    Hello all, how are you? What’s up these days? I faced many complications in becoming pregnant. I decided for embryo transfer. My dr advised me for this actually. Should I go for embryo transfer? Or not? My mother is very much worried about me. My husband is worried as well. Should I wait for more to become a naturally pregnant? I can not even sleep properly with this stress. Please help me with your experience. Wish me good luck. TIA.

    Dear nikilake,

    Statistics show that 30% of women who start trying to conceive are able to fall pregnant on the first menstrual cycle (1 month). 60% achieve it after 3 cycles (about 3 months), while 80% will get pregnant after 6 cycles (about 6 months). 85% of women are able to become pregnant after one year of unprotected sexual intercourse.

    If, after 1 year, and provided that you are 30 years old or younger, pregnancy does not occur, you should visit a fertility specialist. If you’re 35 years or older, this period is reduced to 6 months. So, if you find yourself in any of these situations, my advice is that you should definitely go for IVF.

    If you want to have a baby, time isn’t considered in any of the clinics. Because they try to get results and they always try to get the best results, results which suit your condition. Then, in the end they start the procedure. If you truly want to make your life beautiful make sure you have the proper treatment to get the best results. In the end it’s up to the doctor how much attention is given to you.

    Hi! I’m sorry you’re facing trouble conceiving. It’s dreadfully tough. But I’m sure that 2 years of unsuccessful trying are pointing onto conclusions. You shoud consult your doc the sooner the better. Because time never plays on our side during fertility treatments. Once referred to a fertility clinic you’ll get answers to what bothers you. They’ll find out the issues and offer the ways of solving the problem. I agree with ladies above – there are plenty of different options to achieve pregnancy. I would advise no more waiting.
    Me – 39 yo, passed 2 ivf cycles with ex partner (dx 0 low sperm quality). My AMH is extremelly low, right ovary never responded to treatment. Considering egg donation as well. One more thng – it’s easier to struggle the issue if you know it. Wish you all the best, hun

      Dear Angelie,

      If you’re considering egg donation, perhaps the following tool may be of interest: Cost Estimator for IVF & Egg Donation Treatments.

      Best wishes!
