Another thread got me thinking...

Has anyone had poor fertilization report with their ivf cycle? If so, what caused it?

In our case I did antagonist protocol, no bcp before hand, all my hormone levels and tests were normal but i reponded quickly to stims so I may have fried them. But I don't know for sure. Our known issue is low sperm count.

At egg retrieval they got 14 eggs, 10 were mature but only 2 fertilized with icsi. And the two that fertilized were slow to grow and didnt look so good by day 3 so we transferred them on day 3.

It ended with a chemical.

Anyone have any insight or was in a similar situation as us? I'm terrified of having such a poor fert rate next time. We changed clinics since.
