This is my first time posting here. Just wanted to share my experiences on the IVF/ICSI treatment.
I am 34. My first NHS funded cycle was failed last year. It was a mild / short protocol. 5 eggs collected, 3 were mature but none of them fertilized. The result was bad eggs 🥚 I was shattered.
In london, my area would only fund 1 cycle plus I have low AMH. They were generous! After a few months of the failed cycle. My fertility consultant called me and offered me another round. I was so so grateful. He said I will be put on long protocol for getting better eggs. Before egg collection, I have taken some supplements- mixed vitamins, D3, Q10. 5 eggs were collected again. But this time has a better result. Out of 5, 3 were fertilized as they looked so good and the embryologist doesn’t know which one to choose. So they asked me to wait for day 5.
Everyday I was so worried I would received a call telling me they didn’t made it. Today is my embryo transfer, I had 1 top quality blastocyst The other 2 don’t look very good.
I will be doing my pregnancy test in about 13 days. Every step is so miracle. I don’t have so much faith but at least now I knew I do have some good eggs.
So people out there, don’t get disappointed if something hasn’t happened yet. It will happen eventually.
Good luck to everyone !
