Just wanted to know if there is anyone out there that is having/or had IVF/ICSI treatment? We're in our first fresh cycle, had egg extraction last friday (11 eggs, 10 viable) and embryo transfer this past Monday. We froze 6 eggs, and fertilised 4. One didn't get past 3 days, we transfered the second, and froze the last 2 on day 5 in the blastocyst stage. I have a unicornate uterus, so we only transfered one grade 2 embryo. Only testing in 2 weeks' time...it's sooooo long to wait Any advice?
Looking forward to hearing from you all.
In the end we didn't have to do ICSI, but did artificial insemination instead. It went extremely well and I got pregnant on the first try. I'll be 8 months pregnant on Sunday.
My suggestion is to do any and all treatments at a time when you are able to relax, because relaxation was key to my conception (I was on leave for a few weeks afterwards).
IVF and ICSI can be very taxing on your body (and pocket), but if you try to relax and believe that it will work, it's much more likely to be a success. Best wishes, and I hope all goes well in your quest to become a mommy!
