Posted 03 November 2021 - 02:21 PM



My partner and I just did our first cycle of IVF.

Female: 35 year old female, right sided hydrosalpinx which was surgically fixed.

Male: 37 years old, male factor infertility, 10% motility and approx 10 million sperm/mL


First Cycle:

Gonal-f, Leuveris, and Leuprolide trigger as my partner is a hyper-responder.



19 eggs retrieved, 9 mature eggs, 6 fertilized by ICSI, 3 blasts frozen. 



We would like to pursue another egg retrieval prior to embryo transfer as we feel it is better to create embryos while the female is younger. We noticed a large dropoff from number of eggs to mature eggs. Is there anything that can be done to improve that? 


Thank you for all your expertise.


Thank you.
