Unless fertilization failure has occurred with IVF, we usually take into account all cycles done with both techniques before deciding to move on to another treatment such as egg donation. Even though each patient is different, the average number of IVF attempts recommended is 3 or 4 at our clinic.
As regards the number of IVF attempts before giving up, does it vary if it is conventional IVF or ICSI?
