So, if we have too many eggs, we need to see if the eggs fertilized normally with IPSI or IVF conventional but if for example both are fertilized, in this case, we will be able to say we have good embryos for transfer and if we have pregnancy or we have an embryo suitable to freeze it would be a good thing

Two eggs can be plenty for IVF if that’s what you’ve managed to produce. I’ve definitely seen pregnancies from a single egg retrieved that managed to make it all the way through and get transferred and make a baby. Obviously the odds are getting a bit lower if you’ve only got two. You’re putting more of your eggs in two baskets – if that makes sense. Yes, two eggs is enough for IVF. Often, if you have a scan before your egg collection and they see that there are only two follicles, they might make a decision to switch over to a different treatment style rather than doing IVF but IVF is still an option even with two eggs.

About this question:

Can you do IVF with only 2 follicles?

Usually clinics are accepting patients under the age of 35 with very low AMH for IVF as the quality of the oocyte is expected to be sufficient to create euploid embryos. Two eggs can also be sufficient to succeed.
