Hi Red sole, I am so sorry for what you have been through, and I am afraid I can't be of any help...I am sure someone will be along very soon with some advice. Were you on immune drugs for this cycle?

Hope the consultation goes well today and they do fund again for you xfingers good luck and let us know xxx

Hi hon.
I cant guarentee what your cons will say ref funding, but go in there armed with arguments to state your case, should your fear be the case.
Surely they can not refuse to fund another cycle based on 1 try.
I only had 2 eggs mature before my last cycle and there was a fert issue. I still got another go.
The first cycle is more a trial and error and a learning curve. I dont know what meds you were on or protocol. My second go this time tound was short protocol and 375iu Gonal F.
I also took royal Jelly. Listened to Zita West .
I got 12 eggs of which 6 were mature. So something trebled my egg count.
I know yours had no shell and it is a different ball game, but on one go, they can not know for certain that it just wasnt one of those things.

Good luck honey crossed* xfingers

Like taxi home says the first cycle kind of sorts out what you actually need. They may adjust your dose to a higher one for the stimulation phase hun but I can't see any reason they would refuse you another go if your intitled to it. Try not to get to disheartened just write down every question you want answering down on paper and take it in there with you so you don't kick yourself when you come out and realise you forgot to ask something.
Good luck lovely keep us posted xxxx

Hi Red,

I also only got 2 eggs on my first cycle and it was abandoned because they were not ok to use, i was on long protocol for that first cycle, my second cycle I went on short protocol due to low egg reserve and had got 6 eggs, 5 fertilised and 2 went to blastocyst and were put back onboard so to speak, we got our BFP on 13th November and so please don't give up hope and I hope you get the funding sorted out.

Good luck xx
