    Good luck

    Thanks Poppy. Unfortunately I don't have a cycle, and I never make any eggs - that's the problem. I can make 1 with the FSH injections, but I'm guessing they would need to do a 'bigger' stimulation to get more eggs, as my FS said there is a big drop-off between how many they get and how many are any good to use. Thank you, though!

    Thank you for sharing your experiences.

    Nicole - what you said about being consumed by worrying resonates with me. I think I do the same - overanalyse and agonise over things that may not be!

    Now to find a way to de-stress...

    Girl x - I only ever had 2 frosties, so never had this issue to think of.
    Someone made comment though, that yes, they are embryos, but they are not in an environment conducive to development. They would not survive anyway.
    I personally have no issue with letting the embryo succumb, however my preference would be to donate to research. My husband had ethical issues as well, and struggled to work out what he would do.
    This was definitely a topic of discussion before we started ivf.

    I wouldn't be concerned about embryos, but that is just me.

    What you need to remember is that not all eggs retrieved will be viable. My friend has had 2 children through ivf. First time she had 9 eggs, only 2 viable. One embryo resulted in her daughter, the other was frozen. When she tried ivf for her second child, the leftover embryo didn't implant and she had to do the whole thing again. I can't remember how many eggs were retrieved, bur she now has a son.
