Egg Retrieval Complete

Ohhhh...what a day it's been. And it's only 2pm. Ugh.

So there is good news. They got the egg. They told us there was a 10-15% chance that the follicle would be empty. So yeah for an egg.

And there's also bad news. They found 6 sperm, but none of them were moving. Which doesn't mean they are dead- but they just aren't really of good quality. They said there is still a chance that the egg could fertilize correctly, but this would decrease our chances of this cycle working by at least 50%.

I cried through the egg retrieval. I'm just sad and feeling so hopeless. The doctor said we should think about using donor sperm. I'm not prepared for that at all. At least not today.

I should get a call tomorrow to see if the egg was able to be fertilized.

  1. Hoping and praying so hard for fertilization Kathy. I know with MFI that every single time is a crap shoot. And I hate thinking of the heartbreak you felt this morning, as I assume it was similar to the canceled IUI we had when they only found 2 live sperm. I don't wish that on anyone, even my worst enemy, let alone a friend like you. Has he had some better samples that can give you hope at maybe freezing and combining a few samples or discussed with RE or Uro using a needle to get the sperm? I hope you get a fert report tomorrow and these are not needed but something to ask your doc about if needed. (((BIG HUGE HUGS))) to both you and YH today.
