Hi -- I'm new the board.
Does anyone have experience with False Fertilization.?
I'm trying to find out information for my best friend who's currently attempting her 2nd IVF treatment.
She underwent embryo transfer on Saturday July 31st.
The doc insterted 2 embryos with 8 cells each. Now she is 2ww.
She had 11 eggs removed and was told a day before the transfer only 2 eggs were viable... but the day she went in for the transfer the doctor told her 2 more eggs fertilized but could be false fertilization and lead to genetic problems like down syndrome or spina bifida.
She had the choice to do all four eggs or the 2 original eggs.
She decided to only transfer the 2 original eggs.
Now she's seconding guessing herself and wondering if she should have done all 4 eggs.
Does anyone have experience with False Fertilization?
She does have the option to freeze these eggs and use them later.
Your advice is appreciated!!
Oh BTW my name is Kelly my friends name is Shari.
She and her husband have be ttc for the past 6 years.
She's tried clomaid, a.i. and ivf.
I'm so scared and excited at the same time... I want this to work so badly.
I'm afraid she won't be able to handle another disappointment.
