The IVF coverup - how IVF doctors fool IVF patients when their IVF cycle fails

Most patients are mature enough to understand that IVF cycles will and do fail in spite of the fact that the doctor has done their best .

The problem is many doctors add insult to injury when the IVF cycle fails , and blame the patient for the failure .

They trot out specious reasons, such as – You didn’t rest enough; You were too stressed out; You ate too much “hot” food !

All of these are completely false . Once the embryo has been transferred into your uterus, it is complete safe, like a pearl in an oyster.Nothing you do can harm them , so please do not worry about this. And the embryo doesn’t care whether it spend 5 days in the fallopian tube, or 5 days in the test tube ! Please do not let your doctor lie to you.

The problem is that when doctors offer these silly reasons for the failure, the patient loses confidence in the doctor . Even worse , some doctors advice expensive tests ( such as ERA ( endometrial receptivity assay) , PGS ( preimplantation genetic testing) and immune testing to “ diagnose “ the reason for the IVF failure !

This makes no sense to me. Why would the doctor wait for an IVF  cycle to fail before advising these tests, if they were really useful ? After all, it’s in the doctor’s best interests that his patients get pregnant !

The good news is that patients are now getting smart enough to understand that when a doctor changes his tune after the failure, this often means that they are covering up the truth, and not being open and transparent with them .

The problem is that once they have had a bad experience with one IVF doctor, they don't trust any other IVF doctors either !
