Dear Peter
Having 1st IVF cycle, had e/c yest-16 eggs, however only 4 fertilised. Very disappointed, going for e/t tomorrow, but worried will be poor grades due to poor fert rate. Does this necessarily follow?
Also what are reasons for poor fert %, I'm 42 could age be a factor ?
Thanks Dollyzx x :-[

HI Dolly

Sorry I can't help with any of your questions but thought I would drop you a quick line to say - keep your chin up! As you know it only takes one for it to work and you have four at the moment! Don't let it get you down - stay positive if you can ^reiki^. I am currently on the 2ww board so look forward to seeing you there in the next couple of days.

Take Care

Michelle

Went for e/t yest, 3 of the embies grade 2, 4 cells, so transferred.
Consultant felt eggs may have receptor problem, which would explain infertility probs. May need ICSI on future cycle

Bot alawys, you need to wait and see

Also what are reasons for poor fert %,

can be either a sperm or egg problem, I would need more information to comment any further

I'm 42 could age be a factor ?

Yes, although I have seen plenty of pregnancies at this age

Good luck!

Peter
