Hi all

Started our first IVF this year and went for e/c yesterday, everything went really well, had 7 follies and 5 eggs, 4 matured, husbands  ^sperm^ normal and OK, thought everything would work for us.

Unfortunately it didn't, we got a call early this morning to say that the eggs didn't fertilize, not sure why, said that it could have been hard for the sperm to get through or the eggs just too hard and wouldn't accept.

We have been advised that ICSI is our next attempt which i don't really know anything about and not heard much about it.

I don't think i have ever felt so empty and in shock in my life, all the stress, hard work, money and wishful thinking, its been wiped out in one day, i still cant believe it and keep thinking that i am going in for e/t tomorrow which just isn't going to happen.  The hospital have given us less than 50% chance of them fertilising over night as they are hoping to leave them tonight so will get a call in the morning but really not holding out much hope  :'( :'(.

Dear Kelly
So sorry to hear your news but don't give up - some may fertilise overnight (fingers crossed for you).  If not, I know it's hard but try to focus on how far you did manage to get this time - ie that the drugs worked, you produced eggs and that DH's contribution was OK - because these were all hurdles that you had to cross and you managed all of them successfully.  If things don't get further this time, the fact that the clinic has suggested ICSI means that you have another route to try.  (I've also read of people having eggs fertilising and not fertilising on successive IVF cycles, so if IVF doesn't work this time it doesn't necessarily mean it wouldn't work next time).  I haven't had ICSI but I understand that most of the treatment cycle is very similar to IVF - maybe if you look on the ICSI board on this site you can get further info.  Also try to get as much feedback and info as possible from your consultant.  Anyway, fingers crossed for good news tomorrow, and, if not, try to focus on the fact that this is not the end of the line.

Thank you all for your support.

Am in a better mood now and more positive as we saw the consultant last week and he said ICSI would work for us, obviously there are no guarantees but everything was fine with both eggs and sperm, we were just unlucky 1 in 300,000 whose sperm rejects eggs!!

Just got to wait about 6 weeks then we can start and i will be on a short protocol which is even better.

Good luck to you all  ^fairydust^

Hi Lisa

So what went wrong with your cycle, sorry thats if you dont mind me asking x

Nothing was said about a pill, just got to take menopur a higher does to get more follies this time and thats it, the normal procedure from then on.  Was surprised that i didnt need to down reg this time which is a result as i suffered with that quite bad last time.

Take care and speak soon xxxx

Hi Lisa

I am so sorry you must think, what a rude cow.  You dont have to explain to me, as i know and should have remembered what was wrong, it sounded like i weren't interested, far from the truth.

Am sorry and speak soon

xxxx
