Last scan before egg collection and there were only 6

I had a last scan this morning before EC and there were only 6. I am booked in for Tuesday for EC. I've been put on long protocol to try to get more eggs as last time we only got 9. I feel really down about this tonight and can't help wondering if we have enough to work with as I know they don't all fertilize. Has anybody else had similar experience? X

6 is fine...some follies have more than one egg. Plus I have learnt from my experience that lots of eggs doesn't necessarily mean its better. My new clinic deliberately tried to make sure I didn't get many eggs this time to try and improve the quality. So I truly believe its not quantity it really is quality.
If ur worried about fertilisation could u have ICSI?

Why do they want you to get more than 9..? 9 sounds like a good number to me.

I had 7 follies the first round of ivf that led to 5 eggs 4 fertilised and 3 survived to day 2 had a 2 dt and the result of that is a 3yo son.
This time I had 13 follies and I got 6 eggs and have just started 2 ww.
It just goes to show its not the number of follies my clinic says its more important the quality of the eggs.

Good luck with your treatment.

We actually only had two at our last scan before collection and by the time it came to collection they got 4. One of those four is a little two year old now sitting having his lunch!!

It really only does take one! Lots of luck xx
