I am at present in the 2WW - however was very disappointed with embryo quality. Got 15 eggs of which 10 fertlised and 9 continued to divide - out of these 2 were grade 2 and the remaining were grade 3 - all of them had fragmentation, the grade 3 ones had significant fragmantation to the point that the clinic recommended a 3 embryo transfer as the best option (Ionly wanted 2) - My question is how do we improve on these figures. In my last cycle I had 13 eggs, 7 fertlised, 2 5 cell on day 2 and none suitable for freezing. I am 33
Thanks

Dear Asdash,

I am surprised and disappointed (not in you in the clinic) that they put in three against your wishes. This is very poor practice.

On the embryo quality side if I knew the answer I would probably be very rich!! The obvious thing to look at is perhaps a different set of stimulation drugs for you, aneuploidy screening, DNA fragmentation studies for your husband and p[erhaps blastocyst culture. If this cycle turns out to be negative try suggesting some or all of these things.

Regards,

Peter

Dear Peter
Hope you are well?

This is just a quick question - sorry if it appears silly.

I'm having my embryo transfer this afternoon and have been told that currently my embros are at 6 cell and grade 3 (which my clinic classifies as 10% fragmentation) This is day 3 after egg collection. What I want to know is - Is it possible to achieve a pregnancy with fragmented embryos and is 6-cell enough for day 3?

Thank you so much for all your time and the reassurance you give to us all.

love
Kerry

Dear Kerry,

These embryos sound perfectly OK to me.

Good luck!

Peter
