Egg and sperm don't bind together


We had out first round of IVF this month after 2 years of TTC. 

I had my egg collection yesterday and 13 eggs were collected - i got the heartbreaking news this morning that 0/13 fertilised in the night.

All looked fine in the lab - 10 of my eggs were mature and the sperm was swimming around. They said that they just didn't bind. They said need to discuss options with us now - maybe ISCI.

Guess we now have an answer but its not really a solution as eggs and sperm not liking each other doesnt make me feel at all confident about having a baby.

Has anyone had this happen where the eggs and sperm just don't 'recognise'/'bind' with each other and come out with some good news? In a very sad place and need some hope.
