We had egg collection yesterday - managed to collect 10 even after coasting for 4 days due to high oestregen levels. However, today we got a phone call to tell us we have NO embryos due to possible semen infection.
Naturally we are VERY upset at this outcome as this is the second failure yet we were so hopeful. I am now getting frustrated though because surely the clinic should have tested for any infections? They tested during the first cycle, surely they should repeat all such tests on every cycle? How can they let successfully collected eggs degenerate like that? DH needs to go in tomorrow so a semen analysis can be undertaken but we think it may have been either the jar or the petri dish that may have caused the infection - has anyone encountered this before? Do we have any rights?

Infections in the semen can come and go and not necessarily picked up even if one was done a week before. All equipment used is new and unused so the chances of infection is very remote. It would be worthwhile checking whether anyone else had failed fertilisation on the same day as this may indicate a problem in the lab.
I would definately have a repeat semen test done and have it sent off for microbiology analysis.

Hi Raya,

Spoke to u in the chat room - just wondering how it went at the clinic? Did you ask all the questions and get all the answers you wanted?

Waiting to hear, and hope you're ok.

Lol, F  :-*

thanks ruth

unfortunatly on e.c we were the only ones....it was a sunday they had opened up especially.
hubbie since been for second sperm test . results a bit confusing. no treatment required for sperm infection but some fungi infection which could have occured from sperm or 'other areas'. a smaller amount of infection  apparently in the 2nd sample although unclear whether this serious. rated it as +1 whatever that means - embrolygist was unsure. they are unclear whether it is for definate the sperm or something else but are assuming its sperm. Are conern was the state of room in which hubbie had to produce . two jars were in the room tissues on the floor not what you expect from private clinic. now hubbie unsuspectingly used one of the jars. could that have helped in the infection ?? our appointment was early morning, possibly the jars may have been left overnight. having mentioned this to the clinic they are looking at changing procedures ...normally this clinic is very professional; and i can only think reduced serivce on sunday may have caused this.......not sure really what to do next
