Why didn’t all my embryos divide?
After a sperm enters and interacts with an egg, the egg is regarded as being fertilised. The next step is growth of the fertilised egg followed by division into two cells. Sometimes the fertilisation process is not normal. Perhaps more than one sperm or an abnormal sperm enters the egg, or maybe an egg is not normal. In these situations normal division and growth of the embryo may not occur. Sometimes division of the fertilised egg is delayed even though fertilisation is normal. In this case it is just a matter of time before division occurs.
