Greeting from the US, I hope this email finds you all well. My husband and I would like to ask a few questions.
1. How is our surrogate doing? We worry about her having enough to eat and being safe.
2. We would like to know why only 2 of my follicles were aspirated.

Dear Brett and Rebecca,
Please note that your surrogate is doing good and is taking all her medication on time. She is also taking complete bed rest right now.
Please also note that we aspirate all follicles at the time of doing the egg retrieval. However, in most cases of poor responders (who require very high doses of gonadotropin injections), it is often observed that the number of eggs retrieved is low and does not correspond with the number of follicles seen at ultrasound.
Please feel free to ask any further queries.

Now what is everyone's experience with this? First of all, the embryologist's report says 2 follicles aspirated, 2 eggs retrieved. Dr. Kadam says all follicles were aspirated but some were empty. Second, if the follicles are of a certain size don't they usually contain eggs, only maybe of poor quality, will have to ask some of the other girls.
