How to find out why your IVF cycle failed - a guide for intelligent IVF patients

One major problem with IVF today is the fact that the chances of an individual IVF cycle failing are always higher than that of its succeeding.

What makes this so complex is that there are multiple reasons for IVF failure , and it's not easy to sort out what the reason in your particular case was.

It's helpful to use the following simplification when trying to figure out what to do after your IVF cycle fails.

You basically need to figure out if the cause of the failure was something that is out of your hands , or something that can be corrected .

For example, if the reason for the failure was poor quality embryos because of diminished ovarian reserve , then this is a biological constraint for which doctors don't have an effective solution. One the the other hand , if the reason for the failure is a bad IVF clinic which transferred embryos on Day 2 or Day 3 and didn't even bother to provide you with photos of your embryos, then this suggest this is a very correctable problem , and all you really need to do is to change your doctor and find a better clinic - one which will provide embryo photos and do only blastocyst transfers.

This is why it's so important that IVF patients learn to analyse the treatment they are receiving, and the right time to do this is actually before you start your IVF cycle , so that you can ask your doctor intelligent questions , and make sure that you are getting world-class medical care , rather than finding out only after the cycle has failed that you got cheated and the doctor short-changed you by not following Global best practices .

The good news is that often the reason for the IVF failure is a bad IVF clinic, and a better IVF doctor can easily correct this.

Therefore there is no reason to get disheartened just because your IVF cycle fails . All it means is that you need to invest in Information Therapy , so you can become a well-informed patient . Not only will this reduce your chances of your first IVF cycle failing, it will also increase the chances of your second IVF cycle succeeding !

IVF treatment is too important to leave up to the doctor, and that's why you need to be an actively involved patient, because there is so much at stake.
