Follicles and eggs

Postby Sweetness » Fri Mar 10, 2006 1:15 am

Looking for someone who may have had the same experience as myself. Yesterday I had my ER and out of only 9 follicles, there were only three eggs. The other six follicles were empty, of the three eggs, only one was mature and fertilized. So we have one embryo waiting to be transfered on Saturday. Has anyone ever gotten BFP with just one embryo? I need a little pep talk...17 years ago I had a tubal-ligation, the worst mistake I ever made...

Thanks,
Sweetness

CAZx,

I just now read your reply and here it is Wedensday the 15th, sorry about that. Thanks for you're story it helps a lot, we are not able to afford ivf for another go around it is now or never I'm afraid. I'm happy though that you can keep trying until you are out of eggs like you said. I'm still concerned about only having one embryo, but a lot of woman have a bunch more and still never get bfp! I need to count my blessings and there are a lot of them, I just want to be able to give my husband his very own child. He has been a wonderful father to "our" daughters, he practicly raised them from the time they were 4 and 6 years old. I know that whatever happens is the Lords will and it is not for me to question, but more than anything I pray I'm pg anyway. I will know on March the 22nd, that is my date for my pg blood test. That is still a week from today, I'm going to go nuts! I'm trying real hard to take it easy but I'm getting cabin fever! Again thanks for the encouragement and for telling me a little about you're history, that was very kind of you. I hope your dreams of having a baby come true for you, it seems that you have gone through a lot.

Take care,
Sweetness

You need to read the "It really only does take one" thread in the General Forum. I think that will give you a lot of hope!

Best of luck to you for a BFP!!!

Lisa,

I did read that thread about "it only takes just one" yesterday but thankyou for trying to help. I had my post-op apt. today from my e/r last Wed. I'm doing fine, they just wanted to know what symptoms I'm having since then. Sore breasts and slight abdominal cramping, but otherwise I'm fine. I'm still bloated from all the fertility shots, I was on such an aggressive amount, and I still only ended up with three eggs. None of my doctors really know why that is, but before I left today guess what the nurse practioner said? You're right...."it only takes just one"! So if you dont mind me asking why were you're tubes damaged? Hope to hear from you soon...

I had a hydrosalpinx in both tubes and had surgery in 04 to correct them. After the surgery - dr. said that he unblocked the tubes and drained the fluid - but the damage was pretty extensive and he really didn't feel like I would conceive on my own. He have me a 20% chance. So we tried for 18 mos. or so and now here I am, going thru my first cycle of IVF.

Another tidbit of info - I was misdiagnosed for years as having ovarian cysts - from the time I was 16 yrs old! I would get excrutiating pain in one side or the other and the docs would do ultra sounds and confirm they were cysts. I found out from my RE (same one who did the surgery) that I probably never had a cyst - they were seeing my bloated fallopian tubes on the ultra sound and mistaking them for cysts. Aside from surgery - the only sure way to diagnose blocked tubes is an HSG.

Anyway - that's my story. Good luck to you with everything. There are a lot of BFPs lately - I hope you are one of them!!

Hi Lisa,

Thanks for the imformation, I also have hydrosalpinx in one tube and my other tube is obliterated. I found this out last year in March that my fallopian tubes would never be repairable. I believe this was caused by my tubal-ligation surgery. In my case I had no problem getting pg. I just was getting divorced and in a very bad financial situation which left me with not many options. I had two children under the age of 4 and our future was uncertain and I was very afraid of getting pg again so I felt the tubal was my only option. Low and behold I met my prince charming two years later, fell in love got married and could not give him a child. So in my situation I feel I'm to blame, most infertile women seem to be born with these problems, and I caused mine. I'm so sorry you were mis diagnosed by your earlier doctor, that is to bad. I had that dye test you were refering too back in 1995, it made me feel like I was having menstral cramps, but with mine the test showed my tubes open to a certain point. Back then the doctor had to do a laproscopy to see if the other ends were repairable. Well that's when my hopes were shattered, the langauge used to describbe my tubes were heart breaking. We were told then that my uterus and ovarys were healthy and that I was a perfect candidate for IVF. Anyway here we are 11 years later both of us pushing 40 and wanting to have a baby of our own so bad. My girls are now 20 and 18, my younger daughter will be 19 in May. Folks that I have told about this for the most part are supportive, a few think it is nuts to want to start all over again. But those folks have children with their spouse and they would not understand anyway. Thank you so much for sharing some of your history with me, I've probably gone on to long about my situation. I do hope your dream of having a baby will come true, at least I have had children in the past, a lot of ladies can not say that...Much luck to you and your dh.
