😔 @LillyM I'm so sorry. That happened to me in my previous cycle:16 eggs and none fertilised. It's one of the worst and saddest feelings I've been through so I know how you feel right now. I cried the whole day and when hubby got home from work we cried together. We were devastated.
If you can, take time for yourself. Nothing we say will take away what are you feeling now, but please be sure that we are here if you need us. We are in this together even though we don't even know each other face to face.
FS made me wait a full cycle before making another appt. Your body needs to get rest and recover. But don't wait too long to make the appt, once you get AF call them asap and book one. If you need answers (I'm sure you do) call the scientist. That's what I did.
I'll be thinking of you! Biggest virtual hug ❤️

Thanks everyone for your messages... means a lot.
Was IVF not ICSI. I know nothing about ICSI, can it really improve our chances? @Kookii did you go from IVF to ICSI? Were you doing IVF when none of your 16 eggs made it? (how awful!)
I'll definitely call the scientist, where can I get his contact details though?
I'm gonna follow your advises and give it a break for this month. I'll call as soon as AF show up. Feels like an eternity waiting...
Call Primary and tell the receptionist what happened, and that you want to talk to one of them to know what went wrong. The scientist will call you back the same day (she called me within 3 hours).
In my case, sperm was agglutinated, bad morphology and motility. All that could go wrong went wrong. And, on top of that, some of my eggs weren't mature enough and they collapsed when being injected. That's why FS prescribed Luveris this time for me, an antibiotic for DH (doxycycline), and Bisolvon to help with agglutination.
@LillyM our plan did not involve ICSI. But on the day of EPU, considering I got 2 eggs, and DH got the nerves @ couldnt even cough up 1ml of swimmers (he choked, got 0.8ml), Dr Lukic took action & changed us to ICSI. They inject 1 sperm into the egg. Its IVF/ICSI. As a result we had 1 fertilise out of 2. Next round we are on IVF/ICSI no matter how many eggs we get. Knowing what went wrong will be fixed next round. Thats all I wanted and thats what I have received. I hope you get answers..xx
OH @LillyM. I am so terribly sorry!!
I'm sending you biggest bear . I'm gutted for you ;(
Take the time to cry and emotional and physically heal hun. Don't blame yourself- there are sooo many variables in this ttc business that its easy to blame yourself for producing bad eggs. They could have been fantastic quality eggs but somewhere along the fertilisation line, something isnt right. I agree with Kookii- call the embryologist and ask for details about why they didnt fertilise. Having even the smallest details from how it happened is sometimes enough motivation to put on the boxing gloves and punch the living s**t out of the next cycle.
I know- no words will ever comfort the devastation you're feeling right now. You a strong hun and this will make you stronger and ready for the nxt treatment plan.
I wonder if its too late to do ICSI on those eggs?
I will be in my thoughts today hun :*
Sorry.. I meant--
YOU will be in my thoughts..
I just called Primary reception and she'll have someone to call me back, she did say a nurse will call the scientist then me, do not too sure if I'll get to speak directly with the scientist.
I was wondering as well about the "rescue ICSI"?
When none of the eggs get fertilized, do they try the ICSI as a back up plan? I read that some clinics do that automatically... Nothing to loose after all...
Just hope I can trust them and that they're trying everything possible, even though that ICSI wasn't the initial plan...
I think most clinics will automatically try ICSI if IVF didn't work out.
They will try everything they can to get fertilisation to happen.
I would be disappointed if they didn't try that option if IVF was unsuccessful
Praying that they did do the rescue ICSI and some eggs managed to get fertilised.
