Hello and sorry to bother you as i appreciate you are busy but i just have a query that would be great if i could get some advice.

I have had 4 IUI's (1 bio chemical) and 3 IVF's. Each time when it came tot he embryo transfer the embryologist said that there were alot of fragments around the embryos and that they weren;t of great quality. Does this effect the outcome and is there anything that i could be doing differently. The consultant said on the last consultation after the negative result that they might consider changing my medication from puregon to menupor.

Sorry to babble but i hope you can make this a bit clearer for me.

Many Thanks for your help

Yes, overall fragmented embryos are less succesful than non-fragmented although I have seen perfectly normal pregnancies arise from heavily fragmented embryos. No one knows the significance of fragments really. If you repeatedly produce fragmented embryos then a full embryological review of your case would be useful.

and is there anything that i could be doing differently.

Possibly, a review would identify this

yes, and changes on the lab side might help to.

Good luck!

Peter
