Vacuoles

royanda - June 4

Hi Dr. Smith,

I just had ER for my first IVF. 20 eggs were retrieved: 4 didn't fertilize, 2 were single-PN, 3 were polyspermic, and 11 seemed to fertilize normally. There are several in the 11 batch that have vacuoles in them. The nurse described these as bubbles in the egg, and said it could point to an egg quality issue.

What exactly are vacuoles and what causes them? Do the vacuoles mean the eggs/embroys are not viable?

Also, for the single-PN and polyspermic, are these common?

Thank you so much!
RA
