Hi, i'm sorry to here you had slightly low fertization, it's not all bleak though, honestly.
'average' fertilization is around 60-70%, so at 50% you were only just under. Bear in mind that not all 6 eggs were necessarily mature and capable of fertilzation too.
The 3 you have now, have every chance of continuing to divide and being capable of making good quality embryos that can make a baby, try to focus on that.
I hate that phrase, it only takes 1, so I won't say that, but in reality you can only have 1 or 2 transferred anyway and very few embryos are capable of being frozen, so you just don't need lots.
My amh is the same as yours, for my first IVF we had only 5 or 6 follicles visible, then somehow we had 24 eggs retrieved. I felt such a relief. Then, despite no male factor issues, we only had 2 fertilize. I was devastated so I know how it feels. My two didn;t make it that cycle, but I googled waaaay too much at the time and I can tell you there are plenty of good news stories in similar situation......IVF is a survival of the fittest embryos and right now you have 3 embryos that are surviving
out of 6 eggs collected only 3 have fertilised... dont know what to think... could they start dying off now?
I just wanted to give you some hope (I had seen your post on one of the other forums). I know of three people who had success with 3 or less embies.
My friend at work had 3 eggs collected. 2 fertilised and were transferred - as a result she has a lovely little boy. Her friend had similar stats and had a little girl.
I am the third, I had 5 eggs collected, 4 were mature, 3 fertilised with ICSI and I had two transfered on day three. The third wasn't good enough to be frozen on day 5. I am currently 8 weeks pregnant with one baby.
I can completely relate to how you are feeling at waiting and worrying on how they are doing but hopefully this gives you a little reassurance that positive outcomes can come from three or less embies. I also found looking through the success thread helpful and focused on the ladies who had fewer embies.
Toch, thank you SO SO much... Its so good to hear from someone who understands. I really appreciate it. I will let you know in the morning how the 3 are doing. We are cycling in Prague at the moment and its 12 midnight here now. Thanks again and congrats xx
Hey Nell thanks for your thoughts and being so caring :-)
We got great news today that all three are now grade A and going strong. Clinic want us to do a day 5 transfer! Im nervous tho incase they dont survive to day 5!!! Tomorrow is day 3 so we will see how they are in the morn.. if all three are still @ grade one, is it worth the risk going to day 5?!!! head is wrecked! But so so so so so relieved :-)
