I have been feeling depressed for the last two years. It started when I decided to start conceiving and everything was falling apart when I was diagnosed with infertility issues. After struggling for years I have decided to visit a doctor. It is so hard and annoying that I cannot give the biggest happiness to my husband.
I respect him a lot and love him a lot. We started our first IVF cycle few months ago and I have been hoping ever since that I will get pregnant. It is a very difficult situation and I believe in nature and nature has the strongest influence.08/23/2017 at 9:26 am
You’ve only given one try to IVF. My advice is that you try it again before moving on to another infertility treatment. Let me remind you that the success rates of IVF are as follows:
– 20-25% in women younger than 35
– 15-20% in women aged 35-39 years
– 6-10% from age 40 onwards
I hope this helps,

I really appreciate you for the information. I will apply your suggestion and will go for the IVF one more time. The first cycle was so bad and It was totally disappointing for me.

The first question that arises in a patient’s mind after an IVF failure is ‘Why did my cycle fail?’ A failed IVF cycle is heart wrenching. It is painful because your dreams are shattered, your hard-earned money has gone down the tube and you do not know what to do next! As humans we all need an answer for the failures we encounter. Why did a particular endeavor fail? If we get an answer for this, then we tend to have peace of mind, because we believe that we can achieve success the next time around if we can rectify what went wrong in the previous attempt. But when an IVF cycle fails unfortunately no one has an answer for the same – not even your doctor! You might have had a perfect cycle – lots of eggs, good fertilization rate, good quality embryos, excellent endometrium, easy embryo transfer – but no positive pregnancy test! On the other hand your friend might have had a very poor IVF cycle (with few eggs and poor quality embryos) and they might end up getting pregnant! IVF is like a gamble – which involves not only your money, but also your fragile baby dreams! The sad truth is that there is no logical explanation for the outcome of an IVF cycle – be it a success or a failure.10/12/2018 at 10:02 am
Good nice post08/06/2018 at 8:27 am
I’m sorry to hear about your problem. And it hurts so much there are so many of us struggling. I’m on the other side of the fence now. We’ve been successful after DE IVF shot performed in ukraine. On the whole this was our 3rd shot of treatments. We tried 2 cycles ivf with my ex. I was 39 yrs old. My ex had low sperm quality. And my right ovary seems never responded to treatments. Later my amh level turned out to be 3% only. My weight was 12 stone 7lbs. Our new dr felt no good about moving into another round ivf with my own eggs. She told us it was not going to work, in other words, chances were almost zero. So we turned to donor eggs. Our donor produced many healthy egg for us! At the ET they placed back 2 nice embies and we ended up with bfp.
The reasons ivf doesn’t work may be very different. And it definitely irritates when you pass multiple shots and get no luck. You should investigate well with your dr. The reasons, possible improvements and ways out for you. You need to be patient. Hope things will get to their places soon. Wishing you the best.08/15/2018 at 11:30 am
