I also posted this at the RESOLVE forums, but figured I would ask the community at large here for help (feel free to respond over there if that is more comfortable for you!):
I am starting a list of questions for my WTF meeting, and one of my biggest questions is about the maturity of eggs retrieved for my first IVF. In total I had 17 eggs retrieved, 7 of which were immature. That just seems like alot to me. There has been no mention of poor egg quality, so I am wondering if anyone else has had so many immature eggs at retrieval and if so, what was the reason you were given? If you cycled again, what did you change and did it bring about more mature eggs?
Right now, my guess is that my dose of meds was bumped up too late. I was at risk of OHSS due to an extremely high antral follicle count, so started out at 75IU Gonal-F and 75IU Menopur for 6 days. I was then bumped up to 150IU Gonal-F and 75IU Menopur for the following 5 days. In all I stimmed for 11 days. Although the day of trigger I was ordered to give myself one final bump of Gonal-F that morning, which was another 150IU. But of course, this is just a guess, so any comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks ladies!
