Just had my first egg retrieval last week (35). 19 eggs were retrieved, 18 mature and fertilized. It’s day 3 and 14 are still growing. Should I assume another 50% drop off rates until they are blastocyst? I’m doing PGD also and know I will statistically lose a bunch at that point also. This week is torture, does anyone know how to speed up time????

Sorry I can’t speed up time but those numbers are promising! Statistically yes, you’ll see a 50% drop off from day 3 to day 5, then another 50% for PGD. That’s 3-4 genetically normal embryos which each have a 40-70% chance of implantation depending on embryo quality, uterine lining, etc. I’d say that’s pretty good odds!

Caveat: that’s the average. And we all know averages are pretty meaningless without variance. In fact, I had 3 high quality genetically normal embryos fail and we’re looking into other underlying issues. But it still helps me to focus on any data I could get my hands on.

Good luck, keep us posted!!

Sounds promising to me! And agreed there is so much variation. I have diminished ovarian reserve at 34 and only got 5 eggs but 2 embryos made it to 5-days and both came back PGD normal. I’m now due in a week with a baby from the first embryo. So anything can happen!

I had 24 retrieved and ended up getting 6 normal PGD tested embryos. 4 are good quality and 2 are average. So yes, odds are 20-25% normal.

Thanks ladies. Looks like only 5 made it and are being sent to PGD now. A little disappointed but hopeful one or two come back normal 🤞

Help me out, everyone seems to be having much milder symptoms with Omicron.

Has anyone taken part in sperm sorting at their clinics to give a better chance of choosing X or Y sperm in IVF? My clinic has a study where it can skew girl 60/40% but the working hypothesis is that the abnormal Y sperm will fall down with the heavier X sperm, so there might also be a higher chance of aneuploidy. Wanting other people’s results on this. If not, on IVF genders in general - are you getting more boy or girl normal embryos?
