This is my first post and my first IVF cycle (NHS), so please forgive my ignorance.
I had my EC on Monday which went quite well I thought with 17 eggs, that eventually were 10 embryos.
I got a call this morning, Day 3 to say all but 2 embryos are at the stage they would expect today so they want to wait until Day 5 on Saturday and hopefully blastocyst stage.
I asked the embryologist how many they may implant but also how many they may freeze and was told they only freeze for 1 in 8 couples. I was quite bemused as my DH and I were told early on by a nurse before I started my meds that if we had any good embryos viable for freezing then they would, meaning it still counts as 1 cycle on the NHS. I know there's no guarantee any will be good enough to freeze but the conflicting information has concerned me.
I know I should just be happy as not everyone can access the NHS and I am. I may be over thinking this but can anyone help?
