Although there is no maximum number, it must be based on this woman's prognosis and the statistics of the results. The vast majority of gestations are achieved in the first 3 or 4 cycles of IVF with non-frozen embryos (50% gestation per attempt and 90% in four cycles); after that, it is much more complicated, but not impossible.
What is the maximum number of IVF attempts a woman can have?
