Hi, I’m new to the forum and was wondering if anyone has had a successful pregnancy having used less than great looking embryos from donor eggs?
This has been a harrowing journey to say the least.
After a long search we chose a 29 year old egg donor, who from every angle appeared to be very healthy, and according to all tests looked great. We also used donor sperm from a proven 24 year old.
She had 15 resting follicles, retrieved 11, 4 fertilized.
We were shocked, these results were as bad as my 42 year old eggs!
We were moved up to a day three transfer because they were afraid the four would not make it to blastocyst.
We put all four embryos in, RE said that if we were open to twins (which we are) that this was the best choice for a successful pregnancy.
We had one 6 cell w/ no fragmentation, one 7 cell with slight fragmentation, one 7 cell compacted with considerable fragmentation, one 8 cell compacted with moderate fragmentation and the acronym “i”?
I realize that even though the embryos aren’t great looking, and the donor didn’t respond well, that they are 29 year old eggs, and that has to account for something.
Just hoping that there is someone out there that had positive results from not so positive embryos.
Thanks so much,
