Question from IF & TTC>35 board

Hi All,

I'm a regular on TTC>35 and the Infertility boards and need some help.

I'm doing IVF#1 and just got my fert report.  Of 9 eggs retrieved, 8 were mature but only 2 fertilized.  I'm totally devastated right now and in shock.  I know "it only takes 1" and I dish that advice out all the time, but I'm feeling very pessimistic right now and need some reinforcement from success stories.

Any of you have only 1-2 fertilized with success?   

Me: 37 DH: 37 TTC since Jan 2012. RE consult and initial testing done in Aug 2012: SA fine, AMH 1.1 & HSG clear - on way to IUI but got BFP on 9/10/2012. m/c 10/3/2012 at 6w5d. BFP next cycle which was a c/p. IUI #1: Clomid 100mg 12/6= BFN. IUI#2 (unmedicated) Jan 2013 = BFN. Hysteroscopy 1/25/13. IUI#3 Clomid 100mg 2/23 = BFN IUI# 4: BFN. IVF #1 April 2013, BFP!  EDD 1/12/14 with Boy!

  • Is it too late to do rescue ICSI? Definitely ask for ICSI next time (hopefully there won't be a next time because this time will work though!)

    I hope your little embabies keep growing!

    I'd ask your RE about a 3-day transfer given the low n

  • it's really quality over quantity.  With my first only 3 fertilized, and i did get pregnant-- but it turned ectopic.   This second one I had only 3 great ones (out of 9 retrieved) and am now 13 weeks pregnant.

  • I mainly lurk and don't post much but my situation was very similar. I Had 9 eggs at retrieval and 8 were mature. We did ICSI on half of my eggs and tried natural fertilization with the rest. None of the eggs fertilized naturally and 3 or the 4 with IC

    For my first IVF, I had 16 eggs retrieved but only 4 fertilized (most weren't mature).  We transferred 2 on day 3 and they both stuck.  DDs are now 4.  Around the same time, there was someone on the board that only had 1 embryo from her IVF
