    Default Anyone got any success stories with hard shelled, immature eggs & ICSI?

    Hi there,

    I am a 32 year old who has been TTC for 4 years. Our first IVF cycle revealed that my eggs had a hard zona pellucida or shell, which meant that the sperm werent getting past the shell. It also seemed that the sperm weren't interested as there were only a couple of them 'having a crack' at each egg.

    There was also some fragmentation of the eggs.

    All of the problems i have mentioned apparently could have been cos of immature eggs. The embryologist really wasnt sure.

    We did manage to get 1 egg fertilised, which was transferred and gave us a chemical pregnancy (very early miscarriage.)

    We are going to be doing 100% ICSI next time.

    Has anyone out there got any success stories with hard shelled / immature / fragmented eggs & ICSI?

    Hi Winzy, sorry I've got no help for your question. I just thought I could get you bumped to the front page by replying so more people will see your question. Good luck!
