View Full Version : How many cycles ?

July 11th, 2016, 07:26 AM
Hi, I have completed 4 cycles with no embryos for testing. I always get approx 12-14 eggs with approx 4-5 fertilising. They however struggle to get past day 3.
I am looking for any stories of people who have had to go through multiple cycles to get success. I am cycling in Australia and have had approval fro sex selection due to a genetic condition. I am 38 and cycling at a very good clinic. I am just wondering if my luck is up. I can think of nothing else at the moment.
Appreciate any advice support

Hi there. I'm sorry you are struggling. What was your pretesting like? What is your AMH and FSH levels?

The fertilization rate is low so those eggs are not making it to maturity. What meds have you tried with stims? How many days do you stim before trigger?

DHEA or estrogen priming is something you can try to help egg quality.
