Look, if that’s all that gets retrieved, then it can be. There are so many other factors other than just getting a baby. I know It seems like getting a baby is the only thing but for some women it’s a process of closure and you need to just get that egg and see what happens. Maybe it’s enough, maybe it’s not but in other situations, maybe that cycle might have been transferred to an IUI or a different treatment option rather than IVF with only one egg but if one egg is retrieved, we don’t stop – we keep going and we see where we end up.
