    Thank you, i retrieved 6 eggs, I was hoping a few more had grown but no I cried as soon as I saw 6 on my hand and lasted for about 4 hours! I'm a person who never cries and certainly never in front of other people but I couldn't stop! Was told today 4 fertilised but really worried I won't have anything to transfer!

    Sorry you feel upset at the result, I know its not the high number we all come to hope for. I was exactly the same when I heard my results too. Are you transferring day 3 or day 5?
    Big hugs

    You should have something to transfer! I had 2 fertilised, and both of mine were transferred! We are a similar age, so you would assume similar quality of eggs. I hope it all works out. Let us know how it goes in the next few days!

    Sorry to hear your upset with the numbers but hold hope. I have done 2 cycles, both times I got 11 eggs but first cycle only 1 fertilized and 2nd cycle only 2 fertilized and I'm now 12 weeks pregnant so, you have 1 more than what I had!! Keeping everything crossed for you. Remember it's the quality not quantity x

    Thank you so much! I really appreciate it. I'm so nervous I feel sick just thinking about it! It's going to be a long 5 days waiting to see if any have made it.

    Hi Mermaid....6 is very good .

    I had 11 my first cycle and only 3 eggs day of transfer. 1 transferred and got pregnant.

    Second cycle only 5 and only 2 eggs again..and transfer was successful.

    Usually less eggs better quality. ..I would go with it and definitely not cancel.

    Default :(

    I had retrieval on Monday and got 7 eggs, 5 fertilised normally however they were delayed in growth at day 5. Ours not only had this but also fragmentation and we ended up transferring the best one but it still wasn't at blasto stage.
    Even the staff at repromed have been shocked as we both don't have any known issues and I'm 29. So devastated.

    @Lillybugg1 awww I'm sorry! Yeah I was so upset when they only got 6! I have a high egg reserve and I'm 31 so why did I only get 6?? 4 of mine fertilised 2 made it to day 5 2 were given an extra day but weren't suitable. I had 1 transferred and BFN 😥 I have the next one transferred in may. I have no known issues and we were using donor so now I'm just so worried about the whole thing. 5 of your 7 fertilised so that's really good! So many people get BFP from embryos with fragmentation so try not to worry too much. Did they manage to freeze any?

    😭😭 we couldn't freeze any as they didn't make it to 12 cells or blast stage

    The one I have transferred anyway they didn't seem hopeful either- it's fragmented with 9 cells
