In this episode, a listener asks about the reasons she did not get any embryos in her latest round of IVF. She is 37, and had 25 eggs retrieved. Here's what she has to say, "What are some of the reasons to get no embryos after a round of IVF? I'm 33 years old and me to 3.7 had 25 eggs retrieved, 10 mature fertilized, but none made it to day five. I'm heartbroken and confused."

I agree that this is heart breaking, and confusing. I would recommend speaking to your IVF doctor, and ask why they think why things haven't worked until now.

Get all of the information you can about your fertility diagnosis. IVF can give you a lot of great information, so ask your doctor very specifically for all your official reports. You want to know about the information from on the day of egg retrieval.

Ask your doctor if there were there any physical characteristics that they saw in your eggs that would lead them to believe that this could possibly happen.

Ask if there was there something about the eggs that makes them think that this could be an quality issue. And then also ask, if there something about the sperm that makes them think this could be a sperm quality issue, and lastly ask about the genetic screening that you've done and get those results.

You can tune in for my full answer, and the answer to other listener questions.
