My wife and I recently completed our 2nd egg retrieval, and we believe we had some complications. We are hoping someone can help us clarify what happened and perhaps, what we can do about it.
We followed all directions as lined out, and my wife took her trigger shot at the exact time she was meant to. We arrived at the stated time and, in fact, everything we were directed to do was on time.
The potential problem – during the egg retrieval, the doctor stated that my wife was already in the process of ovulating, and we wound up losing 60% of her eggs. The doctor had to rush to retrieve the rest. My wife was left very sedated after the procedure, and the doctor explained just that – she ovulated early, and we lost eggs… and that was it… No one else around to answer our questions.
I was wondering if anyone can offer some insight:
- Is this normal? Has anyone heard of this before?
- Does anyone have any suggestions of questions we can ask our doctor?
Any other insight would be much appreciated as we are sitting here feeling very much at a loss, as we are in the 40's age range and every egg is critical.
