IVF (In vitro fertilization) via ICSI

User Profile
Back in year 2000 I went through infertility treatment,got pregnant through my first IVF and gave birth to a healthy boy. At that cycle the Dr. retreived 17 eggs which 10 got fertilized both naturally and through ICSI. This year, I wanted to repeat the treatment. Dr. decided that a micro ZIFT is a better choice. They retrieved 10 eggs. 4 was fertilized via ICSI and transfed into my fllopian tube. The other six went through ICSI. The whole cycle was a failure. I didn't get pregant and none of the eggs became embryos!! Now my question is why none of my eggs got fertilized in the lab? SHould I repeat the cycle? Thanks

It seems likely that your eggs were fertilized but the fertilized egg-cells didn’t successfully implant into the uterus’s mucosa (endometrium). The reason for that is still unknown to medical science. You can repeat the procedure, because that is the only possibility currently practiced to fertilize the egg and facilitate conception.
