We are looking at starting IVF/ICSI (male infertility) round two soon and I am looking for advice as to what we should ask at our follow up appointment and for anyone else who has had similar experiences but went on to have success.
Our first round went really well on paper - 2 embryos, 5AA and one 4AA - one 5AA was transferred fresh ending with a BFN and we went for the frozen transfer a few weeks ago and on the day of the appointment were told our 5AA didn’t survive the thaw and that our 4AA had not done very well and had 50% cells survived and had then re-expanded to 60%. Our clinic has a 95% thaw survival rate so we have either been very unlucky or their was something wrong with the embryos even though they looked top quality.
I’m now struggling with negativity and am worried there is something else wrong besides low sperm count - I am waiting for results of NK tests - I asked for them rather than being recommended them - our consultant says it is likely just bad luck and he wouldn’t change anything for our next round - we can’t really afford many more attempts so would rather have any necessary tests now whilst we can afford treatment! Every time I ask whether PGS testing may be necessary the consultant says we don’t need to worry about that yet...
Sorry for the long post but I feel really lost and hope someone can offer guidance from their experiences?
Thanks in advance! 🤞
