Over the summer we had our first cycle of IVF (ICSI) which ended up being "freeze all" as I had 28 eggs collected and clinic protocol meant that they would not allow embryo transfer to take place.
Of my 28 eggs, 23 were mature and 17 fertilized via ICSI. On day 2 they froze 5x ave/good quality 4-cell embryos. They tried to grow the remaining embryos on to day 5 and told us that 4 got to the blastocyst stage but were D grade quality and couldn't be frozen.
I know I should be positive that our best 5 embryos are in the freezer but it's so hard not to worry that they won't develop either.
Anyway, we have our review appointment with our consultant next Tuesday and I'm trying to get my questions ready for him.... is there anything that I really shouldn't forget to ask? I presume he will explain the next steps but I don't know how much I can find out about what went on this time - why did they "let" me over stimulate (my drug dose stayed the same through the whole cycle)? Can a large number of eggs mean they are poorer quality? What is the chance that none of the 5 frosties will be good enough to transfer?
I feel like I've been on such a rollercoaster and think the appointment could well end up being a total cry fest so how can we make sure we get the most out of it? Ant hints and tips gratefully received! Thank you. x
