Failed IVF cycle and negative pregnancy test. What did go wrong?

  1. <span  class="bbp-author-name">IceQueen</span>

    I’m so upset. I recently had my first embryo transfer which resulted in a negative pregnancy test. I’m so angry with myself, the doctor, embryologists, the clinic in general. I’m trying to figure out what went wrong. What else could I have done?

  2. Hi IceQueen,

    I’m very sorry about your story. IVF does not always result in success, and it is no one’s fault. You have to keep in mind that pregnancy is not a mathematical thing and that no clinic can guarantee you a 100% success rate. However, what does have a solution is what you say about the team at the clinic where you have done it. If you have not felt comfortable or the experience has not been good for you, I would recommend that you change clinics and that they give you a second professional opinion to better understand what has happened.

    To do this, you can access this useful tool: Fertility Report. You will receive a personalized report with very interesting information and advice on visiting the clinics.

    If you have any questions or would like more information, please do not hesitate to contact our specialist through any of the channels you will find here: Free professional help.

    Wish you all the best!

  3. I’m sorry to hear about your failed cycle. Going through IVF is stressful and complicated. Having any additional layer of stress is definitely not ideal while doing this. I am not sure if estrogen can cause anxiety. But your body and mind is going through a ton of it. I had definitely had extra anxiety since starting fertility treatments. But now I am having a ton of anxiety currently being off all of it! My body likes to wake me up around 5 am and play things out like a movie for me. The only thing I can offer that might help calm your brain a bit is doing yoga. Writing on here to people. Also writing in general. I have notebooks and word docs readily available for when I just feel like I’m going to explode but have no one to speak to. I think too accepting that its ok to feel this way is helpful. To remind yourself that it’s ok to be freaked and overwhelmed and to not feel guilty for that. Lastly, it’s not for everyone. But possibly going to see a counselor is also a good option before making mind around the further treatments. As you might have read from my previous posts we’ve been through egg donation resulting in a pg. Thus it took me 2 failed shots with own egg previously.

  4. Sorry about your negative result; don’t be discouraged. It takes time. I am about to start my second IVF.
    I have done alot of research on mind and body relaxation. I hope it helps.
    What are you plans?
