ICSI - no egg fertilized

JJ08 - January 20

I and my husband are having IVF/ICSI-treatments at a local clinic. We are the kind of unexplainable infertility case. I am 37 and my husband is 55. He also has diabetes.
Our first treatment went well though I didn't get pregnant. They took out 12 mature eggs and the sperm quality was good, they said. They divided the eggs and did ICSI with 7 of them. The standard IVF didn't result in any fertilization of any of the eggs, but all the 7 eggs treated with ICSI got fertilized. On day 3 we got two nice 8-cell embryo, the rest didn't divid normally. So I got one embryo back and they froze the other one. I didn't get pregnant so we went back for another treatment after I got my normal period.
It went well this time as well in the beginning with the hormon-treatment and all. They got out 16 eggs, fine quality and the sperm looked fine. But when we called back to hear about how many eggs were fertilized, they told us that none of them got fertilized. They said that the guy who did the ICSI was the most experienced one at the clinic, they simply didn't know what happened. They said they were shocked and you can imagine how shocked we were after hearing this. We really wonder how this could happen? We are devastated. What went on in that clinic? Is such a thing possible?
In the end they offered to try with the frozen embryo this time. It was frozen on day 5. But we don't know if it will survive the thawing tomorrow. How big is the chance? Does it matter that it got frozen on day 5?
Thank you very much in advance if we could get some answers. This is a very very difficult time for us.
