How many more times should you try if the first IVF cycle fails?



so if a cycle of in vitro fertilization does not result in a pregnancy there are a lot of different reasons why that may be and the reason as to why that may be helps us answer the question well how many more times should you try it the initial cycle gives us a lot of information and that information can vary greatly for example if the reason why a pregnancy didn't result is because the woman is incapable of producing normal eggs and therefore not capable of producing normal embryos then you probably don't repeat it if there's a low response and a compromise whereby the patient produces a small number of eggs and embryos or perhaps the embryos don't grow well there are things that we like to try to adjust both in terms of medications as well as the environment in which the embryo may grow so then we think that the cycle ought to be repeated with some adjustments made if a patient does not conceive because the embryos are mostly abnormal genetically then it is possible that repeating a cycle would be a good thing to try to see if that compromise and the genetic content of the embryos is a relative compromise or an absolute compromise so there are numerous reasons why cycles fail and each reason is associated with a different answer of how many cycles should you try but this shouldn't go on forever it should be with an end in sight and the next step if the patient is assessed to be not potentially fertile depends widely upon the individual may include third-party reproduction such as ovum donation which works very well for people with poor ovarian responses or perhaps gestational surrogacy which works very well for women with abnormal uterus is so everybody is different and the answer to the question of how many cycles do you do varies so I think we have to treat that as an individual issue you

  1. Oh, yeah! I guess this is really important to know for everyone. So, yeah! My OBs said that we can try at more of 3 attempts. That's just enough. Thanks for the video! I agree with some of your points here.

  2. I HOPE YOU CAN HELP ME WITH MY PROBLEMS, I HAVE BEEN UNDER IVF THERAPY FOR TWO CYCLE NOW, ONE MONTH APART EACH CYCLE. I HAVE TO TAKE A LOT OF INDUCTION INJECTION FOR MY FOLLICLES TO GROW, UNFORTUNATELY, MY FIRST UNDER GENERAL ANESTHESIA FOLLICLE HARVESTING WAS NOT SUCCESSFUL. AFTER THE HARVEST, MY DOCTOR CALLED ME ON THE 2ND DAY AFTER THAT INVASIVE PROCEDURE,AND TOLD ME THAT MY EGGS JUST STOP GROWING. HE SAID THAT MY EGGS DID NOT EVEN GROW FROM M1 TO M2, OR THERE IS ONE EGSS THAT GROWN TO M1 TO M2 BUT THEN THERE IS AN ARREST, ITS JUST STOP GROWING, SO NO ICSI OCCUR BECAUSEHE SAID THERES NO USE OF DOING IT SINCE MY EGGS STOP GROWING, HE EVEN SAID THAT ALL MY EGGS WERE ALL THE SAME THAT NOT EVEN ONE SURVIVED FROM M1 TO M2, THEY ARE ALL IN THE SAME STAGES AND THEN ALL STOPED GROWING. AND THE SAD THING IS THAT MY SECOND INVASIVE PROCEDURE UNDER GA FOLLICLE HARVESTING, IT HAS THE SAME STORY, SO THERE WAS NEVER A FERTILIZATION BY MY HUSBAND SPERM OR ICSI OCCURED.. I ASKED THE DR, WHAT MIGHT BE THE REASON, AND HE SAID IT MIGHT BE GENETIC. I WAS DEEPLY SAD WITH THAT NEWS, DOES IT MEAN I WILL NEVER HAVE A BABY? OR IS IT BECAUSE HE HAS BEEN OVER INDUCING ME? OR WHAT MIGHT BE THE REASON FOR THIS? PLEASE I HOPE YOU CAN HELP ME WITH THIS AND TELL ME WHAT SHOULD I DO TO HAVE A GOOD EGGS.. GOD BLESS YOU!
