Dear Peter

I have recently failed my 5th ICSI attempt. This time our fertilisation rate was very poor. I had 26 eggs collected, of which 24 were deemed good enough for injection but only 9 fertilised.
I realise this is very poor for ICSi and was wondering what the possible reasons could be?

My consultant has queried the quality of my eggs before - could this be a factor? Or sperm quality or even embryologist skill?

Would like to know what may have caused such a poor fertilisation rate?

Many thanks
Kerry

This is a very poor fertilisation rate for ICSI and suggest either a technical problem or a sperm/egg problem.

See above. You need to ask what the overall ICSI fertilisation rate is for the clinic. It should be 85-95%.

My consultant has queried the quality of my eggs before - could this be a factor? Or sperm quality or even embryologist skill?

Any of the above. Further investigation is needed.

See above,

Good luck!

Peter
