hi all, haven't posted in a while but on my 2nd round of IVF now after 1st round failed in July. on day 10 of injections and had a scan today, and was told 8 of my follicles have developed very quickly so we have had to bring forwards the egg recovery date - was supposed to be Monday, but have been told to do my trigger injection tonight and will now go in on Friday for egg recovery. am quite upset about this, as it means we are only have 8 potential eggs - there are another 10 follicles there that won't be ready in time, but my consultant said we can't afford to wait for those ones to catch up otherwise we will lose the 8 that are ready now. also an added stress (tmi warning) is that as we weren't expecting it to be this early my other half hasn't ejaculated in about 10 days, and now he can't as its less than 48 hours to go. I know they say it should be no less than 2 days before a sperm sample but no more than 5 days - is this likely to really affect our chances?
