    Default Only 2 follicles for EPU. Looking for hope

    I am on day 9 of flare cycle. Scan today showed only 2 follicles for EPU scheduled Wednesday. I'm on aggressive doses of fsh,39yo with low ovarian reserve. and have been given option to cancel. FS also said we may get lucky. We have to travel for ivf so can't do multiple cycles this year. I'm still trying to decide to cancel or go ahead. Any success stories with low follicle counts to give me hope that we could get lucky

    Hi - I only had 2 follicles at pick up and only one egg collected. I am now 9 weeks pregnant with that one egg. I had a day 5 transfer. I have had previous cycles with 8 - 10 eggs collected its no success so it really does take one. I also have low ovarian reserve and am 43. Good luck, with your decision!

    Go for it. You will never regret it. I went for it and no eggs but I don't regret it one bit. It only takes. 1 egg and 1 sperm to make a baby

    Hi,
    I had 10 eggs collected but only two were viable. Both fertilised and grew out to day 5 blast. I was told one was good and the other was dodgy. They put both back in due to multiple failures and I got my bfp! I started with 2 sacs but only one was viable. Don't give up hope!

    My son was from a cycle I was told to cancel as I only had two follicles. We got 2 eggs, only one fertilised and will be 3 years old in a couple of weeks. It really does only take one!
