Embryo quality and success rates - experiences please!

Hi everyone

My first round of IVF (including 3 FETs) was unsuccessful, mainly, the doctor thinks, because the embryos weren't great quality. He has never indicated their grading, which I see on the internet is often communicated at clinics. I'm in Switzerland.

Do doctors in the UK tell you what the embryo quality is?

This second round, where I have just had the transfer, also showed pretty poor quality embryos. He showed the picture and just from what I've seen on the internet I made that judgement.

Have others been told the quality grading was quite low and then they were successful?

One attempt to increase the quality was by stimulating less. Which we did, but I still produced 20 eggs (26 on the last round). It's still high I guess.

Thanks for any experiences on this!
