[quote=mamamelanie]Hey there. I am going through this right now. I had my ER yesterday and had 7 eggs retrieved (there were 10 follies but 3 were empty). 5 were mature and were ICSI’d, and I got a phone call this morning to say that so far none had fertilized. Later in the day when I went in to the clinic they told me that now 1 had fertilized and 2 were looking as if they might. No idea if there is any chance or not at this stage, but I do wish that the doctors/embryologists would communicate with me a bit more. This is our 3rd ICSI cycle, and the last 2 have also had low fert rates (see sig). They have told us absolutely nothing except to say that it is “probably a sperm quality” issue. But we have not been advised so far to go with DS, and I don’t know if they are really sure about the cause or they’re just guessing, basically!
Sorry I can’t give you any comfort right now, but I have read plenty of articles to say there’s no reason why another attempt wouldn’t work. Personally if this cycle doesn’t work out I think I will change ER - not because the present clinic don’t know what they’re doing, but because I feel so left out of the process, getting information from them is like getting blood from a stone!
Good luck to you, I hope you try again soon and that you have a better result.[/quote]
Any word today if the other two are growing? how is the one that fertilized? I know it is so stressful!!! Please keep us posted…we have a Feb thread or post here…lots of :grouphug: &
