We have a daughter conceived in 2011 via a FET. Since 2012 we have had 3 failed cycles of ICSI trying for a sibling. We have been told it is an egg quality issue. I manage a good number of eggs but after fertilisation these dwindle. My question is, how can we overcome the egg quality issue and achieve success? I am taking vitamins to boost this issue. Also my cycles are still between 34-36 days. We have no male factor issues. Initially classed as 'unexplained infertility' but it appears my eggs outer shell are too hard hence why we need ICSI.

I am sorry to hear that you have had 3 unsuccessful IVF attempts. Unfortunately there is no evidence to suggest that supplements can improve egg quality. You could have treatment using donated eggs which would increase your chance of success.
