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

Hi hereitgoes,

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.

Good luck in your cycle.

Just wanted to drop back in to say I hope your 3 embryos are still thriving in the lab today, I know how nerve-wracking it is waiting for news.

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 :-)

That's great news

The clinic will guide you tomorrow on what to do, but if all 3 are still the same grade then pushing to 5 day transfer will help pick the best v's guessing.

Of course, there is some risk in leaving them the extra 2 days.....how many do you plan to transfer? 1 or 2?
