The recommended number of attempts is variable, although we can establish a recommendation of between 3 and 6 attempts. However, this number will be mainly conditioned by the patient's age. We do not recommend this technique after the age of 38-40 years, since, after that age, the poor oocyte quality that is assumed decreases the chances of success with this technique.
