I wanted to get other people’s experiences with IVF.
My wife is 32, and were going through IVF. thy retrieved 13 eggs, 10 were mature, 8 fertilized. We went through blastocyst and were told that out of the 8, only 2 survived. The other 6 were going I be discarded. The 2 are going to be frozen and transferred back in next month. She asked if it was normal that only 2 survived and was told that her age is a big factor.
We’re both just very shocked at the numbers compared to the percentages that we’ve read online. We read its usually 60-70% are mature, 60-70% fertilize, 60-70% survive the blastocyst for freezing.
What have you guys experienced? Right now we’re worried, we know it takes just one but we’re worried about them surviving the thawing process? Does anyone have experience with that and the survival rate during the thawing process?
