Our little embryo didn’t make it through the thawing process. Embryologist kindly pointed out on the phone that ‘90% make it so this is very unusual’. I’m gutted. Why is this so hard?

Our lovely consultant called straight away. He explained that this ‘defrost failure’ has nothing to do with the quality of the embryo, it’s just down the sheer bad luck. Our embryo was the 1 in 10 that didn’t make it. This has been a really terrible week.

    That is just terrible news!! I think the important piece of information to hold on to (the positive in all of this) is that the consultant told you it had nothing to do with the quality of the embryo. THANK GOODNESS! Hoping you find the strength and the silver lining. Sending you massive virtual hugs and love.
