Fert results are in 19 retrieved, 16 mature, icsi due to pgd planning >> 9 fertilised normally, 2 fert abnormally, 5 didn't fertilise.
Large numbers do seem to be a double edged sword. It's a balancing act between numbers and quality, and of course threat of ohss. You can get much more attrition ... So I've ended up with an ordinary number of day 1 embies for me which is roughly 8 or 9 . Because we are doing aCGH this cycle is largely experimental/diagnostic so I'm being ruthless with them in the lab so the scientists have as much info as possible so we can plan the next cycle, therefore I am not getting too attached to this batch. It's also my first ever cycle with new fs.... First pancake doesn't always work out at least not for me anyway.....

Hi ladies hoping to join you thread please. I have been reading through previous posts and am surprised at some of the egg numbers some of you are getting. Im very new to this whole IVF thing and my expectations weren't that high - gives hope
a little about me, hubby and i are 29 and have a 3year old daughter conceived naturally, born via csect in 2011. Been trying to conceive number 2 for over 18months now. had a laparoscopy in april this year and was told both my tubes are blocked due to adhesions from my csect and would need ivf - very shocked.
We have met with FS and am just waiting on AF (due next week) so we can start our 1st cycle. doing a long down regulation cycle so all going to plan will have to start nasal spray mid august.
I'm sure being such a newbie to all of this i will have lots of questions for you all along the way.
wishing you all the best of luck with your cycles

@MrsChino I'm sorry to hear you don't have many follies. I too had a very large endometrioma on my left ovary, leaving it pretty much ruined - they couldn't find the ovary because of the destruction. So I do really understand your disappointment and heartbreak - you start thinking 'what next?' Just try to stay positive - have your cry and be kind to yourself, and focus on doing what you can to make the most out of the cycle.
Welcome @Bluemeeple - 22 is great and even 6 fertilized is a good result. Fingers crossed they continue to grow into strong little embies.
Congrats @Butterfly39 - 9 fertilized is still great!
Welcome @sherbet1230 - I hope your ivf journey is a short one.
AFM - egg pickup done, got 14 eggs from my lonely right ovary - super happy with that result as I was very anxious I'd get nothing and that'd be it for me since I only have the one. Very sore and crampy but otherwise okay. I find out fertilization tmrw and if we go ahead with either a 3 day or 5 day transfer.
2009 - 2010 - diagnosed with severe endo - 2 x laps, 1 x laparotomy to remove endo.
2011 - IVF - 1st cycle - chemical pregnancy, FET - BFN, 2nd FET - BFN
2013 - another laparotomy - lost right ovary and tube to a 15cm endometrioma
2014 - beginning IVF again...

Golly - that must have been a shock about your tubes. I didn't know that could happen as a result of a C-section. Hopefully you'll have a good result with IVF though (which I think was invented to assist conception where there are tube issues) and you'll get it first go

I am a long term ivf girl. Back here for round 8 - lucky number 8.
I am a poor responder (AMH is great for my age though) for the first 6 cycles 3 eggs each time, changed FS to Wazza he jacked up the meds DHEA, Melatonin, all the supplements under the sun, Human Growth hormone and got a whooping 17 eggs. 7 fertilied but by day5/6 nothing to transfer we have a sperm issue. DH is on Arimidex to try to assist the quality and quantity. Picking up meds on Thursday been on DHEA, Melatonin and all the extra plus Syneral since the 9th July also on Provera and Progynova to boost me as I get really depressed on syneral.
I think this will be the last go. We have to fly to Brisbane for the cycle from Cairns and the cost is close to $13K with all the meds, flights, accommodation and paying for scans here in Cairns. I just not sure how much more we can do mentally after this one.
Going for PICSI if the sperm is good enough last time after TESA it wasn't. We will head down a few days before and bank a sample to avoid TESA again and go for fresh on the day.
Will keep you all updated as I progress. good luck to everyone will read back over the thread.
