Getting fewer eggs than expected

Ideally, you have eight to twelve eggs and you and your partner are mightily relieved, because the more eggs that are collected, the greater your chance of having a baby. But what happens when you have only a couple of eggs — or worse, none at all?

Obviously, if you expect to get ten eggs and get only two, you may be disappointed. But this doesn't mean the end of the cycle — you can still progress to the next stage.

Finding no eggs is a devastating outcome that very rarely happens, but when it does this obviously means the end of the treatment cycle. If this happens you need to have a serious discussion with your doctor to find out whether this was just bad luck or is likely to happen again. This discussion can help you decide whether to try again with another treatment cycle.
