testing done - results coming)
ttc 3 years
3 failed IUI
heres where I'm hoping for some guidance or any advice. We went through our first round of IVF ICSI in November. I responded well, was on low meds (75 gonal, 75 menopur) triggered on day 10 of meds, retrieved 9 and all 9 were mature.
The next morning we got the devastating call that none of the 9 fertilized. Doctors said they hadn't seen that before and both sperm and eggs looked good so they were confused.
Has anyone been through this? Can this happen again if we try IVF again? Could this have been a clinic fault (human error)?
I could be completely misinformed on egg health, but I'm pretty healthy and don't think that could be the issue--under 30, always been an athlete, workout regularly (though not too much), always regular periods, everything organic, never did drugs, Advil may be the strongest thing I've ever taken, no smoking, no drinking, no coffee, regular visits to acupuncture, taking CoQ10, melatonin, pre natal, probiotics, iron, vitamin D.
Anyone heard of this, or been through this before?
