Hi, i was doing ivf with ICSI backup. My first cycle was cancelled pre egg collection due to my poor response. They could only see 2 decent size follicles.
This cycle they upped my meds to 5 amps of merional. I had my egg collection on Monday and they retrieved 5 eggs..but they have said only 1 was mature. My husband did his sample on the morning of EC and they asked him to do a second sample pretty much straight after as they said the sperm quantity was low and they wanted to top it up! We got a call later that day to say they were proceeding to ivf ( the embryoligist said they didnt know at that stage that only 1 egg was mature.
Our one egg didnt fertilise. We're devastated. Weve now been told the mature egg looked fine and the sperm quality was good.
Has anyone else had such a poor response to the stimms? Does this count as a full cycle paid by the nhs if they dont have anything to implant into the womb? Should i push for ICSI next time?
