    Default Any IVF success after losing lots of embryos in the day 1-5 wait?

    I had ER on Monday, they got 17 eggs, 15 of which were mature and "looked good". From these 17, 9 fertilised naturally. I just had my day 3 call, and we are down to two embryos (One 7 cell, grade 1, and one 6 cell not sure what grade).

    If they are still alive tomorrow, they are doing a day 4 transfer.

    I have pcos which is no doubt effecting my embryos each try, I'd like to know has anyone lost lots of embryos after fertilisation in days 1-5, but had success off the 1 or 2 left that were transferred?

    To be honest I've found most embryos are lost between 3-5 days, not 1-3 days.

    How old are you? I'm PCOS too. I would lose a lot of embryos at day 4-5.

    But just remember it only takes 1. Good luck!

    We had some something like 20 fertilise, and ended up with 5 5day embies.

    Since it was our first cycle, our FS wanted to do 50/50 natural / ICSI to hedge (we have no MFI so who knows why). Only 1 ICSI made it to 5 days, the other 4 were natural. It annoys me to think how many more we might have...

    Anyway, of those 5 one is the overtired 7 month old crawling on me.

    Keep faith!

    We always had most of our embryos drop off in first 3 days, in our last cycle, we had 3 out of 17 make it through to day 5, put back one and I'm currently 17 weeks pregnant... So there is hope.

    When many embryo's are retreived it is common for many to drop off. I have found from 3 egg retrievals and friends whom have done ivf that the less amount of embryo's retrieved resulted in the higher success of the remaining making it to day 5. We now have 3 beautiful boys. Good luck

    My friend seriously overstimulated and ended up with 28 day 5 embryos. She used about 6 of them and none took. She thinks it's a dud batch. She later got pregnant naturally.

    My sister had 15 eggs harvested (donor eggs from my other sister), only 1 fertilised. He's now in kinder.

    I got about 14 or 16 and only 2 survived and I had them both put back in which resulted in a twin pregnancy sadly one didn't make it but I have a very active nearly 2 year old now, it does only take one!!

    We got 10 eggs - only 5 fertilised (ICSI) the other 5 that were left to naturally fertilise didn't. Only 2 made it to d5. 1 x fresh transfer resulted in dd2 (3yrs) and 1 x fet resulted in ds1 (1yrs). You only need 1 and the right conditions. Goodluck.
