Hi All, we're now in the 2ww for our 5th cycle. Had my egg pick up on Friday and they collected 5 eggs. Today at day 3 only one embie remained and it is not particularly good, 5 cell but compacting. We were lined up to have our transfer on Wed (5 day) but given our results we had our only remaining embie transferred today (day 3). Does anyone know what compacting means? I've taken it as a good sign that it's still growing but it's only 5 cell so not sure what to make of that?
My hubby has a condition and is on some awful medications which say do not conceive children whilst taking this. We had his sperm frozen years ago when he was first diagnosed but unfortunately the sperm is not good quality and quantity is not the best. We had asked to do picsi but apparently there aren't enough sperm to do that.
I was on a lower dose of meds this cycle in attempt to get less but good quality embies. .. Big fail :-( (162.5 gonal f, orgalutran and 1 ovidrel trigger, Pregnyl every three days following egg pickup)
Any suggestions on what we could try next? This is our 3rd full stim cycle and we've also had a canceled fet (embies didn't survive the thaw) and one unsuccessful fet. We never get more than 1 or 2 embies from each cycle. Oddly enough however we do have a beautiful 4 year old dd from our very first cycle ever but unfortunately haven't been able to repeat our success of that cycle.
Thank you to you all for reading and very best wishes to everyone who is jabbing, waiting or have had some good or not so good news xx
