11 follicles but only 2 mature eggs
I had 11 follicles but only 4 produced eggs and only 2 of these were mature. Is anyone else in the same boat? Do u know why none of the rest produced any eggs and what I can do to improve this? Xxx
Claire stay positive u still have 2 mature an hopefully both will fertilise. In my previous cycle i had 4 collected only 3 mature and 2 fertilised, this time i took pregnacare before conception, dhea 75mg and ubiquinol 2 × 100mg. I had 6 eggs collected and all mature although only 3 fertilised. U cud try that. I also don't use any plastic containers or drink out of plastic bottles etc it contains a chemical think it's called bpa that can damage eggs. Stay positive r u finding out tomorrow about fertilisation?
Hello, I'm just wondering, were you prescribed DHEA by your clinic? Did you have any side effects? Thank you
I was not prescribed DHEA by the clinic but you can buy it online
Best to buy micronised
I get mine from the states x
Hello, which one from from the states did you get? My husband is going to the states next week. Thanks
Yeah I wasnt prescribed them either, I got them online. Get ur hubby to get them when he in the states cause the micronized ones I struggled to get online. My clinic knew about them but just said they would b interested to c if they made a difference.
Hello, do you know if DHES are proven to help? Do you think they made a difference? I wonder why it's not here in the UK, it always makes me a bit worried when somethings not available in the UK but is in the USA.
Well I picked it up from this forum just. Well I just think i had 3 mature eggs last time and 6 this time not sure if it made the difference but something did.
That is better, did you have any side effects?
No side effects thankfully, only 3 of my eggs fertilsedbut 2 of them were 8 cells. My last embryos were a 7 and a 6 cell. I'm not sure if they made a difference but def didn't do any harm. Good luck xx
Was it amh good? And did they do bloods at all your scans?
Hiya this was my last cycle unfortunately it failed this morning. I'm not sure what my amh level was they didn't say. But I think I have a low response xx
Hi Claire I don't have any answers yet but my cycle last month was similar; 11 follicles, 7 eggs, only 3 mature. We have our follow-up tomorrow so I'll let you know what the doctor says.
I had a very similar situation to this. First round was about 16 follicles and only 3 eggs. I was terrified of round 2 as nobody had an explanation. Was Ovittrelle your trigger injection? My new clinic said they had had mixed results from this and now don’t use it for this reason. Good luck with your 2! Xx
Yeh it was pvitrelle we had I was devastated ... 2 really after all that 😂
Our round is over got a bfn this morning xxx
Stay strong, dust yourself off and build yourself back up to try again. I found the short protocol worked much better for me in terms of numbers of eggs xxx
Short protocol what's that xxx is it just less days xxx
There isn’t the long ‘down reg’ (Apparently my ovaries didn’t like this at all) before stimulation meds, so it’s a shorter course of medication, straight to stimulation. They would usually try the short protocol if you haven’t responded well to the long one.
I got 13 eggs from 21 follicles 2nd time round (although they timed it wrong & only 2 mature 🙁, which both fertilised)
My first round I had poor maturity (3/9) so on the next two rounds they gave me a 37 hour trigger rather than a 36 hour. I also switched to a menopur/gonal f mix not just menopur. I had much better proportions of mature eggs on both my next two rounds and there are no longer particular concerns around my egg quality, it was just that protocol which didn’t suit me. I’ve done pregnyl and gonasi triggers.
Out of the six eggs collected only two are mature so only they will only try to fertilise those two....
given low number of follicles? But it only takes one good egg and I’m not getting any younger and there’s...
apparent that I only had one follicle growing. An egg was collected which did fertilise so we had a 2 day embryo...
