Help, wondering if an ICSI done 24 hrs after retrieval yields an okay Embryo?
This is what most embryologist term 'rescue icsi' and is usually used when there is failed fertilisation with ivf. It does produce embryos and pregnancies but the success rates are lower than fresh ICSI.
Not sure why we needed this in the first place since we didn't need it last time but I need to know the reality of the situation.
You need to ask your clinic why this was used. I assume that it was for the reason above.
I had a 9wk miscarriage last time,
Have you had a clotting screen and immunology screen? If not that might be worth doing before your next embryo transfer.
I am not sure I can go through with transfer if there are not good chances of having a healthy embryo. Does a last minute ICSI truly work well?
See above, if you get embryos then they are always worth transferring.
