    This is such a tough one, most say quality over quantity and the most famous "it only takes one" from other forums between 4 and 10 seems to be a good number.

    I had 8 eggs collected and that was a comfortable number for me - I didn't feel overly bloated or emotional during the stim phase and I recovered very quickly after EPU.

    Only 3 of the eggs were mature enough to use for ICSI, 2 fertilized, 1 implanted successfully after a day 3 transfer but the other didn't make it to blast stage. I'm obviously over the moon that one embryo made it all the way through and ended up as a BFP, but it would have been nice to have a few more eggs so we could have had some snow babies.

    We had 11 collected, about 10 is the average, 7 of those where mature enough to be ICSIed - all 7 fertilised (we were so lucky for this to happen) -- out of the 7, 1 was transferred back, that is my now 8 month DS & 4 where frozen, 3 at day 5 & 1 at day 6, the other 2 didn't make it...; I just made an appointment for March next year to start FET to start TTC for number 2.

    I think it's definitely quality not quantity that you're after, & really only takes 1, any to freeze is a bonus... one of my very close friends had 1 collected & it got all the way thru & is now her 22month old daughter... Every body reacts so differently to the stims so nothing is good or bad, they learn a lot about ur body from each cycle.

    Thanks :-) I had booked for Feb, when DS is 1 but it got moved to March, I reckon by then I'll be clucky as hell, my brothers GF is due in Feb & so is one of my besties... Didn't want to get to then & not be a let an appointment for 3 months!

    In saying all that though, I'm going to get my AMH level check this week & if it's low I'll be changing the appointment to ASAP.

    I am stress because this is the first try and i dont know how my body is going to react and whether there will be any good eggs. I feel like everything have to be right. In the best case scenario which i hope, they find swimmers. This will be the only chance to get the eggs fertilized etc. It is unlikely that there will be any swimmer to freeze, the urologist said. Also this is an one off surgery for DH. It would be ideal to use whatever number of swimmers they find. So many unknowns at this point.

    Apparently, cryopreserve for eggs is no longer in an experimental stage. Many ppl on BH advised to use fresh but FS wanted me to think ahead in worst case scenario and encouraged to do so. Cost is $8k. Anybody has an opinion on this since the lift of the experimental stage? Success story?
