Failed ICSI cycles

Postby mima » Sat Oct 18, 2014 10:31 pm

Hi everyone,

I'm new to this forum. Wanted to share my struggles and experiences with ICSI so far. We have severe male factor, my husband was born with undescended testicles which were repaired at a young age, so he has extremely low sperm parameters. I have been tested as normal. I have done all the blood works, had a hysteroscopy and looked at immune issues. I'm 27 years old and my husband 33. We have gone through 4 rounds of ICSI with no success!

ICSI: 1. 13 eggs retrieved no fertilization
ICSI: 2. 4 mature eggs, 2 fertilized: 2 day 3 grade A embryos transferred BFN
ICSI: 3. 13 eggs retrieved, 10 fertilized, 6 made it to blastocyst stage. 1 fresh grade B blast transferred BFN. 3 of the blasts were suitable for freezing.
FET1: 1 blast BFN
FET2: 1 blast BFN

Recently we decided to do a fresh cycle of ICSI in order to do PGD. however, in this cycle we only produced 4 eggs, 3 mature and NONE fertilized. (it was the same protocol as ICSI number 3.) we were devastated.

We still have one last blast from cycle number 3. But really don't know if there's any point using it, considering none of the fresh or 2 frozen have ever worked for usPosted Image

Any feedback and guidance would be much appreciated.
