Hello, my name is katie and I have just turned 27. My husband is 50. We have a 16 month old son who was conceived naturally (and straight after we began trying). My pregnancy was easy, but when I had my c-section they discovered i have a bicornuate uterus.
When our son was 2 weeks old, my husband was diagnosed with terminal cancer. We froze sperm before he began any treatment, and it was apparently 60% live.
We began ICSI about 9 months ago. My first cycle, I had 27 eggs retrieved, 20 were fertilised and i had 8 reaching blastocyst. I am not sure of the grade, but I was told they were excellent.
I had 2 BFNs, then 2 chem pregs. Then I had 2 transferred together and it was another BFN.
I switched doctors and clinics after the last transfer, and I am starting a fresh cycle, leaving the last 2 embies behind.
I don't understand why they keep failing. It is breaking my heart. I am so young, I am seemingly so fertile. I keep reading all these other stories about people who are older than me, with fertility issues, who get pregnant with 3 attempts on average.
What do you think my chances are? My new doctor says my chances are great, but I am not sure. Do you think there is some other reason why it is not working?? I keep thinking that maybe its my husbands sperm.
Your opinion would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you so much.
