Hi

I have now had 2 cycles of ICSI (sperm antibodies) and have both failed.

1st time we collected 10 eggs, 6 fertilised and they tx 2 x 4 cell embryos (1 grade 4 and 1 grade 3, Grade 4 being the best 1 being poor).

2nd time we collected 12 eggs, injected 8, 5 fertilised and tx 3 embryos. 2 x grade 3, 8 cell and 1 x grade 2, 8 cell.

Both time no pg. They have explained its probably the quality of the embryos and I could really do with blast tx. I know I have a better chance but is it quite possible to get pg by having grade 3 embryos (normally have fragmentation?????????

I dont think we have any chance of getting any top grade embryos and feel that we wont succeed on the grades we have.

Many many thanks.

Sorry

Forgot to say that I have an underactive thyroid, although have been in the normal range and stable for 2 years now.

Diet isnt brilliant but not too bad, dont drink but I do smoke 10 a day.

I would agreee

Yes. I have seen hundreds of pregnancies from embryos such as yours.

Have a go at blastocyst tx if you can.

Good luck!

Peter

Many many thanks.
