Hi There, I am on my 2nd cycle of ICSI after a recent failed cycle. My husband is azoospermic and through a TESE biopsy, the DR was able to get 6 straws. On the first cycle, I responded very well to the meds and produced 12 eggs, 10 which were mature. 6 fertilized but only had one blastocyst to transfer which resulted in BFN. Most of the eggs arrested development from day 3-5.
Again, on the 2nd cycle I responded very well and went in for ER after only 9 days of meds. This time I had 9 eggs, 8 of which were mature. We added in the high magnifiication option and from a whole straw, they were only able to find 7 good sperm! Out of the 8 eggs, 4 fertilized. I am feeling quite uneasy about only having 4 eggs on day 1, particularly from the outcome of the first cycle.
I am wondering if anyone has any positive experience with ISCI and high magnification or IMSI ( another name at some clinics ) and whether anyone has had good results from only 4 fertilized eggs?
I am 34 with no known fertility issues
Husband is 31 with non obstructive testicular failure.
