Hello Peter
I have looked through your previous questions and can't find my answer so I hope you don't mind me asking and apologise if it was there somewhere.

I had a VERY painful EC on Monday for ICSI and got 14 eggs, which after all the pulling about I was very happy about; however when they phoned me today only 6 had fertalized which I was obviously very upset about. The clinic told me that although I got 14 eggs only 7 were mature enough to use and so 6 out of 7 is good.
My egg collection is tomorrow and I just feel sick that when I get there I will only get what I got last time :- one at grade 2 , 4 cell and one grade 1 at 5 cell, or none of them will be any good. I then went onto to get a ++ but mc days after so it can't have been very good and that was after IVF.

I had a FSH of 6.7 this time is there anything I could do next time that would make my eggs better and go on to divide more so I get better grades for a better chance??

Sorry to waffle and thanks for all your help.

Love Clarexx

This is not good, I hope you complained about this!! EC should not be painful, uncomfortable yes, painful no.

for ICSI and got 14 eggs, which after all the pulling about I was very happy about; however when they phoned me today only 6 had fertalized which I was obviously very upset about.

This is true

My egg collection

embryo transfer?

is tomorrow and I just feel sick that when I get there I will only get what I got last time :- one at grade 2 , 4 cell and one grade 1 at 5 cell,

These are very good embryos! I can't understand why you are ICSI this time.

or none of them will be any good. I then went onto to get a ++ but mc days after so it can't have been very good and that was after IVF.

Why swtich to ICSI then?

I had a FSH of 6.7 this time is there anything I could do next time that would make my eggs better and go on to divide more so I get better grades for a better chance??

Not really but make your clinic justify why you need ICSI.
