I am new to IVF and looking for a support system. I am a 35-year-old single woman. I have spent a year trying to get pregnant through IUI's with a sperm donor. I had 1 success that ended in miscarriage at 12 weeks and 8 unsuccessful IUI's. I am now on to IVF. I am doing 2 egg retrievals before transferring an embryo back. I had my first retrieval about 2 weeks ago and am now back on birth control with an appointment in 3 weeks to see if my ovaries are healed enough to begin injections again. For the first retrieval, they took 8 eggs and were able to fertilize 7 of them. Of those, 5 grew properly but only 3 made it to the blastocyst stage and were frozen. I know I have another retrieval, but I am very nervous about only having 3 embryos right now! After the second retrieval and after the blastocyst is reached, all embryos will have genetic testing done so I worry I will lose more. How many have some of you had?
