One egg + One sperm

One egg + One sperm – that is all we need. However, we are always encouraged by seeing larger numbers for either of those two parts. We are playing a numbers games here. Lets say we harvest 20 eggs, all of them should be fertilized, and only 40% will make it to day 5. That would leave us with 8 embryos to transfer. The embryologist will transfer the best two of the eight. Which, ultimately will improve our chances of getting the BFP.

So DW had 14 counted/measured yesterday, and was told there are many more that are too small to count. She’s had her Gonal F injection reduced to 150. It appears the drug is doing its job and we will not be short of eggs.
